Attire is often dictated by the industry, culture of the organization and the nature of the work that you perform. It is important no matter what career you pursue that you create a business wardrobe. Even in very casual environments there may come a time when you will need to wear a business suit or formal business attire. Thinking about your business wardrobe ahead of time will prevent you from being caught off guard.
Sometimes as a student disposable income is not easy to acquire, yet dressing for the part that you want will ultimately increase your ability to generate additional income. Whatever it is you are earning at the moment remember to put aside a small portion each time you get paid to create a business dress fund. Look for sales, thrift stores and lay-away options in stores to maximize your dollars. Seek out classic and conservative pieces that will last for more than a season. An investment in your wardrobe is an investment in your professional development, the sooner you begin the sooner you will reap the rewards.
