Before my husband Neal came to work with me full-time, he worked in the corporate world which meant he dressed up in a suit everyday. He’d come home to me in yoga pants and a messy bun (yep, that’s my work from home attire). Now, when we have a big meeting, we both get dressed up and because part of our jobs entails presenting ourselves well, the impression you give off and how you pull a look together is crucial. Neal loves his suits, and because he’s had years of experience at pulling together a polished and professional look, I asked him to share his tips for the men in your life (whether it’s for work, a big meeting or an event):

NEALS TOP 3 TIPS FOR WORK SUITING

  1. Fit is everything: Sometimes you can get lucky with a suit that fits just right, but we all have different builds, so finding a good tailor is really important to looking your best.
  2. Conservative doesn’t have to be boring: While the office dress code requires a lot of neutrals and basics, you can select pieces that have a print, accessory (like pocket squares/tie clips) or different textures to mix it up.
  3. A good pair of shoes goes a long way: Especially if you’re commuting to work, you’ll want to pick out a quality pair that will be comfortable while you’re on your feet!
