Recently I saw a beautiful medical doctor interviewed on a daytime talk show on contraceptive aids, the need for women to be aware of their options and use them wisely. She wore an ultra-trendy black top with short sleeves and delicate lace around the hemline. Now as you are well aware, you cannot NOT communicate. This intelligent female doctor, dressed as cutesy and girly as she was, belied her knowledge, reduced her credibility and looked like a little girl on national television.
Consider the message you are sending with your clothing and be sure to take care when wearing trendy ruffles, lace and puff sleeves. Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against feminine ruffles, lace or puff sleeves. They are great choices for the evening when you want to look and appear feminine with your sweetheart. But let’s face it — these trends do not belong in the boardroom or on national television.
When you get dressed in the morning, consider the occasion, your roles and goals, as well as who will see you throughout your day, then dress appropriately.
