The old adage, “The way you dress is the way you are addressed” is correct. Regardless of your office ethics, you should always be dressed presentably. The usual dress code for corporate organizations is a suit with classic closed-toe pumps. Although most offices nowadays do not require such strict policies with formal attire, looking smart is always good for business. If your first outfit option isn’t a suit, we have a few tricks you can use to help you pull off the formal business attire. 1. Look for clothes with solid structures. Your clothes should be made of fabrics with some weight, which send a strong message of authority. Fabrics like twill and pinpoint Oxford are good options.

6. Blazer are also a viable option. They give off a relaxed vibe, and you can pair them with either a pantsuit or midi skirt. And, if your company’s policy permits, you can wear a blazer with a comfortable pair of jeans.
