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:
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!!
Any evening dress and assorted purse for women and for men dark suits with ties assorted.
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.
