Dressing well is good manners, a smart person once said. A lot of us are ill-mannered then, considering very few of us pay mind to what we wear. In fact, women who make an effort in their dressing have been labelled ‘slay queens’ and the men have been labelled ‘metro’, for simply having good manners. However, there are more than enough reasons why how you look should matter, especially to you. Your dressing can change a lot of things in your life. These are the things that happen when you start dressing well.
Your confidence spikes
When you are well-dressed, you know it. You look forward to the day. It boosts your confidence knowing that you look good. If someone stares , you know it is because they admire your outfit. You walk into rooms with your head held high. It is much different when you threw on whatever you could get your hands on in the morning. When someone stares you will be ill-at ease, and the urge to sneak into rooms via the backdoor will forever be present.
You are more likely to ace that interview
Another smart person said that you should dress for the job you want. Even if the interview does not go as well as you planned (things happen), your dressing can speak for you and earn you the job. The panel is more likely to pick someone who is well-dressed, because if you can not get your own dressing right, what is the guarantee you will get the job right?
People will seek your opinion more
When you are well-dressed, you look like you have it all together. Thus people will seek your opinion on different subjects, not just fashion and styling.
You will be asked to speak during meetings
If your presence goes unnoticed during meetings, it might be because of your dressing. Your dull dressing might falsely lead people to think you bring nothing to the table. Try dressing sharply next time and light up the whole meeting!
You get more attention from the opposite gender
When you dress well, you realize you get more attention than you are used to. This is because you look more confident, interesting and attractive. Now, there is that part about inner beauty that we do not refute, but first impressions last. They matter.
Now, give your closet a face-lift, won’t you?
