Your clothes are important.

When we wear clothes well, they make us look more of whatever we want to convey. If you want to look confident, strong and competent, dressing appropriately will communicate that more powerfully. If you want to appear creative, witty and cutting-edge, you can dress that way too.

But be careful of becoming a clothes rack…

Be wary of becoming a mobile coat hanger.

If you have spent much time people watching you will have noticed that there are people that can make the best outfit look terrible. Their posture or their mannerisms or their accessorizing transform a very reasonable wardrobe decision into a disaster. It’s not just keeping clothes cleaned and pressed – though that’s important too – it’s looking the part.

Dress sharp and they’ll notice your suit. Dress impeccably and they’ll notice you.
