Starting a new job can be daunting.
Beyond the typical worries of whether there's anywhere decent for lunch other than Pret or if you'll be able to get any signal for Whatsapp conversations, there's your suit to think about.
But never fear, as this is prime time to reinvent yourself; to leave your shoddy tailoring behind and invest in a brand new work suit. Here are choices to make the best impression on your first day in any sort of office.
For the first job
If you're going into your first job, the chances are you aren't absolutely ballin' just yet. So if you want to save some pennies but still raise the style stakes, go for an inexpensive but still impossibly cool Topman suit.
For making an impression
It's easy to go unnoticed when starting a new job or going into an interview, so to stick in people's minds you need to have something special about your suit. We're not talking about going Great Gatsby pink with your tailoring, but adopting a classic check is an easy and stylish way to be remembered.
For getting the most out of a suit
Grey is probably the most versatile colour for a suit, as it can be paired with black, brown and red shoes. It's also a timeless conservative shade that can be worn to pretty much every office and event going. So if you're looking to get the most out of one suit, this one's for you.
For the professional
Cobalt blue mohair wool, slightly padded shoulders and a silk lining with a skull motif. This is the kind of suit Jordan Belfort would wear now if he wasn't painfully bankrupt.
For the creative
In these modern times not a lot of jobs require you to wear a suit, but that doesn't stop you from reinventing one. If your office would frown on your for wearing a full on suit, then go skinny on the fit, ditch the tie, swap for a printed shirt and add some trainers.
