Officewear : What To Wear to Work

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it”

When I first read this quote years and years ago, I dismissed it as being vain, dreamy and ignorant, something a rich spoilt fashionista came up with to justify her excessive means. I was far too practical and intelligent (or so I thought) to fall prey to such an ignorant charade.

Over the years however, age and experience have proved beyond a shred of doubt the Edith Head was no bimbo, she was indeed a very smart, successful, intelligent and might I add witty lady. Her work is still remembered as some of the best work done in the industry. Her words reek of wisdom and no matter how much  one tries to ignore them or hide from them, at some point we are bound to realise that how we dress impacts our life in very surprising ways.

In the work arena especially dressing the part and dressing sharp can pay massive dividends. Lets face it, we are a judgemental society and we often form our judgement within the first few seconds of seeing a person walk through the door, even without having spoken to them!! Based on what? How they are dressed, do they look confident? comfortable? nervous? eager? Yes how one dresses can say all this and much more…

So basically I am trying to get at the fact that dressing for work needs to become just a little more than a chore for us, a little thought needs to go into what we would like our clothes to say about us and the little effort needs to be put into looking sharp and keeping things interesting as far as the work wardrobe goes.

Todays video tries to do just that, there is something for even the most conservative work environment and something for a fun bright work atmosphere too..
