Presenting a Professional Image, women's business attire (Infographic)

 Being a professional involves a lot more than how we interact with fellow employees, employers, and the clients that we encounter. It also involves more than just than just our job performance. One of the most important factors to being a professional is the way in which we dress. Businesswomen contend with a number of issues when it comes to presenting themselves in a professional manner.

When it comes to planning a professional wardrobe there are a number of factors for women to take into consideration. Here are just a few of these factors:

  • Wear fitted clothes, this is not too complicated, but many people ignore this basic concept.
  • Make sure your blouses are not too low, exposing too much cleavage, or your skirts are too short, exposing too much leg. You are a professional, present yourself as such.
  • Wear clothes that are appropriate for your company/industry. If you were in a corporate office, bank, or even many high-end retailers, jeans and t-shirts are not appropriate.

Here are some of the things you should aim to avoid:

  • Avoid excessive amounts of accessories. Simple and understated is the best option when presenting a professional image. Additionally excessive or clunky jewelry that is visually distracting or makes noise can be distracting to other co-workers and clients entering your workplace.
  • Avoid the use of strong perfumes, as many people have allergies or the scent may overwhelm others.
  • Even on casual clothes days, avoid wearing ripped or torn clothing items. Although they may be fashionable outside of work, at the office they are not.
  • Avoid the excessive use of makeup keep it simple and clean. Keep fingernails well manicured and only use light or neutral polish colors.
  • Keep your hair well groomed, and never go to work with wet hair as it can demonstrate you lack time management skills.

Dressing professionally at work is essential to make the best impression to everyone that you will encounter at your office. A client that comes into an office and sees someone that is unkempt, dressed far too casually, or appears to take no pride in their appearance can leave that client wondering if they will be as inattentive when it comes to their business concerns.

Another tip to remember is when you get a new job; make sure you read over the dress code rules and regulations. The best way to avoid problems related to your work attire is to find out exactly your employer expects from you.
