When we dress good, we usually feel good too. Looking the part and feeling smart can make a huge difference in how you work. Here are five ways to look more stylish at the office.
The saying ‘dress to impress’ applies to wherever we go and can make a huge difference in the workplace. Making the effort and dressing smart can change the way your co-workers and bosses perceive you and could potentially bring you many advantages such as being put forward to engage with clients. Although wearing a suit and tie aren’t as compulsory as they used to be, taking time on your appearance can only be a good thing in the long run.
Keep it Casual
If your office has a relaxed approach to clothing, still try to make a little effort and look presentable for the day. There are a variety of approaches you can take with this including wearing chinos and jeans as opposed to suit trousers. Teaming either with a fun, patterned shirt can make an outfit look more appealing and add a bit of character to your look.
Mix it Up
If you cannot find the balance between looking too smart or too casual, why not cut straight down the middle and mix and match. Wearing a pair of jeans with a smart shirt and blazer can help take a casual looking outfit into something more practical and sophisticated for the office. Even wearing a t shirt tucked into a fitted pair of chinos can portray a stylish yet practical look for work.
Suited and Booted
Once you have your attire sorted, it is important to know what footwear works best with it. If you are going for the smart option, invest in a pair of leather shoes and polish that will provide comfort and style as well as keeping your footwear in tip top condition. However, always remember to co-ordinate the color of your belt with your shoes to avoid any fashion faux paus. If you are going for a more casual look, finding a good pair of loafers, brogues or boat shoes can help complete your look and add a much-needed touch of style.
Eye for Detail
Before you have your look sorted, be sure to check out the various items you can add on to make your outfit stand out and give you a touch of class. Taking simple steps such as wearing a wristwatch and fitting on a tie bar can show you have taken the time and effort in your appearance as well as exuding confidence. Also, websites like dudepins.com specialize in giving top tips on the latest men’s fashion and which essentials you need to help finish the perfect office outfit.
If you have researched online and are still unsure on what look suits you best, be sure to go into clothing stores where you will be able to find a variety of styles which will help guide you and give you the stylish office look you want.
