Why Does It Matter What I Wear to Work -- I'm Just Being Myself

Why is The Classic Navy Suit a Big Deal?
November 28, 2014
Color has unconscious psychological effects. Blue engenders a sense of trust, just as red transmits feelings of passion and sensuality. In black, one appears somber and austere. Since business seeks client trust, this makes blue the go-to color in business. Beyond color, the fit must be right, or the effect of confidence and trust can be lost. A poorly fit suit says "I'm only willing to half-way follow rules."
If you'll have just one navy suit, buy it in a more casual fabric. You can pair the jacket with other trousers and jeans and get triple mileage. If you're adding another navy suit to your wardrobe, consider midnight blue in a formal fabric. You'll have a high powered business suit that can also be used for a black tie event; simply wear black tie attire with the navy suit.
“My jacket feels great!...It’s all about fit.
The fit makes one look better. Equally important, it makes one feel better. And when one feels better, one presents better.”
