Well-dressed Professionals on LinkedIn

Since my recent post on professional dress and the need for more attention to the issue from and for males, I accepted an invitation to connect on LinkedIn from Rebecca Hetzler, a paralegal/legal secretary at Steptoe & Johnson in the Columbus, Ohio area. She is a member of the LinkedIn group – “Well-dressed Professionals.” I have not yet joined or reviewed the discussions for the group, but here’s how it bills it self:

This is a group for those of us who (despite the trend towards casual attire in the workplace) still choose to dress well. – Todd Herschberg, Founder.

Discussions can be found on the group site: http://welldressed.collectiveX.com

Members of the group include a “Menswear Designer and Owner” and “President, Advance Image & Etiquette Consulting.” I agree with Vicki Voison’s comment that “it’s easier for guys, though: a navy blue sport coat, khakis and nice shirt (with or without a tie) will take them a long, long way,” but I also like to think that male fashion can extend beyond the “frat boy” uniform and still be professional. So, check out the “Well-dressed Professionals” group and tell me what you think. Also, do use the advice from both my book, The Empowered Paralegal: Effective, Efficient, and Professional, and from Vicki and Charlsye’s book, The Professional Paralegal: A Guide to Finding a Job and Career Success
