I am often asked about the rules…..
You know ‘the rules’….”It was so much easier when we all just wore suits”.
So often invitations come with ‘Lounge Suit’, or ‘Smart Casual’, and it often throws them into a bit of a tizzy…And not really feeling comfortable with ones outfit, can affect your confidence. Especially if you are meeting new people and feel that you got the remit wrong!
Ahead of the Business Academy day for MyFaceMyBody, Stephen Handisides and I talked through his look for the day and we decided smart but casual. It was a seminar day with lots of interacting. Stephen was filmed throughout and we wanted to look approachable and professional but still relaxed. We decided the Prince of Wales which is such a great pattern, in an 11 oz British milled twill, accompanied by flat black Loro Piana for the trousers, with a crisp white shirt would achieve the desired look – perfectly….
The day was brimming with great Business tips, speakers such as Nadine Rogers from St James Wealth who gave a superb address. Also the Seesaw Gang who delivered a relaxed overview helping to make many aspects of Social Media more accessible to us. Bit size chunks, kind of Social Media for dummies….so many great ideas and contacts were taken from the day. We are looking forward to next one, where I will be delivering an overview of ‘ First Impressions & Image’…
Until next time….
