When it comes to dressing for work — or for an interview — men have it much easier than women. Tie or no tie? Jacket or no jacket? That’s about the extent of the decisions that need to be made. Women have a lot of options, which is great, but it also leaves a lot more room for failure. Here are our favorite tips from this great infographic geared toward women who are both style- and business-savvy:

  • Keep perfume to a minimum. Your coworkers may be sensitive to certain fragrances.
  • Bangles can be distracting — if your jewelry announces your presence before you do, it means you shouldn’t wear it.
  • Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. That means being overdressed is OK!
  • Make sure your hair is completely dry before entering the workplace or an interview.
  • Dress like you care.
