To be a great lawyer, you've got to walk the walk, talk the talk, and work till your eyes bleed. But if you want to feel more like the dapper attorneys you see on prime time, and less like an overworked associate, you need more than just a J.D. and a job. You need a bit of style.
To help you out, here are our top legal lifestyle tips so that you can be the most lawyerly lawyer you can be.
We've all seen lawyers in cheap suits (or, God forbid, pajamas) and let's just say we're not too impressed. But your clothes don't just impact how people feel about you, they can change how you feel about yourself. So if you want that extra boost, make sure you're dressed sharply.
Speaking of dressing sharply, let's start with the basics: fit. If you're one of the lucky few, you might be able to get away with wearing a suit straight off the rack. But if you're like the rest of us, you're probably not proportioned like a mannequin. So consider taking your office clothes to a tailor. And please, never wear a black suit.
Being a lawyer isn't all late-night memo writing and exorbitant tailoring bills. You get to indulge in a bit of fun every now and then, too. Often, that includes a firm happy hour. These are a great way to mingle and relax, but make sure you're getting through the alcohol-fueled social interaction alright by following these tips.
Did that happy hour run a bit long? Don't worry. With a few apps, you can make sure you're set to get home safely (leave your keys behind, please) or able to continue the festivities late into the night.
Nothing is better than the cuddly, drooly, unconditional love of a dog. (Not even children.) But, when you're working 80 hours a week, you'll need to find a furry friend who doesn't require an excessive amount of time and attention. Here are some breeds that should match your lifestyle.
