HOW TO DRESS
Back to work
Polish up your professional pieces for the new season
Fall has always been considered a time of renewal, linked intrinsically to that unforgettable back-to-school feeling – a reset button is subtly pushed and we update goals, objectives and even our look to greet the season to come
. Whether you are heading up a board meeting, an on-the-go creative type or perhaps a little bit of both, these ensembles are sure to make for versatile, stylish additions to your work week wardrobe.
Formal essentials include the usual suspects – classic pieces that are always on trend though sometimes with a decorative twist. The must-have gray suit can be spruced up with a brightly colored pocket square and diagonally striped tie – add in a tie pin for a subtly elegant touch. This black Oxford lace-up features a micro Canali texture along the upper while the belt and briefcase convey sophisticated simplicity.
- If your field is somewhat more casual, you can mix and match with a blend of laid-back jeans and a wool Kei jacket with three-tone bouclé checks that add a sporty feel to the look. Accessorize with an alternative knit tie and switch out the rigid briefcase with an unstructured version in soft calfskin.
- Formal office environments call for a classic suit – this two-button version features subtle blue pinstripes that add a bit of movement to the ensemble. Pair with a sleek briefcase and Oxford lace-ups.
- For those somewhere in between, trendy but tasteful is the way to go. Start off with a pinstripe two-button suit though choose a slightly more fitted silhouette for a decidedly more contemporary feel. Skip the tie, but not the pocket square and keep the footwear formal to balance out the ensemble.
