The image you portray to others, whether it’s at work or at play says more about you than you may think. An image consultant knows that we are what we wear counts. The first introduction, the first hello creates that very important first impression. So as a fashion expert and consulting service, we want you to get it right the first time. Here are some ways the clothing you choose can help you create your own image – the one you want to project.
Create Your Own Image
Using Clothing to Create Your Image
What You Wear Creates Your Style: According to resident Style expert, BJ Wilson, author of fashion textbooks including An Expert’s Guide to Fashion Stylingand The Fashion Cycle, all of the items in your closet create your personal style. In BJ’s books, she explains that basics, fabrics, and colors change with the seasons and the ideal closet will include basic pieces that set your style’s foundation. These foundational pieces along with pieces that reflect your unique personality, color preferences and lifestyle will all help to create your signature style.Once you develop your personal style, you can use it to help project the image you want. Fashion Education programs share that knowing your body type and creating a signature style streamlines your look and makes it easier to fill your closet with clothes that work for you. Knowing the styles and silhouettes that flatter your the body most and choosing the colors that accentuate your natural beauty and reflects your personality will help you further craft your unique image.
What You Wear Shows Confidence and Improves Self Image: A consistent sense of style shows you know who you are, are confident and pay attention to details. The colors you consistently wear and the clothing categories that are most relevant to lifestyle contribute to the overall projection of your image. Although clothing often makes the first impression, energy and attitude, including confidence, is something else felt immediately. The right clothing can increase confidence and self-esteem.Because not all clothing looks the same on every body type, BJ Wilson’s process stresses the importance of the five body shapes and knowing what clothing style recommendations are for each one. Feeling good about what you wear improves the way you feel and strengthens your self-image. Once you finally develop your personal style and are able to fully project the image you want in confidence, you’ll see the changes in how you see yourself. Look good, feel good, am I right?
What You Wear Is Important to Others: As we mentioned above, the clothing we wear makes an impression and impacts how others perceive you. Even though corporate culture is changing and becoming less formal than in the past, what you wear plays a definite role in how you are received in the workplace and social gatherings. Your clothing could make the difference between closing the sale, getting a promotion or even a social invitation.
