If You Want To Make A Good First Impression You Need To Be Concerned With The Way You Dress

Aug 17, 2007
It is a popular saying that you don't have a second opportunity to make a good first impression. And what gives a first impression more than your appearance? What constitutes your appearance if your attire is not considered? It is often true that you are addressed the way you are dressed. It is therefore very important that we give it close attention because it is often people's preferred yardstick for evaluating our person. In some cases, it is the only yardstick they will ever have.

A slovenly dressed person may have noble thoughts and character. However, he rarely gets the opportunity to show his true worth. A lot of opportunities have been lost because little attention was paid to it. Great relationships also have ended sometimes because it was not given its due place.

The style of your wardrobe should reflect your person and by person I refer to your age, status, circumstances, responsibility and obligations. What may be appropriate for one age group in a certain situation may be totally acceptable for another. Your clothing also should enhance your natural appearance. It should cover faults and reinforce your good aspects. There are ways to achieve this for those who really are committed to it. This is really a subject that will be done much justice if a person uses a little common sense.

There is certainly a limit to how proper clothing can enhance a person's natural appearance. On the other hand, there is also no appearance that cannot be enhanced by a careful selection and combination of cloths.

Your hairstyle, the length and design of your clothes, the colors all play together to make or mar your appearance. Look at those who look good, there are certainly a few who have some or most of your features. See what they wear that looks good and try them out. You'll be surprised at how much change you'll achieve your appearance. And with your appearance enhanced, you'll be surprised at the doors and opportunities that will open up to you.

In case you are tempted to belittle the importance of good clothing, ask yourself who you'll approach to do business with: A neatly dressed gentleman or sloppy and unkempt fellow. Your guess is as good as mine.
Most of us will always choose to do business with a person who is dressed appropriately for their business area. So the next time you are considering wearing a casual outfit to work you should reconsider and put on your best suit. Your business associates will appreciate the effort you put into making a great first appearance. Plus when you dress up you will automatically feel better about yourself.
