We live in a world where the reality is how you present yourself to the world matters… including your personal style. Managing and developing your personal style can be a major game changer in your personal and professional life.
Your personal style is defined by the way you dress and groom yourself. This can change over time. However, it’s very important to check in and regularly update your style and image for the following top 3 reasons:
1 – Control Your First Impression
The world of business is all about relationships. I’ve said time and time again that making a good first impression matters!
Did you know it only takes a person 7-15 seconds to formulate a first opinion of you? You know, size you up…
In no more than 15 seconds a person will speculate
- Your Profession
- Both your income and education level
- Your social habits and lifestyle
- And more…
The way you dress makes up 75% of your first impression. Therefore, it’s important dress the way you wish to be approached and treated.
2 – Builds Self Esteem
I’ve worked with hundreds of women from all around the world and I can confidently say, “Confidence comes from authentically representing yourself, and knowing you’re looking the part!”.
Personal style is all about self expression and feeling invincible in your wardrobe choices. This goes without saying, but it’s important to put some thought and time into your fashion choices.
Trust me, I’ve been everything from a size 8 to 18. As a plus size woman, I committed to learning the right fabrics, colors, and cuts for my shape. And let me tell you, I was more confident as a plus size woman than I ever was when I was a size 8. Why? Because I knew I was doing it right!
When you love what you wear, it shows!
3 – It’s Ultimately Your BRAND
Yep, that’s right! You, my friend, are a brand.
How you present yourself, leaves a lasting impression in others’ minds.
When someone thinks of you, what do you want them to think about? What do you want to represent?
If you need a little help figuring this out, no fear! I’ve developed the Personal Style Statement Worksheet for you to define exactly what you want your personal brand to represent in the world!
