Four minutes: this is the time we have on average to leave a positive or negative image during a first meeting.

At that moment, 55% of attention is focused on your appearance, 38% on the tone of your voice, and only 7% on the substance of your speech. We are human beings, and despite our efforts to go beyond appearances, we always react first with our emotions and our preconceptions.

Style is therefore something to be taken seriously, independently of fashion, which is too changeable and not always good advice.

Not to mention the suit / shirt / tie ensemble, a clean outfit shows a certain respect for the person you're talking to, whether it's a colleague or a client. Although not all companies place the same importance on appearance, it is important to keep in mind that every environment has its dress codes. Knowing them and playing with them allows you to integrate better. In certain fields, such as fashion, luxury, communication and public relations, the ability to project an image in line with that of one's company constitutes a fundamental skill.

Although not all companies place the same importance on appearance, it is important to keep in mind that every environment has its dress codes.

Our advice: if you don't really adhere to the general style of your company and no uniform is imposed, opt for timeless pieces, with simple but well-made cuts, made from beautiful materials and which will last over time . This type of clothing is always worth the investment.

Beyond just clothing, pay special attention to your overall appearance. Having a beard or slightly long hair does not mean that you do not take care of yourself, as long as it is cut precisely.
