First impressions count
When you meet a new colleague who can’t knot his tie correctly and wears his shirt untucked, you think, ‘This guy’s sloppy. I bet his work is like that too’ rather than, ‘This guy’s clearly a hard worker.’ Making a good impression at all times is hard work, but it will pay off. You never know who you might meet during the course of the day. If you’ve recently been looking for Mr Right, it’s time to step up your attraction quotient.
Here are some tips to ensure that you look good every single day.
Think about your work wardrobe
You spend over 40 hours a week in the workplace. That’s a significant part of your life, and one not to be forgotten when trying to impress. Although your working life may be dull, you never know who you might meet. Give your work wardrobe a thorough examination. Is your knitwear starting to pill? Are your trousers looking a little worn? Are your clothes predominantly black, gray and white? Treating yourself to a quality work wardrobe won’t be wasted. Buy trousers and skirts that fit your proportions. Team basic items with colourful, and interesting accessories such as bright, fashion necklaces and bracelets. Your sophisticated look will not only set you apart from the rest, but it will also make you feel more confident.
