Have you ever heard the phrase “dress for success” and wondered exactly what that meant? I received a message the other day from a follower of mine who just landed a new corporate job and is so excited but they weren’t sure what to wear. Luckily she asked the pro! When you think of dressing for success, just think of presenting a visual image that exudes confidence and professionalism.
This strategy works whether you’re heading to the office, job interview or an afternoon meeting, it’s always important to dress the part. Depending on your job of course, if you’re trying to close a deal or impress a new client, you are more likely to do just that if your outfit is on point. That may sound shallow, but it’s true. Imagine you show up for a meeting wearing dirty jeans, flip flops and an old wrinkly top…you more than likely won’t be taken seriously, especially if everyone else made an effort to look put together. So make sure you dress to impress!
Speaking of Dress to Impress, I just saw a preview for a movie called What Men Want with Taraji P. Henson and it looks so good! It’s about a woman (Taraji) who works in a corporate setting and is up for a promotion but gets passed up by a male colleague. After a blow to the head she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts and ends up with a major edge over the agency of men! (You can see the trailer below!) Needless to say, I’m super stoked to see this. LOL I also thought it would be fun to hold a prescreening next week before it’s released to the public. I’m hosting a giveaway on my IG right now so make sure and check it out!
