Make sure when you walk into the boardroom you command attention. Your outfit can help with that. Here’s how:
Loose fitting shirts, jackets and pants will make you look sloppy and untidy.
Experiment trying on different suits with a trimmer fit, or find a good tailor to work with.
Want to combat the heat during warmer weather? Choose a natural blend shirt.
Pure linen tends to wrinkle and will give off an untidy look, rather go for a cotton blend. They’re light weight, breathable and less noticeable on creases.
Normally the width of your tie should match the width of your lapel.
Choose a tie that is darker in colour than your dress shirt.
A pocket square adds an extra level of polish, but make sure it matches your tie in either pattern or fabric choice.

Nothing gets attention and respect like being in with the trends. Classic and sophisticated trends, of course.
Length is important. The hem of your pants should rest comfortably on top of your shoes.
When choosing a belt, go for something narrow and sleek and keep colour tones similar to your shoes.
Bag the look. Invest in a well-made leather briefcase if your budget allows it. It will last a life time and quality leather only improves with time.

It’s time to throw away the chunky soles and square toed shoes.
They will just add more weight to your look. Instead invest in a pair that’s made from high quality leather, thin soled and round toed.
