Dressing appropriately for the workplace has long been debated. You’ve likely heard a few sayings about it, including “You feel as good as you look” and “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”
These phrases may hold some truth. Research suggests clothing can have a big influence on job performance. One study found that dressing in formal business attire led to an increase in abstract thinking. Additional research implies that wearing a suit or blazer can increase productivity.
Regardless of whether you’re a suit-and-tie organization or a more casual company, we’ve got tips on dressing for success. These business promotional apparel essentials will ensure your staff looks (and feels) great!

This pinpoint oxford, embroidered with your company logo, is made of stain-resistant fabric, helping staff look sharp at all times. Looking for something a little more unique?

- Essential blazers: If there’s one must-have item for a business wardrobe, it’s a blazer. It works with a shirt and tie, and still looks great when worn with jeans or a skirt or over a sweater or T-shirt. The Casual Knit Blazer for men pairs well with an oxford or V-neck T-shirt. The draped open blazer for ladies has a flattering fit and is great for layering over leggings and a blouse.

This Jewel Neck Cardigan for ladies pairs nicely with a button-down and a skirt or slacks. The cotton blend cardigan sweater for men looks sophisticated over an oxford or under a blazer.
