3 Hacks Every Boss Woman Needs to Maintain Productivity Presented by H&M
Hack #1: Utilize a capsule wardrobe
As a busy boss woman that may not have enough time to truly spend picking out a different outfit each day of the week, utilizing a capsule wardrobe will be a true life saver! A capsule wardrobe consists of a collection of a few essential pieces (whatever you may deem essential based on your personal style), that are always on trend and don’t necessarily go out of fashion such as a classic white t-shirt, a nice fitted pair of denim jeans, a biker jacket, or a black blazer.
Essentially, these are all considered items that can be a part of your capsule wardrobe because they can be augmented with other seasonal pieces. If you’re wondering how to add variety, accessories are an inexpensive way to add personality to your capsule wardrobe looks. With the creation and utilization of a capsule wardrobe, this will allow you to be your most productive self and focus less of your energy on selecting an outfit and more of your energy on your bigger tasks. Here are a few examples of capsule wardrobe pieces:
- Tan trench coat
- Denim jacket
- Black pea coat
- Leather jacket
- Black T-Shirt
- White T-Shirt
- Gray T-shirt
- White linen shirt
- Stripe shirt
- Little black dress
- Cashmere sweater
- Cable knit sweater
- Blue denim jeans
- Black denim jeans
- Black leggings
- Black bootie
- Heeled pump
- White sneakers
Hack #2: Pick your outfit out the night before
OK so this is a big one! How many of us wake up each morning wishing we could have a few extra minutes to sleep in?! Same sis! Well, a minor solution for this is to simply pick out your outfits the night before. This is something many of us may have practiced since grade school, and we’re probably finding out just how helpful it still is even as a working woman!
Take a little extra time before heading to bed each night to prepare your outfit for the next morning. You’ll not only be thankful that you did, but you’ll also realize just how smooth and productive your mornings are because you aren’t having to take the time to slow down and find an outfit.
Hack #3: Stick to a “work uniform”
Sticking to a work uniform goes hand-in-hand with creating a capsule wardrobe. Instead of having to take the time to pick out a new outfit each day (or night as we suggested in hack #2), sticking to a specific work uniform during the week will boost your productivity and save you so much time!
Opting for a very minimalistic, comfortable yet professional wardrobe for your work uniform throughout the week will alleviate the unnecessary stress picking out an outfit sometimes brings. Incorporate a little pre-planning into selecting your work uniform because the goal is to remain your most productive self.
By incorporating these 3 hacks for staying productive into your everyday routine, you will not only be able to take command and control of your tasks, but you will also remain productive and focused on the most important tasks at hand—something every boss woman needs!
