Dressing for success is still a relevant concept, but mostly in the context of your professional brand. Your appearance, personality and how you carry yourself still play a key role in that hard-to-define leadership presence or executive presence. Clothes are a part of it.
You should dress like the folks around you. If everyone in your workplace has a tattoo visible, no problem. But if you’re the only one with multiple piercings and you want to get ahead, it could be a potential problem. If you interface with clients, you want to dress in a way that makes them comfortable. And the old maxim of dressing for the job you want still holds too!
