As an engineering student I got number of opportunities to meet with high profile people. I still remembered, I was attending Mr Ramesh Chandak and team – Microsoft’s’ senior head developer. Well, it was our responsibility to make a visit of our city as they specially come for organising workshop. After finishing the workshop, we took him for some temple visit. And, I was surprised when he asked some time to get ready. Yeah, all of them carried orange color printed kurta (in which om namah shivay is written) which were strongly reflecting India’s cultures and traditions. It was hard to control laughter but somehow I managed. But, he was good enough to read facial expression so he said – “dress to impress”.
Mr. Chandak further continued – Whether or not you believe but most of the people judge you on the basis of dressing sense. Even, we also notice dressing sense because we can’t change skin tones, and other physical attributes. He said, what you will feel if one is going to attend prom nights with typical traditional attires or your friend is going to attend formal dinner or interview/workshop with backless or pop over dress. How will it impact on you? Dress and person is same but it is matter of occasion where we need to carry. Therefore, it is always advised to dress to impress.
At that time I was not mature enough to understand such dressing sense concepts. More specific, I was choosy while selecting the dresses that was the reason I was only have jeans and few different style tops.
But, as he was on big profile so I can trust on her concept like dress to impress. From that day, I started investing in all kind of dress. And that was the turning point. I did not know how but after changing wardrobe I was inviting in more parties, get to gathers and events. Even I have experienced, choosing the right attire for any occasion is the matter of good manners.
Almost all of us know that first impression is last impression. But, few among us know that it only takes four to thirty seconds to judge a new person we meet. It counts dressing sense, smile, and the way they started talking no matter whether it is through facial expressions or communicate only through gestures.
Also some blogs says that attires are responsible for 95% of first expression. So, start dressing for what you want and achieve in life, where you are going and what you want to be addressed. Well, if I summarized then dress to impress.
