First Impressions Count – Top to Toe!
In the last of a series of posts about creating the best first impression, trainee Sophie has given us a head to toe account to help you understand how to look & feel good throughout. So we finish the series with a view on creating a good impression down to your toes – with SHOES!
“It has been said that shoes are the most important part of an outfit. Shoes can tie an outfit together and with the right choice of shoes, you’ll feel more confident in showing your feet off”
“Wearing the right pair of shoes can fully transform your outfit. Have you ever considered that if you attend a job interview in a pair of scruffy shoes, it is most likely that you will not get a job? That may seem like common knowledge, but first impressions count, which is why it is important to carefully consider your shoes, accessories and overall appearance, particularly when doing something significant in regards to your career”
“It is not mandatory fashion to wear high heels every day to work, or maybe you feel good for it but if you’re running around a lot consider wearing block heels. They are much more easier and comfortable to wear and bang on trend this season. Although you should avoid wearing heels every day (even block heels) because in the long term, your joints, bones and muscles will suffer.”
“Perhaps flats would suit? Have you considered brogues or loafers?. They are flat, stylish, on trend and most of all comfort heaven! These shoes are so versatile and can be dressed up or worn down, depending where you wear them. Both shoes can also be worn with skin coloured tights or black tights if it’s not quite the weather to brave getting your legs out! The shoes are ideal to wear to a job interview or part of your work attire, for a professional, yet fashionable look, if you want an option other than a pair of your heels”
“It is an obvious, yet useful fact to remember that all first impressions count, whether you are meeting someone for the first time, or attending a job interview, people around you will always remember you from their first impression. This is why you should always take into consideration the things that matter the most regarding your appearance”
