Our way of dressing says a lot about us. It’s much more than what we imagine. The way we dress defines our status symbol, and more importantly, it is a factor when it comes to people’s impression of you.
The problem with our society is that we judge people quickly by the clothes they wear and they automatically conclude things basing on how we look.
Therefore, if other people’s opinion about you doesn’t matter, how about impression? This sad truth may make you think dressing appropriately and decently matters.
We have to consider that dolling up is art; it is the art of learning and mastering how to carry ourselves on every occasion that we attend. Of course, you should be basing the dress or clothes to the party that you’re taking part with for you to blend with the mood of the event.
Dolling up for that particular occasion means that you’re paying respect to the event you’re attending and the people who celebrate it.
So, in this article, we will be giving you a quick guide on how to dress appropriately for particular events.
Most of the time, weddings are a white or black tie occasion except for a change of the stereotype from white or black to some other colors of the spectrum.
For women, it is advisable not to touch white for your dress as this color is for the bride only. Open your wardrobe and look for your best gowns. But if you don’t feel like wearing floor-length gowns, knee-length dresses would still be fine. Make sure your accessories compliment the mood of the event.
For the gentlemen, it would always be best to wear a tuxedo. Dark suits are the most popular choices partnered with dark-colored party pair of shoes. But if you don’t feel like dark colors, you can still opt to wear something light but make sure it’s suitable for the event and the season.
A cocktail party is commonly known as a social gathering that is not as formal as a wedding. Therefore, the appropriate dress code for this type of occasion is semi-formal clothes.
The perfect apparel for men would always be tuxedos, and for the ladies, it would be best to wear evening dresses as these are the most common for this kind of party. Dark shades are acceptable as they veer between what’s appropriate for fancy and semi-formal parties.
When it comes to men’s cocktail apparel, a coat, tie and of course a suit would be pretty acceptable while a woman’s clothing is best when the dress reaches the knee and has a bit of frills on it.
Before hopping into the choice of having a mini dress as your cocktail get up, you have to put in mind that there’s like a thin line between being alluring and being indecent.
It is common sense that dressing in a vulgar way or wearing a dress that is too provocative is a big no-no when it comes to business dinners or company parties. Your application for promotion will surely be rejected and definitely will not be beneficial for you.
It would be best for women to doll up with dress pants, some casual dress or even a skirt matched with a decent blouse when it comes to business gatherings.
For men, it would be all right for them to wear dress pants or khakis partnered with shirts that have collars. The rule of the thumb is to be professional always, in how you look, how you say and how you act.
We consider a job interview one of the most important events in our lives. This event in our life determines if we can get that job post that we have been dreaming of for a long time. That is why we have to leave a good impression for you to get the position or else your resume letter goes to the trash can.
The most common dress code during job interviews is a suit. Your get up should reflect that you are someone who’s attitude is professional, disciplined, and respectful to your coworkers.
If you’re not entirely sure what to wear, call your friends who are HR executives and ask their opinion. Doll up like a professional, so it gives an impression that you understand the company rules and that you’re undoubtedly interested in the job.
A tailor-fitted suit will do the job for you. For women, it would be best to avoid distractive jewelry like a statement necklace. A smart looking watch would be perfect for you as this will give the impression that you value time (either for men or women). They would notice it.
Let’s face the sad truth – our appearance impacts people’s impression of us. You might notice some people avoid you if you dress inappropriately, and others will treat you with respect if you dress professionally.
It is unfair, and we know that. That is why we have to dress accordingly on every occasion that we attend or celebrate. You don’t have to wear some one hundred dollar piece of shirt for you to look decent. All you have to put in mind is to dress according to the event.
