Dressing as a professional is not always easy, especially for those who are trying to break into the world of office jobs or those who work in an industry that requires dress codes. With so many options out there, it can be hard to know what look suits you best and if dressing like this will help your career (or even make you more productive!). This blog post aims at giving readers some tips on how to dress like a professional from someone who has been there!
#1 Always go for a button-down shirt
The first thing you need to remember is that it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. You can never go wrong with a button-down shirt over your stage 2 faja if you just want to dress up on casual days at work! It shows that you have put effort into making yourself look good and are serious about being career-oriented. Plus, as long as everything fits well, no matter what kind of pattern/print there is on your shirt, it will always look professional because it’s a classic staple item!
Just make sure not to wear any shirts with logos or offensive prints – otherwise, you will definitely be underdressed! And always remember that if your shirt is a bit wrinkly, try to iron it before going into the meeting/interview. It might take some time, but it will make all the difference when you enter, and they can’t help but notice how crisp and sharp your outfit looks!
#2 Keep your hair out of your face
Dressing as a professional means that you need to look the part. One detail of this is your hair; it should be well kept and out of your face so they can’t see those unruly strands!
Choose some kind of hair product (gel or spray) and apply it evenly through your hair once you’ve dried/combed them thoroughly.
If there are shorter layers on top but longer ones at the back: try blow-drying only the front parts down first before blowing dry everywhere else. Having your hair combed backward might be a good idea if you’re trying to get your hair off of your face.
#3 Stick to neutral colors
There’s nothing more boring than an outfit that is all one color. You want to wear something that stands out but doesn’t clash with your skin tone or hair color! The safest options are always neutral colors like black, brown, and green – but you can also play around with navy blue (for pants) and white/cream if you’re feeling adventurous. If the interviewer compliments your tie, it means they approve of what you’ve put together so far – so don’t be afraid to try new things every now and then! Just keep them classy enough for any meeting/interview.
#4 Wear comfortable yet presentable shoes
One of the biggest mistakes people make is wearing shoes that are uncomfortable to stand in. It’s not a good look – standing up all day because your feet hurt will be extremely noticeable!
So if you’re going for dress shoes, try them out first and wear thicker socks (not too thick, though) so it doesn’t feel like there’s no room at all inside. Make sure they are polished well enough as well, or else you run the risk of looking unprofessional. If possible, don’t wear new shoes on important days/days where everyone can see what kind of shoe choices you’ve made – just remember that comfort comes before fashion, after all!
