Follow Suit
Business suits are the trademark clothing for a successful executive. Remember these tips, before you spend a small fortune on getting getting your suits tailored:
• Two to three suits in safe colors like gray, navy, and burgundy will ensure that you aren’t ever stuck when it comes to a formal dinner with an important client.
• Look for classic colors and patterns that are easy to match and accessorize with.
• Go go for fabrics that are not easily crushed. Avoid linen, gentlemen!

Men Wardrobe

Dress Up Your Shirt 
• Formal dress shirts in light colors will go very well with your dark suits.
• Ensure that your wardrobe has at least ten to twelve shirts.
• A few dark colors, a few light ones and a few striped or patterned shirts - and you’re all set for business!

Accessorize Right
While ties convey your professionalism and work ethic but there’s no need to stick to the boring safe ones. use these tips while purchasing your ties and other accessories:
• A bit of flash - good! But don’t go wild with cartoon characters or animal prints.
•  Your ties should reach the middle of your belt buckle. Short ties and ties that are too long are a big no-no.
• Buy ties in interesting patterns, shades and prints to bring some character to your executive wardrobe.

Other wardrobe touches you need are two pairs of leather shoes- black and brown, and two leather belts. Remember - no flashy belt-buckles, and no experimental shoes! I once knew a man who wore bowling shoes under his suits for work. Trust me, he didn’t get very far in his line of work.

Casual Fridays
If your organization has casual Fridays, then invest in two to three fitted, casual shirts in less traditional patterns, a couple of cool sports jackets and two smart sweaters for the winters. Pair these with casual chinos, corduroys, twil trousers or a good pair of blue denims. Casual slip-ons and a good belt will complete your look. These should hold you in good stead when it comes to looking good on casual Fridays without sticking to boring formals. [source]
