How to Dress Up While Traveling for A Business Trip

Sometimes you might be confused about what to wear and how you should dress up before starting your business trip. If you are traveling alone, then there are no worries as you can wear anything you want but when you have a few of your business partners or colleagues then you should take care of your outfit. You should dress up to look good, professional and most importantly, comfortable.

Here is a quick guide on how to dress up comfortably for your business traveling trip:

Opt for wrinkle-free fabrics

It doesn’t matter what type of clothes you wear for your business trip, but one thing you should be careful about is to select the clothes made up of wrinkle-free fabrics. Normally a T-shirt with losing trouser is good if you want to travel alone or a 2 piece pant shirt if you are traveling with professionals. If the fabric of your shirt is wrinkle-free you would feel comfortable as there are no bad linings on your dress due to long travel.

Pick Your Favorite Outfit

You should pick your favorite outfit so that you would be comfortable while traveling. For men, denim jeans along with polo shirt or a t-shirt would be a good choice while for women, a loose trouser and a round neck jersey would be a good choice. Wearing tight jeans for men or women is not a good idea as it would be uncomfortable if the traveling distance is longer than one and half hour.

Dress up with accessories

Having a wristwatch for both men and women is a good idea as it looks professional. Carrying a handbag for girls to keep their most important things with them all the way and for men a handbag or a wallet to keep important visiting cards or small gadgets is helpful.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

You should be very selective about the shoes. As selecting shoes for traveling is very critical. If your shoes are not comfortable your whole journey would be spoiled. Whether you are a woman or a man, your first choice should be the casual shoes which should be easy to wear and easy to remove. The Slip on shoes or suede penny loafers is a good choice as you can easily remove your slip on during security checking on the airport and these shoes are comfortable as well. Your shoes should not be very tight for your feet. Sleepers are comfortable but obviously, it is not a good idea to wear sleepers while you are traveling for a business trip.

Light Jewelry

If you are women, you can’t go out without your favorite jewelry. But remember you don’t need to put so many ornaments, just a bracelet, small earring and a light necklace is good to go. While for men, a wristwatch along with a ring or bracelet on other hand is perfect. Using sunglasses would add beauty to your looks.

Some TIPS:

  • Don’t pack extra things for you which you can get from the hotel or from your official allocated apartment for free as you have to carry the luggage all the time with you.
  • Have a lot of sleep at night before traveling.
  • Make a good hairstyle to look confident.
  • Be aware fro your surroundings and take care of your hand-carry or other bags.

Why Selection of Right Shoes is Important for Men

Shoes play a vital role in making your appearance beautiful and attractive. No matter you are a man or a woman, if you don’t wear the matching shoes with your dress, your whole look will be incomplete and you can’t get the attention of others. While graceful shoes can enhance your looks whether you are wearing an Indian Saree, if you are an Indian housewife, or if you are a working man who has to go to the office every day, your formal shoes plays the important role in making your whole appearance more graceful.

The selection of your shoes is very important, for example, for ladies, a high heel shoe looks perfect with saree whereas ladies can’t wear the same high heel shoe might not look graceful wearing a skirt for office looks. Same is the case with the men. If you are going to a attend an official meeting, you need to select graceful formal boats whereas if you are going for a walk then joggers will be your ultimate selection.

Loafers could be a good choice as well if you are going to a party where you have to wear the casual shoes. The lace less loafers are perfect with a pant with a separate sole which looks beautiful. Then you also have to decide whether your shoes are suitable to be wear with the socks on or not? Usually, loafers are used with the socks on your feet whereas other boats can be used without wearing socks.

The material of the shoes also plays the important role while you are selecting your shoes. Obviously, leather shoes are the ultimate choice for professionals but what type of leather it is, how is the shine of that leather and is it soft or not also very important.

Some shoes are made from special stuff like from the skin of a snake or of an alligator. You can find a good collection of snakeskin loafers or alligator boats on different online stores. These shoes have beautiful patterns on the leather. For example, a snakeskin shoe will have pattern exactly like the skin of a snake which gives an idea to other on the first look that these shoes are made from the snakeskin.

So, whenever you have to select your dress, you have to select your shoes as well wisely that should match with your dress and according to the situation as well. Also, you have to select the color, type and the material of the shoes as well very carefully. Last but not the least, you must take care of your shoes and always follow the instructions from the manufacturer on how to clean your shoes and which cleaning material should be suitable for your shoes.
