5 Secrets to a Winning First Impression Article

Are you someone that is full of energy or are you usually exhausted?  Are you someone who often has a negative attitude about life and very judgmental of others or are you hopeful and open-minded about the future and new opportunities?

How do you want the world to EXPERIENCE YOU?

It all starts with a first impression! Some believe you can tell a lot about a person in the first 30 seconds of meeting. I say within the first 5 seconds, you can actually draw a conclusion about a person by the way they dress and the energy they present. It may not be an accurate conclusion, but it definitely gives a small indication of a person’s disposition.

Whether you know it or not, your clothing says a lot about how you may feel about yourself. On many occasions, sweats and jumpsuits are my wardrobe of choice when I’m out running errands and shopping for the week because I want to be comfortable. But, I’ve also learned how to be comfortable in professional attire that says, “I value my appearance. I take our meeting seriously and I’m excited to be here.”

I’ve learned to include my personality in my wardrobe and I encourage you to do the same. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Accentuate your natural beauty. If you wear makeup, make sure it highlights your natural beauty and doesn’t stand out all by itself taking all the attention away from your beautiful eyes that only need a little mascara or your lips that can use a light-colored gloss. If your personality screams excitement, then have fun with makeup, but be mindful of your environment. A job interviewer will expect to see a polished look with minimal makeup.
  2. Clean clothing on a clean body goes a long way. Bathing twice a day is ideal, once in the morning and once before bed. Your body collects a lot of bacteria throughout the day and when you sleep, you sweat! The cleaner you are, the more confident and better you feel when you go out into the world. Light scented perfumes and essential oils are fine, as long as you’re careful not to put too much on. The hint or faint smell of a perfumed-scent is always appreciated.
  3. A great hairstyle can really say a lot about your personal style. Take a look in a few magazines and find a model who wears her hair in a way that speaks to you! What is it about that hairstyle that makes her special? How can you recreate it with your own twist? Be sure to look for models that have the same head shape and face as you do. Some hairstyles can often make you look older or younger than you really are. In the end, it all depends on what you think looks best!
  4. Your smile sets the mood, but your COLOR sets the tone. Do you have a favorite color? Wear it often in your clothing. It helps identify a part of your personality. Accessorize your color with scarves, jewelry, handbags, and shoes.
  5. Seek to buy clothing that compliments the body you have NOT the body you want! It is so easy to think that just because we can fit into a garment, we can wear it. If it doesn’t flatter your figure, leave it in the store.

I’d love to see you in your best attire! If you want another opinion on your look, send your best pics to me at yoli@yolitamu.com!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
