All this time we told you to dress like a professional. But, the truth of the matter is, if your boss likes to wear jeans to work for comfort, nobody in your office can point a finger at you for wearing jeans. Because, who is going to question the boss, right? Similarly, if you are the owner of the company, lead by example. Do not come to work in your pajamas even if you can, because not only does that set a casual work environment rather than a formal one, but your employees might just turn up to work wearing, belly bottom jeans and you will not be able to point a finger at them.

When it comes to being a professional, your attire will always speak ahead of you, even before you open your mouth. Nobody wants to do business with somebody who attends business meeting with a stained shirt and ragged shoes. Similarly, nobody wants to do business with somebody who wears all the jewellery in her wardrobe to business meeting. Always remember to dress right, but also remember to speak right, because your clothes might give a vague idea of your background, but it is ultimately your words that define you.
