Jury’s Out: Welcome To First Impressions Month on HSS!

October 3rd, 2016

What “first impression”-related topics would you like to see covered this month?

There’s that saying we’re all familiar with – don’t judge a book by its cover. It’s sound advice. I’m sure we can all recall at least one instance when we pegged someone completely wrong.

But the truth of the matter is that no matter how many times you tell yourself not to do such a thing, no matter how hard you try not to, we make assumptions about other people based on how they look.

Which brings us to another saying we all know very well – you never get a second chance to make a first impression

And that, loyal HSS readers, is what we’re going to explore this month.

If you read this site, you know that how you dress plays an extremely important role in how you are perceived by other people. And there are countless times when a positive first impression might actually matter more than most things in the world at that particular moment. A job interview? First date? And so on.

We’ll be diving into this topic rather quickly so now is the time to let us know what you want to see covered! Chime in below.

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,
