Invest In A Suit

You don't have to work in the corporate world to own a suit. According to GQ, when choosing a suit, opt for one in a solid true navy blue or charcoal grey. Both colours work with every shirt-and-tie combo you can think of.

Your shoes are one of the first items people notice. For formal occasions, an Oxford is preferable, same as a Monk shoe or Derby. Loafers and Chelsea boots are versatile and can give a smart casual look. For a more casual look, go for desert boots, moccasins or boat shoes.
