Decoding Modern Workwear

The workwear dress code has evolved from simple suits and ties, so it can be tricky to know what to wear without the easy fall back of a suit. Here’s a few sartorial tips to help guys navigate their 9 to 5 look.

Mix & Match:
Don’t be afraid to break up your suit. Try a blazer with a pair of slim jeans or tailored chinos – tan or navy options are a no brainer when it comes to pants. When mixing colours, a crisp white shirt is a fail-safe option.

Ditch the tie:
If you’re ready to do away with this workplace staple, try buttoning your shirt all the way to the top or leave the top two buttons open for a more relaxed, casual Friday look. Keep your shirt, shoes and jacket polished so as not to appear too casual.

Get the shoes right:
You can’t go wrong with a classic brown brogue or derby style, and you should always ensure your shoe is well-kept and polished. If your workplace is more chilled, cuff your chinos and try a fresh pair of sneakers – and by this we mean a clean white sneaker, not your gym shoes!

The Final Flourish:
Smarten up a plain look with accessories like a classic watch or a pair of patterned stocks. Add a pocket square to your blazer to really up the ante of your outfit and always ensure your belt matches your shoes.
