How did the President, First Lady and First Daughter know what to wear when meeting heads of state, as well as religious leaders? It’s likely that they used the advice of those that are in the know about these things. For the average person, it may take a similar amount of consideration before attending official gatherings – and believe it or not, the tact that goes into dressing right is an appreciated matter that will score points when it comes to business and other important events.
RELATED: Success at business – how?
Here you have the timeless modes of dress, no matter what the trends of the streets:
Both men and women and men do best when opting for a conservative look. Deliberate over your clothes so that your choice:
- Gives you a sharp and professional appearance
- Is not too loud or colorful
- Is conventional enough for the type of people you will be with
Men do well in a classic suit or crisp shirt minus the blazer, tie, and shined pair of shoes.
Women should take care to dress modestly enough to portray a professional and dignified look. Your pick of a shirt, blazer, skirt, dress, trousers, high heels, flats and jewelry is not really the issue as long as it consistently reflects the philosophy.
While every house of worship may differ when it comes to precise clothing protocol, one thing seems to be the standard: modesty that reflects the respectful tone of the atmosphere.
It never hurts to do a bit of research about what is expected. Generally speaking, though, religious services require a more formal approach to dressing for both men and women, with head coverings a matter of tradition. Choose carefully and wear clothing that is:
- Consistent with the decorum of the particular house of worship or event
- Better than casual
- Clean and presentable
- Modest and not revealing
