I need to do some shopping sometime this week to get some clothes for my sales job, I'm not looking to break the bank on the clothes though. I plan on shopping around macys, khols, and sears.

I need to purchase some long sleaves, dress slacks, and ties.

I'm a red head and don't really tan, from what I have heard I need to get clothes with autumn colors like caramel, beige, burnt orange, gold, darker reds, olive, ivory, camel and browns.

I'm 19 with a mesomorph build, and I just don't know what fit clothes I should get. I want to buy some docker pants but I see they come in different fits like slim, classic, and straight. I just don't know what would be the best.

If anyone has any advice or recommendations that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Don't be tempted to look flashy or trendy, since in sales you want to have credibility. (what kind of sales...?) As a 19-year old it won't matter much.

White shirts, gray or beige/khaki pants, solid ties, etc. would be fine.

"macys, khols, and sears" - sounds like a bad idea. Where approximately are you? Yes, "what kind of sales"?

And no blue and white? Please distrust seasons color advice - it's especially unreliable re work clothing. Although black clothing should be avoided, for multiple reasons.

Also, "mesomorph" and "slim" fit usually is a bad combination.
