Do you have a personal brand? Creating a personal brand gives you an edge and helps you to stand out in the workplace. Plus, knowing your style and what looks best on you makes it easier to dress each morning!
From the moment people see you, they already have made up their mind about who you are as a person. In a world when you only have one chance to make a good first impression, why would you let your clothes hold you back?
Define Your Personal Brand in 3 Steps
Figuring out who you are and attempting to present it to the world is not an easy task. You have to sit down and really think about who you are and who your brand is deep down to its core. Is your brand fun and outgoing or no nonsense and straight to the point? How can you use your clothes to represent that brand and make you stand out from the crowd?
First, pick three words that define your brand. Second, pick three colors that bring you joy. Third, pick three celebrities whose style you admire. Take a look at your answers, and see what ideas you can come up with to help stand out from the crowd! For example, if you wear a lot of neutrals but describe yourself as cheerful and energetic, it might be time to add some bright colors and patterns into your wardrobe.
