Suits are sophisticated, but unfortunately, they are not appropriate for every occasion. That doesn’t mean suits are going out of style.
Once you find the
perfect suit, don’t let it sit in your closet forever, here are some events
where you can show off your new suit.
You always want to
dress your best at weddings. Unless it is noted that it is a very laid back
wedding, you should always wear a suit to a wedding. Even if you do not have a
role in the wedding, as a guest, you are responsible to dress nicely.
Funerals & Celebration
of Life Events
Funerals are never a
fun event to attend, but you should always pay your respects by wearing a suit.
And instead of funerals, many people are holding special Celebration of Life
parties. This is another time you should wear your suit. It is a way to honor
the passing of a loved one or friend.
Graduations or any
special event (hello black tie!) also always calls for a suit. With these
events, they are a little more casual, so you might be able to get by with only
wearing part of the suit. Bring your jacket, but don’t worry about wearing it
all the time. Also, you can probably ditch that tie for graduations.
Business meetings are
when you really need to dress to impress. Not all professions and all meetings
require a suit. But if you are a lawyer, doctor, business owner, manager, or
looking to impress, you should always wear your suit, and yes, with a tie. If
you are ever unsure you might be too dressed for a business meeting, don’t be
afraid to ask your mentor or boss.
Media & Legal
Of course, anytime you
are in a legal setting or appearing in the media, you should put on your suit.
Especially when appearing in court or dealing with legal matters, this is a
time you should never question if you should wear a suit. And if you are
representing your company in any of these settings, make sure you are taking
pride in your appearance with a nice suit.
Remember, if you are
ever unsure of the dress code of an event, simply ask! Or when all else fails,
wear that suit.
