The New Corporate Dress Code

Episode 127 - What to Wear to Work and Job Interviews - With Silvana Patrick

Episode 127 - What to wear to work and job interviews - with Silvana Patrick

Dressing for work post-lockdown is a challenge. There's a lack of motivation and a struggle to get dressed up to go back into the office. People are struggling with changing fashion trends, new office dress codes, and knowing what to dress to work from home.

So, I invited an international award-winning personal stylist, Silvana Patrick, for a chat.

Silvana Patrick has the advantage of working globally as an executive before embracing her love for fashion and styling. She knows how corporate attire plays into forming a professional brand and how important it can be in career development, job search specifically.

I always ask my guests to start by telling us a bit about their careers, and it's always great to hear about career changes. Silvana has made two important ones at the beginning, and when she noticed the wind as in her favor later on.

She then explains in a very inclusive and understanding way the importance of caring and dressing for your body shape, not following fashion trends that are not suitable to you, and embracing how you want to dress.

So let's hear my conversation with Silvana, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
