Even if your workplace has a relaxed dress code, there are probably a ton of unspoken rules that you're supposed to be following. Dressing appropriately for the job is more important than you realise - especially if you work in a large organisation where first impressions count. This infographic explains how to look your best in a variety of business environments; from 'baseline casual' to boardroom attire.

The graphics below were created by our colleagues at Business Insider - but the actual tips are the tailorwork of Sylvie di Giusto, founder of Executive Image Consulting. Simply put, they break down what to wear if you want to impress your clients and/or manager with individual suggestions for men and women.

Needless to say, overdressing can be just as much of a social faux pas as underdressing - so it pays to get a handle on what is expected at your workplace. As a general rule of thumb, di Giusto suggests a linking your business attire to the amount of financial handling you do: “The more you deal with a client’s money, the more traditional and conservative you should be dressed.”

    It's a shame that this guide doesn't include women's clothes that have pockets, allow women to easily run when they want to or sit comfortably with their knees apart.
    Telling women that they have to wear tight skirts and high heels is an old fashioned view of the world and there are lots of other options out there.
