Your clothes are always talking, even when you are silent.
What do you want them to say?
In a world where decisions are made in milliseconds, how can you gain
through what you wear?
Style for Business
What you wear helps you to get ahead, be successful, have your message heard, be confident, portray status, be more influential. We all wear clothes and these can give you as an individual and as an organisation a competitive advantage. There is no such thing as not making a statement!
The world of work is changing and the traditional 9-5 office workplace is becoming less prevalent. Homeworking, business casual, digital economies, portfolio careers. These developments have brought changes in attitude to dressing for work. And that causes difficulty. There is casualisation of dress codes in workplaces but both individuals and organisations still need to maintain a professional and respected reputation. Nobody knows what they're supposed to be wearing to work these days!
It is widely accepted that what you wear can affect how you feel and how you behave. It can also affect how others behave towards you. It communicates competence, power, intelligence, sociability and mood if you get it right. The opposite if you get it wrong! Different colours can also have an impact on how you feel and how others perceive us – red can be seen as both positively powerful and negatively aggressive. It's more complex than you think!!
