Big Brother Takeover: Dressing for Success

Saturday, September 14, 2019

So, I'm currently in Chicago celebrating my big brother's 27th birthday and I decided to let him take over the blog for the day! FELLAS, this post is for you. Here are a few basic items that you absolutely must have in your closet — I’ll let Steve take over from here!

What do you need?

Dressing for success (and to impress) is a lot easier than you might think. Yes, I said EASIER! People tend to get stuck when they assume that flashy is better. Truth be told, the basics have and will always be the way, the truth, and the light of your wardrobe. In my opinion, your professional wardrobe only needs these 7 items:

-a navy blue suit
-a charcoal or dark grey suit
-a light blue shirt
-a white shirt
-a pair of light brown shoes
-a pair of black shoes
  -a variety of ties

The combinations here are endless and these staple items create numerous fail-proof outfits.

Why is it important?
Since high school, I’ve been told “Look good. Feel good. Play (or perform well).” Now, this was relevant to a sports team but the same applies to your everyday, professional life. If you look good you feel more confident, and if you’re confident you perform at your best. When you’re at your best, you're taken seriously. When you’re taken seriously, you're successful. When you’re successful you're happy.

What does dressing for success do for you?

What does it not do? Your confidence will rise as a result of you being intentional about looking and feeling your best despite what you do. Your personal and professional life, and even your alter ego (ya know, your inner BREyonce and Cardi Bre) will thank you. Studies have shown that people who are well dressed are viewed as leaders. So I leave you with this, dress like the person you want to be and the success you desire will follow.


Yours truly,
