When people see you on TV you don’t want them commenting on your clothes. You want them focused on your message. Full stop.
So, before you head on into your interview, it’s a good idea to rehearse it …. maybe record it and play it back with the sound OFF! Take a good hard look at what you see.
Do your clothes sit well? Are the colours bleeding or blurring? Is your jewelry overwhelming? Has your forehead started to shine?
Take every visual element into account to maximise your performance. Do a checklist and include:
. Facial expressions
. Head movements
. Body movement
. Hand movements
Now it’s not that style is MORE important than substance. Substance is what counts. But no one will concentrate on your message if your style is distracting. Smooth it out first before you think about trying to deliver your message.
