Such a fantastic audience and turn out to my talk all about how you can use #fashionpsychology to dress your best self at work!

“For many years, we were taught to adopt ’workplace personas’ – to leave our true selves at the door and become the perfect boss or the ideal colleague. But now, for many of us, this has been flipped on its head, with ‘authenticity’ quickly becoming the new buzzword in many workplaces. This leaves us with a conundrum: how can we dress for work in a way that feels authentic but still manages to say all the right things to our colleagues?

To solve this dilemma, we called on the power of fashion psychology. Speaking on the Work Life with Google stage at Stylist Live, Shakaila Forbes-Bell, the founder and editor-in-chief of Fashion is Psychology and author of Big Dress Energy, gave her advice for dressing for success as our true selves at work.”
