An image consultant is someone who can give you advice how to find the best fashion styles and colours for you.
While it can be relatively easy for you to learn about fashion trends on your own, it is more difficult to be objective about your own appearance – sometimes you just want some professional advice. So why would someone seek the services of an image consultant?
A great time to see an image consultant is when you are looking to get a new job or have recently been hired for one. Starting a new job or even just interviewing for one is a very stressful time. In today’s fast-paced world first impressions count, and your competence, intelligence and reliability is judged within seconds.
Did you know that your visual appearance accounts for more than half the impression you give other people? This means that knowing how to manage your personal presentation so that you are quickly seen as effective and confident is as critical as any business skill on a resume.
Unfortunately, workplace fashion can be tricky, as different businesses have different needs. For instance, if you were to work in a clothing store there is a good chance that you would want to dress in the latest trendy clothing (probably from the store where you work), but if you worked in a law office, professional attire is a must.
These days though, it is not just business attire you need to worry about, but also business casual. Many workplaces now have ‘casual Friday’ where employees can dress down a little. While this can be a lot of fun, it can also be a minefield. Unless there is a specified theme, you are left on your own as to what you should wear. Every workplace will be different but you still need to keep in mind the type of business you work for and the standards that are generally accepted there.
Professional image consultants know how to help you dress for success, and also how to use body language, business etiquette and colour to your advantage. So if you’re interested in revamping your appearance for a new job or even just an interview, you may want to think about using the services of an image consultant.
Weddings are another occasion when many people seek professional assistance, and if they don’t, they should! Unfortunately, many do not realize that an image consultant can help with planning of a wedding. A qualified image consultant can not only help you find the perfect wedding dress to fit you and your body type, but they can also help you choose the perfect dresses for your bridesmaids.
Another reason to see an image consultant is simplythat you are tired of going shopping without having a clue what you’re looking for or what really suits you. Did you know that the average woman wastes over $4000 on clothes every few years? A image consultation will put an end to this once and for all.
As you can see, there are a number of reasons why you may want to turn to a professional image consultant. A qualified consultant will be able to show you exactly which colours and styles of clothing and accessories best suit you and how to dress for success, whatever the occasion and no matter what size, age or shape you are.
