Everybody has to have a side hustle these days. Whether you work from home as a moonlighting maverick of modern online entrepreneurship, or you just put in hours as a volunteer to help make the world a better place, you’ve got to diversify your time.
You know what they say: “All work and no play makes Jack chase his family around an old hotel with an axe.”
These might not be the exact words others have used, but you get the idea. Something has to occupy your time other than work and family. Here are some wardrobe and style types to help guide your side hustle, whatever it may be:
The Smoothest Recluse
This is the template for the work-from-home hustler we mentioned before. Really anybody can adopt this façade and make it their own. The broad idea is simple, but easy to mess up if you allow yourself to be lured into the cozy comforts of mixing personal and professional life.
If you’re a remote employee or independent service provider, there are two things to keep in mind when you get ready for your day:
- Online isn’t invisible.
- Mobility makes money.
A lot of remote work relies on video conferencing through Skype and other technologies that will capture your image in real-time. So, don’t ignore your coiffure when you’re cleaning up. Of course, just because your office might also be your living room, it doesn’t limit your look to above the shoulders. You never know when you’ll have a last-minute opportunity to meet with a game-changing client, so stay fitted with business casual attire during business hours.
Like to mix and match? Need a look that is all your own? One of the nice things about a side hustle, in theory at least, is that it should allow you a little more breathing room in terms of wardrobe than your day job. The side gig is something you’ve picked up by choice, so here’s how to choose a wardrobe that respects that choice: Know your industry.
Whatever you’re up to when you’re working on the side, knowing how to dress is about knowing the clientele you seek to serve and the limits of the human eye. Chances are, you can explore your own professional look with different combinations of business and casual clothing. You might even be the type to gather your wardrobe together by stalking the aisles of your local thrift shop.
One thing’s for sure, though, don’t overdo it. It can be hard to predict who you’ll be talking to in your endeavors, so loud colors and controversial choices may come with certain risk.
This is advice for the man who wants unquestionably classy clothing to represent a qualified entrepreneur with drive.
First and foremost, it’s all about grooming. Nothing ruins a good outfit quicker than unkempt hair or a scraggly beard. It’s not a lot for people to expect a monthly haircut and routine cleaning to be part of a professional’s regular schedule. You don’t need a lot of product to refine your own appearance, but a little styling goes a long way for the man who is willing to work a little harder in the morning.
Other than that, make your mark with form-fitting, business attire if you want your collaborators and customers perceiving you as a high-end hustler.
