The most formalistic rules in men’s fashion apply to formal attire. A formal look seems to be more noticeable and a man looks at his best, as it gives him a more elegant, dignified and polished look.
Considering formal shirts, one needs to make sure to avoid translucent or see-through shirts as they don’t seem appropriate. A white crisp shirt is a building block of a men’s wardrobe and are always the best option and on other days, one may wear a more mild patterned shirt, like stripes or a checkered shirt. A well-fitted shirt is always appropriate and a loose-fitted shirt with loose or short sleeves is a strict no-no on first day at work. It is awkward to leave the buttons, unbuttoned. One must look after this that the buttons are properly put up and the cuff buttons, too are properly put, to avoid any improper look.
Solid-color silk ties are regular office attire, though rarely exciting. Adding texture with a knit makes for an easy transition back to civilian life.
Considering formal pants, it is advisable to cancel out any pastel colored pants and prefer dark colored pants. Trousers, which are not too full or pegged are perfectly appropriate for a formal look. Do not over do on colors, one hue will keep the look smart and professional.
One must make sure that ironing is important, be it the cuff, the sleeves. Your attire speaks about your personality and one must make sure that their clothes are neat and well-ironed. Opt for what comforts you, as your comfort will make you make a statement, while a tight-fitting shirt or pant can’t! Pay attention to your shoes and make sure that it is clean and polished.
