Networking in Style
by Robin Walker, Style Coach and Clothier
1) Nix the boring every day stuff and stand out!
Out with business casual and in with a quality and polished look. Dress up so that you look successful at what you do. People are naturally attracted to others who “look” successful so why not start off with the look? Here’s a little success tip that your colleagues won’t tell you: some of the most successful people I work with dressed the part before they had it.
Guys, a white shirt is a white shirt and a white shirt is boring. Ladies, wearing all black is boring too. Put some color where it counts - near your face! Color has an emotional value that can set you apart. Wear your best colors so that it creates a "feel good" vibe around you and atracts others to you.
I’m not just talking about the simple stuff like polished shoes, that’s child’s play. Let’s polish your pearly whites, get a good facial scrub and delve into everything else that has to do with personal grooming. I say go all out and get your teeth cleaned, groom your eyebrows, wax something and whack all unnecessary bush!
And the only way to really do that is to know that you look good. Get rid of any and all questionable garments. I've see it too many times, clients wearing something completely jacked up just because they own it. You may not always know what looks good, but you pretty much know if something looks bad. Just get rid of it. Move on. Liberate yourself.
Good posture and a smile convey confidence and charisma so stand up (no leaning) and smile.
