What is your power dressing mantra?

‘Simplicity is Sophistication’ is my power dressing mantra. I do believe it is important to wear the best, look the best regardless of your position. I believe attire reflects attitude – simple yet classy dressing is required. Simple pastel colors, with minimalistic make-up will helps you look sharp and will always be looked up to by colleagues. We at YES BANK do believe a smart professional having the right, positive attitude and appearance, catches the public eye and is the best ambassador for an efficiently run organization. As a YES BANK’er it is important to be an embodiment of the ‘YES PERSONALITY’. YES PERSONALITY has three key attributes, namely: Grooming, Attitude & Wellness.
