First Impressions Count: The Business Value of Dressing for Success

Your clothes are a reflection of your personality, so if you want to leave a good first impression, you need to look the part. David K. Williams writes an article for Forbes with the input of his daughter and fashion stylist Lindsey Shores about how and why clothes matter. For starters, it has been statistically demonstrated that dressing well increases income, but beyond facts and figures, Shores cites the idea that a man in a well-tailored suit will always command more respect than some schlub off the street.

Your own confidence increases when you know you are presenting the best possible You to the rest of your colleagues.
