A good point to remember in business etiquette is everyone should be treated with equal courtesy and respect. Business etiquette should be a give and take, to help each other when help is needed and have consideration for others. Good manners and business etiquette have always been based on common sense and thoughtfulness.
Successful business dressing is more than wearing the correct blue suit and white shirt or blouse to an interview. It requires ongoing, careful attention to a few simple rules of clothing and grooming. As rungs on the ladder of success get increasingly crowded, personal appearance takes on greater appearance. While books of advice on selecting the right color and cut of business clothing abound, attending to a few minor details can polish a person’s image.
The way you dress speaks volumes about who you are as a person and as a business communicator. Let's face it, clothes talk. Whenever you enter a room for the first time, it takes only a few seconds for people you've never met to form perceptions about you and your abilities. You don't have to utter a word; people peg you one way if you're dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, slacks and a sports coat, and yet another if you're wearing a bow tie and seersucker suit. Regardless of who you really are, your clothes and body language always speak first.
