Be Better: Dress for success

Posted: Updated:

In today's Be Better report, a new study out of the UK shows more than 60% of women have spent more than $6,000 of their salary on new clothes with the intention of furthering their career. Research shows when it comes to working women, your appearance can affect your paycheck.

As the saying goes "beauty is only skin-deep," but research shows a few tricks may help your pockets get a little deeper! A tip for waitresses: Wear something red. The study from the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Research found men tipped up to 26% more to servers rocking scarlet.

Your make-up bag may also hold the key to success. Boston University researchers found women who wear make-up appear to be more likable, trustworthy, and competent. Just don't overdo it. Too much can have the opposite effect.

Finally, heels can help boost your position at work! A study in the American Psychological Association found taller women tend to get paid more. Each inch over five-three could be worth an extra $800 a year.

    The Military's Search for 1 little boy ends in Shreveport. Serious men with a serious mission, and a seriously great sense of humor. Airmen and soldiers serving in Afghanistan found laughter in difficult times, all courtesy of 4 little words in a letter from a school child – “Hope you make it. – Gavin” The troops wanted to meet the young man who inspired them so much.
