Would you like others to listen to what you have to say?

Would you like to look and feel empowered?
Are you a young adult who answered YES to the above questions? Then, this article is for you.
Know that every piece of clothing and accessories are a fashion statement that says things about you. Accessories are anything that you wear or carry on you that are not clothing such as jewelry, bags, briefcase, purses, hat, scarves and eyeglasses. You are what you wear. The world makes judgements on you by the way you are dressed. The world will also treat you according to the ways you are dressed.
If you want to be taken seriously, you need to look at your verbal and non-verbal communication. The non-verbal communication is 80% of the total communication and the verbal is only 20%. Examples of non-verbal communication skills are:
Your tone of voice: too low to too loud.
The way you say things.
The clothes and accessories you wear speak loudly about you.
The colors you wear state your feeling and your character.
Your facial expressions, every body movements all say something about you.
I will talk about the non-verbal of clothing and colors. To know more, buy yourself a book on non-verbal communication.
If you change your non-verbal communication, you will change the way other people treat you. Change your non-verbal communication and change your life.
Get yourself some new clothes that are casual/business or business. Colors and style of clothing are very important. You want to wear business colors such as black, grays, blues, whites, greens browns, blues, and purples. For pants, skirts, jackets and dresses, wear any of these colors in the dark shades. Do not wear white for your pants, skirts and jackets. For blouses and shirt, you can wear any shades in all of these colors from light to dark colors. A white or ivory shirt or blouse will go with every color suits.
You must let go all the childhood items such as school bags with cartoon characters, hair accessories designed for little girls and anything else that is for little girls or boys. Let go all of your childhood talk. Lower your voice, it will help.
- If you don’t have any business garments, get yourself some.
- You do not have to spend a lot of money. You can find something reasonable at a second hand store if you are low on cash.
