Dress Codes for Men
There are typically four types of corporate dress codes: business formal, business professional, business casual, and casual. Here are some general tips for both men and women for each category. Stick close to the basics and ensure that you’re always dressed appropriately.
1. Business Formal
In the course of your work, you regularly meet with executives or otherwise hold a high-level position, you might be asked to come dressed “business formal” or in “boardroom attire.” This is the highest level of professional dress.
•A tailored one – two button suit in a solid, neutral color like black, gray, or navy.
•Ties and other accessories should be both modest in color and style – solid, brighter colors (a red tie, for example), or patterned muted neutrals (a navy plaid tie) – as well as high-end in quality. No novelty ties, such as sports team patterns.
•White, collared button-up shirts.
•Shoes should be closed-toe oxfords in brown or black, not loafers.
•Hair should be well-groomed. In general, short hair is most acceptable. Check with HR to see if tied-back long hair is also acceptable.
•Nails should be clipped short, clean, and buffed. Don’t be shy about getting regular professional manicures.
