The Working class and the emergence of style:
We are living in a fast-paced world. With an increase in workforces around the world, the style at working places and outdoors is fast changing & becoming more elegant with time. Although not strictly formal in some cases but the workplaces do follow some pretty basic formal attire policies for both men and women. The combination of your clothes and shoes matters every bit, going with an unrelated combination is a big no for you especially when it’s a major event at the workplace or a meeting with the client or a formal party outside. We researched the right trend for you so that whenever you step out in style.
Blue pants and black shoes have been the ideal choice since your grandparents’ time. Some trends never go out of style, blue pants and black shoes are one of them. Blue is the colour of power and authority. When you have that important sales call or that board meeting, blue is the colour of statement and power (Both men and women nowadays are an important part of businesses which run the world).
Blue pants add to your prowess at work. When it comes to shoes black shoes blend in as a perfect match for your casual yet official meetings. Not only it is more professional but also shows your seriousness in the business.

1. The Power dressing and the right selection of Pants:
Are your pants worn with a suit or without it? Does it match with the suit, belts and shoes? Are they comfortable for a long meeting and an after party? These types of questions should always come to your mind while deciding on the pants. The colour and material are two main pre-requisites (Fitting guides for men and women are different).
Men need pants which nicely fit at waist and do not billow nor be tight to the leg, this may cause issues while standing, sitting or on the move. Pleats add weight and you appear heavier in them, it is better to avoid pants with pleats. Also if you’re or aren’t wearing socks, make sure to wear pants which fully cover that area.
Women have different body types and so the definition of a comfortable pant may be different for two women. Pant length is a factor to be considered especially when you are wearing heels or any other footwear. Also, thigh or leg size matters for women. (Some other factors include creases across crotch of pants and fitting. Tight fitting across waist may hamper your comfort or loosely hanging pants)
2. Shoes, the necessary style and comfort accessory we all should have:
A noble person once said: “It is the shoes you wear, tell a lot about your personality” and they were certainly right about it. The toes and the arch of your feet require extra comfort and flexibility so that they can move easily within the footwear also your shoes should have breathability and durability for a good working day or an outdoor experience.
Men should choose formal shoes which have round toe. These shoes will give a more presentable feel and elegant look. The front of your shoe shouldn’t be in contact with your toes and while standing or on the move the shoes shouldn’t have an extra room for a finger behind your feet (you should adhere to the needs of your feet’s size and toes).
Women’s shoes require as much attention as their clothes. Your feet require extra care so it is important to consider the right fit for your feet. Examine the soles and the pay attention to the dimensions of the shoes (get your feet measured properly for this). Also, do check for freeness of your feet within the shoe. Heels can cause further issues for your body, try footwear with flat soles (health of your feet should be the prime consideration).
3. What is the combination of Pants and shoes you should be choosing from?
Colour is what you see and perceive around. When two things blend in perfectly the colours have been taken into account. Contrast and the complementary effect which clothes have on shoes are important in deciding that flawless suit and shoes which you put on for that weekly meeting.
Women have a lot of choices when it comes to combinations for pants and shoes. Business casual looks are an in trend; they strike the right balance and convey a strong fashion statement. Blue pants and black formal pumps with a nice formal white top and a black blazer is the best combination you can have while going for a client meeting (These are the other fun combinations for giving you an extra edge while working).
Men need to perk things up a bit. You should get out of the tonal outfits sometimes and add combinations of pants and shoes which go with your skin and body. It is good to experiment and goes with your imagination; it will work in most cases. Dark denim, khaki chinos or grey trousers go along with any shoes perfectly (Pair your shirts and pants and then decide on the shoes accordingly).
4. Appropriate Style for the appropriate place:
Offices and workplaces have different policies for attires. You need to make sure that you stick to the guidelines of your workplace, following the rules is cool, thank god we have colour with different shades and combinations to work from, we definitely have a lot of combinations and options to choose from.
Men need to understand that they have an understanding of the right attire which suits their needs and comfort at the same time. Wearing the right type of clothing at the right place will add to your persona and will give a good impression to your boss and the clients. Do avoid flashy clothes, wear colours which convey a strong powerful personality. Appropriate hair grooming and clothing for your workplace is a must.
Women, on the other hand have a lot of restrictions at the workplaces. You need to dress powerfully; a little makeup is an okay thing. Over-accessorizing can grab unnecessary attention; it can be avoided by keeping it simple. Thank God for those colour combinations you can easily style in the best possible manner.
