Would you have guessed that wearing well-tailored dresses can help give you that upper edge you need in that big interview you have coming up?
Or that it can cause your coworkers to view you in a better light?
According to a study posted in the Journal of Business Research, the difference in how you dress can drastically change how you are viewed by others, especially in a work setting. In this particular study, researchers selected a group of more than 150 observers and showed them the same woman in the same scenario wearing different clothing (high quality with an identifiable brand, clothing with a cheap brand, and clothing with no brand).
The observers were also shown a video of the same woman interviewing for a job wearing the different clothing sets, and were asked to rate the woman on how capable they were for the job and how much they should be paid.
As observed in the study, researchers determined that wearing more elegant clothing had a direct impact on the observer’s perception of the interviewee’s attractiveness, which lent toward their credibility in the interview. Since the applicant was perceived as more attractive and likely to succeed, they were given the job more often. On top of this, it was deemed fitting that the well-dressed woman should get paid more than the others, even though it was the same exact person. The main takeaway: Whether you want to look good on a date or are interviewing for that dream job you always wanted, dressing in finely crafted clothing can make all the difference in helping deliver the result you want to achieve.
