When shopping for a suit don’t be afraid to ask the salesperson for help when choosing a garment. You can also consult a tailor when picking out a suit.

Women wearing hijab and/or niqab should choose a neutral color like black or navy to accompany their pant suits. Women opting to wear both the head and gown attire should choose black or navy. Likewise, men wearing a Kippah or a turban should choose one with colors that match their suit’s dark blue or black color. Business Casual Attire
