Don’t Be That Guy: How to Do Executive Style the Right Way
You Don’t Have to Be the Boss to Wear Executive Style
When I first started my blog, I thought executive style was limited to suits and ties. After all, that’s what I wear. But there are so many other options out there for people who want executive style clothing! At the end of the post, you’ll find a list of resources for where you can buy well-made clothes at affordable prices. You don’t have to be rich or an actual boss; anyone can wear great clothes! It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female; it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor; it doesn’t even matter what your job is (unless your job is in fashion). Anyone can wear great clothes! If you want executive style clothing but feel like it’s inaccessible, read this post and hopefully I’ll change your mind.
Executive Style Clothing Doesn’t Have To Cost a Fortune…As Long As You Know Where To Look
The biggest complaint about executive style is that it costs too much money. It has been said that a man’s suit will cost nearly $700 on average these days (although not all men need suits). Of course, some men may need more expensive suits due do their job requirements (executives typically have higher expectations), but most men do not require such expensive suits unless they work in an environment where “the boss” wears them every day. I have a lot of executive presence, but I don’t need a $700 suit to get it. Instead, I get great clothes from thrift stores and discount stores like Ross or Marshall’s for under $50. My favorite place to shop is the Salvation Army, because they have the best deals of all! When you’re looking for executive style clothing, look in places where people donate their old clothes instead of going out and buying new ones. You’ll save a ton of money that way!
Don’t Be Afraid To Stand Out…But Don’t Stand Out Too Much
Some guys feel that if they wear something that isn’t exactly like what everyone else is wearing, they’ll stand out too much. This can be true sometimes if you wear something very bold or flashy. But there are other times when standing apart from the crowd works well because you take your style from generic office worker to executive office worker. However, before you go crazy with anti-fashion statements (like wearing a tie with polka dots), ask yourself: will this attire work in my field? If so, then go for it! Just remember that being eccentric doesn’t always mean being bad; being eccentric just means taking an unexpected route while still following convention enough to not lose credibility at work.
Executive Style Clothing Can Be Worn By Anyone, Even Guys Who Hate Suits
I often get emails from young men who hate suits because their parents forced them to wear them at all times. I remember hating suits too! When I first started my blog, I hated suits too. But then I realized that you don’t have to wear a suit in order to look impeccable and put together. Instead of focusing on the fact that you’re not wearing a suit (which may make you feel like less of a man), focus on the fact that your clothing makes you look like more of an executive than most other guys out there. It doesn’t matter what type of clothes you wear; if they make you feel confident and present yourself well, then they are executive style clothes! Don’t let your hatred for suits stop you from looking great; just find different types of clothes that work for your body type instead!

It’s full of helpful information about finding clothes which help accentuate one’s strengths while hiding one’s weaknesses.
A Few Tips For Men’s Shoes…What Every Man Needs To Know About Dressing Decently With One Pair Of Shoes
One thing I haven’t discussed yet is shoes.
One of the most important things about executive style is making sure you have a clean appearance at work, and one of the best ways to look put together is to wear a nice pair of dress shoes. If you wear a suit or a business casual outfit, I recommend wearing dress shoes which match your pants. For example, if you’re wearing navy blue slacks with navy blue lace-ups, it looks nice. If you’re wearing black slacks with black lace-ups, it also looks good as long as they match each other well (ie: no brown or burgundy laces on black shoes). This way your feet will still look professional even without socks; which is something I don’t recommend doing unless you have particularly great looking feet (which not many people can say they do).
Of course there are times when people prefer loafers (like me) and boots over lace ups and sneakers over loafers; but that’s another topic for another day!
