How a Career-Oriented Woman Should be Dressed
There is a formulary concerning clothing etiquette called dress code. It influences the image of an organization, that's why it is a guide to action for employees. Big companies even have employee regulations with written dress code rules.
All the recent investigations in business etiquette sphere show that the tendency to toughen a dress code increases. The more an organization takes care about its image, the stricter dress code rules are.
Of course not all organizations treat their employees' appearance so severe. There are firms where employees can come in a T-shirt or jeans but dress up only when they have an important meeting or negotiations.
Clothes for an Interview
When you are going to meet your employer for the first time, dress in a very conservative way. In this case your employer will have the opportunity to see the seriousness of your intentions and appreciate you as a person that is worth trusting. It's better not to use foxy scent and limit yourself in accessories. But this rule doesn't apply to watches. Choose a classically styled watch. In case you prefer not to waste your money for a crazily expensive watch, you can buy replica watches. Replica watches will be a great substitution for genuine brand watches.
Recruiters always make some notes concerning your appearance in your CV after the interview, and in the most serious companies there is even a special evaluation list with a point concerning appearance of a job seeker.
First Days at Work
An employee that follows all the organization dress code rules is perceived by colleagues and chiefs as a more professional one, but of course in case he/she showed corresponding business qualities. It's no wonder that such people get a promotion quicker.
But a woman that puts on a slinky blouse and uses a lot of cosmetics can be perceived by colleagues as an employee who wants to make a career not just with the help of one's business skills. But if she is dressed in a business suit, colleagues take her as a business partner, trust her, criticize her less, and are sure that she possesses such qualities as self-confidence, good organization and seriousness. Catch sight of your colleagues' watches; buy an original watch or qualitative replica watch but don't forget that it has to be in classical style.
Being at a new job for the first several days, observe how your colleagues and especially bosses are dressed. If you manage to "blend" with them, your chances to pass trial period will increase.
Your work clothing has to raise your clients trust, express your working activity and professionalism, but not your purse potential. Refinement and luxury can play a low-down trick on you because your clients may think that you take more care of your clothes than of your job.
A Real Businesswoman Style
Classic dress-code rules suggest that every woman's obligation is to have a suit with blouses or T-shirts and jumpers of fine fabrics in her wardrobe. A white blouse is a sure-fire and universal variant. It's better to wear two or three suits and to diversify them with the help of jumpers, polo-necks, and accessories (but not numerous) and watches (you can substitute an expensive brand watch by a replica watch of an original design and good quality).
It's always possible to define a person's status and even character by paying attention at his/her shoes. Shoes have to be fashionable, with blameless heels, well polished and have to be a good match with a skirt or pants.
Remember to put on panty hose in spite of heat degree. Last touch: small bag or a leather brief case together with temperate make-up will make your business style blameless.
Several important rules:
Don't wear bright artificial nails
Knee-highs and socks can be wearable only with pants
Don't wear close-fitting clothes
Your make- up should be fresh
Don't wear jeans clothing going to work
Don't wear very high-heeled shoes
Wear only original watches of the world known brand or substitute them by replica watches.
Having realized all the importance of your appearance, don't forget: a real career-oriented woman is a woman who manages not only to take care of her attires and appearance but a woman who perfectly perform her professional duties.
