Dress Code Communication
Business has developed a wide variety of tools and methods for efficient communication, however we don’t always consider our appearance as a key part of how we communicate even though communication begins long before we start talking. Often the way we look rather than what we say creates the first impression that people have of us, this can have a huge impact on what we are trying to communicate and how it is received.
Business dress code is being replaced by dress communication. The key difference between these two terms is that dress code is a set of standard rules which take no account of a specific person’s need for self-expression. By contrast, dress communication is based on originality, personalization and creativity, which are the things that make us stand out and can make our communication even more efficient to relevant audiences.
Current fashions make it possible to express one’s life philosophy by the way they look even under the most conservative dress code. Why is this important? It increases our confidence in ourselves and allows us to demonstrate our own personality through how we dress. On average a person sees his or her reflection in a mirror, window, shop window or smartphone screen at around 60 times a day. When we feel confident, we are more creative and are more effective in how we communicate.
