Refresh your work wardrobe in 2017

Your first impression when meeting someone is golden. In this society, as much as we try to avoid it, people automatically judge you on your appearance, whether you’re in line for a prospective job or meeting new people socially.

You have the power to influence the way in which people view you by presenting yourself in an optimal way to maximise your impact when meeting others. Taking control of your visual impact can enable you to project your desired personal brand – and create strong Personal Impact Power.

The simplest way to magnify your personal impact power in the work place is to have these key wardrobe essentials, which should be tailored to your individual style:
