There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly professional women are progressively more in demand, they’re now doing jobs that typically their male colleagues held onto for years and gaining respect for their own achievements. Dress code in the work place has definitely relaxed, gone are the days of wearing a stuffy skirt or trouser suit, now it’s all about portraying a more youthful yet ‘still’ serious image and having a distinguished yet effortless style that stands out!
Business casual wear on Fridays can be a potential nightmare too with many women not knowing what a smart/casual dress code involves or how to achieve their desired look.
Women are finding themselves competing against each other as well as with their male colleagues for the same promotions … and this means that services such as business coaching and personal styling are growing in popularity as these types of services can help the individual achieve the edge they need.
There has never been a better time to address a more confident image at work because the outcome will always help you feel 100 times better about your current position and potentially what you are capable of achieving down the line.
The modern woman has grown to become more sensitive about her own body image, understandably, as there’s always a slight issue with comparing themselves with celebrity role models. In addition, there’s always been an underlying debate on whether ‘good looking’ girls do get ahead more quickly and no one wants to miss out.
However, the majority of the work of a stylist now involves trying to help corporate ladies appreciate what they have, making the very best of their good bits – in our opinion every size and shape can look fabulous when dressed in the right outfits.
Knowing how to dress for your body shape is one thing, but styling your work look to represent your personality is crucial when those promotions are starting to appear for the year ahead.
Seeking the assistance of a Personal Stylist and Corporate Image Consultant to revamp your style in the workplace means you can gain that edge you need to get your career off to a flying start in 2010.
