Clothing Makes a Statement Positive or Negative

Consistency Allows You to Be More Credible

Wardrobe and Visual Credibility Go Together
When you meet another person, you are evaluated first by your dress, the second how you speak, and third by your words. If you feel misunderstood, the first place to check is your appearance, the clothing you are wearing, and what you are doing?-?next, check how you are speaking and then what you are saying.

You make a statement that is positive or negative. When it comes to other opinions, there is a minimal gray area. First impressions and image management allow you to experience impression management, which is a crucial skill in the world today.

If you are making the wrong image statement, it is easy to overlook. That is why being consistent with your image from day to day is so important. The consistency allows you to be more credible to yourself and others.

Visual credibility then allows for the person you are meeting to enable you to present your information to them. If you are not visually credible, you often do not get an opportunity to present your material. It might be the exact information the person you are meeting needs but, if you are not allowed to explain it, they will miss the chance of receiving what they were trying to find. Because of the credibility gap, you may never be able to present the information to them.

It is unfortunate that packaging-the way you are dressing-could keep you from being successful in the world when trying to share your information. Consider that any effort in the area of image or image improvement could significantly impact your success.

Many people do not want to be bothered. Still, suppose they only knew the difference their image was making. In that case, it might give them a reason to reconsider image importance.

Stop Being Overlooked As A Person

When You Are Going for An Interview

Having the Face As Your Focal Point
As you look through the fashion magazines today, you will notice that the clothing is where your eye goes, and the person wearing the clothing gets missed. People can ignore you if you purchase the same items and wear them the way you saw them on the mannequin.

Get Hired and Don’t Miss Any Available Promotions
When you are trying to go for an interview, it is not a good thing when they overlook you. If you are already in a job, it might mean you missed any available promotions or do not get the credit for your work and ideas.

The thing that is an essential detail that you need to pay attention to is: are you seen in what you are wearing. Being seen applies to both men and women. In business, they have to see and remember you. If you want to be the one to get the order, command attention from the group you are presenting your program. Remember, your audience must be able to get to and stay focused on your face. Otherwise, their mind is off on a dialog about something unrelated to what you are telling them.

How to Get Your Work Done
We have all had that experience, the mind chatter kicks in, and we completely missed the person’s point. Then, you have to have the material repeated so you can try to listen the second time they go through their presentation. Sometimes, the clothing or the accessories are so distracting that we never get the information?-?a massive waste of time for them and you.

How to Be the One to Get The Order
Be sure to dress is such a way that the people meeting you can get to and stay focused on your face. That way, you can be efficient in your connections and in getting your work done.
