Dressing to impress is dependent on several factors, and the first is the occasion. Consider what you would wear to an important interview, for example, compared to what you would wear out with friends. If you’re attending an event that has a dress code – professional, business casual, formal – adhere to it.
Secondly, it’s important to know what flatters you. Understanding your skin tone and your body shape will ensure you select clothing that is the proper size, fit and color for you.
It’s also important to coordinate and accessorize when dressing to impress. Select items that are complementary to one another, in style and color, and add character through your accessories – jewelry, glasses, belts, handbags.
Hygiene is a large component of dressing to impress. Clothes should always be clean, fresh and well kept. Your dry cleaners can help by starching and pressing your clothing for you, ensuring you have a tailored and well-tended appearance.
In addition to this, it’s important for you to have your own, individual sense of style. Be yourself and let your attire be a reflection of your tastes and aesthetic preferences. Don’t fear being unique and one of a kind in your sense of style.
