Have you ever hard the saying “dress for success”? It is actually something you can do. The way you dress can say a lot about you as a person. Your outfit choices can show whether you are a confident person. Whether you are more inclined to drift into the crowd, or if you prefer to be the main event. It can also show if you are a positive and happy person, or if you are struggling on the inside. To dress for success is to dress in a way that shows your positive and confident side. It will help show that you are ready to take on the world and be as successful as you can be. But how can it be achieved?
The colour of your clothes
The colour that you choose to wear can say a lot about your personality and confidence. Choose your colours based on where you are going and the vibe that you want to give off. Not sure what different colours might say about you?
- Dark colours (black, gray, navy): These colours give off a professional and powerful vibe. They show strength and courage.
- Whites: These show cleanliness, sophistication and formality.
- Pastels: These give off a feminine and soft vibe.
- Brights: Bright colours will show confidence and your acceptance of being seen and that you are proud of that.
The fit of the clothes
Ill fitting clothes can give those around you the sense that you are not disorganised, unprepared or uninterested in how you look. Having outfits that are well fitted will show your wanting to dress yourself in a professional and successful way.
Well fitted clothes does not necessarily mean going to a tailor and getting ‘fitted’ clothes. It can be flowy dresses or skirts still. But just ones that fit your body type well and show off your feature in all the right places.
Dress to your body type
When you choose your outfits, go with ones that suit your body type. Something that looks great on a manikin, may not look the same on you. Every one is different and so are their bodies. This is why it is important to understand your body type and dress to it.
By choosing clothing that shows off your features it shows that you have self-respect, self-love and confidence.
When you choose outfits that are fitted and suited to your body type, those around you can see the self-respect and confidence that you have. It show you are professional and want to achieve more.
I am not saying walk into work in your favourite pair of tracksuit pants. But being comfortable is an important factor when it comes to dressing for success. If you are comfortable in the outfit you are wearing, you are more likely to feel confident and project positive vibes.
If you are not comfortable there is the risk that you will give off negative vibes and spend the whole time worrying about your outfit and how you feel.
There are plenty of ways that you can wear clothes that both make you look professional and successful, along with also being comfortable.
Know what to wear, and when
Another important thing to remember when dressing for success, is knowing when to wear which outfit.
Depending on the situation you are in, there may be outfits that are not suited or appropriate. Knowing the circumstances for where you are going and what you are doing, will help you to determine the best outfit to wear. By wearing the best suited outfit for the occasion, you will give off successful and confidence vibes to those around you.
Dressing for success does not need to be difficult. The most important thing is to find something that makes you feel happy and comfortable. There is no point choosing clothes you do not like or feel right in, because people will be able to tell.
Dress for success on your own terms. Find something that you feel confident, sexy and happy in. Once you find it, rock it!
Be the successful woman that you have been hiding away. Let her loose to do her thing!
