It is said that how we look on the outside is how we feel on the inside. Our personality is also reflected in the way we dress for occasions. Our attire is an expression and extension of our lifestyle. When we attend functions or events, what we wear is a reflection of our professionalism. Having the right wardrobe is in itself an image building and branding strategy. It is just as important and similar to other business plans and developments. So how do we go about selecting that perfect look and attire when we need to attend an important event? Every event or function is different. First of all, look at the theme of the event. Is there a dress code? Will you be attending the event alone or with someone else? Sometimes the dress code is indicated in the invitation or RSVP card. An event can be casual, a Black Tie affair, a Business event, a themed event or even a celebrative event.
