Start your day the Obama way, Dress for Success. Barack Obama was reported as saying that because he has so many important decisions to make on a daily basis, he does not want to have make to decisions about clothes. His wardrobe is therefore planned for the week, based on which meetings he is attending, where he may be travelling, and what activities he may be taking part in.

Decisions about what to wear for each occasion are planned ahead hence saving time and decision making each day.

Having a capsule wardrobe that truly reflects your business and lifestyle makes this much easier to dress for success. Knowing the personal brand you want to reflect makes building a capsule wardrobe easier.

If you want to dress for success start by planning your wardrobe week as this can help identify any gaps in your wardrobe so that next time you go shopping for clothes you know exactly what you need instead of choosing items that may not be necessary and may end up never being worn.

  • So start by planning your wardrobe at the start of the week.
  • What appointments and meetings do you have?
  • Who are you seeing?
  • How will you be travelling to appointments?
  • What is the weather forecast for the week?
  • What accessories will you need?
  • Is everything you need for the week cleaned and laundered?


Remember, for clothes to last longer, don’t wear the same items or shoes the very next day, allow them breathe.

Are you having to switch from business to social for an evening event?

Then remember to take this into account and plan both outfits ahead of time, but with a perfectly created capsule wardrobe you should have no issues construct a outfit that both matches the event and your own personal style .
