No matter if you are heading for a job interview, wedding, date or a court hearing, it is always important for you to look confident and feel comfortable in your own skin. Although we all love to rock our favorite cotton tee with a par of quality jeans, in some situations, such outfits are simply not convenient and can be considered effortless or even rude.

Mind the purpose of the suit

Before you start looking for your ideal suit, you need to consider its purpose. The occasion on which a suit would be worn influences the choice of colors, fabrics and entire design, in general. For example, for a formal event, such as a job interview or a wedding, you should keep your outfit classy and elegant, choosing simple and classical models and dark colors.
