Dress Up Day
Everyone loves casual Friday. If you work from home every day may feel like casual Friday. But some days, maybe on a day that you have the work blues, dressing up for work will make you a little happier. Even if you work from home or your office has a business casual policy, it always feels good to put a little extra effort into our appearance so we look our best.
I’m not saying you need to wear a suit or tie to work. If you normally dress in all black consider adding some color to your outfit. If you usually wear T-shirts consider wearing a button down. Your goal is to do a little pattern break in your normal work attire. Make it fun.
1. Get a new outfit if it’s in the budget – even if it’s new yoga pants and fun T-shirt.
2. Put on your nice jewelry.
3. Wear a little make-up or get a new lipstick color.
4. Try a new hair style.
5. Wear a new perfume or cologne.
Your co-workers and customers will notice the change. If you’re really ambitious follow the “dress for the job you want” motto.
If sprucing up your work appearance makes your smile, or adds a little more confidence, consider doing a dress up day every week.
