Do you know that how you tailor your clothes and the shape of your clothing affects how people perceive you.
This is where style speaks for both men and women, which can completely change an outfit.
From shoes, to watches, to scarves, to hats, etc are easy ways to change the impression of one’s style.
Are you also aware that when fit and color becomes a problem, brands do it for you in terms of style?
Brands can emulate or showcase one’s ideal style and rely on their styles to make decisions in the type of dressing:
• Formal Dressing:
When men and women dress with the effect of clothing on judgements made in a working environment, it’s formal dressing. Many men believe that wearing the correct work attire increased the likelihood of them communicating intelligence, competence, knowledgeability, honesty and reliability.
Dark colors are more formal–especially black and grey.
Clanky bracelets, wrap scarves or lots of accessories actually decrease your formality. If you want to be seen as more formal, simple accessories and clean lines are better.
• Casual dressing:
Casual fashion speaks of Bright colors, pastels and loose clothes.
They mark an air Layers and loose fitting clothing tend to come across as more laid-back and easy-going.
People are advised to wear one bold piece. Perhaps a vibrant beaded necklace or an oversize men’s-style watch.
There is a popular belief that Men should keep jewelry to a minimum. A classy watch and/or wedding band is sufficient. No thumb rings, earrings or weird piercings because for men, anything goes.
• Edgy dressing:
If self-expression and creativity is what you’re after, there’s no better medium to communicate that than with fashion. Experts say, “the more meaning your clothes and accessories have, the more they communicate who you are and what you want to convey to the world, and the possibilities are endless.”
One does need to get into a color rut as we all have our go-to colors when we’re stuck for what to wear or pressed for time. Instead of wearing a lot of black, try navy instead.
Instead of wearing brown shoes, try blue dress shoes to change it up. Instead of wearing jeans, don’t stick to the usual blue, try black or khaki green.
• Professional dressing:
You don’t need to spend tons of money on clothes, but you do need to make sure your clothes fit right. That holds true for both women and men. Doubly so if you want to come across as professional.
Experts say, “an interviewer will determine within 10 seconds of meeting a job candidate whether they’re right for the job.”
Therefore, a well-tailored outfit implies that someone is conscientious and pay close attention to detail.
Professional dressing means not too tight, not too loose, not too long and definitely not too short.
Suits for both men and women are always seen as more professional.
In professional dressing there are three areas of the body women want to focus on: Legs, Arms, Bustline.
