“If you seek a promotion or a salary raise, you will want to dress as if you already hold that position. The clothing which directly affects your income will become your regular, ongoing work attire.
“The more skin a woman reveals in the workplace, the fewer promotions, salary increases, and other benefits she reasonably can expect.” Linda Thomas AICI CIP
Positive first impressions are vital in the business environment. Sloppy or mismatched clothing can result in a negative first impression of sloppy and unorganized business ideas even before you start talking in the business meeting. With Kennedy Style, make sure you are giving a confident and successful first impression so that you will portray confidence and success in the workplace.
“Business Casual” or “Business Casualty”?
The dress codes in corporations have changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Are you unsure what is appropriate for Business Casual?

- Skirts that are too tight and/or too short
- Skirts with thigh-high slits

- Sleeveless tops or dresses (revealing a person’s undergarments)
- Halter tops, tube tops, or “spaghetti” straps worn without a jacket
- Cropped tops that reveal your navel, your waistline, or tattoos
- Shorts – any variation
- Capri’s – such as you might wear to the beach
