Dress for Success with Lindley Clothing

Despite the shift in many offices from traditional suits to some form of business casual, the general rule of thumb remains the same - dress for the job you WANT, not the job you have.

Business casual is less formal than traditional business attire, but it is still intended to look professional and businesslike. Inappropriately dressing at the office can be the biggest roadblock to career growth, but many people don’t have a clear understanding of what is appropriate.

The experienced team at Lindley can help! Our advice – complete the look from head to toe. Follow these tips from Lindley Clothing:

  • Wear clothes that fit. Ill-fitting suits – either too big or too small – look sloppy and unprofessional. The Lindley team can help you create a style that is right for your body size and type, including custom-fit dress shirts that can be dressed up or down.

  • Build your wardrobe with a few staples. Versatile sportscoats and dress pants, paired with custom-fit shirts, will help you be prepared for any professional situation.

  • Know the basic rules. Button-down collared shirts can be worn with a sportscoat, but not a suit. The tip of your tie should hit the middle of your waistband – not longer or shorter. You need a t-shirt under a dress shirt.

  • Don’t forget about the shoes. It won’t matter how great your shirt, tie, pants, sportscoat look if your shoes are worn, don’t match, or need a good shine. The goal is a complete look from head to toe. 

  • Don’t be afraid to branch out. If your office dress code is less professional, consider adding a patterned pair of socks, or a shirt or sportscoat if you’re more adventurous.
