The saying goes...๐’…๐’“๐’†๐’”๐’” ๐’‡๐’๐’“ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‹๐’๐’ƒ ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’˜๐’‚๐’๐’•, ๐’๐’๐’• ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‹๐’๐’ƒ ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’‰๐’‚๐’—๐’†. Some might think this is outdated or overly-used advice, but I beg to differ. Fashion can be a powerful tool that gets your foot in the door for landing the job, connecting with new clients, or gaining new followers on Instagram.


While our culture continues trending towards informal WFH wear, I still believe there's a case to be made for committing to dressing up. It's a powerful tool to leverage and network within your online community.

Dressing well is a chance to make a positive impression on those who have no idea how good you are at your job.

Confidence is what helps carry you through relationship development. It gives you that extra fuel to put yourself out there and introduce yourself to strangers.


3. ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐œ๐ฅ๐จ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ฐ๐ž๐š๐ซ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ ๐จ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ซ ๐ฉ๐ž๐จ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ซ ๐ฐ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ฌ๐š๐ฒ. It subconsciously tells them to trust or distrust you. When you upgrade your wardrobe, wear professional pieces, and make a bold statement with your dressing, others will begin to trust you and want to connect with you.


Getting back to the basics of professional and intentional dressing will be your advantage when networking. When you think about it you'll never know when an opportunity will present itself to make lasting connections. It could even be in line at the grocery store...
