No matter where you go or what you do, one thing remains the consistent: first impressions are everything. I was once told it takes a mere seven seconds to create that imprint on someone else’s mind.
Because the afforementioned is well-known knowledge, it still amazes me how lackadaisical people are about their appearances and what they wear to work. I strongly believe that being the epitome of professional doesn’t have to mean loosing your personality. For instance, all of my “signature” style touches are included in this outfit. I am wearing a touch of leopard. a gold statement necklace and an edgy bag that is the opposite of boring.
For the first impression, always err of the side of utter professionalism. Nothing too tight, short or skin-bearing is obviously good judgement. I got myriad of compliments on my outfit but I realized quickly that thanks to being placed in a more casual buying pod, I can have a few more liberties with work wear in the future.
