Many people, especially the newbies in business, try to master their own image and find the suitable style. Typically they look around and get inspiration from the others or don’t think about it at all. However, the way you look might open (or close) many doors.
The world of business has at least a few styles, a few different dress-codes. However, following several simple rules allows keeping stylish in every situation. Looking good can be more beneficial than many people think. When you are well dressed you boost your charisma, people are more attracted to you, so networking becomes far easier. As Mark Twain said: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
What does it mean to be stylish?
Being stylish is a matter of simple rules. Every person with some experience in business understands what I mean. It doesn’t mean that you must dress up like on gala all the time, but your clothes cannot look cheap. Keep in mind that as a person who has or wants to have.
According to Karl Lagerfeld, the famous fashion designer: “Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.”
So yes, you don’t have to change your entire clothing style. Imagine that your clothes are the reflection of your business success. You cannot look cheap if you want to be considered as a hot contact in the market.
Why some clothing choices make serious people laugh?
Drake is a successful businessman and artist, who appeared on the top of the list by magazine GQ. They presented 50 the best-dressed men in the business.
However, as long as you are not an artist, this is not the most recommended style you can choose. If you follow fashion blindly, you might look ridiculous among the business sharks.
Each one serious person settled in business or diplomacy would say that if you struggle witch expanding your contact, maybe you should take a deeper look at your style. Following the clothing picked by celebrities is usually a bad idea. Imagine yourself on a meeting with a queen or president. What clothes would you choose? If you don’t feel ready for such a meeting in your current official outfit, there are at least two ways of improving your look. First of all, elegance is always a good idea. Secondly, if you want to try something new, hire a specialist who will help you create your unique image. Be bold, look luxurious and make your business shine.
What if your partner looks like a hip-hop star?
There is one more tricky part of this topic. Sometimes although we truly appreciate the wisdom of our partner, his outfit makes us feel uncomfortable. Is it possible that such a thing like clothes can ruin our contract? We all know that everything matters. Remember that your business should be the priority, so all you can do is asking your partner to improve the image. However, let’s not freak out about it. Everything has pros and cons, but this what really matters is the way you follow your vision of life. Being real always counts.
