Will Formal Wear Ever Take a Backseat?

You could argue that over the last 150 years, our everyday style has become more casual. But despite this development, there are still plenty of occasions when women put on their best dress and men are expected to ‘suit up’. This can be for a big social event such as a wedding, but many people are also expected to wear formal clothing at the workplace. So, will formal wear ever really take a backseat?
Professional environment: One of the most common settings in which we have to dress formally is at the workplace. As a general rule of thumb, it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. Your clothing style is often one of the first things people will notice about you. At the workplace, you can use this to your advantage, as you might be able to get noticed for the right reasons. Make sure that you pick a presentable, professional attire that exudes confidence. That way you cannot only make a better impression on your co-workers, you’ll also be able to boost your clients’ confidence in you and your business.

If you’re going to a job interview, then formal attire will earn you respect and credibility. Even if the company advertises a casual dress code, you should always make an effort for your interview as it shows that you respect the company and the person interviewing you.


Weddings: You’ll also need to have formal wear in your wardrobe for weddings. Remember that you can never be overdressed for a wedding. Ladies make a great choice when putting on a formal dress or skirt to these occasions and men can never go wrong with wedding suits from Dobell.

Even if the other guests have chosen a more laid-back style, you’ll still be able to blend in. The best thing to do to avoid any confusion is to simply ask your hosts how formal or informal the wedding will be and if there’ll be a dress code. You can then make a well-informed clothing choice and avoid a potentially embarrassing faux pas. But if in doubt, always go for the elegant dress or the tailored suit.

Even though most people enjoy wearing a casual clothing style in their free time, formal wear is still a very important part of our society and a symbol of respect. Wearing formal attire can also change the way we think about ourselves; it can make us feel more professional and more powerful. So, it looks as if formal wear is here to stay.
