What To Wear To A Business Meeting

Business Casual Meeting

For women 

  • Top: Keep it simple with a chiffon shirt, jersey top, turtleneck, or printed blouse. You could layer with a blazer for a smarter look.
  • Bottoms: Suit trousers, chinos, and structured wool trousers are all acceptable.
  • Skirt/Dress: A dark-colored bold bodycon dress, pleated A-line, or midi skirt are some options. 
  • Shoes: Loafers, brogues, pumps, and up to four-inch heels are suitable.
  • Accessories: Light jewelry is the best option. Don’t go for any bold statement accessories or big earrings. 

For men 

  • Blazer: A blazer isn’t always required but it can smarten up any look, making you feel more confident throughout your pitch. 
  • Shirt: A shirt is an essential part of a working man’s wardrobe. 
  • Bottoms: Smart trousers or chinos are a safe option (preferably dark or beige). Don’t pull out your summer whites for a business meeting – no matter the weather. If you’re in a startup or the creative industry, jeans could be suitable as long as they are dark denim with a straight cut (no skin-tight or ripped jeans).
  • Shoes: Chelsea boots, brogues or formal shoes are all a great option in brown, black, leather, or suede.
  • Accessories: A belt is a must and should be worn with every outfit. A watch is also a nice touch but make sure it’s not too flashy. 

Formal Meeting

For women

  • Top: A cotton or chiffon buttoned-up shirt is always a good option.
  • Bottoms: Tailored trouser suit or wide-legged trousers are suitable in a dark or beige color.
  • Skirt/Dress: Black or tweed pencil skirt that sits no more than four fingers above your knee is acceptable. If you prefer dresses, go for a high-neck A-Line dress that isn’t too short or long, adhering to the four-finger rule.
  • Shoes: Court shoes, brogues, loafers, or pumps are some options. 
  • Accessories:  Wear simple jewelry and pair your outfit with a structured bag.

For men

  • Shirt: Crisp, white, buttoned-up cotton shirts are usually a safe option. However, something with a pattern or simple color is also okay.
  • Suit: A two-piece or three-piece suit in dark charcoal or navy is an ideal choice. 
  • Accessories: A silk tie is a must, as well as subtle cufflinks, a leather belt, and a watch.
  • Shoes: Black or brown oxfords or brogues (don’t forget the matching socks).
