The startup culture brings with it a much more casual approach to business attire. Today it’s much more about personal expression and being comfortable. But hoodies aside, there are a few details worth paying attention to because they can make a big impact on your public image.
A tailored white dress shirt – Truly a basic and a must in any business wardrobe because it can be dressed up or down according to the occasion. Again, the key is to select the garment that fits your body shape (Men / Women).
A quality work-bag – I see men and women dressed smartly and then throw a high-schooler back pack over their shoulder, makes me want to cry. Truly, there’s so many great options in anything from messenger bags, nice back-packs, the classic briefcase and every busy woman’s favorite: the schlepping bag. Leave the sports pack for the weekend.
Our public image is our calling card, make every detail work in your favor. When in doubt get a stylist to weigh in. It’s well worth the investment.
