My very first blog post. Who even am I? 🙂

Well, to get me to sit down and write this at all, it had to be about something I had genuine interest in and felt was worthwhile enough to share. This blog post is about why fashion is so important. Why I care about how I dress. Why I put so much time and effort into my page for you and why you too should care about how you dress, particularly how you dress for work.

When it comes to work wear, the best motto I have heard is:

‘Dress right. You can’t afford not to.’

Think about this for a second.

You will never have a negative reaction to dressing appropriately and stylishly in the workplace, it can only be a positive thing. When they say, ‘Dress for the job you want’, there actually is a lot of psychology behind that. When you dress well, it helps you to think that you are important and as a result, you are important. The more respect you have for yourself the more respect others will have for you. Without a doubt, how you look on the outside affects how you feel on the inside. You should use clothing as a tool to lift your spirits and build confidence. Tell me you don’t feel happier and more confident when you feel you look well?

I am 100 percent more confident, more outgoing, willing to talk to more people, happier when I feel I am well dressed.

Sure, life isn’t all about looks, there are more pressing and important matters to attend to and you can label some as vain and conceited-they simply care too much about how they look. But remember, your appearance talks and first impressions do matter. This is so important in whatever work you undertake.

Of course, it would be a beautiful world if people saw peoples intellect and kindness first and not appearance but unfortunately, that is not reality. People do evaluate you based on your appearance. It is the first thing people see. People look at a person and make a quick judgement, and then treat them according to that judgement for the duration of that interaction. If you are dressed well it says you are confident, presentable, prosperous, important, dependable.

I was in the shop the other day and went to pick up some strawberries. One bunch were clean and bright, presented in a cute little wicker basket. The other bunch were dirty and dull and in a plain plastic container. There wasn’t much difference in the price and I was assured by the shop keeper that both tasted the same. Which do you think I chose?
Packaging and presentation matter.

I know it can be hard if you have children, are so busy etc. You may think, I don’t have time to eat breakfast in the morning, never mind pick out an outfit. But that is hopefully where 925style can help, providing full work wear outfits for you to shop at affordable prices.

At the end of the day, everyone wants to feel confident, empowered, outgoing, important. My hope is that this page will help you all feel like this.

So, the next time you think this is a frivolous fashion blog, look again! It might actually be more important than you think.
