Having a power outfit will instantly increase your confidence, helping you better communicate with others. When you feel good, you’ll perform better. Trust us. You should hear our CEO’s speeches when he has one of his custom suits on!
-Make sure you don’t over accessorize.
Necklaces and rings can be a great way to showcase your unique personality, however too much will only be a distraction. Make sure you avoid over-accessorizing to eliminate any unwanted attention. In a world where first impressions matter, make sure you stand out for the right reasons and not the wrong ones. A piece of advice; before you leave the house, take off one accessory to avoid this issue.
-Avoid dressing yourself head to toe in trendy fashion styles.
We all enjoy the latest trends, however, dressing yourself in them in a business setting can leave a negative impression. You might impress the younger crowd, however, trendy fashion can come across as unprofessional. You want to present a look that says you are serious about yourself, your skills, and what you have to offer. Our advice is to avoid trends altogether and stick with classic pieces for a timeless look.
-Everyone should own a blazer, period.
A blazer is that one piece of clothing in your closet perfect for any occasion. You can dress it up or dress it down, depending on the situation. Women and gentlemen alike can all benefit from a versatile blazer, as this item is a professional must!
-Don’t be afraid to wear color and texture, but be careful!
Patterns and color are a fun and exciting way to showcase your unique personality. There are so many ways to incorporate them into your business wardrobe. However, be careful if you choose to go down this path. Make sure you are using colors and patterns in an appropriate manner. You don’t want to distract others from who you are because of what you are wearing. Keep this in mind as you have fun incorporating pieces of color into your style.
