Dressing for Success The Basics

The clothes make the man or so the saying goes. Regardless of your gender, there is some truth to the cliché. If you want to be a success, you need to dress for it. Here are some basics to keep in mind. Dressing for success really begins with color. Choose two, basic, colors that you can start to build your clothing selection upon. Most people choose black, brown, grey, navy or beige, but you can decide upon whatever color you like the best (just keep it simple). After you have chosen two simple colors, you can then head out (don't forget that wallet!) to those glistening retail stores. Once you arrive inside of your favorite clothing store, stop for a moment and look around you. You will notice that there are two types of clothes hanging on racks and folded upon shelves - classic and trendy. For the most part, it is best to begin your wardrobe with some classic pieces, so skip those brightly colored, slightly bizarre, trendy looks. Instead, search for pin stripes, basic cuts, and straight lines. Now that you have chosen your everyday pieces, you can start searching for a bit of color. Although it is okay to incorporate a bit of color into your closet, stick to those previously mentioned classic looks. Do not choose colors that will wash out your skin tone, and try to stay away from colors that are loud and slightly strange. Instead, choose a lot of basic white shirts (technically, white isn't a color, but it is quite useful), and some classic reds, blues, and greens. Basic wardrobe planning does leave room for a bit of avante garde style, just don't spend too much on those trendier pieces.

If you cannot live without the latest style, search for these pieces on sales racks. Paying top dollar for a trend that will not last very long is somewhat useless. Instead, look for things that can really appeal to your fashionista side, but don't fork over a lot of money. You can easily find a lot of great new tops and bottoms on sale racks, you just have to do a bit of digging. Even if you have never been a great shopper before, applying these easy style tips will be easy. Basic wardrobe planning is really all about rounding out your entire fashion look, which should be a fun task. Take the time to decide upon those three basic colors, and then start shopping to your heart's content. You don't have to be a celebrity stylist in order to whip up the perfect wardrobe, all you need is a bit of encouragement and a lot of good old fashioned know how.
