Determining the appropriate attire to wear for an important presentation, to a job interview, making a speech or just plain talking can be very daunting and difficult to decide. You need to carefully choose your attire to match the event. The way you dress speaks volumes about who you are as a person and as a business communicator. Let's face it, whether you believe it or not, clothes Do Talk. Whenever you enter a room or you meet someone for the very first time, it only takes a few seconds for people you has never met to form a lasting impression about you and your capabilities. You don't even have to utter a word; people would judge you one way if you're dressed in dashing black leather, another if you're squeezed into a lame and boring suit, and yet another if you're sporting a classic and elegant suit. Some of the perceptions people can form solely from your appearance are: Your professionalism, your level of sophistication, your intellectual capabilities and your credibility. Being well dressed in the corporate world can greatly influence not just perceptions, but also promotions. Regardless of who you really are, your clothes and body language are always the first to speak.
