WORK WEAR - DRESSING FOR SUCCESS IN BUSINESS
Updated: Oct 19
Are you dressing for success in business? Do you take pride in how you present yourself? Does your image align with your business branding? These factors are so important when you present yourself in the world of business.
It is a well-known fact that how we look and dress affects how other people perceive us. It takes less than 30 seconds to make a first impression, so you can't underestimate the importance of looking the part. Dressing your best in the workplace is essential for your career or your own business brand.
“Dressing well is a form of good manners” Tom Ford
The most fundamental rule to dressing well is to know your style and how to dress the best for your body shape. I believe that, whatever you wear, comfort is key, so keep your look simple, stylish and smart as well as accentuating your true character and personality through your clothes. Dressing well will give you inner confidence and a feeling of power when you present yourself in the workplace. Looking and feeling your best will contribute in helping you clinch that all-important deal in the boardroom and raise your credibility as a serious player.
How you look reflects your attitude towards your work. In this modern era most workplaces have adopted a relaxed dress code, but if you're not careful a jeans-and-t-shirt look can end up being sloppy. This attitude towards how you dress will not help people take you seriously in the workplace or if you run your own business. If your image aligns with your brand values you can make a stronger impact in promoting your business and generating more sales.
However, you can still look presentable by mixing smart and casual pieces to create a winning outfit. Here are some great examples of smart/casual work wear.
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Coco Chanel
In the corporate world you may need to dress formally to create the right professional image. The general consensus is a sharp black or navy tailored suit with a white blouse and black shoes. This does not always have to be plain boring; you can elevate your style by letting your personality and individuality shine through with the clever use of complimentary colours and accessories. Simply add a colourful blouse or a unique necklace to your suit. Even adding a bag or some classy statement shoes can really change the whole look of a work wear outfit. Here are some of my favourite ways to style your corporate look.
