Say NO to formals
Formal dressing adds professionalism and intellect to your personality; however, it is very hard for some of us to like the strictly formal dress code. Everyone likes variation in their life so why not demand variation in our dressing?

You need to pair up your dress in a way that it neither comes in the category of formal code nor in the category of casual dressing. It should be in between the two categories or in short, your attire should be semi formal. When it comes to your look, the major contribution is done by the kind of shirt that you are wearing. For semi formal dressing it is preferable to wear a plain buttoned down shirt. It necessarily does not have to be plain but it does need to be matted. You can buy a shirt with some patterns woven into the fabric and you can buy nice cool colors as it is already spring. Make sure what you buy looks neither formal nor casual. You can even buy matching patterned ties and matching colored cuff links. Then there is the thing that you must consider no matter what code you opt to wear. Your shirt should be clean and your clothes should be devoid of wrinkles and anything which makes you look clumsy and untidy.
Then when it comes to choose between wearing a jeans or a trouser, you can decide to wear which ever fits with your mood. You just need to make sure you wear them right. You can opt to wear jeans – dark colored jeans which look really decent and elegant. Avoid wearing ripped and worn out or baggy jeans to your work place. They would convey a wrong impression about you. When it comes to pants, make sure they are well fitted and you can color coordinate your pants with your buttoned down shirt and other accessories that you choose to wear. For your accessories, you can choose to wear a tie but you should make sure that ties are not formal in nature, you can wear them casually too. However, if you do decide to wear a tie, you can match it up with your shirt. Do avoid sharp colored and printed ties as they are not appropriate.
Make sure whatever you wear and carry is neat and tidy. Clumsiness is not a good trait. Avoid it as much as possible. Buy a nice pair of loafers; it goes with all sorts of dress codes. Whatever you choose to wear, keep in mind that you must not look under dress, semi formal contains formal in it too but ensure it’s not too formal either. Make confidence your companion and you are ready to pull off a great semi-formal attire at workplace.
