The world is changing; it’s a fact and every day there are more and more freelancers swimming around the exciting pool of the self-employment, the so-called gig-economy. However, the dream of being your own boss and traveling the world while doing it might also turn into a nightmare in seconds, and you have to be ready for every single occasion. When the “freelance” bug bites you, you gotta be ready for whatever situation falls upon you and a “bad outfit day” is absolutely non-acceptable within this world. When working on your own, you might get to work in completely different places, meetings may happen in parks or very hipster coffee spots that you may never had heard of or even in co-working spaces, where your image and first impression matters more than anything else. So for all the lucky ones that are currently (and proudly) surviving in the world of self-employment, here are four different occasions that might easily relate to and its perfect OOTD.
Freelancing can often mean having to meet your clients through Skype and this my dearest self-employed folks is a whole new form of art. Skype may enhance all those non-beautiful aspects that we may have and that is exactly why we have to be prepared for. A good concealer and casual looks are just perfect.
Oh, the joy of having coffee while working and watching through the window. One of the best things working as a freelance may offer. This scenario however, deserves a very personal and comfy look.
A go–business suit is a must. Power dressing will forever be a winner and let me just mention that nothing can beat a woman in a suit. You are just sending the right message. Rock it and be proud of who you are.
Unfortunately, no one is exempt of these boring situations and neither are we, freelancers. Remember to look professional at all times; you are your own product. You never know who you might find or get to know, your next client could be hiding within all those long queues of bored looking people.
