Style chats to businessman and search engine marketing guru, Michael Bell, on how to dress for success.

Do you think a good suit contributes to success in business?

For me yes, a good suit gives me confidence, as the saying goes self-confidence is the best outfit!

How would you describe your style?

Professional and clean cut, but I still like to keep my coastie roots alive with shorts and t-shirts on the weekends.

Whose celebrity style do you admire?

Either David Beckham or Ryan Gosling.

What’s your most indulgent fashion purchase?

Tag Heuer watch.

Your best budget buy?

Adidas high tops I picked up in NYC for USD $40.

What fashion trend will you never try?

Suit pants that show your ankles, it’s like putting hubcaps on a Ferrari.

What do you think is the most important thing for women when it comes to dressing?

Dress comfortable. When you’re comfortable you’re confident and nothing is more appealing than a confident woman.

Has your style changed since starting Search Factory?

A lot. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast where fashion went about as far as boardies and a singlet (laughs). Big city living and owning an agency has definitely broadened my fashion horizons.

Boxers or Briefs?


Where can we find you….. On a Sunday morning?

It really depends on my Saturday night (laughs), but when it’s hangover free, usually on Mt Coot-tha, mountain biking, doing something water sport related or grabbing breakfast out.

On a Saturday night?

Either heading out in the Valley/City with my wife and mates or on the Sunshine Coast seeing the family.

On your next holiday?
