Head Back To The Office In Style With These Men’s Fashion Tips


Are you returning to the office following some time off and are in a bind about what to wear? Join the club. Fortunately for you, we have a men’s style guide that covers each fashion spectrum, ranging from more casual, a little bit of both, to more business. Lets start with offices that allow for a more casual attire.


The first tip is to look around and see what people are wearing. If you see your coworkers don casual jackets, solid T-shirts, solid denim, and clean sneakers, then your office’s dress code leans more casual. When we say more casual, we typically mean clothing that has multiple components to it, be it more details, colors, or designs.

Here is a list of some casual articles of clothing that will fit right in:

  • Washed denim jackets
  • Field jackets
  • Solid T-shirts
  • Polos
  • Sweatshirts
  • Half-zip sweaters
  • Denim jeans
  • Chinos
  • Work boots
  • Minimal sneakers

More Business

Let’s jump to the opposite end of the spectrum and look at clothes that best fit in the more business category. Clothes within this category include matching suits with ties, sports coats with pants, no denim, and no sneakers. If you look around the office and notice that most people are wearing sport coats and button-up shirts, then you are doomed to wear uncomfortable clothing during your time in the office.

Business clothes consist of:

  • Sport coats
  • Button-down collar shirt
  • Button-up shirt
  • Cardigans
  • Turtlenecks
  • Crewneck and V-neck sweaters
  • Cotton and wool dress pants
  • Oxfords, Chelsea boots, and wing tips

A Little of Both

If you step into the office and see neither T-shirts or suits, then the dress code is more than likely a little bit of both. This typically includes sports jackets, polos, chinos, and the occasional tie. More examples of clothes that toe the line between casual and business attire include:

  • Polos
  • Chambray shirts
  • Button downs and collar shirts
  • Half-zip cardigans along with shawl collar sweaters
  • Chinos and cotton dress pants
  • Lace-up boots, desert boots, and loafers
