Men’s fashion has come a long way. Gone are the days of stiff suits being the only option for young professionals looking to make their mark on the world. If you want to work a few updates into your suiting routine then we’ve got you covered.
Here are 5 tips to style your suit and casual blazers.
- Add Ankle High Slacks and Casual Sneakers
Casual Fridays are easy with a pair of ankle high slacks and casual sneakers. To pull off this look, start with a pair of tailored slacks, add your favorite blazer, and a matching dress shirt. Button downs are a great option here. Finally, grab ankle socks – for the sockless look – and casual solid colored sneakers.
- Add A Turtleneck and Chinos
The turtleneck is a fantastic all-around piece that every man should own. They work to dress up ensembles without being so formal they can’t cope in casual settings. Pair your favorite turtleneck with a blazer and chinos for a date night vibe that shows style, grace, and confidence.
- Add Shorts and Casual Shoes
Work casual flair into weekend meetings by pairing your blazer with shorts and casual shoes. This outfit isn’t practical in cooler weather, but it’ll excel in areas where summer is a year-round experience. Put an even more laid-back spin on this style by substituting the collared dress shirt for a solid-colored t-shirt and sneakers, boaters, or flip flops for that Miami chic look.
- Add A Cuban Collar Shirt
A Cuban, Camp, or Hawaiian collar dress shirt, when used correctly, is a nod to savvy style. Pair one with even the nicest suit and you’ll breathe new life into the ensemble, guaranteed. The key to these broad, flat, collars is confidence. Thankfully, confidence is easy when you look this fashionable.
- Add A Hoodie
One of the easiest ways to style a blazer is with a solid-colored hoodie. The blazer can go atop jeans, slacks or chinos. It works with a pair of sneakers or casual shoes. There is really no wrong way to do the blazer and hoodie combo. It’s a great office-adjacent outfit option that travels well. Keep this recommendation handy for business trips that see you meeting informally with your team shortly after landing.
