Choose suit, shirt, tie
Choose a sport coat, blazer, or suit in a subdued color and current style. Combine this with an open-colared shirt or a tie.
Wear a clean, quality cotton, collared shirt. Alternate with fine gauge knits free of wrinkles and avoid shiny, silky fabrics and wild colors and designs.
Choose sweater, change suit
Wear a stylish but understated sweater, or change the look of a suit with varying patterns in the shirt or tie you wear.
Sport clean, pressed slacks, corduroys, khakis, and sometimes chinos in the right climate. Avoid shorts, jeans, or anything with ragged edges or hanging threads.
Choose shoes and belt
Wear leather shoes, clean and polished, and a matching leather belt. Basic dress boots are better than hiking or athletic boots unless the office is full of gamers, geeks, and burn-outs. Leave the sandals and flip-flops at home.
Slip on comfortable, dark, mid-calf length socks that blend well with your pants, so that when you sit or cross a leg no skin shows. Patterns like argyle are fine if they don't clash with stripes, plaids, or other designs in your pants.
Trim your hair so that it looks groomed, even if you prefer the bed-head look, which can look almost intentional with a little product. Facial hair is all right if trimmed, neat, and acceptable in the industry or to your company.
Avoid accessories beyond a watch and a wedding ring.
