How to look good in the business attire dress code, number 2: Make your accessories count

Go with cufflinks and maybe with a slightly darker stone. Brighter colors such as yellow or orange obviously pop more than a dark navy. Alternatively, you can also play with a texture rather than a plain silk tie, you can go with a grenadine tie because it has a wonderful texture. In any case, you want to avoid super bright pink ties or bright orange ties because that is bad looking and over-the-top. Instead, maybe opt for a dark purple maybe with a light paisley on it or a darker bottle green tie with a micropattern. Maybe you want to wear a pinstripe suit and add a knit tie to it. If you do that, go for a solid color that is maybe in the blue family because the texture itself is similar to grenadine but it is a little stronger and it is already some kind of a statement. Do not go overboard and have a two-tone knit tie with your business attire. You could also choose a subtle pocket square. The white linen pocket square is great but having maybe a silk pocket square or a silk wool one with a paisley pattern that picks up the color of your tie is a great addition.

How to look good in the business attire dress code, number 3: Opt for oxblood shoes

Oxblood shoes are very underrated because they are very dark yet they have a really nice color depth. They work well with navy and gray suits and they are just slightly different without being as bright as let’s say tan shoes. Adding a cordovan is a great way to stand out with business attire.
