Well dressed man and woman walking through office doors.

Observe others. As mentioned above, a great tip to know how to dress for success at your new job is to simply observe what the current employees are wearing and base your style off of that. However, this is where things can get tricky. You don’t want to be dressing exactly like your fellow employees. Although mimicry is flattery, there is still a line to be drawn. So, on your first day try to show up wearing an outfit that is a bit more conservative than what the other employees are wearing. Of course, if everyone is already wearing suits and ties, then no need to one-up them by wearing a tuxedo. However, if you are working in a more casual environment where jeans and polo shirts are the norm, then show up in, say, khakis and a dress shirt. Then after a couple of weeks on the job, it’s usually safe to shift gears into what everyone else is wearing, with the point being that during your first weeks on the job you are always looking to dress for success and to impress.
