Saw this interesting article online "Dress for success" which I find it meaningful especially for the fresh grads who are dealing with the transition period from school life to the working society. Having been there and done that, I find it a struggle to change my wardrobe of shorts & tanks to something professional yet comfortable to last me through the 8 hours (or more) in office.
The most convenient kind of work wear for me is definitely a piece of gorgeous dress! Think, waking up in the morning when you actually hunger for more sleep than spending time in your wardrobe searching for a matching blouse with high-waist skirts/pants. My vote is of course one piece of dress that save the hassle and in turn sleep in for another 15 minutes or so, what say you? Your vote? :)Read on..."Whether you've landed your first office job or you’re just at a point in your career where you want to rethink the impressions you make on coworkers, dressing for success is not a cliche. It’s a necessity.
DRESS FOR THE JOB YOU WANT, NOT THE JOB YOU HAVE
It's an old piece of advice but it's still around because it works. If you have an entry-level position and hope to climb the company ladder, don't dress like an entry-level employee. Stand out and show your goals: dress like your boss's boss dresses.
INVEST IN YOUR WARDROBE
Don't be afraid to splurge. These are investments in your long-term career goals. Your employers see you as a reflection of the company, and of themselves. You want to be perceived professionally. Don't be afraid to purchase good pieces that you will wear over and over for a long time.
For the ladies things aren't always as cut and dry. Your best tip for starting out is to take a good look at the women in your office. I mean, the highest executives. Women can be much more competitive about dressing then men in the office. You’re goal is to dress to impress and fit in, not to shock or out-do."
