“I’m Serious About Your Money, Casual About My Look”
Feb 4 2013

There was an article in the Wall St. Journal titled, “I’m Serious About Your Money, Casual about My Look,” dated December 17, 2012, which discusses the widely differing dress codes in the offices of financial advisers. Some professionals were pushing the limits in their casual attire. The article quotes a NYC based adviser: “If you dress professionally, people will take you seriously. Even if your clients are casual, you’re there on a serious matter.” This is just some food for thought.

You should always dress in a manner appropriate for the culture of your office and your profession. If you are in tech, advertising, banking or law, for example, your attire will reflect your office culture and dress code and, perhaps, the clients you will be meeting that day. Although you may prefer casual, creative or edgy over tailored, I have basic mantra when it comes to your career image: When in doubt about your style, error on the conservative side toward the more professional.
