On the road to success what about my clothing choices for the office Holiday parties?

It’s the Holidays!

You have spent time improving your visual image impression in the office.

You have the respect your desire and your leadership approach is getting results.

What do you wear to the office Holiday parties to stay on this road of your success?

Many people make the mistake of not changing their look for the office Holiday parties! They arrive in the same look from the office and miss the opportunity to show a different side of themselves. Don’t let that be you!

Several studies have been conducted which indicate the leverage you can achieve through image by dressing successfully for the Holiday parties! John Molloy’s “Live for Success” highlights several of these studies and the core discovery centers around the importance of establishing a different on trend persona at the office parties as opposed to the usual attire you would wear to work.

In general, when you work predominantly with women or with a business which is for women, your best choices will be more fashion oriented. Selectingattire or accessories which reflect the lastest trends is wise.

On the other hand, when your work environment includes predominantly men or isabout men, your best choices are simple, classic, and appropriate to the business brand.

As a corporate executive plan to express a different side of you. Select an outfit which continues to be simple, classic, and elegant adding a fashionably chic element appropriate to the occasion.

Wear a red sweater or a bolder color than you do as a rule. Wear fabrics which have a little sparkle or shimmer. For the most part, you can get away with a dressier outfit at a Holiday event.

Pause before choosing reindeer earrings or a lighted tie. Clownish accessories can send a message you may not have intended. Remember: You are still sending a message of being “in the know” and “moving forward” on your road of success!

Finally, for a successful professional impression even during the holidays forego clothes which are too revealing. Suggestion and allure are attractive. Subtly can go a long way when making an impression and to keep the statistical edge
you have built during the work week. Continue to make good choices. When you reveal too much, you may lose the respect you will need back at the office on Monday morning.

How are you going to resist the Holiday foods?

On the road to success YOU need to look like you BELONG there!

The Holidays are upon us! Perhaps with some significant effort  you have improved your body image since last year’s New Year resolutions! Perhaps our wardrobe even fits perfectly!

Personal Dilemma:

How are you going to resist all of those delicious Holiday foods? How are you going to honor your host or hostess and join in the fun of the party? You have been diligent and disciplined all year! You will continue to exercise regularly, but there are going to be those extra parties!

As a model in NYC, there was always  pressure  to be thin and fit! Staying that way was a constant challenge!

Anticipating the temptations can create anxiety. You ARE in control! There are simple choices which will help you!

Replace crunchy pretzels and crackers with carrots! Your eyes will love you for it!

Fill your plate up. Nibble on it and then leave it on a table as you get involved in a conversation!

Nourish yourself at the party with great conversations, connections, and relationships! It’s a wonderful time of year to develop a rapport with someone new! Change your focus to the people in the room! The food is incidental! It is just set dressing for the party which is starring YOU!!

Finally, if you find that the biggest temptations come when you are home alone, make a to do list and put it on the refrigerator! Set a goal to complete something on the list before you can open up the refrigerator door or the food pantry! You might get so involved in the activity that you forget about that snack!

It worked for me so it can work for you!

If you are someone who likes to analyze and think things through, have you ever realized there’s a  connection between “waiting” and “weighting”? When you procrastinate and put things off you add “weight”to your body and mind as you “wait” to do them!

 As soon as I realized that connection, I found I could begin tackling all the things I had been “waiting” to do, and the “weight” would begin to come off, too! Either way, you will get more accomplished and feel better about yourself!

Some of those tasks can be more involved than others. You just select the one you can do with the time you have like cleaning out a messy drawer; writing a thank you note; contacting a friend; or balancing a checkbook. Sound familiar?

So for the Holidays, make that list (check it twice..as the carol goes…)and you will find yourself better organized for 2013 and still fitting into your wardrobe when the New Year comes!

On the road of SUCCESS you need to look like YOU BELONG there!

I just love Fall Fashion, don’t you?

 I especially love exploring how the right choices for these fashions can continue to update wardrobes to help clients to stay ‘on trend’ and in the know, whether at the office or on the go.

Be a wise woman.

Most of my clients recognize that business is business.Dressing appropriately in the marketplace continues to be paramount to their overall success. They want to look the part.

After seeing the latest magazines and designer runway collections, with platform shoes and  the edgy style choices, this season–each one of us is second-guessing our corporate attire.

Stay the course.

The fashion industry wants that cash register to ring! But the choices they offer may not have you in mind as you move up that career ladder.

 

Yes, you want to look current and fashionable. Women must be able to easily change from business attire to evening or other settings. In fact, current research confirms that women need separate looks for evening, social occasions, and church.

 Be smart and choose wisely.

 When you wear seasonal selections, you deserve that statistical edge as that woman who is professional and  savvy!

How do you calibrate these seasonal designer trends for the office, so your image impression is  savvy and at the same time shows you at your business best?

Step one – select a color which is on trend and adapt it to your business wardrobe as a shell or blouse.

A solid color choice continues to communicate in the market place that you are solid and that your ideas are solid.

 

For the 4-1-1 on which colors and fall fashions will be best for you, book a confidential consultation with Bette Lord Hillman.

 

A consultation,  wardrobe analysis, makeover, or shopping excursion with Bette could give you the confidence that will make all the difference for you!

 

On YOUR road to success, you DESERVE to belong there!
