How to Dress to Impress

octobre 08, 2014

It may be a cliché but first impressions are crucial in everything - especially in business. Whether you are walking into a meeting, a job interview or entertaining clients, the first thing everyone sees, before you even open your mouth, is the way you are dressed. Of course it’s what you say that matters but, particularly in the business world, people make snap judgements on how you look. And even more frighteningly, according to a series of experiments by Princeton psychologists it takes a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger.

So, How do you Dress to Impress?

Well of course we would say; 'that’s easy choose from one of our beautiful power dresses'. But in the spirit of sharing our experiences to help womankind here are our top tips.

 

1. Do you feel confident in your outfit? 

It's an obvious one, but the most important in our view. If you feel confident in what you are wearing you will project that and others will pick up on it. It’s no good wearing a beautifully tailored dress with a pair of old scruffy heels that have seen better days and a jacket with a button missing. Make sure that all elements of your outfit make a whole and that you are not just happy to be seen in it, but want to be seen wearing it.

 

2. Is it comfortable? 
You might look the bees knees but if you are constantly fiddling with a seam or readjusting your cleavage then you need to think again. You shouldn’t have to worry about your outfit once you have put it on. It should fit you properly leaving you free to get on with your day without tiresome straightening or correcting. Again refer to point 1.

 

3. Is it right for the occasion?
Are you wearing a ball gown to a client lunch? Highly unlikely but knowing who you are meeting should be a consideration when you are getting dressed in the morning. If your client is conservative then you might want to tone down your colour palate or vice versa if your client is a big personality. And being dressed appropriately should take us back to point 1.
