Whether we like it or not, how we look and dress affects how we are perceived by others. You dress how you want to be addressed, plus life is too short to wear boring clothes. It is critical to project the perfect image though your fashion. Also, dressing well is a form of good manners. I intend to tell you the best advice for dressing to impress in business, party, going on a date, or just going to the local supermarket. Rule #1 for dressingk is know your own style and to recognize its possibilities and limitations. It is important to adopt a mode of dressing that is easy, tasteful and classy and that fits your own character and personality. As the famous Mark Twain stated "Clothes makes the man, people have little or no influence on society".
Personally, I like to dress comfortably. There is nothing more comfy then stepping outside in some sweatpants, sneakers and a t shirt. But sometimes we just cant take that risk, So we need to follow the code of clothes ethics, even when we cant enjoy to be comfy. You dont want to dress like a slob if you want to dress to impress. If jeans are allowed, then wear nice jeans (darker are better) Gotta clean those shoes, make sure you have a nice shine on them. Its important to dress to boost your confidence. When you look good, you feel good. Your physical presentation should be on par with the quality of your work and the reputation of your business. Looking your best isn't about vanity, its about investing in self-improvement. Keeping high standards for your image will help you feel happier and more successful. Its key to send the right message. It's important to look your best and live up to the expectations of your audience.
Many professionals feel they cant afford to be fashionable, but you can show your personal style without overspending. Quality over quantity is the key for me. Purchase only items that send the message you wan to convey. Details and accessories can really make the outfit. For men, a nice watch and classic sunglasses will add a touch of class to any outfit. For women, jewelry, shows and bags can really make the difference from a bland outift to standing out from the crows.
In the past few years, I have kept the colors I wear to a minimum. Black, blue, gray, red and white are the main colors I have sticked with, and it has worked wonders for me. I use to dress in many vibrant colors like yellow, green, pink, orange, beige, etc. but learned the hard way that it was very hard to match, it was not very masuline, and if I had a more laid back approach to dressing that I would ultimately be perceived as a sharper dresser. I had to dress like I was embracing life, not hiding from it".
