Credibility Cues

The 3 most important “CREDIBILITY” cues you need to know to dress, feel and look your best.

We get to make so many choices in our lives…where we want to live, who we want to be, where we want to go and yes, most importantly (after all it is my forte), how we dress and express our uniqueness. 

Authenticity has become a popular word – the meaning that applies here is “true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character; is sincere and authentic with no pretensions.”

Authenticity is at the top of the list below of the most important credibility cues.  By the way, these cues (which are basic tools for dressing) not only effect people you come in contact with in all areas of your life, but what you wear actually effects how you feel, act, think and perform.  There is an actual science called “Enclothed Cognition,” referring to the effect your clothing has on you, the wearer), but that’s for another blog.  

As a clothier and wardrobe consultant, and in working with so many people, I see how complicated dressing can be. Take heart. There are 3 basic things you need to know to show the most authentic, powerful and confident person you can be.  It sounds too simple, but these 3 factors will ensure that you look and feel your best.  AND even if you don’t feel your best, if you take the time to put yourself together, it’s amazing the effect dressing well will have on you!  

So, this is what you need to know:

  • Color – Know the most complimentary colors for you – wearing colors that work best for your skin, eyes, hair, etc. creates visual HARMONY.
  • Body Type – Wearing the right cuts for your body will create BALANCE. 
  • Fashion Personality – The right style of clothing and accessories that work best for you will exude AUTHENTICITY.  

With harmony, balance and authenticity, how can you miss!  I would love to help you learn your personal credibility cues.  I encourage you to wear right colors, cuts and styles for you.  Why?  Because you deserve to have all the pieces of the puzzle in place – not perfectly in place, that would be boring, but almost.  It’s so much fun and so necessary to express who you are through your image, taste and style.

“While black tuxedos are a mainstay for men, there are also deep navy tuxedos and lush velvet jackets for the winter months,” says Linda Della Rocco, the tuxedo and custom suiting specialist at Van Cleve Bridal. Bingham agrees, saying, “I think a fun color could be fine for a black-tie wedding, as long as it adheres to the traditional tux cuts and elements.”

I like to look good, but I do not like to spend time shopping for clothes or analyzing what best suits me. Linda came to my house, looked at my wardrobe, asked questions, measured, and made suggestions. She returned with shirts, suits, pants, coats and ties in great quality, fitted, and designed for my taste.
