Most jobs require you to look nice while you’re there. Not only has it been shown that looking good makes you feel better, but how you look also says something about the company as a whole. Even if you work at a desk most of the day, a client will judge the company based on how it looks overall, which includes how the employees look. Keeping up a good appearance can also help you move up the ladder faster.
So, if you want to make a good impression at work, use these tips and tricks to always look nice.
The Shoes Come First
Shoes are probably the most important part of any outfit. They can either hold everything together or let it all fall apart. Choose high-quality, classic shoes that go with almost anything to get the first part right. Don’t worry, you don’t need many pairs. If you take care of one or two great pairs of shoes, they can last you your whole career. Having nice shoes at work is part of looking professional.
Build A Wardrobe That Is Simple But Beautiful
You don’t need a closet full of clothes to look great every day at work. In fact, having simple and essential pieces can make it even easier to get ready in the morning. Some blazers, shirts, work skirts, and pants can be worn together to make more than one outfit.
Get Rid Of Nasties
Even if your shirt is really nice, if it has a lot of creases, it will ruin your whole look. Because of this, it’s important to make sure your clothes are smooth and crisp by ironing them before you wear them (if necessary). If you don’t have time one day, you can hang your clothes up in the bathroom while you shower. Pet hair and other bits of fluff can ruin an otherwise professional and attractive outfit. Use a lint roller in the morning and even carry one with you if you have a meeting that day.
Plan Outfits Ahead Of Time
Plan your outfits for the week on Sunday night so you don’t have to worry about how you look in the morning. So, you’ll know you have five great outfits and won’t have to think about them.
Improve Your Posture
Your posture has a huge effect on how you look as a whole, so you shouldn’t just worry about what you wear. Even though you don’t have to sit with your shoulders back all the time, it’s a good idea to do exercises to improve your posture and straighten your back every now and then. It really matters!
Take Care Of Yourself
Good hygiene is just as important as a great outfit, if not more so. Keep yourself very clean so you don’t give off a bad impression with bad breath, dirty fingernails, or greasy hair. Even if you are in a hurry that morning and can’t take a shower, a quick wash in the sink is better than nothing! When you look good, you feel good, and if you always look professional, it will help you do well in your career.
