Banalities - or not?
Actually, there are many tips on fashion banality should you think - or not, if you look at the above example of the graphic designer?
By the way, she almost got the job because the qualifications were top. In the end, it failed only because she was looking for a full-time job. The presentation in the job, however, the plant manager would also be sincerely do not care: "Only at the job interview, but a certain form must be maintained."
Follow the dress code
And that is exactly the point of such clothing tips: the bosses in spe or the staffers want to see that one can also be in the customer contact and also other behave and certain practices of the industry. Therefore, it is also important to pay attention to the customary dresscode.
Incidentally, this can also consist of jeans and sneakers, as is customary in the Berlin Internet scene. In a trouser suit you would simply be overdressed - that was Miram Meckel, too. Professorin and friend of Anne Will, as she gave a speech at the re: publica 2012.
Job and clothes must fit
For the reason, I've been giving lectures on blogs and the Internet, in jeans. For me anyway the most practical business garment, wrinkle-free and even with stain still chic.
Accordingly, one should not be too flexible in my opinion: Will Mann really in one Company work, in which tie obligation prevails, if one otherwise abhors the parts? Probably it does not fit in other places then ....
Work-life balance in fashion
In my opinion this is the biggest problem of so-called business clothes: that is not enough to be practiced. On work-life balance in fashion.
For example, high-heeled shoes and costumes for several hours of train travel to appointments or hours-long trade fair visits simply not practical: far too big is the risk that the clothes get something, the paragraph kinks, etc. - not to mention the comfort times.
And just as little is taken into account in such clothing tips that the lifestyle of women has changed significantly: Who today has time to move between children, job and various evening events five times a day? Usually one wears the same clothes all day long. The noble T-shirt under the blazer instead of the blouse is already becoming a must-have: Wrinkle-free and easy to change, if there is a stain on it.
What is your business style?
I do not like jeans and sneakers at all, quite the opposite, but there is far too little a nice and practical business mode that adapts to the new lifestyle of women.
Business fashion does not have to be reputable, stuffy or boring - that also works differently - eg flip-flops for trouser suits or pinstripes on bicycles. Yes, you can even spice up the most boring pinstripes with a few accessories. Because the interest in the reader is obviously there!
Mobile office in stylish
And then that: When I met with Robindro Ullah for an interview a few days ago, spontaneously this photo motive came up. The clothes themselves are not particularly original, except perhaps for the beige-colored, waffle tie. But this accessory combination: The sporty sunglasses, the bicycle clip in the pants - and the rental bike ... And no, that's not meant ironically, I thought it looked really cool in the combination.
Not to mention, by the way, the roll-case with pull-out handle that you can strap on such a bike comfortably (unlike a normal luggage rack ...). Incidentally, the suitcase is not luggage, but Robindro Ullah's mobile office, which he can carry so much more conveniently through the area than in a normal laptop bag. Personally, I think all in all that this is a successful style.
How do you see it? Which clothes do you prefer in your job?
