What Top Executives Should Never Wear

TalkShop business tipsThe way a person dresses speaks volumes about himself. Unavoidably, each person is gauged by how he dresses and carries himself. These hint at his professionalism, stature, level of sophistication, credibility, and intelligence. At the workplace, top executives and those aspiring for top positions will do well to dress according to the organization’s culture and his part in it. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises about what not to wear:

1. Garish colors and provocative clothes will make it hard for anyone to respect you. Go for color combinations that communicate respect and respectability.

2. Soiled, clingy or badly-fitting clothes will never look good on anyone nor with anything. Go for quality and polished look.

3. Unkempt hair and outlandish nail polish will never be fashionable. Go for clean and simple look.

4. Thick make-up for women is never attractive. Business make-up should be minimal with focus either on eyes or lips.

5. Fragrance that others can smell a mile away is a big turn off. Less is more with scents. It is alright not to wear fragrance.

6. Big belt buckles, loud ties, gaudy or excessive jewelry attract the wrong attention. Invest your money wisely.

7. Exposed bra straps and underwear lines speak ill of every aspect of your personality. Take a second or third look at yourself in front of a full view mirror, before leaving the house.

8. Muscle shirt and short socks that do not cover the calf make a man look unpolished, not to mention unprofessional.

9. Body art, body piercings, and any types of tattoos communicate the wrong message. Cover them up.

10. Cheap, dirty, and worn shoes will never get you anywhere, in both career and day to day destinations.

Looking professional lets your organization know you are capable. Sport the proper look for the polish that can advance your career.
