Are your closet conundrums affecting your climb on the corporate ladder?

A recent Robert Half study reveals that 80% of managers feel clothing choice affects a person's chance of being promoted.

With office dress codes ranging from leggings to suit jackets, the question remains: WHAT TO WEAR?

But let's be honest, your clothes aren't the real issue here. It's the thing behind the thing. Your choice of wear is the visual representation of your credibility, trustworthiness and confidence.

If you feel like you are in the 'worst dressed' category at work, try:

✔︎ A fashion service: Check out Stitch Fix (an online personal styling service) or Armoire (a clothing rental service) to try new styles.

✔︎ A coach: If you are local to Indianapolis, connect with Nicole Blair Wear, a personal brand and stylist expert.

How do you see this play out in your professional world? What resources do you recommend?
