Way To Work It!

I am a firm believer that in both women's and men's fashion you must dress for success. I know it is cliche, but it is true.

We are all too often labeled by first impressions on our appearance. There are true benefits for taking pride and paying attention to detail with your wardrobe.

One of those benefits is that you have the ability to improve your professionalism, both inside and outside of work. Dressing for success is often associated with professional clothes.  If public perception and professionalism is important to you (or your job), you will want to take proper steps to ensure that you are dressing for success.

If you are a follower of this blog for any amount of time, you know that self esteem to me is above all important. Believe it or not, dressing for success is not all about the label on your back, it is much about
 self-confidence and self-esteem. These are both critical to your health and well being. It is a known fact that those who look good often feel good about themselves. This extra confidence is important when looking to dress for success, especially in instances where you may not only be attending a job interview or an important business meeting but also for an evening out with  your significant other or friends. It is amazing how this increased self-confidence can help you make a good impression!

It is important to remember that you don’t really need to have a reason to always be cognisant of your appearance. Even if you have no one to impress, you can still benefit, in terms of self-confidence and self-esteem, from poising yourself for success, by dressing for it.

Dressing for success illustrates to others that you care about your perceived demeanor (and you should), that you care about your job and being professional at it (and you should), and that you have the drive, determination and the right attitude for moving forward with confidence no matter what the circumstances.


  1. It's so true! I've really been slacking in the clothing/appearance department for a while now, for a few reasons. I had an Easter party to go this weekend and I was determined to look better than OK - look GOOD. I went to the mall (just finding an outfit I wasn't embarassed to shop in was a challenge) and got a few things. That was Friday. It's now Tuesday and I've already seen the difference with how people interact with me because I'm not slumping around embarassed to be in a dingy sweatshirt and old sneakers. I haven't felt pretty in a long time...it's nice.

    1. Your comment ABSOLUTELY MADE MY DAY! I am so glad you felt good about yourself today!!!

  2. It's true but I try not to remember it ;o)

    I have been thinking more about it what with my interviews possibly coming up at work and for design... you might have to help me pick an outfit.

    1. LOL, you try not to remember it. I'd L-O-V-E to help you pick out an outfit!!! With you were here so we could go shopping together :)
