If there is one thing we noticed, it’s that dressing for success does have an impact on our overall performance. Studies indicate that dressing well or for success means that you are motivated to be doing the task you’re assigned for. It says that you care about your profession and are prepared for it. Jeff Vrabel, writer of the article “Does Dressing for Success Really Work?” on Success Magazine, writes about how dressing well impacted him versus working from home. While working from home has its benefits of being able to dress however and get work done, dressing professionally by any means necessary helps us establish a tone. “At Eagle Vision Enterprise, we always instill a dress well, get the best attitude. Without dressing for the role you want, how can you expect to get it?,” asks Rogers Gonzalez, managing director of Eagle Vision Enterprise Inc.
Vrabel on this topic of dressing well writes, “‘If I come to work in yoga pants, the perception might be that I’m laid-back and casual, so maybe my work ethic is, too. I want to be able to set a tone, establish myself as a promotable player.’ Frankly, I have little experience in this field. So I set out to see whether the clothes made the man by donning a suit daily, at least for a workweek. I’d wear it to my usual travels: kindergarten drop-off, the coffee shop where I work, dentist appointments, the pizza place where I take my sons on Tuesdays, my standing lunch with my buddy Bradshaw. The idea was to gauge the effects of the visual, to see how a suit affected other people’s impressions of me and—more important—my impression of myself.”
“The fact is that dressing for a particular role you want works. If you’re in the business field, then dressing for it is important. You cannot show up to a meeting in jeans and a t-shirt. Similarly, anything we do has a pressing tone to it. So we believe that an impression does set the tone for what we do,” says Rogers Gonzalez of Eagle Vision Enterprise Inc. The most important thing to remember is no matter what just dress your best, what you perceive as best for a situation and according to that guideline. Not only does it help you feel good, but it enables you to achieve things confidently.
