Dress to Impress: Business Fashion Tips

1. Dress Comfortably

Dress comfortably, but don’t dress like a slob if you want to dress to impress. First of all, follow the protocol in your office. If jeans are allowed, then wear nice jeans (darker are better) – ones without holes or frays. Dress as though you were going to meet the CEO of the company or customers for the day. That way, you will look like you care about your appearance, which will impress others. Also, dark clothing is reported to make you look more professional.

2. Shine Those Shoes!!!

One of the best pieces of advice for both men and women trying to impress a client, boss or in an interview is attention to detail. Nothing says detail like your shoes, in particular if they are shined or not.
Shoes that are scuffed or worn say that you are not paying attention to detail, so my simple advice is to make sure that your shoes are shined and looking their best.
The first step to being sharp is looking sharp and that starts with your shoes!

3. Black or Blue: It Suits You

When it comes to dressing for SUCCESS, the easiest and most widely accepted attire is a blue or black suit. This would be applicable for men or women. Now that said, dressing up the suit with some color is a good idea as well. A colored shirt or blouse and complementary tie or jewelry can make the look complete. Invest in a tailored suit in each color and you will make it very easy to decide for yourself what to wear every day.

4. Always Dress Up and Not Down

When in doubt, wear a suit and tie. If you are sure that business casual will be OK, wear a starched dress shirt, dark trousers, an appropriately matched cashmere sweater, and polished shoes. Jeans and a T-shirt never impress. Stay away from these in all business situations.

5. You Look Good to You. So?

Professional is in the eyes of the beholder. Be sure that you dress in a way that looks professional according to the situation, customer/prospect, place, conditions, etc. Making a fashion statement is not as important as making a sale. Being comfortable is not as valuable as making your customer comfortable. Standing out is not as critical as being invited in. As in all things — the customer is always right.
