The first impression is the best impression! I am a strong believer in that. Let me put it this way, it’s all about how we carry ourselves. That can manifest in many ways, such as the choice of clothes, how we communicate, our dining etiquette, the body language. The better you carry yourself, the more influence you will have on others because you will have earned their trust. The dress code is a formality determined by occasions and circumstances. It was created out of social perceptions and norms. I must say, perhaps, we should all follow it. Basically, depending on how you carry yourself, that’s what society’s perception will be towards you. Many people are judgmental based on looks alone.
Remember, your style in public events is essential. Wear smart casual, formal outfits if you want to show professionalism. Good quality fabric, sophisticated accessories, varying tones according to the event. Last but not least, communication is one big factor in the power of influence. Learn that courtesy goes a long way. Greeting formally with the elderly, or the superiors, always adds a personal touch to your image and it won’t go unnoticed.
