Dressing appropriately is a form of good manners. It shows your Client that you respect his presence. Here are some simple tips on how to look smart in front of your Client.
1. Dress smart
Dressing smart is the way to go. Wear polo or collared shirt, long pants and closed shoes. Do not wear shorts, slippers or sando as this will make you look unprofessional. Do not wear rugged shirt or pants. Treat your Client as if you he/she is your date.
2. Be neat
Wear clothes and pants that are neat and properly pressed. Do not wear dirty and crumpled shirt. Stay away from clothes with holes. Comb your hair and present yourself smartly, as if you are ready to tackle whatever is ahead. And please remove the hair inside your nose that is sticking out!
3. Not too formal
Wearing suit and tie might be too much for your Clients. It might intimidate them or make them think that you are not approachable and will outsmart them. Dress in a way that your Clients will be comfortable approaching you. Also, suit and tie are very uncomfortable and hot, and it will affect your actions and emotions during your conversation with the Client.
4. Proper posture
Always keep in mind to stand or sit tall. Never lean or slouch as it will show your Client that you are bored or uninterested or tired. You must look ready all the time, and proper posture can transcend this. Don't put your hands inside your pockets. Act confident and use your hands to expound your speech.
