Host Kela Walker Gives Us Tips For A Bomb Work Wardrobe

Style

Through stories and statistics, we have learned that dressing for success leads to success.


While rocking a tailored suit may be considered dressing for success, it is also important to incorporate your personality into your career looks. I will admit that for years I chose to wear more classic styles because I was fearful of what my coworkers would say. Tyra Banks said it best, "Never dull your shine for somebody else."

We should all feel empowered to be the perfect balance of Annalise Keating and Cookie Lyon in our respective workplaces.

We all strive to be booked, busy, and blessed, much like style aficionado, Kéla Walker. This #girlboss is a seven-time Emmy nominated television host, producer, and life and style content creator. Kéla manages to boss up 24 hours a day and keeps it super stylish while she does. She's the woman we all strive to be with her bubbly but relatable personality. There is never a moment we aren't wondering what she's wearing and how she so skillfully curates her outfits.We follow her on Instagram, not only for inspiration, but to see how she's able to infuse her personality into her work wear.

"I work in a creative environment so the dress code policy isn't very stringent," Walker said. "As a result, I get to wear whatever I want, but I'm no slob. I wear a lot of dresses, matching sets, and dressed up denim. I feel smart and most stylish when I wear a dress—specifically a great fitting shift or sheath dress with a pair of killer heels. I feel like the boss even though I'm not."

Though dress codes can vary between offices and industries, Kela gave us the scoop on how we, too, can look stylish at work.

Here are her suggestions for how you can feel like a boss (even if you aren't—yet):

1.Shop Smart

"Everyone knows the popular spots like H&M, Forever 21, and Zara, but one shouldn't turn their nose up at fashion from places like Kmart and JC Penney. They have some great pieces at competitive prices. You shouldn't spend a lot on pieces you're only going to wear for a couple of months. Also, check out Target. They have an incredible fashion department outside of their designer collaborations. Really you can shop anywhere, all you need is the style and know how to make pieces work to your benefit."

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
