Dress To Impress, Always. Demystifying Dress Code For Women And Men.

‘Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.’ – Marilyn Monroe

I’m visiting a Honda dealership today, for a simple oil change… Nothing extraordinary was happening this morning until I parked my car.

A nicely dressed young gentlemen with a beautiful white smile, a perfect hairstyle, well-ironed shirt, and tie, wearing Gucci shoes quickly opened a door for me (like I was a superstar from Hollywood Walk of Fame) and professionally took my order, wow, that is five-star Ritz Carlton customer service, I was impressed and speechless! The sales person was happy, energized and very friendly.

It’s unbelievable, I thought it’s just a Honda dealership located in a small town, it’s not a luxury brand like Lexus or Mercedes where you probably would expect a high-quality five-star super service.

Let me ask you, how do you dress to work?
I personally, never wear a tie to work (Why would I?!), exceptions: important meetings with stakeholders since I work in the corporate world, maybe a friends wedding or church event, that’s probably it, unfortunately.

But I guess it’s not a case for others, for people who respect fashion, for people who love to work hard and stay professional.

Why Dress to Impress.

Sometimes I think that we’ve lost of sense of style in the 21st century or how to dress well, and if we finally decided to dress well, we need to have a big reason for it, right?

For sure, the most cost-effective way of dressing up would be blue jeans and a black T-shirt, and there is nothing wrong with it, I personally love this style, but if we think for a second.. this style might not potentially benefit to either your personal goals (happy living, meeting your soulmate, etc.,) or professional goals – promotion at work or many others.

Lets, Dress to Impress!

Let’s take a look at the list of quick suggestions for your new and awesome look:

1. Smile

Who does not love beautiful smiles, when you smile, people smile back at you, isn’t it amazing? Visit a dentist regularly, and make sure you have a million-dollar smile.

2. Hairstyle

“If I want to knock a story off the front page, I just change my hairstyle.” Hillary Clinton

3. Suite Or Modest Skirt and Blouse

Purchase a great looking, well-tailored suit/modest skirt and blouse. If you have it already and your body complexion changed over time, please spend extra and retailored it again or buy a new one.

4. Jeans

Have at least 2 pairs of expensive and good looking (on you) jeans. Reason: a date night, dinner with your lovely wife, a special occasion.

5. Shirt and T-Shirts

You have to have plain color (grey, white, blue, red, yellow and don’t forget about classic black color) shirts, T-shirts, with no logos or photos (it’s classic asset and would work well for 2018, 2025 and 2075 as well).

6. Shoes or High-heels 

Gentlemen, please spent a good amount of money and have 2 – 3 really good pair of standard and/or classical shoes. Ladies, you look amazing and sexy when you wear high-heels, it’s time to get a few pairs of Christian Louboutin and please learn how to walk on them. Not each girl/lady knows the secrets of beautiful walking. Sometimes the heels are not right (too long or too short), sometimes a body complexion won’t fit the heel style, well, you can read a lot about it.

7. Perfume

Remember, when we all shop in the same stores, the best way to stand out from the crowd is to have a unique and rich perfume blend on you.

Unfortunately, not every perfume is the same or would fit your style. Some of them designed for a younger generation, others for more mature people. Remeber, you have your own unique body smell, the perfume you wear/will wear will mix with your unique body smell and produce a unique blend. So please do at least quick 15 minutes research on perfume lines and designers, or ask an opinion of people you love and trust, let them smell you and tell you what they think.

8. Gym Time

Well, believe me, your clothes can look rich, amazing and expensive but if your body does not look toned and good, clothes won’t look as well as they should. So please visit a gym, at least 2-3 times a week or exercise at your apartment/home/garage, I’m 100% sure you can find a way and time, I believe in you.

9. Makeup

Yes, you are beautiful, but a simple and professional makeup will make you look even more attractive.

10. No Time to Shop?

Not a problem, next time you visit a store, please ask for a sales representative to help you, they are awesome at Nordstrom! Explain to them your needs, and in 20-30 minutes you will be 100% set or hire a personal assistant who would help or invite your wife/friend/girlfriend/boyfriend and enjoy your evening together!

Don’t forget that you have to update constantly what you wear, things get old and out of style, it does not mean you have to overspend.

Don’t forget that you have to look unique and charming. You, it’s you!

Don’t forget that you deserve to look awesome today, not tomorrow or next month. Do you agree?

  1. Very true, I agree 100% This isn’t something too many people find to be of much importance, but it really is! Unfortunately, you will be judged by your looks. Not to sound harsh but it’s true, I see you before I even get a chance to speak to you. It’s just what it is. Here I am, almost mid-thirties and I still remember what my kindergarten teacher told us one day in the classroom, “how you dress is a representation of who you are.” “It represents, your home, your room, your parents, your family!” Amen! I’ve instilled that in my children. If we even have to go to the store to pick up milk, you will brush your teeth, comb your hair, and wear clean clothes out. If their shirt is for any reason stained, they will run to their closet and change it. Their room gets picked up every night – to start the next day with a clean room and home.
