Whether you work in a highly formal corporate environment, or one in which jeans are considered an acceptable daily wardrobe option, the term “dress for success” still applies. Your wardrobe is a form of communication. It tells people who you are, what they can expect from you, and how seriously you take yourself. Defining your personal brand begins with choosing what to wear every morning.
I’ve come across so many people who fail to see the connection between what they wear and how they perform. But if you don’t care about how you look, or if you don’t feel good about what you’re wearing, it’s impossible to project confidence and credibility in the workplace.
In my work as a personal image consultant, I offer two services to help busy professionals with this vital piece of the personal branding puzzle.
Image Consulting Through My Private Stylist and Men of Style
For some people, choosing what to wear is easy. They know what styles and colors look good on them and how to dress to stand out. For others, this process can be an exercise in extreme frustration. They don’t even know what their body shape is, let alone how to coordinate separates, wear color, or style outfits.
My Private Stylist and Men of Style are personal styling services aimed at helping these people to understand fit, color, styling and how different garment elements work on their bodies.
These are one-on-one, head-to-toe styling services that cover over 660 garment elements and accessories in over 40 categories. You input your measurements, I take that information and walk you through dress shapes, collar types, sleeve length, fabric weight, and color. This will help you learn how to coordinate separate pieces into outfits that allow you to stand out, feel confident, and move forward in your career.
Bespoke Clothing Through Tailored Club
Some are not able to buy off the rack for their body shape and have to have clothing custom made. In this case, Tailored Club is an excellent option. They make 100% bespoke clothing: that means that whatever you buy is designed, tailored and manufactured for your specific measurements.
Even if you don’t have issues finding clothes that fit you, investing in sophisticated work attire will help you gain the respect of your colleagues, clients, and higher-ups. Yes, custom clothing costs a little more, but that extra expense ensures higher quality and a great fit. When your clothes fit you correctly, you become more confident, credible, and capable.
Tailored Club makes everything from jeans to suits to tuxedos, skirts, dresses, and button-up shirts. If you can dream it up, they can make it for you. Through Tailored Club, I help you design your clothes from the buttons to the stitching to the fabrics and more. Tailored Club manufactures their clothing in Thailand using materials from all over the world. This allows them to offer multiple price points.
A Perfect Gift for the Holidays
MPS and Tailored Club gift cards make excellent gifts for just about anyone. Whether you’re buying for a recent college graduate in need of his first business suit, a person who’s had a significant weight change and could use a few new outfits, or someone looking to move up the career ladder and build a wardrobe that reflects their aspirations, either of these platforms has something to offer.
