Clothing Part 1: Dress as sharp as you can for the venue. If you're at a higher end venue—dressing in a suit that fits extremely well on you is a good look. If you're in a lower end venue—a nice pair of jeans and shirt that shows you're fit is perfectly fine.
Clothing Part 2: Ignore all advice from the general population regarding style. The average person will have the top two buttons undone—with an undershirt on display. Pay no attention. If the changes you made are resulting in better confidence—better sense of being, that's all that matters.
Body Language Part 1: Keep an open posture at all times. This means no arm or legs crossing. No putting your hands in your pockets. Don't look closed off. It's okay to be uncomfortable in an environment—but have a welcoming body language.
Body Language Part 2: Maintain a happy mood. And a go lucky attitude. You don't need to be that high energy guy. Just keep your sales demeanor on. And be a happy person!
