How you dress in the workplace might affect your clients and others within the company. People tend to form judgments of another person based on first impressions – usually one’s physical appearance.

Here are some tips to help you “dress for success:”

  • Size Matters:
    • Tailor your suits.
    • Avoid clothing too baggy or too tight.
  • Less is Best:
    • Simple jewelry
    • Basic clothing designs/colors
    • No logos/insignias
  • Clean is Keen:
    • Don’t be that
    • Maintain proper hygiene.
    • Clean your clothes.
  • Bye Bye Shaggy:
    • Shave regularly.
    • Schedule haircuts every four to five weeks.
    • Wear deodorant.
    • Apply colognes and perfumes conservatively.
    • Clip and clean fingernails.
