Can Wearing a Uniform Help you get ahead?

Posted on

Have you ever heard somebody say, “dress to impress” or “dress for success”?

You might have even heard them say “dress for the job you want, not the job you have”. There are countless reasons for why catch phrases like these exist. Great uniforms boost your mood, self-confidence, and productivity. However, in saying that, it all comes down to how you feel in your uniform, making it essential that you select the right garments to match your desired look.

For example, a suit and tie may be perfect if you are looking for success in your next big sales pitch. However, that same suit may also make you feel extremely uncomfortable in your casual relaxed office environment.

So, ‘can wearing a uniform help you get ahead’?

Yes! It can! But its extremely circumstantial.

Bolton’s have laid out 3 key strategies that will help you feel confident every single day at work!

1. Make sure your clothing fits and is comfortable.

If you’ve ever worn clothing that doesn’t fit just quite right, then you understand what we’re referring to. It’s uncomfortable and can make you feel uneasy about your day. Causing you to have feelings of embarrassment, awkwardness and nervousness.

3. Be true to yourself, everyday!

Make sure that you are wearing something that you would typically go for. If you wouldn’t typically wear pants, then don’t. You won’t feel comfortable all day, and this will cause a lack of confidence in your attitude at work.

Same goes for suits! The most important part of your uniform is that you feel comfortable and confident in it. So wear clothing that fits, makes you stand out from the rest and makes you feel comfortable.
