Can You Dress for Success?

Can You Dress for Success?
2010/10/08 Maya H.

The way you dress tells people who you are the minute you walk into a room -- the average person assesses you within 20 seconds of meeting you.  So what does your work wardrobe say about you: professional and stylish or too casual and clueless? 

The way you dress conveys respect to those with whom you interact, and it helps you feel confident.  Rule of thumb:  dress for the job you want, not the job you have!  Take cues from others in higher positions (higher-ups).  In addition, there are ways to "dress down" and still maintain an office-chic appearance: avoid  jeans and open-toe shoes.  When in doubt, remember it's better "to be overdressed than underdressed."  You want your customers and coworkers to be focusing on you, not what you're wearing.
