When it comes to the world of business, there’s a ton of importance placed on the way you look, and for good reason. After all, we’re not going to trust someone in ratty and ragged clothing, are we? They say “the clothes make the man,” and there’s something to that. Though your appearance may seem irrelevant to your job, keep in mind that a well groomed appearance speaks to a discipline and seriousness that you want out of a businessman. With this in mind, you can more completely refine your professional look to make you the most trustworthy version of yourself.
In a professional setting, you’re going to want to stick to neutral colored suits. Think black, grey, brown, and navy. These neutral colors possess a gravitas that, say, a vibrant red suit does not. You’re going to want to also be sure to tuck your shirt in and keep it fully button. A tie is also a must. Despite the neutral colors only rule on suits, shirts, ties, and socks don’t have that same restriction. At least, not usually. You can use this to your advantage by experimenting with a touch of color or an interesting pattern on these articles of clothing. Not only is this usually acceptable, it’s often encouraged. You don’t always have to go with the classic black and white look, though it is a safe bet.
However, sometimes you just need to get out of your restrictive suit. And, I have some good news for you, because Summer is approaching and, with it, Summer vacation. This would be a good time to start planning your vacation, which may include getting something more relaxing from Patagonia for your vacation. Get away for awhile and go on an adventure while you’re at it.
