Neutral Density – Outfit of the (Mon)Day

Neutral Density – Outfit of the (Mon)Day

Dressing like an adult every day can be hard… Don’t know what to wear to work tomorrow? In photography, a neutral-density filter reduces or modifies the intensity of colors.  It gives you a large degree of control over certain aspects of your picture.  If this principle is applied to your wardrobe, you have a similar amount of control over your whole wardrobe.  What are the benefits to keeping a neutral wardrobe?  Here are just 3 of many: Everything matches.  Think of the color combinations: Navy with grey, white, khaki, black – they all look good together, no matter what combination you try.  You can spend less time worrying about what matches and more time on the important things in life…like coffee. You can mix and match so much that you can wear the pieces without anyone being the wiser.  If you wear a piece of clothing that is loud or noticeable, it will need to take a break.  A neutral piece however can be remixed into your wardrobe without anyone noticing. Never look ‘boring’.  You can invest in trendier and brighter pieces like scarves and jewelry.  A simple few colorful items can brighten up a wardrobe for every season.  Pastels for spring, bright for summer an rich autumn colors warm up fall. As a court reporter, attorney, paralegal or legal assistant, you can always be well-dressed and in style without spending tons of money on many different pieces, and more money on the important things…like coffee 😉     Article written by Michelle Cady-Cook.  She is the Director of Marketing and part owner of Cady Reporting (a WBENC company).  She is...

What Do I Wear to a Networking Event?

What Do I Wear to a Networking Event?

What message do you want to convey by your clothing at a networking event?  You want to tell other people that you are a successful, savvy professional.   There are several tips that can help you convey the exact message that you want. Wear something that makes you feel confident. When you feel confident, it just shines through. Wear one piece that is a “conversation starter” that invites people to easily open up a conversation with you. Lastly, keep it simple.  Yu have your own great style, don’t over think it too much!   Wear something that makes you feel confident.   You definitely want to make a great appearance.  Maybe it’s that great new pair of shoes or that scarf you just ordered that makes your skin glow.  Whatever it is, you know that it rocks your outfit.  When you feel great, you exude confidence. Confidence makes the networking part so much easier.   Wear a “conversation starter.”   People immediately assess each other as soon as they get into a room.  Intimidated? Don’t be! Use it to your advantage.  When someone looks at you, have them notice one unique piece in your outfit, it can make you stand out in a good way. Whether it’s a scarf, brooch, necklace or another piece, it is best if it has its own story to tell and holds some sentimental meaning to you. Don’t be afraid to share the story, it helps people get to know you and opens up doors to conversations…and conversations are what networking is all about!   KISS – Keep It Simple Silly!   You know...
