Dress For Success


Being well dress does have a profound affect on how you are perceived on the work place and on the way you are considered when opportunities of type arise.  So, here are a few starter thoughts regarding workplace dress and appearance.

Principle 1

You are not dressing for a job interview.  Your are dressing for success, which means you are dressing to have an advantage in the everyday completion of the workplace.


Packaging does matter; being well dressed can improve your success because:

  • You will feel more prepared for the workday
  • Being well dressed projects more power and authority
  • It can help your appearance/presences by offsetting the losses of youthful physical attributes as you age.

Principle 2

Think of your office suit or outfit as a uniform, and treat as one. Always clean, wrinkle free, and well cared for…etc.


Color matters: your daily dress should project

  • Power,
  • Professionalism,
  • Preparedness,
  • And respect for the companies’ dress code and, if visiting a client, the client’s dress code and expectations

Principle 3

Impressions do matter; subliminally, as well as in direct relationship to the respect, consideration, and treatment you receive from others.
