Turbans may catch the attention of the masses, but a kalgi pinned on to it will steal the show. Kalgi is a brooch for your turban. Establish a prominent look on your turbans with pinning a shinning kalgi to it. It’s real better to go for an ornamented kalgi that would match with the colours of your sherwani.

Go grand with the Pearl mala

These are nothing but the pearl garlands that a man could mount on while in a sherwani. Pearls are highly underrated by men, but men can pair to their sherwani them with utmost poise. The Pearl malas or garlands were traditionally worn by Maharajas on special occasions, not to mention that those were made of freshwater pearls.

Joining a new job? Dress for it

P N RAO - Getting ready for the 1st job

Congrats for your new job! Feeling rattled over the evergreen question: what to wear on your first day of the job’ is quite natural. The last thing any of us want is the way Meryl Streep looked at Anne Hathaway on her first day in the movie “Devil Wears Prada”. So dress according to the demands of your job. You should always draw a fine line between what you think perfect for a Friday night out and for your office.

In most of the cases, there are no well edged rules of what to wear on office. But if you are so bewildered, tread the safe path and go conservative. If you would like to be on the secure side of dressing, then try to understand the corporate culture.

Take a note of these basic points and make your first impression the best one.

” Presentation matters “

Casuals are not a synonym for ‘being disheveled’.

Dress according to the demands of your job – professional, serious and formal

Certain offices come with a strict dress code. In such a case, assembling your office wardrobe will not be a much tedious task. You just have to follow the rules. But most of the offices don’t have a written dress code and it entirely depends on you to get your attire the perfect one for the situation.

You can always look for inspirations even in your office wardrobe. If you are a manager, you can have a look at what other influential managers wear.

The best conventional office attire for men includes a button-down shirt, a blue, black or gray jacket, formal tie, slacks that go well with the jacket and black shoes – well polished.

The unavoidable apparel for women’s office clothing includes the blazer, pencil skirt, button down blouse, slacks or pant suits. Wear minimal makeup. The jewelry should also be simple. You can wear flats or moderate heels, not to say, well polished.

Always keep in mind that your dressing sense in office should highlight your professionalism and competence. You are not dressing for a party. But certain people will confuse the formal and party wear which can even be fatal to their careers. If you look gorgeous in a dress, it doesn’t mean that you should wear the same at your office.

A mistake people do in dressing is wearing clothes that do not fit them. Choose clothing that fits you perfectly without looking baggy or floppy.

In your first day in the new job, or in an interview, appearance counts. Your dress can make a negative or positive impression in your boss. Your attitude and your approach to work are judged through your dress code during your first days. You can win or fail an interview through your clothes.

Mark Twain once said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society”. Appearance renders credibility. Most of us will develop a liking for a best dressed person.  Being well dressed is a beautiful form of politeness. So scale your career to great heights with your attire and attitude.
