When it comes to our appearance, we naturally take some manner of pride in our we look. After all, how we look says a lot about us. Therefore, we need to do what we can to look our best, especially when meeting new people. Our appearance acts as a sort of micro first impression. Almost like our first impression’s first impression, if you will. So, it pays to put in the extra effort to look your best so that all your conversations start out on the right foot. Here are some tips.
First and foremost, you’re going to want to dress for success. You’re going to want to avoid bargain bin Wal Mart graphic tees, for starters, as these popular items are bottom of the barrel in terms of fashion. They get the job done, but they lack style and substance. Instead, try something a little classier, like the offerings of Neiman Marcus. This will show the people you meet that you care about your appearance, and that, alone, says more than you can imagine. It means that you’re willing to work hard to get what you want, and it means that you take care of yourself, just to name a few.
Speaking of taking care of yourself, you’re also going to want to maintain good hygiene and grooming. It should go without saying, but here we are. You need to keep clean and tidy in order to maintain a respectable appearance and, with it, essence. So, make sure to bathe nightly, wear deodorant, brush your teeth, the works. As for grooming, that’s more subjective, but the basics go like this: you want your hair to look deliberate, for starters. If you look like you lost a fight with a vacuum cleaner, you’re doing it wrong. Several stray hairs going in all directions is a bad look, as well. A beard, if you have one, can be big and bushy, but make sure it’s evenly trimmed.
