Get a nice, simple blazer. Dark colors like black, gray, navy, and dark brown are always at home in the office. You can add a splash of color by adding a tastefully chosen pocket square. And please, if you're wearing a jacket, you should have a pocket square. No exceptions.
Need to impress the boss? Don't Worry!
Here are 7 easy-to-follow fashion tips for the corporate man. Follow these, and you won't just impress the boss, you'll look like the boss too!
1. Invest in a good suit.
Though it's not required in most workplaces anymore, the classic suit is still one of the most reliable ways to put your best foot forward. A good suit can make you feel 10 times more confident.
2. Learn How To Style Your Suit
A nice suit will do you no good if you don't know how to wear it. Pair black suits with black shoes and a black belt. It's a fashion faux pas to wear brown shoes with a black suit. If you have a blue, khaki, or navy suit, wear brown shoes.
3. Don't wanna wear a suit?
4. Get clothes that fit.
You definitely will not be making any good impressions at the office with baggy slacks and a suit that's 3 sizes too big. Men often overlook this aspect of fashion. Look for a tailor in your area that can adjust your store-bought clothing and make them fit your body just right.
5. Don't wear crazy prints.
Obviously, you're not gonna want to wear your Ozzy Osborne shirt to a client meeting. Avoid shirts with loud and potentially offensive prints. Keep it understated and simple, yet sleek and stylish.
6. Don't know how to choose colors? Go monochrome.
For some men, choosing the right color combinations can take forever. To remedy this, you can choose to wear different shades of the same color. When in doubt, you can also choose to go all black, for that super sleek, clean, and timeless look.
7. Choose the right shoes. In some less-formal offices, you can get away with sneakers. But if you're in an office that demands formality, get a nice pair of Oxfords or a similar dress shoe. Ideally, a man should always have a pair of black and a pair of brown shoes.
