Make a Statement With Suits and Ties
As an attorney, I often recommend that my clients dress more formally for their meeting or conference. There are many reasons for this but the main ones are that black tie occasions call for much more formality and the expectation is that attorneys are serious about the business at hand. While a traditional suit and tie are fine, I think that today’s business world calls for a more casual look. This doesn’t mean that you should be wearing a sports jersey or playing sports to get ready for your meeting, just because it is work. In this post, I will review timeless suit-and-tie (and suit) rules and provide you with some of-the-time top fashion examples as to how these rules can be put to good use in the workplace.
A long time ago, suit and tie were a simple three-piece outfit. Men would wear a two-piece suit and a tie if they were meeting alone or women would wear a skirt and blouse (or a pant suit and blouse). But since the 1960’s, suit and tie have evolved into more elegant and stylish outfits. The modern suit and tie can now be found in almost any style and cut that you want with the right trousers. For example, a nice pair of slacks, dark trousers with a tie in a contrasting color such as black or charcoal will look nice with a nice suit and a bow tie or a plain neck tie.
And no longer is the suit and tie just for men. Nowadays women can choose from a wide range of women’s suits such as business suits, evening suits, and more. So ladies, if you are not sure what to wear for that job interview, a good rule of thumb is to look good and be professional. That is always a good thing. So go out there, find a great suit and make sure that you are comfortable and confident in it.
