No matter how unconventional we think ourselves to be, no matter how much attitude we flaunt, there are times when we are better off stepping with the times.
Fashion or rather clothing, plays an important part too. Inappropriate attire can make you stick out like a sore thumb. And that hinders the acceptability level and hence your success too.
Let`s imagine a situation. You`re invited for an official dinner party. All the girls have turned up in their chiffons and silks. The guys are all well turned out. While you, on the other hand, have arrived in a well worn T-shirt and your favourite pair of jeans.
You`ve always insisted that you don`t care for fashion. But at that party, you are feeling a bit uncomfortable. Especially when you see the big bosses eyeing you unfavourably. They view you as someone who doesn`t think the office party is worth taking trouble about.
Inappropriate attire can strip you of your confidence. You climb to success will be that much more harder if you carry a negative attitude too. A good dress sense not only instills self-confidence, but it also earns you the respect of others.
Success comes a lot more easily if people think you fit into the system. If you`re constantly fighting the system, they`re not likely to take you seriously in your quest for success.
Be it a wedding, a court case, a job interview or a mere family dinner learn to dress for the occasion.
It`s silly to think dress codes don`t apply any more. Would you wear a Kancheepuram silk in bed? Would you go to a wedding in shorts and a T-shirt?
Get noticed for your dress sense. Don`t get notorious for it.
If you don`t abide by the dress code, you come across as poorly educated in social arts. And that isn`t flattering.
Your clothes should help your talents shine. Appropriate clothing always does. Unconventional clothing can undermine you confidence.
Once you`ve settled the clothing issue, you can focus on the more important tasks like doing your job well.
Casual clothes are more comfortable. Reserve them for your regular crowd and favourite hangouts.
