Dress the Part and Put Your Best Foot Forward at Your New Job - Brett Clawson - Blog

Dress the Part and Put Your Best Foot Forward at Your New Job

When we start a new job, we hope to start off on the right foot. Making a good impression and showing that you are ready for whatever comes your way sends the signal that you were truly the right hire. Unknowingly, you may sabotage that signal if your appearance sends the signal that you don’t care. Make sure that you don’t fall into that camp and remind them that they hired the right person with these tips on dressing the part.


Shoes can be a component of the dress code that people pay the least attention to but they are just as important as pants and tops. Matching your shoes to the level of professionalism at the office is key to your success, as this is an area where people often find themselves underdressed. The level of formality at your office should be reflected in your shoes. If your office leans toward flats, high heels and dress shoes, you certainly do not want to show up in old sneakers. Even for offices that are casual in their dress code, don’t look like a slacker with old, worn-out shoes. Instead opt for a fashionable pair of leather sneakers to show that you pay attention to the finest detail.


Wrinkly clothing is a sure-fire way to show that you don’t care or that you pay little attention to detail. By not ironing your clothes that need to be ironed, you look like you rolled out of bed. While it is normal to have your clothes wrinkle a bit from your commute, these are often minimal. Don’t let wrinkles get in the way of presenting yourself as a professional. To avoid looking like you wore the outfit last night, consider taking a moment to iron your clothes or choosing wrinkle-free fabrics that you immediately remove from the dryer when done. This will ensure that you give the air of professionalism when you show up in the office looking fresh and clean.

Ill-Fitting Clothes

A lot of issues around ill-fitting clothes have been addressed when it comes to women wearing too tight or short of ensembles, but not enough attention has been brought to ill-fitting clothes that may sag or be too roomy. Many people will swing to the opposite side of the spectrum to ensure that their clothes aren’t snug or to hide areas of their body that they may be uncomfortable with; however, this can actually do you a disservice. By opting for clothing that doesn’t fit properly, this can signal a frumpy and unprepared look. Consider opting for a fitted suit or work clothing that fits securely without restricting or making you feel uncomfortable so that your colleagues will know you’re someone to be taken seriously.


The use of makeup in the office has been thought to be a fickle thing. Makeup has been speculated to give women a leg up and be taken seriously in the office, but too much of it is counterproductive. It is important to understand the balance between professional makeup and too much. If you aren’t comfortable with makeup, opt for less than more and use it as a way to highlight your natural beauty. Showing up with a full face of dramatic makeup will be sure to backfire.


There is nothing worse than that person who you can smell from a mile away due to their scent use. The use of fragrances in the office is an easy mistake that people can make. You can become unaware of your own smells and nose blind to your own scent. Because of this, you may not be the best judge of the appropriate use of scents. Avoid being the person everyone gags around and use very little fragrance, if any when you start your job.

It can be very easy to go wrong in your wardrobe when embracing the dress code of a new job; however, this is a critical factor in your professionalism at the workplace. With a few tips and tricks, you can be sure to easily navigate your new office culture and be the person your team was thrilled that they hired.
