Apart from looking great and presentable, your style can affect your career. Though looking fashionable doesn’t necessary mean having the noblest professions, it can really make a difference. You don’t have to put fashion at the top of your priority list, but it is important to consider fashion and style as it relates to your goals. So, keep on reading for our guidelines on how to use your style to accomplish your goals.
Keep in mind that personal style has nothing to do with fashion.
Remember, trends come and go, and fashion is fleeting. If you’re going to pay attention on current trends, some people might not pay attention to you, knowing you’re just trying to keep up with fads. On the other hand, personal style is something unique, different, and original that will draw attention to your individuality. When developing personal style it is all about dressing in a way that reflects what you value most. Trendy outfit, color blocking, statement dress, catchy accessories are all fruitless things to concern yourself with if your wardrobe doesn’t first, and most importantly, reflect what matters to you.
Think and dress in an accomplished manner.
Though resolutions make us aware of what we want to create in our lives next, dress in an accomplished manner to make your goals look more realistic. Like fashion blogger Jennifer Selmanovic, if you want a promotion on your corporate job, dress in a promoted manner as your style will help you get there when you dress as the end result. Remember, since your dress communicates and reflects the image you want to project, dress for your goals. If you want to look like a fashion blogger, dress in a statement-making or eccentric way like fashion blogger Nina Suess did wearing a dress and bomber jacket with her jeans.
Don’t let fashion use you.
Personal style is just a part of the equation in the achievement of goals. However, fashion can make you its slave very easily if you’re not careful. Items you haven’t worn in your closet, as well as things have you bought for unnecessary reasons are some of the proofs of being slave into fashion. Make sure your wardrobe is stylish at the same time functional to make your style fun and effective.
Think of your style as part of your story.
Think of your personal style as a form of communication. It doesn’t matter what you want to say as much as how well you say it. By creating an image and feeling of confidence and success in your outer appearance, it will help you get wherever it is you want to go. So, express yourself with your style and get the goals that you aim for.
