Has your personal fashion style been a bit down-trodden lately? Have you been prone to throw on your old college sweats at the end of a work day? With the constant barrage of fashion and style advice from nearly every major media outlet, it’s tempting to ignore the noise and don the staples you’ve been wearing for years. Ramp up your professional style with these awesome tips from famous stylists and you might ramp up your career in the process.
The most important thing you can wear every day to the office is a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Dressing for success simply translates into dressing for both self-respect and respect for the position you hold. If you want to be taken seriously, you have to dress seriously. If you haven’t changed your hairstyle since college, make an appointment with a stylist and explore new hair styles that work best with your hair type, accent your best features and work with your lifestyle. Take it one step further and visit a cosmetologist at a make-up counter and experiment with new applications and products to highlight your best features.
Head to your closet and get ruthless. Prepare to discard, donate or consign those items you’ve not worn in over a year. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and select from the great fashions available from Buckle. A well-tailored jacket in a muted colored coupled with classic, well-fitting trousers can be the new anchors of your wardrobe. It’s not necessary to spend a fortune to develop a professional wardrobe. Leave the bling and wacky hair styles at home and opt for ramping up your basic pieces with stylish accessories such as scarves and tasteful jewelry.
Follow these basic guidelines, keep your pieces well-maintained and watch your posture. You’ll soon be wearing a new self-confidence that will allow the new and improved, and quite possibly more successful you, emerge!
