In a way, our annual “Dressed For Success” issue is all about first impressions. Nothing says more about you to the world than the way you dress and how you carry yourself. Without a word, the colors, styles and brands you choose to wear are a pretty good indicator of the person you are — or, in some cases, who you want to be. The latter is the key to your next step, if you’re still establishing your career and developing your career. If your style isn’t evolving, work and life will likely become stagnant. If you learn one thing from this issue, I hope you realize that developing your own personal style will open doors for you that you never imagined. Research goes a long way when determining the right look for you, as does asking your friends, family and colleagues for fashion tips and advice. Sometimes an outfit you think looks really great on you, doesn’t have the same impact on the public at large. In fact, it could be sending the completely wrong message. Accept it, move on and donate any clothes that don’t make you look your best to a local charity. Everybody wins.
