Do you want to be glitz and glamour, or would you prefer a more toned down denim or leather casual look? Are you a Studio 54 sequins and satin lycra? or are you more of a hippy, peace signs and wooden beads? Are you more edgy punk? Are you a cowboy from a western film made in the Seventies, or a cowboy from the village people?
What are you going to feel comfortable in? What are other people going to be wearing? Would you like to push your boundaries and surprise your work colleagues with your imagination and outrageous daring? or would you prefer to walk the line and simply set the tone in a basic way, not straying too far from your current look?
