  • If you wear it to the bar on Saturday night, don’t wear it in the of ce.
  • Cheap suits are easy to spot. Make an investment in a well- tted suit. A modestly priced suit can be tailored to t well making it appear to be much higher quality.
  • If it’s in Vogue or Details, it’s probably not appropriate for the office– unless you work in the fashion industry.
  • Be current in style and age appropriate in your choices. Your business dress should be noticed for the right reasons and quickly forgotten.
  • Avoid sloppiness, rips, and stains in any type of clothing and shoes.
