Professionalism is important for first impressions as well as for representing lasting characteristics and consistency. Continuously dressing well in tailored clothing sends that message of consistency in character and professionalism.
In an era when CEOs sport jeans and hoodies, it’s hard to know how to dress for your job. Real Simple asked professionals in a range of industries to reveal what they think about your 9-to-5 style—and what it means for your climb up the ladder.
The old saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover” may be true, but book jacket and product packaging designers around the world have created an industry betting that people do judge and purchase products based on how they look. And career counselors still advise their clients to dress for the job they want – not the job they currently have. Counselors know that people are evaluated by their appearance (this is a key body language element in first impressions), and they want their clients to gain a nonverbal advantage by already “looking the part.”
