Have you ever uttered the words, “What am I going to wear to work today?” If so, then you need my Best Boss-Inspired Work Wear Edit at your disposal. Whether you work in an office, at home, from the coffee shop, or from literally anywhere in the world, what to wear to work day-in and day-out can sometimes be a challenge. Our lives are busier than ever, so rummaging in our wardrobes every morning for the perfect outfit can either make or break the day.
So, regardless of the industry, you work in—Imagine looking effortlessly stylish, polished and ready for success every day? Here’s how to do it at Nygard:
The Celebrity - If your work requires a more formal approach or if you are the spokesperson for your company, you can still keep it fresh and not stuffy by pairing together simple classic pieces. The key here is to keep the lines clean and to mix in an unexpected colour on one piece. Try a vintage or patterned scarf.
The Politico - Politics is one very hot topic these days but if you work in this field, now more than ever, you need to stay relevant to the communities you represent. So, take style tips from politicians like Chrystia Freeland or America’s Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Keep it young, fresh and on-trend.
The Editor - If you work in a creative field, such as design, fashion or the arts, then you have creative licence to add colour, patterns, textures and asymmetric silhouettes to your daily look. This can be great, but it also adds pressure to look ultra cool and stylish. But, if you stick to a budget and create a signature style, then you will get it right every time. Think Jenna Lyons and her signature heavy rimmed eyeglasses or Anna Wintour’s signature coif and sunglasses.
The Entrepreneur - If you run your own business, then you are probably juggling several roles – CEO, marketer, shipping & receiving. So, you need clothes that are comfortable but also dressy enough to meet clients or for meetings on-the-go. Make your go-to item a jacket, as it is versatile enough to take you from any scenario that pops up. If you want a look that’s a bit more tailored, then substitute the logo top for a classic white shirt.
The Fitness Blogger - If you are a personal trainer or have your own fitness & lifestyle blog, then you need clothes that look sporty but also professional. You may have to make adjustments in your attire quickly, that can range from travelling to meet a client to teaching a class, so look for athleisure layers that take you from casual to dressy.
The Coder - Computer programming has long been dominated by men, but luckily that is changing. More women are entering the field, and the World Economic Forum states that recent research suggests that women write better code than their male counterparts. So, if you are in this field, it is important to stand out to your bosses and rise to the top. Invest in smart business pieces that you can put on rotation to help you get it consistently right.

The rising popularity of handmade Rajasthani dresses have fetched them a market in the US and Canada and will be showcased there, global fashion leader Peter Nygard said on Tuesday.
"The handmade Rajasthani dresses are in huge demand in America and Canada. The exquisite handmade work done by artisans here is being praised by one and all in North America and hence I am keen to showcase this grandeur of artistry in the markets out there," said Nygard, Founder and Chairman, Nygard International, a company known for creating many firsts in the global fashion industry.
Initially, we focused on achieving the goal of ‘maintaining a business customer base of 150 current customers throughout the current fiscal year’.
Now, let’s focus on the goal of ‘increasing the business income by 20% for the upcoming fiscal year’. Remember, this is similar to what fashion mogul Peter Nygard focused on when faced with the 2008 recession. As he put it, he refused to join the recession and instead saw an increase of 25%.
It may be difficult to imagine such a thing—that you can actually refuse to join a recession—but Peter Nygard proved that it can be done. He appears to have a natural ability to effectively strategize to achieve his business goals, which likely greatly contributes to the reason he was able to turn his company into the multi-million-dollar success it is today.
One of the things fashion mogul Peter Nygard appears to be really good at is strategizing to not just address any threats to his business but to also take advantage of opportunities to be number one in his industry.
One of the reasons Nygard became ‘king of polyester’ back in the ‘70s, was because he focused on ensuring his product exceeded expectations. For example, he made it easily washable and with no need for ironing. He also focuses on making his products feel good to a woman’s touch and making the woman look and feel good in them.
Nygard would continually surpass the competition with new ideas for achieving his goals.
You may be thinking, “With all the choices out there, what style of handbag should I choose?”
Well, if trends are any indication, then this season’s darlings are all about the use of heavy metal embellishment. Luckily, you don’t have to like the music genre to participate but if you are, then rock on.
Whether studs, chains or plain old hardware, I have just the selection of bags to turn that frown upside down. All of these fresh, new bags can be worn day or night and are an affordable way to update your look for the new season—making them versatile investment pieces that you need to have in your closet.
Now that summer has come to a close and we are firmly in the grips of the fall season, I look back on summer 2018 in St. James constituency.
I was pleased to join Peter Nygard and the Hon. Pearl McGonigal at Nygard’s 50th anniversary celebration and ribbon cutting at their plant on Inkster Boulevard. It was truly an honor to bring greetings on behalf of the Province of Manitoba to such a deserving individual as Peter Nygard. This was a special memory for me as my father, J. Frank, participated in the grand opening of the Inkster plant fifty years ago.
Recently there has been some not so pleasant occurrences as it relates to a well known resident of the Bahamas and indeed Lyford Cay, Peter Nygard.
Free-spirited Mr. Nygard, has been the “go to man” for cultural and sporting events, both locally and internationally. Many teams, including national teams, travelling abroad, have enjoyed his unmeasured support.
Many with extreme medical urgency called on his good nature and experienced his generosity, without fanfare or publicity.
I would go on the limb and say that some key politicians and businessmen have exploited his free-handedness.
As a humane and sensitive gentleman, many who would not have been welcomed in Lyford Cay otherwise, have been able to visit and enjoy the amenities of Nygard Cay.
A man who has extended himself to help so many people cannot be all bad. He has shown his benevolence when many well-positioned Bahamians wavered.
His only sin is that he harboured too many “locals”.
So let us not rush to judge anyone, especially Peter Nygard, few of us are qualified to point fingers.
NYGARD International is reaffirming a mandate to enhance and advance all aspects of the lives of women. Known the world over for the design and creation of top selling women’s fashions, NYGARD is also taking a serious stand for women’s health and making Breast Cancer Awareness a prominent focus of the company.
“Breast Cancer awareness is top of mind for NYGARD associates 12 months of the year-- it is absolutely our corporate charity of choice,” says Peter Nygard, Founder and Chairman of NYGARD International. While October is traditionally recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, those working with NYGARD’s charitable platform, NYGARD for Life, are just as dedicated to this critical cause during the other eleven months of the year. They work with communities and organizations the world over to educate and fight for a single goal: the complete eradication of breast cancer.
NYGARD For Life sponsorships include an annual endowment fund to CancerCare—a national nonprofit organization that provides free, professional support services for anyone affected by cancer. Through this special fund CancerCare is able to bring in world class researchers to work at the NYGARD sponsored Breast Cancer Tumor Bank. Ultimately, all monies raised through NYGARD for Life directly impacts Breast Cancer survivors and furthers the much needed research to find a cure.
