The absolute classic among business outfits is the suit. Of course, there are countless shapes, colors and possible combinations. In this article it is just about the classical model, as it is carried in more conservative professions or for example in formal business meetings or job interviews. There are some things that should be noted.
First: The suit must fit properly! The trouser legs should not be too short or too long. The same applies to the sleeves. Anyone who has difficulty in finding a matching suit, should go to a tailor – but this could be expensive. Great suits at a good price-performance ratio, you get for example at Dolzer. Alternatively a tailor could shorten the suit afterwards. That is not quite as expensive.
Moreover the classic business suit should not be black. Black can be very dominantly. The best are dark blue and anthracite. Beautiful are also fine pinstripes, please no rough, they could seem intrusive. To have not a too strong contrast with the dark suit, it should not be combined with a white blouse (the exception proves the rule, as always). I recommend a blouse in light blue. This makes the look softer. Tie in simple black pumps. The heel should not be too high, which seems quickly untrustworthy. Small women I recommend shoes that taper in a slightly pointed front, which straighten the leg visually. Belt and bag should have the same color as your shoes. But check it out yourself …
