How To Dress For Success

DRESS FOR SUCCESS!!
Isn’t it true that you want to impress your clients, win contracts that are great for your company and “breathe” professionalism throughout your whole person? To achieve these objectives it’s not enough to only be as competent and
informed as possible , you also have to win your credibility and to impose yourself through a proper wardrobe – which by the way has different rules, depending on the work area. And don`t forget accessories are hugely important, so if you are going to wear jewellery make sure they are of the elegant and classy variety.
Working in a corporation
If you are working in a law company, a bank or a consultancy, the best is to pick classic and stiff clothes, two pieces suits with pants or skirts, which would have to come in neutral colors such as black, grey, military green or different shades of brown.
Working in a more casual or modern environment
Are you working in publicity, journalism at a newspaper, radio or television? Then you probably want to have an outfit as distinctive as possible so, although you are not the centre of attention you are not easy to ignore! It is always important to remember that you have to wear decent clothes, adapted to the requirements of your profession. The so called
“casual – elegant” style is the best choice in your case. You can wear maybe jeans, a blouse or a
coat as long as they are a little formal and the colors bright but not too bright. Also a watch is always a good item to have in these sort of professions.
Working in service industry
If you are working in a hospital, restaurant or beauty salon, your image has to be the image of a friendly person on which you can rely on at all times. If you like wearing a suit pick happy pale colors or even red can be worn in this case. Also, you can wear sweaters, shirts and blouses with funny drawings or designs on them.
No matter what your working place is, sometimes you might find yourself holding in your hand an invitation to a rather select and pretentious event, and on that invitation you can read the
words black tie. Don’t know what that means? Actually it is all about a dressing “code” which in our present day is not as strict and rigorous as in the past centuries. This means less rules but because of this the borders between formal and casual are very subtle and there can appear confusions. Here are the most important three styles included in this code when it comes to party invitations:
Formal
This term says basically that we cannot wear jeans. The formal code applies to events like cocktails or parties, and we will dress accordingly. Black makes an excellent choice when faced with this situation. For men, tie is a must, even if they don’t like wearing it!!
Black tie
Any evening dress and assorted purse for women and for men dark suits with ties assorted.
Casual
In this situation, you can wear something less conventional, pretty much anything goes!
Of course a suit is ideal both for men and women, regardless of the moment of the day. Jeans are to be worn only if they are simple, without any “fashionable” add-ons. Men can wear the pants from a suit and a coloured shirt.

Jewellery Maketh The Woman But Not The Man

Granted this is not an objective viewpoint but we are a broad church and there is room for all here. I will probably get accused of being old school and stuck in the dark ages but I believe that jewellery looks great on a woman but rather naff on a man at best. With women a piece of jewellery can enhance their outfit or their particular look. A beautiful necklace or bracelet, some fabulous looking rings, a stunning brooch, some gorgeous looking earrings, or some other type of body jewellery.

With men it just makes them look either far too flash or just plain ridiculous. Some of the worst cases can be some gaudy pendant, some great big blingy rings or ear and nose piercings. They might as well have numpty written large across their forehead!

Women wear jewellery in the main to look stylish and classy, they take great pride in finding the right jewellery for the particular outfit they will be wearing and they ensure it all matches so they look the part (I know I am generalising here to the nth degree but bear with me!). And they know they can fair turn a mans head if they get it just right which many of them invariably do.

Some men think they are wearing jewellery to look stylish but little do they know that no-one apart from the seriously deluded (and I accept that there are more of the seriously deluded around than is good for the rest of us) think that they look at all dapper.

Now there is also the case of body jewellery such as nose studs, lip studs, nipple piercing, eyebrow piercing and tongue piercing. Again some women can carry off some of these types of jewellery and they can even look rather fabulous in some instances, but men in the main tend to look like demented thugs.

So in summary if you are a man and you think you can impress the girls (or maybe the guys) by wearing some bling then you may just like to think again. Instead I would try to find a stylish shirt to wear or get yourself a new haircut, or maybe a natty pair of shoes or loafers as they are much more likely to do the trick. Be a real man and wear good, stylish clothes and leave the bling to some other poor deluded fool.

Jewellery Can Be Worn Just About Everywhere!

Jewellery is a huge part of many peoples individuality nowadays and many go hand in hand with the tattoos they have emblazoned across parts of their body. Jewellery can be worn on the ears and wrists and fingers as is tradition but now the options are endless with jewellery available for noses, lips, nipples, toes, genitals and anywhere else you can think of.

There is a very good article on jewellery which describes all the types of jewellery along with all the different types of material that can be used to make it.

On the material available it says “There are many types of materials that jewellery can be made out of, from gold and gold plated to silver, surgical steel, acrylic, glass, bioplast, titanium, silicone and also natural materials like wood, bone, tooth, coral, fossils and gemstones. Natural materials can in fact give you some very unique, distinctive and quirky pieces of jewellery and are well worth checking out.”
