Your Wardrobe Needs Management Too, Part 2
Our whole life we have been getting dressed every day, and most people take getting dressed for granted. I hope after reading this article that you never will again. The savvy professional gives attention to her wardrobe, manages and maintains it, and thereby enjoys all the benefits of being prepared to look great and feel appropriately dressed.
Color is a powerful business tool that you do not want to overlook as you build your executive image. Your core colors are colors that can be identified by an image consultant. They are the colors that make you look healthier, thinner, younger, and more vibrant when you wear them. Core neutral colors for your business wardrobe include black, grey, navy or brown. You will find that when you wear the colors that are best for you, you will get more attention, be taken more seriously and perhaps best of all, you will feel more confident.
Protect Your Investment
Your executive wardrobe will cost you more than your casual outfits, and you want your garments to last a long time. Take steps to protect your wardrobe. One common mistake is dry-cleaning too often. Unless you have a spot that needs attention, your garments rarely need to be dry-cleaned. If you were in a smoke-filled room last night, steam your clothes by hanging them outside your shower, then air dry them outside for an afternoon. Also make sure your closet is not overstuffed, and has good air flow to keep your clothing fresh and prevent the garment shapes from being lost.Â
After you wear something, take a good look at it in the morning light. Does it need repairs or are there spots on it? Always give garments immediate care before placing them in the closet. You never want to be getting dressed for the day, and find that your chosen outfit is not ready to wear.Â
Managing your wardrobe will initially take some attention. Apply these ideas to maximize the investment you make in your pieces, insuring that they last a long time. The result will be that you will always have the right outfit ready to go, you will feel confident in your appearance, and that will allow you to get the best possible results on the job.
