Whether you’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company and are presenting a state-of-the-company message to your shareholders, a community volunteer attending a Board of Trustees meeting of your alma mater, or appearing in front of your top client to discuss their financial portfolio, you want to exude confidence, professionalism, and cordiality.
Where in your closet do you turn to find that outfit that will give you self-assurance in your presentation? Like most professional women, you’ll probably head to the section of your closet where you’ll find traditional black, navy, or brown suits. While nothing is wrong with that and, by all accounts, is probably what your institutional relations person might suggest, you may need to change your mindset and become that “Pop of Color in a Room Full of Dark Suits.”
When I say, “room full of dark suits,” I think you know what I’m referring to – males who have dominated top corporate, academic, health care, etc. positions in the past and continue to do so now even though women are making headway.
Allow yourself to be the “pop of color.” Step outside your comfort zone when deciding what to wear in those prime-time situations and on a day-to-day basis. Clothing has a powerful impact on how we feel and present ourselves, and by creating outfits that make you feel confident and comfortable, you’ll be able to show up as your best self and make an everlasting impression.
Venture outside the everyday, boring, and typical dark suit, add some color. I’m not saying be a neon light or clown. Being tasteful is a requirement. By stepping outside the norm, you’re revealing self-confidence and worthiness of your position. You’re commanding the attention and respect of your audience.
Feel comfortable and confident about your appearance.
By deviating from the normal “dark suit,” you’ll carry yourself like the leader, professional, and woman you are among that room full of dark suits. Stand up, be seen, and be heard. You earned it. Start dressing like the next-level self you are.
