#StudentSA – Dressing for success

Liezl Hesketh in #StudentSA 


Image is the ultimate appealer to all Success journeys. How you dress is how you will be perceived. As the reputable designer and brand founder, Tom Ford once shared: “Dressing well is a form of good manners“, it is quiet evident that clothing and grooming has more power to lasting impressions than your curriculum vitae ever could.

“You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.” – Zig Ziglar

Unfortunately the youth tend to overlook the importance of appearance and grooming. Maybe not entirely so, but definitely lack the emphasis on maintaining a refined look, one fitting to the work environment. The continuous evolution of fashion and trends means that you need to be on top of your game to always look right and relevant.

On our Wednesday twitter chat, we  discussed  “Dressing For Success” and these were comments from the students:



Many students had amazing ideas on dressing for success and then there were some that needed help. For those in the latter category, check out Classy Cubicle – they have great tips on dressing for success. Internally, we are lucky to have fashionista Khumo Selooa to help TheRoomLink team on dressing for success.  Lucky us!
