Alarm clock goes off and either you hit the snooze button a couple (or a few times), get up, shower, shave and then you turn towards your closet and time to not only dress, but be able to capture attention in the office, board room and even while you are at lunch. Some men do this without any hesitation and others, well lets just I would rather wish I could forget. If you need some help I hope you review and get some tips that will help you gain the professional look of the president, the sharpness and a tad of sexiness that known artists Pitbull possess while having that special look that Donald Trump has at every meeting in his.
If you are a beginner or trying to land a job but not sure what to do the simplest combination is a black suit, white shirt, black tie. This has the sophistication; looks sharp and nothing can go wrong that would make you wonder if it works.
Black suit with a yellow or blue combination is really nice as well (hint: make sure both colors fall within the same color family as in winter, spring, summer or fall.
If this is for an important meeting a Red tie is known as the power tie and directs attention to you (on days like this do not wear blue).
Great colors that go well with black suits that every guy should keep in their closet: gold, red, gold and yellow.
When wearing stripes make sure the stripes on the tie are different then the stripes on the suit. It is very hard to do a trio stripes with your tie, suit and shirt but not impossible.
Try with patterns and ones that are expressive, but not immature expressive but shows and enhances the look.
