There comes a point in all of our lives when we stop caring too awfully much about our appearance. A trip to the park with our kids is a good example of one of those times. A casual date with our significant other might be another.

But when you’re working with clients, who have entrusted you with the sale and/or purchase of a new home — and hence their financial well being? Well, that’s not one of those times.

To help, we’ve put in some time online to find looks that could and should work for you, whether you’re on a laid-back showing with that couple who wants a vacation property, or a million dollar condo closing. Obviously these are suggestions — you should be comfortable with your style and add personal flair when appropriate. But you can’t go wrong starting here, and they should be available to you no matter where you live.

For the Men:

We’re big fans of blue and we’re big fans of pinstripes. Add them together and, well, we’re a big fan of this look. (via Banana Republic)

We were going to pick just one of these suits, but why bother? They’re all great and look equally good over a button-up and tie or a T-shirt, depending on the occasion. (via Express)

Okay, okay. If we had to pick one it would probably be this one.

Look at this Oxford. We love Oxfords. Your clients will love Oxfords.

You could also reverse the brown and black for an equally classy look.
