As we know first impression is the last impression.

Your attire speaks before you. You should dress up in formal manner.

Men should wear a well-tailored suit in traditional colors such as navy blue, charcoal gray or black, in solid or subtle stripe patterns (e.g., pinstripe). The shirt needs to be a long-sleeve and button-down, preferably in a solid color such as

white or a light blue. The tie can have a small print or color; however, its overall appearance should be conservative.

Socks need to be a dark solid or a small pattern. Shoes need to be leather, and in a wing tip or loafer style. Socks should be matched with color’s paint.


Women should wear a well-tailored suit in colors such as navy blue, charcoal gray or black. Possible shades of green,

maroon or purple can be worn if the color goes well with skin and hair coloring, but be cautious of wearing non-neutral

color pallets. While more conversation workplaces or industries may still prefer that women wear a dress suit (I. matching suited skirt and blazer), a pants suit is now also appropriate for the majority of settings. Skirt lengths always need to be knee length or slightly below the knee. Blouses should be cotton, silk or a nice looking artificial fiber in a conservative color that goes appropriately with the suit. Wear low to medium leather, heeled shoes. Never wear open toe shoes. Always wear pantyhose (even in the summer!).


Keep hair nice and neat. Keep hair nice and neat. There is no specific hairstyle recommended, only that your hair is clean and well groomed.

Women, wear natural looking makeup that will flatter and compliment, not overpower, your outfit. For men, beards and

other facial hair should be neatly trimmed. Also be aware that some industries and organizations may frown on longhair or facial hair.You should not feel sleepy in the office. Look energetic,


Nails should be clean and manicured. Women do not have to wear nail polish; however, if polish is worn, make sure that

it is a natural, conservative color and not chipping off.


Do not wear perfume or cologne as many people have strong, adverse or even allergic reactions to it.


Wear only a conservative amount of jewelry. Also, wear jewelry that flatters but doesn’t overpower. For example, a pair

of stud earrings versus chandelier earrings or a gold or silver band versus a large turquoise ring would be appropriate


Obey the thirteen rule: no more than thirteen accessory pieces – this includes accessories such earrings rings or watch, but also accessories we don’t typically think about such as buttons on jackets.

Dear Priyanka,

As per the dress code policy of organisation it should basically focus on the below points:

1. It should be simple which enhance the personality of individual,

2. Using of Formal dress not jeans t-shirt, sport shoes, slipper etc.

3. It could be use plain or check shirt which improve the impression quality of employee,

4. Setting a dress code in organisation establish professionalism atmosphere in the organization,

5. Dress code make employees identification & unification.

6. The hair style should not be like that which make disturb to the other,

7. Female employee should not be need to wear vulgar dress, shot knee skirt. They should need to wear either sari or salwar-kamiz which will enhance her quality image positively.

While choosing a dress code colour of dress must be chosen like that which highlight the individual image. Dress code build value of employee as well as organisation.

Dress code's importance appear when the same organisation looks outside the organisation, if any unhappen appear with one, other will save/protect him/her by identification of particular dress code. In social aspect dress code shows icon of organization.
