Plain-style, non-patterned in a neutral color. Take an extra pair “in case”. Shoes and accessories:  Shoes and accessories Wear low heeled pumps in a neutral color that matches your accessories Be sure they are clean and polished Avoid open toed shoes If you wear a belt or carry a purse or briefcase (one, not both) be sure they are the same color, polished and conservative Keep is simple:  Keep is simple A little more risky for some situations:  A little more risky for some situations Younger Women can wear a little higher heel to the office:  Younger Women can wear a little higher heel to the office But NOT these Like these Oops 1 color 2 texture 3 heal height:  Oops 1 color 2 texture 3 heal height Good heal height:  Good heal height What to wear for men:  What to wear for men Suit Fit Shirt Accessories, socks, shoes Suit—Objective :  Suit—Objective Conservative—Two-piece two- buttoned, vented, single breasted business suit, 100% Worsted Wool, fully lined coat, half lined trousers in navy blue or charcoal gray (pinstripe, muted plaid, solid or herringbone) Suit—Objective :  Suit—Objective Semi-Conservative—Same as conservative plus three or four button suit in navy, charcoal, earth tones or possibly even black. Additional options are textured fabrics in lighter to medium tones, as well as non-vented jackets. The more creative your work environment the more creative you clothing options. Jacket Fit:  Jacket Fit Jacket should lie smoothly over your shoulders and across your back Shoulders cut too wide diminish the head. Shoulders cut too narrow make the head appear larger than it is. The jacket's shoulders frame the head--A balanced presentation. Collar should follow neck silhouette closely—no gaping Jacket length should cover your entire seat and should be half the distance from the collar seam to the floor. Jacket hem should line up with the thumb knuckle. Sleeves should cover the break of the wrist, allowing ¼ to ½ inch of shirt cuff to show Hollywood knows about sleeves length:  Hollywood knows about sleeves length You should too. Trouser fit:  Trouser fit The waist of your trousers should be just at or slightly below your navel and should fit snugly without feeling tight. This puts the crotch of the pants at the crotch of the wearer, which allows for movement without stressing the pants. Trousers should fit smoothly across the top of the buttocks, then follow the curve about halfway down, then fall straight down. When pants follow the curve all the way down, we call them jeans! Hems may be either straight or cuffed—if cuffed, make sure they are proportional to the wearers height. Shirt:  Shirt White is best. When in doubt wear white. 100 percent cotton is preferred Point, button tab, or spread collars best Point collar for fuller faces Spread collar for narrower faces Collar should show ½ inch above jacket collar at nape of neck Cuff should show ¼ to ½ inch below sleeve. Sleeve must have enough length for the arm to bend without pulling on the cuff. Cuff must fit snugly so additional sleeve length will not fall over the hand. Very clean and well pressed Shirt should fit well and have an index finger of breathing room at the collar.
