Have you ever heard of a fashion consultant before? An image consultant or fashion consultant is someone who can give you advice how to find the best fashion styles and colours for you.

Now, it can be relatively easy for you to learn about fashion trends on your own, but there are some individuals who just want to seek professional assistance. So why would someone seek the services of an image consultant?

A great time to see an image consultant is when you are looking to get a new job or have recently been hired for one. Starting a new job or even just interviewing for one is a very stressful time. In today's fast-paced world first impressions count, and your competence, intelligence and reliability is judged within seconds.

Did you know that your visual appearance accounts for more than half the impression you give other people? This means that knowing how to manage your personal presentation so that you are quickly seen as effective and confident is as critical as any business skill on a resume.

Unfortunately, workplace fashion can be tricky, as different businesses have different needs. For instance, if you were to work in a clothing store, there is a good chance that you would want to dress in trendy clothing (probably from the store where you work), but if you worked in a law office, professional attire is a must.

These days though, it is not just business attire you need to worry about, but also business casual. Many workplaces now have 'casual Friday' where employees can dress down a little. While this can be a lot of fun, it can also be a minefield. Unless there is a specified theme, you are left on your own with regards to what you should wear. Every workplace will be different but you still need to keep in mind the type of business you work for and the standards that are generally accepted there.

Business trips can also pose a problem, if you are lucky enough to get them. Often you are given you own private, personal time which can be nice, but it may pose a problem. You may want to toss on a bikini and relax with no worries, but you need to remember that those who you may be meeting with for business may be staying at the same hotel or resort.

Professional image consultants know how to help you dress for success, and also how to use body language, business etiquette and colour to your advantage. Therefore, if you are interested in revamping your appearance for a new job or even just an interview, you may want to think about using the services of an image consultant.

Weddings are another time when many individuals seek professional assistance, and if they don't, they should! Unfortunately, many do not realize that an image consultant can help with planning of a wedding. A qualified fashion consultant can not only help you find the perfect wedding dress to fit you and your body type, but they can also help you choose the perfect dresses for your bridesmaids. If you are about to be married soon and still have no idea how to go about planning your bridal attire, you may want to think about hiring the services of a professional image consultant.

As you can see, there are a number of different instances where you may want to turn to a professional image or fashion consultant. A qualified consultant will be able to show you exactly which colours and styles of clothing and accessories best suit you and how to dress for success, whatever the occasion.
