Dressing for success is key in making a lasting positive impression. Business attire is conservative and consists of neutral colored suits and accessories; it is suggested for interviews and business meetings. Business casual, however, may be acceptable for day-to-day attire in some professions. You should stand out in an interview or your job because of your professionalism, not because of your loud or unique clothes!
