Unless you have a job that requires you to wear a uniform, dressing for work can turn into a game of:
“Whatever should I wear to work today”
One way of eliminating this stressful process is labeling wooden hangers with the days of the week (or the days you have to work).
Coordinate what you plan on wearing each day, including accessories and place them on the respective hangers. Also place the shoes you plan on wearing with each outfit side by side.
Each day after you shower and makeup your ready to wear hangers will make dressing for work fun. You will have more time to enjoy breakfast and you will get to work on time feeling relaxed and confident.
This is a versatile work ensemble, by taking the jacket off and replacing it with a beautiful top can take you from the office to a night out.
It’s always best to dress for the position you are striving for rather than the position you were hired for.
Be well groomed at all times
Being professional is not only reflected in your style but also in your attitude, the way you behave and how you adapt to unexpected situations.
Showing up frumpy or overdressed for work is unacceptable and is putting yourself at a disadvantage, you will not be taken seriously and promotion will always elude you.
How casual is casual? this depends on the organization you work for, their dress code and your position within the company.
“Casual Fridays” should not be interpreted to mean “sloppy”. Casual means you wear informal clothing while maintaining your professionalism.
Overstressed torn jeans, flip flops, dirty running shoes, sloppy jogging pants, over stretched t-shirts and sweaters are unacceptable.
The way you dress on ‘Casual Fridays’ will speak volumes about your readiness for promotion to your employer.
