First impressions are everything, the way you dress shows the person you are meeting how you’re feeling and if you care to be meeting them. Like they say, first impressions are everything.

It is important to dress for the occasion. An excellent example of this is the outfit you would wear when attending an interview or business meeting. Although it is important to show who you are as a person it is also important to show the employer that you are serious about working within the company and that you are professional. Wearing gym gear for example would not be an acceptable business/interview attire as it shows you are careless about attending and would rather be working out. An acceptable outfit would consist of a shirt or blouse with tailored skirt, trousers, a blazer or cardigan. One could also decide on a tailored dress that is modest and professional. Shoes should also look quite simple but professional a great example of this would be a loather or low heel pumps. You can find many of these items on the high street and online for affordable prices! ‘Primark’ and ‘New Look’ do a wide range of both Men’s and Women’s formal clothing in a range of sizes for affordable prices! This is a very respectful approach to a business career situation.

As students, we are at the age when dating begins to approach, and many people may be asked out on a first date! Although this may seem daunting, it is important to dress to impress and a big part of that is also related to your personality so it’s great to dress in what you’re comfortable in. If you are very feminine, you could try a dress with some pumps or heels-or turn it into a casual look and add some trainers or ‘Converse’. Jeans and a nice top are a great option if you are more comfortable in that type of outfit- great for both genders! Many of these pieces are available on the high street and are very affordable. Within fashion, price and store is not important, if you are comfortable and confident in what you’re wearing!

First impressions in fashion are so important to show who you are as a person and are highly encouraged!
