Casual Business Attire

How to Look Professional and Attractive February is the month when, after weeks of rest, a “regular” working atmosphere actually returns to a large number of companies in Serbia. This is a similar period to September – after the end of the summer holidays. The return to the business routine – from slippers and tracksuits to business suits, ties and leather shoes – has never been easy. As such, this is a good opportunity to remind ourselves of the basics of business dress code ethics.

Vince Stretch Knit Sheath Dress

Longstanding colours, such as blue, black, grey, or brown, are the colours of choice for successful woman in business.

On the other side, men should wear business suits/ blazers/sports coats/tweed jackets, dress shirts, and leather shoes.

We would admit that this seems rather conservative. So, what’s the secret of those office colleagues of ours who act differently and more attractive? The trick is to wear professional attire, but to simultaneously achieve an attractive appearance.

This trick is not easy to achieve, but here are a few tips that might help you.
