Dress the Part, Get the Part

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

What we wear on the outside matters to others, and it should matter to us – especially in the workplace. When you want something that others have the power to give you, combining hard work and intelligence with a dynamite fashion sense can work absolute miracles for you professionally. After all, the age old saying “dress for the job you want, not the only you have” still rings as true today as it ever has.

But, how does one pull off such a stunning personal metamorphosis? Here are some simple steps to help you stand out:

Ignore Casual Dress Code

This is for companies that want their employees to “feel at home” in the office. That’s all well and good, but you’re not at home, are you? You’re in professional environment with a hierarchy and many different people vying to stand out for a better position.

Dress to impress every single day. Don’t just roll out of bed. Put some time into your attire, match colors, wear accessories, make sure things LOOK and SMELL clean. Business casual is now your mantra, every day.

Switch Things Up

Be bold. Try new and different looks that reflect your personal taste but that also make sense. Staying in your comfort zone is something everyone else already does. Vibrant colors (think pink, fellas), leather shoes, a new form-fitting top, and stylish accessories help you get noticed and help you reinvent yourself with confidence.

Sweat the Small Stuff:

Tie clips, the perfect bag, a smart belt, cuff links – see where we are going? Small pieces of your whole outfit can make all the difference and show that you are paying close attention to the most-minute details. Take the extra time and go head to heels; checking that things look right and help you to create a razor sharp look you’ll love.

Invest In Yourself:

Don’t be afraid to splurge on yourself. We don’t mean pay more for trendy labels, we mean in order to make your ensemble stand out, you can spend the money (within your means). Once you earn that promotion, or go for the coveted position you have had your eye on, the ends will more than justify the means.
