If your morning thoughts on the daily dressing routine have become another strenuous activity in your already full schedule, we may be able to help with a few guidelines. A few of the basic rules and trends when it comes to suits will be laid out below.
These guidelines will assist you when it comes to making the right attire choice, thus giving you a sense that you are staying in tune with the current trends.
The basic rules are:
If the suit fabric has a strong structure or a busy pattern, pair the suit with a plain coloured shirt.
If your suit is a solid colour or has a slight structure and you add a patterned shirt, keeping the tie plain will compliment your style.
Plain Burgundy and Navy ties are essential for every man’s wardrobe, one of them will work with literally any business shirt.
Pocket “hanky’s” should match the shirt you’re wearing. White shirt, white handkerchief.
A little disclaimer: Obviously this is healthy guideline, but a guideline only.
A genuine power dresser can manage to combine a pinstripe suit with a checked shirt, knitted tie and colourful handkerchief. However, he is unlikely to join the CFO in the quarterly strategy meeting, is he?
