Dress for work success

When we go out what we wear tells the world who we are!
Today the trend is towards a more relaxed atmosphere in the workplace giving us more options about what to wear. Since our choice of clothing has an impact on our personal reputation, we need to be careful not to be too free when it comes to our work attire even when we have the option to be very relaxed. This can leave room for a misstep.

For example on an episode of "How Do I Look?" the other evening, the
mid-twenties woman was wearing things she had since age 4.
She was a graphic artist, and the host presented her work to a group of
Industry professionals. They loved it. However, when they met her, she
was dressed in her typical child's clothing and had cat ears in her hair.
They immediately discounted her as a potential candidate.

Though we are dressing for comfort we can still be very stylish. We can assert a little bit of individuality and personal style while at the same time staying one step ahead of the expected. It’s ok to throw in some fun, unexpected pieces. Know the trends. Keep an eye out for the special trend that is just right for you. This can boost our confidence.

“While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence - which, I believe, does make the woman.”Mary Kay Ashe

I thought the styles below would be a great choice for a graphic artist.
