Dress for Success

Consider this: 55% of another person's perception of you is based on how you look. Every day, people are constantly developing conclusions based off the way each of us dresses. As explained in Business Insider's "Here's How Your Clothing Affects Your Success", the impact of your attire is vast: "Research shows that your appearance strongly influences other people's perception of your financial success, authority, trustworthiness, intelligence and suitability for hire or promotion." There is validity to the saying of "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have." However, it can be challenging to dress to your potential when you aren't clear on what your style might be, you don't have your clothing choices organized in your closet or you are not comfortable pulling the components together.

Amidst all the challenges to dress for success, there are plenty of resources to help. A quick online search for "make sure you dress for your success" is a solid way to get started; however, utilizing all available resources would involve reaching out to experts that can help.

North Carolina has several folks with whom I've enjoyed working and received quality feedback:

- Geralin Thomas of Metropolitan Organizing shares her wardrobe wisdom via one-on-one consulting, during public workshops, with social media, on her Managing Modern Life blog and through complimentary printables from her website.

- Mary Michele Ndiffer of StyleFinder Boutique writes and speaks as a Master Style Coach all over the world, empowering women to discover their own specific style of beautiful through her trademarked StyleFinder ID assessment tool.

- Kate Leser of The Makeover Expert guides you to find the one thing about your look that you can change to have a profound impact on life, both personally and professionally, bringing out your authentic self, working both virtually and in person with clients.

How does your wardrobe measure up in conveying your authentic self? Does what you wear accurately transport your positive attributes? Do you get dressed easily each morning? If not, which of the aforementioned ladies will you contact for assistance moving forward?
