You are Stylish, you are Professional , you are Unique. So is your office Nvironment , and the Konnect that you build with it.
Your SPUNK will show through the balance that you create with the 5 elements mentioned above.
The Style Scale cannot be divided into watertight levels or compartments. It is a continuum, and you can upgrade or downgrade by adding or removing some elements.
- Working in IT or the creative fields ? Sharp and formal business suits are a No-No for gaining acceptability. You need to walk the thin line between casual and sloppy. A dishevelled look is not professional, even if you have worked late for 3 nights, or were catching 40 winks on your office desk. Just that casual trousers count above denims, and a tailored shirt counts above a round-neck Rock a jumpsuit with a shrug. It keeps you warm, and reflects warmth and affability.
- Working in a bank ? Is it all greys and blues, jackets and closed shoes ? Rock the reds, or don a dress. Do not be weary of prints, just team it with black to stay higher on the style scale.
Add a dash of style with a reverse or side French manicure, or a scarf /brooch that lifts the look.
- The 5 rules that Wikipedia does not tell you are about balancing the Authentic and Appropriate.
- Body shape
The attire should suit your body shape, not spill out of the HR policies or fashion blogs.
It should suit your pocket. No more “50 Cents” celebrity style , which says that the cars and jewellery went back to the stores.
- Being YOU
It should be an extension of your personality, not a super-imposed structure.
- The Show Case
Your attire is a show case for your personal and professional identity. This is visual merchandizing at its best.
- THE ART AND SCIENCE
It is as simple as being yourself, and as complex as crafting an image for the world. Revel in it .
