Dress For Success
"Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered." --Giorgio Armani
A person can look sharp and look fashionable for the part like when wearing business attire during a job interview or any formal occasion. It can help land you a job, close a deal and even leave a lasting first impression when you look like you can do the job.
As Coco Chanel once said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” If you want to be seen as successful and competent, dress the part. That means dressing impeccably each and every time you walk out that door.
Here are some tips to help you dress for success:
Wear conservative business attire to a job interview
In such professional settings, it’s what you’re expected to wear in the office. For women, this means having to wear a business suit or pants suit, or an appropriate dress and jacket to look the part.
You do not want to be seen as dressed inappropriately or give off the wrong impression that you don’t take your appearance seriously.
Wearing a sharp business suit can make you look serious which is never bad. But adding in a bit of flair to your look with simple accessories like a simple gold chain or pearl earrings for the ladies. Make sure to wear accessories that will compliment your clothing without overwhelming your outfit.
Wear minimal fragrance
You want to be remembered every time you step into a room, right? Well, you would do well not to overpower the room with your scent no matter how pleasant it may be. Smelling good can give others the extra boost of confidence but having an overpowering perfume may cause allergic reactions to others, as well as make you memorable for the wrong reasons. Stay simple.
Wear the right shoes
The best choice for dressing for professional settings is wearing closed toe shoes. Heels aren’t for everybody and wearing open toe shoes are meant for casual Friday nights really. Wear something comfortable, practical and easy to work in.
With these simple tips, you can have anything you want in life if you dress right. You can never go wrong by being the best-dressed person in the room.
