Clothing is a very important element in creating a self-image. Any mistake in the way you dress can make you look less fancy, especially when you’re about to meet someone for the first time. Let’s leave the best impression with these 10+ dressing rules below!
#1 Take off tags
A simple thing to remember when wearing new clothes! When wearing new clothes, tags should never be visible. Even if you wear secondhand clothing, there may be tags identifying the size of the top or instructions that are visible. In such cases, the tags should always be hidden or removed.
#2 Choose matching belt and shoes
Whatever color belt you choose – black or brown – make sure you match it with the same color shoes. This makes you appear well-dressed and ensures you make a favorable impression on your coworkers.
#3 Mix a belt with tucked-in shirt
Someone once claimed that men look smart in formal shirts. But so do women! Especially when they tuck their shirts in. However, one should wear a belt while doing so. Tucked-in shirts should always be coupled with a belt to complete the aesthetic.
#4 Avoid croptop to the office
Crop shirts are not appropriate for the workplace. There are various occasions when a crop top can be paired with attractive low-rise denims and a statement necklace or a set of matching earrings. When it comes to the office, though, a formal and modest style always works wonders.
#5 Little cleavage is not suitable for the office
That being stated, when deciding what top to wear to work, keep in mind that it should not be too revealing. Choose a clothing that expresses your personality. You can experiment with color and contrast. Avoid wearing low-cut tops to the office or meetings. They can be reserved for parties, functions, and girls’ nights out.
#6 Only one: Tie or jacket
It is entirely up to the individual whether to wear a tie or a jacket to a meeting. Wearing both at the same time, however, does not look nice. You can wear a tie or a jacket, but not both at the same time.
#7 Only one: Mini skirt of cleavage
Miniskirts are an excellent choice for formal dress. It is important, however, not to wear it with a low-neck shirt because it is too revealing and may give the wrong impression to others. As a result, choose either a miniskirt or a low-neck blouse.
#8 Wear a tie the right way
When wearing a tie, make sure it contrasts with the color of your shirt, though this is not always necessary. The length of the tie, on the other hand, should be so that it hits just below the upper edge of your belt.
#9 Choose matching jewelry
When dressed officially, it is crucial to remember that one should always choose minimal jewelry. A pair of earrings and a bracelet might do the trick. Another thing to keep in mind is that matching jewelry is always preferred.
#10 Close jacket’s middle button
Always remember to keep the button closed when wearing a single-button jacket to the office. When wearing a two-button jacket to work, always fasten the top button.
#11 It’s ok to open top two buttons
Make sure that the top two buttons on your shirt or blouse are always open. Though it is not required, it will help to boost your level of comfort.
