It looks like we’ll all be soon returning to work, although I’m sure there’ll be many who continue to work from home, with virtual Zoom meetings.
So, how are we feeling about our work wear? Our work clothes have probably been in the wardrobe unworn. Work is our main source of income and therefore we should dress accordingly. It’s worth spending that little more to make your clothes work for you in the workplace. Have you noticed how different you feel when you’ve got dressed up for a zoom meeting rather than sticking to your pj’s or sports gear? Personally, by adding some jewellery, makeup and smart clothes makes all the difference to how I feel.
What image do you wish to portray? Approachable, authoritative, professional , knowledgeable… the list is endless, do your clothes represent who you are?
Before getting back in the workplace, now is the time to look at all your workwear and see if anything needs repairing (check for buttons missing or hems coming undone!) or cleaning - or just chucking out!
Dig out your handbag or briefcase and give it a good sort out - bet there’s stuff in there you’ve forgotten about! ( and a pile of old receipts)
It's worth spending that little more time on your appearance. Even if just for that virtual meeting.
