1. Less is more
When it comes to accessories, the golden rule is to declutter. Use a shoulder bag, not too big and not too small, so that your hands are free. If you must remove your jacket or coat, drape it over your left arm so that your right hand is free to shake hands when introduced to someone.
2. Stop ‘saving’ clothes
Do you feel like a million dollars in that skirt you splurged on? Then wear it. Stop saving clothes for ‘best’. Similarly, do not wear something that brings back unpleasant memories. It is impossible to feel confident and exude positivity in something that reminds you of a horrible experience.
3. Play six questions
Octavia Ephraim, the founder of OctaPear Image Consulting, suggests asking yourself the following:
4. Try a spot of colour therapy
5. Always remember the basics
We’d love to know what you wear when you need to make a good impression. Which colours and styles give you confidence when you need it?
