Meeting the Moment and Dressing for the Occasion

What do I have to wear? What do I get to wear! The way you present yourself matters. From posture and gesture to the quality of a laugh to the clothing that makes you feel comfortable in the situation, your image is something you are creating all the time. Approached as an opportunity there is so much you can do to set yourself up for success in any situation. Knowing when to notch it up and when to notch it down is part of making intelligent choices in an increasingly casual and informal world. Weather you are trying to decipher a dress code cue on an invitation, getting ready for an important Zoom meeting or finding the right sandal for a beach party, we've got you covered.
