A lot of people love the life of an entrepreneur. Freedom to do whatever you want with your time, freedom to take a vacation whenever you want, and of course, freedom to dress however you want. They believe entrepreneurs can put on jeans and T-shirts to work every day if they want. Of course, there’s nothing further from the truth.

While it is true that you have the freedom to dress however you want as an entrepreneur, it is not always advisable to do so. Top entrepreneurs who have built fortune 500 companies dress up in suits and ties all day because it is important for them to have that corporate look which will make people trust you more and want to do business with you.


In this post, we share some reasons why neckties (at least) are necessary for you if you work in the white-collar world

  • People will respect you more

When people look at you, the first thing they observe is their dressing. No matter how moral or religious a person claims to be, he’ll always judge you by the way you look first. Putting on a necktie helps the person’s impression of you at first and gives you a chance at gaining the person’s audience and even better, their trust.


  • It brings a sense of confidence

Dressing well makes you feel confident no matter where you are, and there is no better way to dress for a corporate service than with a necktie on. When you dress well with a suit and necktie, you communicate that you are confident to whomever you meet that day, be it your future employers or just other people in the corporate world.


  • It communicates to people that you are willing to go the extra mile

Putting on a necktie isn’t easy. It is much easier to throw on a t-shirt and a pair of black jeans. So, putting on a tie communicates that you are willing to do more than the ordinary. The process of selecting the right tie to match your dress, and then knotting that tie is quite tedious, so if you are willing to go through that for your appearance, people see you as hardworking and someone who can go the extra mile. That is healthy for your resume.


  • It helps you look good and professional

Of course, putting on a tie multiplies your good look by two, at least. If you have a necktie on, you will look more professional and like a person of high quality and significance.

The words in this post do not mean to say that those who put on casual dressing are losers or that you become the most important person in the world when you put on a necktie. Far from it. However, you improve your chances of being respected and trusted in the corporate world when you dress with a necktie as opposed to when you dress casually.

So go shopping, and pick the finest neckties for work tomorrow, and see your confidence grow beyond measure.
