Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Being an Entrepreneur is one thing but looking the part really helps ‘seal the deal’ by giving you a more professional look. No matter how you want to look at it, the way you present yourself really does matter, especially when it comes down to first impressions. Today’s guest post from one of my regulars, Claire Ashley from Mens Suit Habit, is aimed at helping men look the part of the elegant entrepreneur.
Being an entrepreneur, giving a positive first impression is of vital importance. Your customers, partners, and clients unknowingly judge you on your appearance and image. The way you dress and how you conduct yourself conveys a message to everyone around you. Your style speaks a lot about your person, therefore, you should decide firsthand what kind of image you want to present to the world. After all, it’s among the few things you have complete control over in business!
If you are confused in choosing what to wear than you are at the right place as this article has compiled 5 easy fashion tips to dress up like an elegant entrepreneur so that you can step in the world of business with confidence and style.
[ Professional Business Look ]
First and foremost, dressing up to give a professional outlook is vital for making a successful venture. The professional dress code include mens suits, consisting mostly of neutral colors such as navy blue, gray and black. Wearing these colors give you a sophisticated and formal look – exactly what you want in a business meeting.
While choosing a shirt to wear with your suit, stick to neutral shades, preferably white. To finish the look, go for dark shaded brogues or loafers in warmer seasons.
[ Classic Business Look ]
You can never go wrong with your looks when you go for classics, such as wearing a classic & simple navy blue suit which can add more charisma to your personality without making you look like you’re trying hard.
You can add color to your outfit by adding a tie or a pocket square but choose wisely and make sure they complement your outfit as well as your personality. You can complete this classic business look by wearing plain derby shoes.
[ Business Casual Look ]
You can attain the business casual or smart casual look by switching your suit jacket with a blazer. Denim shirts look too casual, but patterned shirts are a great choice.
For shoes, you can opt for either loafers and brogues as they pair up exceptionally well with a smart casual outfit.
[ Layering Winter Look ]
Layering is a great way to upgrade your look by adding more details to your outfit. It is an attractive option to make a dull outfit look more interesting.
Most guys avoid layering because they think they cannot do that much matching but the art of layering is not that difficult. In fact, it is so easy if you wear a white collared shirt underneath your sweater, for example. You will make your outfit look more appealing in comparison to just wearing a plain gray collared shirt with jeans.
[ Accessorize ]
To carry out the look of an elegant entrepreneur, accessorizing is of vital importance. But keep in mind, you don’t have to over accessorize yourself.
For example, if you are choosing not to wear a neck tie then you can opt for a fantastic pocket square. Adding a smart dress watch to your outfit is always a great choice as it makes you look more professional.
