Nine excellent style tips that are worth considering…

We’re great fans of the Carrie Colbert blog and a recent article has really caught our eye – it’s subtitled The Dos and Don’ts of Dressing Like a Leader, the concept of which makes a great deal of sense when the thorny question of what to wear to work is considered…

The article starts off really well, with one of the best pieces of advice we’ve heard in quite a while:-

“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

Appearances DO matter, explains the piece, which is why your “personal branding” is so important. The nine tips are all valuable and interesting and are well worth checking out.

Our favourites include,

  • “Don’t be too trendy
  • “Do familiarize yourself with the environment
  • “Don’t over accessorize”.

And the one thing you can’t afford to ignore? That’s obvious – “Don’t wear open-toed shoes”!!!
