Guide To Fall Office Attire

Planning and building a fall wardrobe from scratch is not as easy as riding a bike through Central Park. Luckily, we’ve done the work for you. If you want to be the guy at work that turn heads, follow this quick guide to restart your office style.

Classic Navy With A Twist

A well-tailored suit sends a powerful message to your clients and colleagues. You can never go wrong with a two button suit to slim your profile. The classic navy suit should be your go-to suit for meetings, job interviews or those important sales presentations. Our favorite pairing is a white spread collar dress shirt and solid navy tie. The beauty however is its versatility to be worn with all styles or dress shirts including patterns.  When the fall weather kicks in, pair your suit with a light weight scarf for those chilly mornings. 

 

Wool Patterned Suit

Give your style some unexpected depth with a patterned suit.  Keep the look simple, add a simple tie and shirt and let the pattern do the talking. If you are daring, consider a three piece option with a double breasted vest. For accessories, stick with burgundy, deep greens and navy. A pocket square with these colors will work for both your patterned and navy suits. 

This suit option will carry you through Fall and Winter. Having at least one seasonal suit is a great investment. Since you only have the option to wear it a few months out of the year, if cared for properly it will last you for many years to come. 

Casual Fridays

Casual Fridays is an opportunity for you to expand your style and color choices. Trade your suit and tie for a blazer and a v-neck shirt.  If your blazer collection gets worn out you can try a thin cardigan sweater. Add a pair of dark denim jeans and your look will be complete. 

For sweater options, v-neck merino wool, cardigan and an occasional shawl collar will complete the collection.

 

Shoes and Accessories

With office attire, your shoe collection needs more than just  black dress shoes. Since you’re dressing to impress, make your shoes stand out with a unique shade such as deep brown and navy hues.  Expand your collection with loafers, oxfords, derby and boots. Boots are a must for Fall and Winter. We suggest Thursday Boots or Sutro Footwear.  Add a scarf and a hat to your Fall wardrobe and you are ready to rock the office.
