Figuring Out The Invite

Now before you decide what to wear for an event, you need to figure if there is a dress code. More often than not the invite will mention this. For e.g., the black tie- this is pretty much straight forward and the colours are limited to black and white. In case the invite does not mention the dress code then ask, the host ideally a few days before the event. If you are unable to ask the host, then check in with other people who are attending regarding their choice.  Finally if you are left with no option then choose clothes which can be dressed down or up with the least effort. Removing or wearing a tie, and leaving the collar open can help you dress down or dress up for an event.

 

Tailored Suits

Dressing up in a suit gives you a very formal and authoritative look. It leads people to associate with you qualities like intelligence, confidence and trust in you. It lets people know you are serious, and can be expected to deliver.  However, the flip side is if you choose an ill-fitting suit you will kill your first impression right from the start. The joy of a suit is that it can be worn almost anywhere and everywhere, while labelling you stylish.

 

So choosing the right suit is important, as you will be the very few lucky people on whom, off the rack suits look stunning. Plus getting a suit tailored can sometimes end up costing less than a store brought suit.

 

Make Chinos Your Business Casual

However, if you want to stand out of the crowd while adhering to the dress code Chinos are the best option. They imitate the look and style of a suite without being a suit. Selecting a navy & camel chinos are the safest options that will work with all kinds of body wear. The cut should be slim but not skinny. There are different styles of chinos available, which can suit the occasion you are dressing for since they are so versatile.
