Suits And Shirts For Work  

If I can be one step ahead because of the clothes I wear, then it’s worth it!
CRAIG POGSON - Maitre d’ at 0rsay

Your closet will mostly full of non - work clothes at the early point in your career, which means that organizing what you wear to the office will be relatively simple. Here is a list of the minimum you should have in your work wardrobe as well as the accessories you will need to maintain your clothes properly:

1 suit
3 shirt
3 ties
1 pair of shoes
1 watch
1 portfolio
Some socks/underwear

- Full-length mirror
- Shoe trees
- Good hangers
- Lint remover
- Iron/ironing board
- Steamer

- Aviod dry-cleaning your clothes too often as it can be hard on fabrics.
- Instead of dry-cleaning wrinkled suits, try steaming then .
- Hang up your suit or sport jacket every night, and place shoe trees in your shoes when you take them off.
- Remove clothes from dry-cleaning bags when you get them home. They tend to yellow whites and hold in moisture.

Question -
I recently landed a management position similar to my job, but in my previous job I wore a suit only when clients cams to the office. In my new job the only casual days are Fridays. My two suits aren’t going to cut I can’t afford to buy one for every day. Is there a simple answer or do I just buy lots of ties?

Answer -
A navy and gray suit will take you far, so make the gray suit your next purchase. Spend a little more on this and it will becomes your bulletproof outfit. Also, add a blazer or sport coat in a small dark pattern to look pulled together on casual Fridays. Spend carefully on some good cotton shirts and silk ties and you can make it seem as if your wardrobe is endless. Remember, the suit is just the frame, the shirt and tie are the picture.

Work Wardrobe
Stuff comes out of work. Paychecks, promotions, and at one time, even security. But that has disappeared. The only security left is your ability to do well, take care of yourself, and present a clear, distinct message of your ability and worth. No matter your skill set, it is essential that you not worry about be taking care of the silent dialogue that happens whether you’re walking down a hallway in your office, seeing a customer, or sitting in a meeting. In this section, options are presented for you to build a wardrobe that will save you money and send an unmistakable message of your value and competence (if you’re not competent and don’t have value your clothes won’t help).

Dress Like You Mean Business

How you dress in an interview is one thing, but what you wear to work every day once have the position is quite another and far more complicated. The former involves looking the part and instantly communicating to your potential employers that you belong. But once you have the job, it is important to maintain appearances and standards. Obviously, your performance at work will dressing smart is essential for succeeding in the workplace.

Dressing appropriately in the office is a respect. It tells your coworkers and superiors that you are ready for business every single day. And the truth is, it does not take that much effort to dress properly for the office. In fact, that’s the point: If you can’t take the time to care about your appearance, than you are telling everyone that perhaps you aren’t taking proper care of your professional responsibilities, either.
This is the true lesson behind dressing smart in the office: You are ultimately showing respect for yourself. And if you do that, other will as well.

In Your Work Wardrobe

-Ensure Image Control
Every industry has different standards, every company within an industry has different standards, and often there divisions within the same company that have different standards than divisions. That said, there are some basic principles to follow dressing for work, and they will always apply:
- Be appropriate. An office or industry is like a club. Look like you’re a member, not guest.
- Be professional. Whether your code is corporate or casual, the clothes you wear should always reflect your seriousness about business. This will give you a quiet confidence that you can handle any task.
- Be comfortable. You cannot dress like someone you’re not. If you feel comfortable only in blue suits, then wear them. Dress for your personality and body type. But remember, comfortable does not mean sloppy.
- Be strategic. Clothes can set you apart. Ask yourself what your goals are and then dress accordingly. Are you looking for a promotion? Try wearing bolder ties so you stand out more. Is your profile too high and you just want to be part of the team? Start dressing more like the other players. Do you want the boss to notice you more? Pay attention to how he dresses, mimic him (within your budget, of course), and let him compliment you on your good taste.
