Career: The Power of Corporate Dressing

First impression last, could it be true? In a corporate world, the power of corporate dressing does matter to gain respect and create a good impression from others either working inside or outside the office. The physical appearance is the first to be noticed before one can say a single word that is why a good image with a business-like attitude of dressing is a must in business.

The power of dressing usually commands respect and attracts success starting it right with a good image. If a company is represented by its employees, they are expected to dress according to the company’s image and culture. Certain industries requires formal dressing such as Banking, Information Technology, Investment, Insurance, Hotel Industry etc. while Advertising and other creative industries are less formal and stylish.

Dressing appropriately exudes credibility and professionalism while dressing inappropriately particularly in a formal business meeting will give a message of incompetence and does not create a good first impression. Although the code of corporate dressing is still being observed, new breed of young professionals from the new age generations are becoming more open with their style either for formal or informal occasions. Fashion designers are also exploring new wardrobe possibilities tailored to young professionals which are now being accepted in the corporate world.

Different cultures have diverse opinion as to corporate dressing and as you have said different fields also have different idea of what is appropriate clothing. So I think corporate dressing is culture connected.

If you are a woman, the key thing is not to wear anything revealing. No skirts shorter than the knee and no cleavage. If you follow those rules, you can wear pretty much any style - dresses, suits, pant suits etc.
