professional style

Work in a formal or conservative environment? Need to make a good impression at an interview or meeting? Personal stylist, Tracy Gold, gives us her top tips to creating a slick formal look.

Some working environments do require formal dress. If not a suit, then a shirt and tie is the order of the day. If it’s not what you are used to or your professional image isn’t reflecting your level of success or ambition, take a look at these tips to help you take your professional image to the next level.

These are the key elements to a slick professional look:

Fit is key: You can wear an expensive suit, but if it doesn’t fit you well, it’s not going to look good. A good suit is worth investing in. If you find it hard to find a good fit, look out for men’s stores who do in-house tailoring or can recommend a good tailor. It’s worth paying a little extra to look sharp.

A tailored shirt: Most men look better in a tailored shirt no matter their build. This doesn’t mean tight, just tailored in all the right places. Look around to find your perfect fit or go to a store who can tailor your shirts to fit you. If you are the kind of guy who likes to make a statement, select a shirt in a bold colour or a print that suits your complexion.

Attention to detail: Don’t forget the details guys. A good pair of shoes, tie and belt can finish off a look. Pointy shoes are very helpful in creating a slim line look. They can make your legs look longer and your overall look slimmer. Ensure that you polish your shoes regularly. Scuffed shoes can really ruin a look.

Well groomed: A good haircut and well-groomed hands makes a big difference to your overall look. Remember that grooming is no longer just for ladies.
