Tom Ford, the former creative director for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, said it best. “Dressing well is a form of good manners.”
If this statement is true, we can assume dressing well equates to good manners. We can further assert that good manners are always in style. From these conclusions doesn’t it logically follow that dressing well is always in style? We believe this is the case.
Logic analogies notwithstanding, judgments about intelligence, competency, skills, and abilities are made in a split second. These assessments are largely based on appearance. Appearance stems from how we dress. As such, dressing well is not only indicative of good manners but also a way to project the most compelling representation of ourselves. Dress well, be stylish and you’re well on your way to demonstrating exemplary etiquette.
