Choose what you wear depending on your stature and position: Your image is your most valuable marketing tool and your wardrobe is one of your most important investments. You should have an appropriate attire for all occasions, from power suits for business and board meetings to sophisticated business causal ensembles for more relaxed meetings or social engagements. Clothes should fit your body well and not dangle. A grey two-piece matched with two shirts: purple and white, and a navy two-piece (an international business staple) matched with two shirts: sky blue Royal Oxford and a sharp white Royal Oxford comes as a basic power dresser guide to formal meetings. Have your clothes well maintained and they will age gracefully and last longer.
Hide your imperfections through a bespoke-tailored shirt: A well-fitted shirt is a must in a CEO’s wardrobe. A bespoke shirt can make men visually appear having a good V-shape upper body. For instance, leaving up a little fabric to accommodate a belly while keeping the waist and back snugly fit goes into our ‘tailoring book of smart hacks.’ Some men even have a difference in shoulder slope, so our fit comments for our clients have included right and left shoulder droop, round back, high shoulders, normal shoulders, sloping and very sloping shoulders.
Choose the right collar spreads that suit your face shape: Collar spreads and collar points are chosen based on the face shape and the proportion of the shoulder and the body. Semi-spread collars work best for most face shapes. However, small spreads are better for a round face. Those with longer and thinner face shapes might want a collar that will visually widen their face. The collar point length is the size of the collar from the collar tip at the neck to the end of the collar in the front. Generally, larger men look best in collars with longer points as it proportionally compliments their stature. Shorter men might want to consider going with a shirt that has shorter points, so that it leaves them looking slightly taller.
Your clothing and appearance speak volumes about you. While most would think a dark coloured suit or pin stripes work, there is a lot more to power dressing than just some tweaks to your wardrobe. In most cases, power dressing and even style, is not just about how you look, but also about how you feel. For instance, in Asian countries a smart businessman is better off in a good looking, well-crafted shirt, as opposed to a stuffy suit. This can also be attributed to our weather conditions, where heat and humidity can play havoc with a well-crafted suit. Appropriate business casual attire is important.
Choose an expert image/wardrobe consultant to polish your appearance. Style consultants communicate your visual power to the world. The cost of clothing must be looked upon as an investment. For these reasons, it’s best to seek the advice of certified experts of the trade! A good wardrobe consultant, by carefully crafting your image, will make you look and feel great, exude power, and communicate effectively, thus making you more successful.
