Dress for Success: From Your First Job to Your First Promotion

It takes time to discover your style. You might be following an influencer online or taking your cue from a friend who seems to look good in everything. As you dabble with one look or another, you’ll find it becomes easier to fall into a style that fits your personality and your lifestyle. You can do so by looking at where you are in life.

Whether you’re a fresh graduate looking for a job or you’ve just been promoted, you can alter your style to dress the part and discover your distinct style.
