Choosing the right attire when stepping out is an important endeavor because your style is the first thing that people will notice about you, thus helping them to create a first impression.

A stylish appearance that is appropriate for a specific occasion be it a formal event, dinner with some friends or a night out may have far reaching implications. To put it to perspective, you are more noticeable to your superiors if you have an impeccable sense of style, and meeting a potential spouse when you are dressed well gives you a leg-up as far as first impressions are concerned.
