What to Wear
I see so many new organizers question what they should wear to sessions. While there isn’t any right answer or steadfast rule, below are a few industry favorites.

When it comes to pants, you want to be sure that they are comfortable but presentable. Depending on the type of organizing you may be doing, there could be a lot of bending and stooping, so you’ll want something that moves comfortably with you. Personally, I hate pants with zippers and buttons, so I tend to opt for those with elastic waists. Thankfully, the fashion industry is on board, so even my dress pants are comfortable.
I probably struggle with tops the most. I’m a cury girl, and I hate wearing fitted tops. Thankfully, there are some options available that still allow me to feel confident, look professional, and be comfortable. I always suggest looking into getting your logo printed on a shirt, and having designated “work shirts” with your logo on them. It tends to look professional and helps take the guesswork out of what to wear. Not to mention, if you happen to wear it out and about it serves as free advertising.
Again, the type of shoes you wear are going to depend on the type of organizing you’re doing. You’ll wear something completely different if you’re organizing a garage, as opposed to organizing files for a home office. There’s nothing wrong with a good comfortable pair of tennis shoes. But if you’re like me and want to dress it up occassionally while still being able to feel all ten of your toes at the end of the day, below are some great options that are both stylish and comfortable.
