Dressing for Advancement

Dress Not for the Job You Have, But for the Job You Want to Have

During these uncertain economic times it is absolutely important to present your best personal image at all times. The old adage has become increasingly true, “dress not for the job you have, but for the job you want to have.” It’s always fashionable to make smart investments – to build a wardrobe where every piece easily works with every other piece in your closet.

Investing in yourself with an Image Consultant with extensive training in the areas of grooming, proper fit of garments, current fashion trends and personal presentation is one of the best ways to tackle this problem head on. Ann Damon Reilly, a certified Image Consultant, has worked with many clients on updating their professional image through personal shopping trips. Ann says that one of the most frequent problems her clients have is not understanding how a few simple pieces can totally change an outfit and people’s perception of you. “Having a great suit is key, but why not add personal flair with a colorful scarf or delicately jeweled top underneath to help you stand out from the crowd?” says Ann. “Simple investment pieces are key.”  

Another great tip she shares with us is to re-mix what you currently have in your closet. “Take a minute and look through your current wardrobe. How can you change the way you wear a few things to add depth to your existing wardrobe?” says Ann. Her best tip is that every item you own should be able to be worn multiple ways.

Ann Damon Reilly has been extensively trained by the Sterling Style Academy, an internationally recognized institute that prepares men and women for success in the image, fashion and style industries.
