Should You Hire A Fashion Consultant To Teach You To Dress For Success
Are you totally hopeless when it comes to shopping? Do you often find yourself staring in stores at merchandise and not knowing what to choose? Do you have more bad hair days than good? Do you have trouble picking out the right shoes? Are you inept or afraid to use makeup?
Maybe you should hire a fashion consultant. Fashion is not for everyone. Some women just do not know how to pull the look together. Or they are too busy to shop. Or they just have no interest in clothing and feel that they can better spend their time getting ahead by working harder.
Hillary Clinton, when she first became First Lady, was a mess. She wore a headband and was generally unconcerned about her appearance. She could not understand why everyone was concerned with her appearance at all. After all, she was an intelligent woman who was very successful in her career. But she came across to the American people as frumpy.
In order to improve her image, she hired a fashion consultant. Take a look at Hillary Clinton now. She is poised. She is polished and she is always dressed impeccably as well as professionally. She is more interested in politics than clothing and probably would rather read the Wall Street Journal than Vogue. There is nothing wrong with this. Her interest lie elsewhere. But, unfortunately, hard work does not always get you the promotion or success you desire. Unfortunately, we are judged by our appearance. And if we want to succeed, we have to look successful. Men have it easy. They throw on a shirt, tie, suit and shoes and they are off to work. No one notices. Unfortunately, women are judged a little more on their appearance, even in this day and age. It is important not to only be good at your job, but also to look the part of a professional.
A fashion consultant can help you pull your look together. They can tell you which type of clothes you should wear and which colors look most flattering on you. Women no longer have to dress like men to get ahead, they can wear colors, they can look feminine. They can maintain their feminine qualities and still look professional. Choosing the right clothes and accessories are difficult for many women, particularly those who have spent so much time working and studying in their field. These women can benefit greatly from a fashion consultant.
In addition to helping you choose the right clothes, shoes and accessories for work, a fashion consultant can help you find the right hairstyle that is both professional and flattering for your face shape. They can even advise you on color.
If you are afraid to wear makeup, a fashion consultant can instruct you on the correct ways to apply makeup to enhance your features. Makeup is supposed to bring out the best part of your features, not be used as a mask. A big mistake women make when applying makeup is either using too much during the day or not enough. Or not blending it properly. A fashion consultant can show you wish colors look best for you, which to wear to work and how to apply and blend it properly.
A woman I knew where I used to work was brilliant. She was probably the smartest attorney I ever knew. But she was not going to rise in the corporate ladder. The reason? She did not care about her appearance one iota. She never bothered with her hair or wore makeup and the clothes she wore looked like she got them from a rummage sale. She was successful, smart and had money. But she had no clue as to how to dress for success.
If you want to truly be successful, you have to look the part. You have to not only be good at what you do, but you have to look professional and polished. If you are too busy to be concerned about your appearance, hire a fashion consultant to help you. You will be surprised at the results.
