The New Prep

Preppy used to mean a navy blazer and a pocket square. Good news: preppy has graduated. Loosen things up with a luxe cardigan that says, “I’m not too serious”, anchored by a shirt that says, “But I can be when necessary.”

Pattern Play

Bringing fashion into the office doesn’t require going full hypebeast. When you keep your grooming tight, and add a hint of pattern, new silhouettes can feel authoritative, too.

Work for It

Heavy-duty workwear is still having a trending moment – and it can thrive in an office, with a few subtle tweaks. Keep the palette muted and the fabrication substantial, and you’ll find yourself rolling up your sleeves for even the trickiest of tasks.

Rock the DB

The double-breasted suit is a power move that’s aged brilliantly. But, in 2019, it can prove a little stuffy. Luckily, some well-placed accessories – and dress shoes with a little charisma – can give an old swerve new life.

The Man in Black

Yes, monochrome can still look sleek as anything in the office. No, you don’t need a black tie and white shirt to finish the look. Instead, lean towards all things rockier to command new attention in those clutch meetings.
