Professional dress is critical in business. It is more than our public skin, it is a language. The way you package yourself sends a message about you, your skills, and your organization. It takes only a few seconds to form a first impression, and more than half of that first impression is based on appearance.
Professional dress for men and women is also a critical component of your
organization’s brand. Maintaining a competitive edge requires that your staff
sustain a consistent visual impression with customers. Your employees are the
ambassadors of your organization, and the way they are perceived determines how
your organization is perceived by customers, the community, and the marketplace.
Professional Dress for Men
Keeping track of the most acceptable trends and international standards for professional dress earns you respect and provides you with a competitive edge. Executing this knowledge sends the message that you are as up-to-date in your appearance as you are in your business skills.
Our professional image consultants offer the most complete and updated information on professional dress for men, including comprehensive material about different styles, fabrics, and patterns for suits; the type of shirt and collar style that is best for you; which ties are best suited for your professional attire and your organization; how to combine colors and patterns for your wardrobe; and which accessories or finishing touches best complement or detract from your appearance. We also offer detailed checklists for maintaining your professional appearance and a clothing I.Q. quiz to test your personal knowledge on professional dress.

Professional Dress for Women
Women's professional dress is more complex than ever. From trends to acceptable fashion, professional dress for women has evolved over the last few decades, and keeping your appearance up-to- date projects confidence and credibility.

Therefore, we answer frequently asked questions about what is appropriate to wear for different formal and casual work environments. We include topics such as: the six occasions that call for wearing a jacket; the appropriate business suit, blouse, business dress, skirt, shoes and hose, and accessories; when and how to wear pants; and how to put your business look together. Our Professional Image Consultants have created a checklist for daily preparation, guidelines for finishing touches for your face, and a clothing I.Q. quiz to test what you really know about professional dress.
