Dress to Impress: What Not to Wear and What to Wear!
There's a saying we should dress accordingly to the situation. Then, what about in business situations? What should we wear and what should we not wear? Whether we like it or not, how we look and how we dress affects how we are perceived by others. That’s why in business, it is so important to project the right image through your fashion.
1. Dress Comfortably Dress comfortably, if you want to dress to impress.Dress as though you were going to meet the CEO of the company or customers for the day. That way, you will look like you care about your appearance, which will impress others. Also, dark clothing is reported to make you look more professional.
2. Black or Blue: It Suits You When it comes to dressing for SUCCESS, the easiest and most widely accepted attire is a blue or black suit. This would be applicable for men or women. Now that said, dressing up the suit with some color is a good idea as well. A colored shirt or blouse and complementary tie or jewelry can make the look complete. Invest in a tailored suit in each color and you will make it very easy to decide for yourself what to wear every day.
3. Always Dress Up and Not Down When in doubt, wear a suit and tie. If you are sure that business casual will be OK, wear a starched dress shirt, dark trousers, an appropriately matched cashmere sweater, and polished shoes. Jeans and a T-shirt never impress. Stay away from these in all business situations.
4. Be Memorable!
Wear appropriate business attire, but let your personality and individuality shine through! Whether your signature piece is a pin or a scarf, or even a belt, let your presentation pop with a more noteworthy accessory. But don't get carried away...too many embellishments can clutter up an outfit and end up looking overdone.
