Clothes are an important part of your business image, even in a small business. If you’re too casual, you may not seem professional to your customers, employees, or even yourself. If you’re overdressed, you may seem to be “trying too hard” when you meet with a more casually dressed prospect, or you may be needlessly uncomfortable for your daily tasks.
Where you do business, of course, makes a big difference in your clothing choices. I live in Silicon Valley, and if you showed up for a business meeting in a suit and tie, you’d look like an out-of-town insurance salesman. In Washington, D.C., on the other hand, you better not wear jeans for an important meeting.
How do you dress for success in your business?
