We’ve heard this so many times and yet, it is not something we think about on a day to day basis. However, presenting yourself successfully for the job you have is so much more than the clothes you wear. I believe it is also a mind-set in how you feel about yourself and your competencies. No matter what your skills or experience is, don’t let your personal image ruin your chances to make the best possible impression no matter what the occasion.
It is said that we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time! That means that we have an awful lot of clothes in our wardrobes which rarely see the light of day. My experience in working with clients in wardrobe weeding sessions that this is true and it also applies to accessories! In particular, I find that women often have lots of handbags and belts that they rarely if ever use. Perhaps they bought on impulse, were given a gift of a ‘good’ bag or simply the bag is the wrong shape, wrong colour, too big/small etc!
