If you need guidance or inspiration Matt Bomber as Neal Caffrey in White Collar is my go to guy for professional style!
Men of all ages listen up!
I’ve talked office wear for women, but now it’s time for the men! Okay guys, as usual in fashion, y’all have it fairly simple. There shouldn’t be any excuse for you not to look extra snazzy while working.
Every young adult or working man should own:
At least one classic navy or black suit. When you're at the store, someone should be able to hook you up with the right fit and style for you. Just remember the words classic and fit! You'll definitely regret getting all trendy and no one wants to look like they're in their father's suit they found in the attic.
Own a few fun, but not too fun ties. Avoid cartoon images and sharing your favorite sports team, instead go for a pattern and color you like.
Button up shirts that coordinate with your ties! You don't have to be too "matchy matchy" with it, just coordinate the colors. Also, try wearing a solid tie with a patterned shirt or a patterned with a patterned. The key to two patterns is making sure one is subtle and the other is more bold.
You'll also need spare sets of slacks if possible. My favorite are khakis!
Now add a nice looking belt and dress shoes (black is always a safe choice) and you're almost there!
For those casual office Fridays, a collared shirt with jeans and khakis are perfectly acceptable. It is a lot easier to add your personal flavor in too, cowboy boots, Sperry Top-Siders, whatever makes you feel you!
