Fashion Tips for Real Estate Agents

You know what they say: Dress for the job you want. And that’s especially true for real estate agents! Your appearance can help you close a deal, or it can turn away potential clients. So if you want to be successful at selling homes, it’s important to dress well—even if that means taking a little time every morning before work to get yourself ready.

Wear elegant shoes.

While you don’t want to wear heels that are too high, you should wear shoes that are elegant and polished. This means they should fit well and be in good shape (no scuffed soles). In terms of style, stay away from flip flops, clogs and sneakers—they’re a bit too casual for the office. And while there’s nothing wrong with wearing flats when you’re out on the town in your free time, it doesn’t really look professional for most people to be seen wearing them all day long at work.

You’ll want to make sure your shoe color matches your clothes—for example, if you’re wearing navy blue trousers or skirt with an ivory blouse then try not to choose black shoes because it will draw attention away from the outfit’s colors instead of complementing them as intended.

Keep a good pair of sunglasses on hand.

Keep a good pair of sunglasses on hand – they can protect your eyes from the sun, and make you look cooler than you are. Wear sunglasses that have UV protection to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

Leave the jewelry at home.

Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, the most important thing to remember when it comes to jewelry is this: leave it at home. You could be tempted to wear your favorite necklace or dangly earrings, but the nature of real estate work makes them more trouble than they’re worth. The last thing you want is something catching on something and getting torn off as you’re showing houses—it happens all too often! Also remember that many clients are wary of people who are wearing expensive jewelry, so if someone does ask about your necklace and you feel uncomfortable answering questions about how much it cost and where exactly you got it from, don’t hesitate to take off the piece in question until after closing time.

Know how to dress for different seasons.

You can’t wear your winter wardrobe in the summer. That’s just common sense. It’s important to know how to dress for different seasons, and this is especially true if you’re a real estate agent who has clients visiting homes in different parts of the country at different times.

If it’s summer, most people are wearing light colors like white and gray because they reflect heat back into their bodies instead of absorbing it like darker colors do (this also makes them feel cooler). If it’s fall or winter, most people are wearing darker colors like black because they retain heat better than light colors do (this helps keep them warm).

If it’s spring or summertime again, then everyone should return to wearing lighter colors again since now we’re heading back into warmer climates where there isn’t as much need for thermal warmth during daytime hours anymore.

Wear clothes that are easy to move in, and flats or shoes you can walk in comfortably.

If you’re going to be standing all day, wear shoes that are comfortable. If your job involves moving around a lot, make sure the clothes that you wear are easy to move in. For example, if you have to bend over and squat down frequently throughout the day, then it would be a good idea to avoid wearing tight pants.

Wearing flats or shoes that are easy to walk in is also important because they’ll help prevent fatigue and stress on your feet and legs.
