Do you want to be taken seriously at work? A good way to do this is dressing well. I will try and help you by sharing these secrets that are proven winners.
The aim of dressing for work is to come across as competent, secure, professional and polished. A basic fashion instruction is, if the piece of clothing is distracting then its usually inappropriate for work.
Remember the golden rule for fashion. The DETAILS. A nicely kept image is what you are looking for. Choose manicured nails, scuff-free, polished shoes, neat and stylish hair that’s not too artsy for the workplace. Spend more for a tailored suit. People are impressed when they see a well-formed suit that projects a fabulous image. Designer labels are appropriate for work, but don’t broadcast them. They will look very cluttered and it screams out that you’re desperate for attention when you wear too many logos.
Try to get fashion ideas from your boss. Dress like them. If you’re boss dresses fairly conservatively, go for a similar look, with your own type of style. If they dress liberally with an artsy edge, hop in for a similar look. Always dress so you have your own personal touch, but don’t veer to far from what they have accepted in the office.
Never dress to sexy, too casual, or too lazy, this includes denim, see-through clothing, shorts, wrinkled clothing. Have fun with your look at work, you can experiment with these kinds of clothes elsewhere very often, so get some clothes that are comfortable and make you look like a million dollars.
