Office dressing not your strong suit? Check out our no-fail tips on how to dress for success.
For a relaxed look, instead of a traditional shirt, wear your favourite suit with a classic polo shirt in a soft pastel shade. Or, ditch the jacket and wear a polo and v neck sweater with chinos or casual trousers.
A leather dress belt will upgrade any suit or trouser. Rule of thumb; Black shoes? Black belt. Brown shoes? Brown belt. The buckle is key – look for well-crafted hardware that is simply designed and feels solid
A great outerwear piece is worth the investment and will last for years. Choose a classic style like a camel coat, iconic trench, or simple top coat. Get it right and it will hardly matter what you’re wearing underneath!
If you want to leave your tie at home and still look pulled together, match the colour of your shirt to your suit. Tonal layers look sophisticated and are even appropriate for evenings out. Looking to make a statement? Bold stripes, gingham patterns, and bright button downs look crisp and professional under solid suiting.
The style and condition of your wallet says a lot about you. Whatever you do, don’t over stuff it. If you travel with a computer, a cross-body messenger bag is the practical choice, will keep you organized and it looks great too.
Lace-ups and loafers with thin leather soles are generally considered to be formal and on the traditional side. That said, they are the perfect shoe choice for a skinny trouser suit. For a less corporate laid back look, go for wing-tips, brogues and oxford styles with thicker crepe or lug soles.
