Do your Carry Yourself with Dignity Fitting an Executive?
You may need a wardrobe makeover for women if you don’t know how to dress and carry yourself at work.
If you observe a supervisor whose instructions are harmoniously carried out by her employees, she is likely to be in uniform or dress that is appropriate; a woman feels most like an executive when she is dressed like one.
Have you ever seen a woman that is so well put together and carries herself well? Her image and style look great!
Wonder how she did it? Someone women that dresses with intention always seem to look fabulous, they know where they’re going and who they are going to see. They are very conscious of the role they’re going to play that day. Motivation is a great way to get you started. I find taking risks usually motivates me. Step out and try something new. Put on your prettiest dress a fun pair of shoes and don’t forget to accessorize your outfit.
Or do you feel like you are just beginning to learn what it means to “carry yourself” well? Do you act more like a movie star? Or someone trying to be someone? Be yourself. Be confident. Be “put together”. It can yield a changed life as well as a wardrobe and help you look like you are ready for that executive job you want.
Accessories are important
Remember if you are unsure, not just any accessory is being mindful of what looks great with your outfit. Think in scale, if you have a small frame than smaller jewelry would be appropriate for you. If you have a medium frame than medium size jewelry would be appropriate and larger frame larger scale jewelry would be for you. Now mind you I did not say gaudy, be tasteful in your choices, less is more.
How are your grooming skills? Do you have an updated hairstyle one that fits your face shape? Do you spend time on your hair or do you just whip it together? Are you wearing make-up that compliments your natural beauty and appearance? Do you bathe in your perfume? Less is more or none at all. How about your facial hair and your breath? Invest in a magnifying mirror you will make sure you see all you need to see. Always carry breath mints with you where ever you go. These are all things to be aware of when you leave your house.
Etiquette is one area many people tend to forget. When greeting someone hold your head high, look people straight in the eye and address them by their name. Give them a firm handshake and smile. A smile goes a long way it makes people more at ease and comfortable around you.
