Want to make your work wardrobe work even harder for you? We’ve got five key pieces that easily transition from the office to dinner/drinks/events scheduled after 5 pm. These classic choices that you can wear over and over are sure to save you time (you won’t have to change) and money (they pull double duty from workday to weekend, too).
THE CLASSIC BLAZER
Whether you’re wearing it to the office for a put-together look or throwing it on for a presentation, a great sport coat can be worn with dress pants, casual twills or jeans. A navy style or patterned sport coat is the perfect topper for a meeting, lunch or an after-hours get-together. Talk about maximum versatility.
A CRISP, WHITE DRESS SHIRT
Worn under a suit, with or without a tie, or neatly tucked into twills or jeans, a tailored white shirt has infinite possibilities. It looks great solo or with that blazer.
Every guy needs a few denim favorites, each for different occasions. You’ll get the most out of dark-washed styles. Try a pair with a hint of stretch for mobility and comfort. Dark styles are preferred if your workplace allows jeans. They also look more refined and can easily be dressed up with that blazer.
UPDATED DRESS SHOES
From oxfords to wingtips, in hi-polish leather to versatile suede, dress shoes can be worn with almost everything today. And these aren’t your father’s dress shoes—many have comfort-enhanced athletic features actually allowing for the office-to-out wearability factor. And they don’t have to be black…we suggest brown––it looks great with tan, grey, navy and denim. Styles like this look great with your jeans and tee or sport coat for a coordinated appearance.
