Always dress like you might decide to drop by a restaurant or nightclub with a dress code. Because you might. And even if you don’t, you might as well look like a guy who’s got plans. Studies have shown that people who dress to impress are more successful than people who dress more casual. Not only will you be more successful, but dressing up also leads to more productivity and a stronger sense of power. If you are wanting to nail an interview, or have a meeting that is dependent on you being in control, dress up for it. Wear a nice suit and walk like you own the place, and you will impress everyone around you. For men, a custom made full suit, sport coat, or even a tie can put you in a more professional mind-set. If wearing a suit will come off too strong, focus on fit (sleek and close but not tight) and quality or even wearing a high-quality dress shoe or nice watch can do the trick as well. For women, wearing a nice pant suit or skirt suit shows your professionalism and is a symbol of power. Women are becoming more prominent in the business workforce, so dressing to show you mean business by wearing a custom fitted suit (whether it be a pant suit or a skirt suit) can make all the difference when trying to make negotiations in the boardroom.
