Sophistication is the virtue

You must not over-think about getting the articles of men’s clothing right. You need not buy clothes in bulk for your office anyways. Hence, whatever you buy, choose something that is worth the money as well as the wear. By streamlining your choices, you not only make it easier on yourself but there’s an element of confidence that comes with simplicity. The clothing articles that talk about simplicity, versatility and classiness work and they always will.
Let us now look at the pieces that’ll help you spend a comfortably stylish summer months at work.
1. Tailored pieces
Have you ever clubbed your suit jacket with some other individual pair of trouser? That’s exactly what calls for ‘professionally casual’ dressing. These are the keys to any guy’s secret success. You must not invest a lot in suits because they are expensive and ask for high maintenance too. Try to invest in separates. For example, a navy blazer, some mid grey trousers and perhaps something in a pattern such as Prince of Wales check or a chalk stripe to show that summer’s a time for play, not just work. What do you say? Can you think of something else?
When it is something to do with summers, it gets very important you not only get the fit right but also the colors. You must feel happy with what you wear and not uncomfortable. Having happiness in your head would lead you to peppy colors or pastel shades that are perfect for the hot months. You can try everything from pink and blue to yellow and lilac. Pair them with a pattern textured neutral tie and jacket. In fact, you can also try to do just the opposite of this. Try to pick up a pattern shirt in fabrics like cotton, madras, linen or chambray that gives a quirky touch to your professional dressing. Just remember that if they feature a bold pattern or colour, anchor them with a solid neutral tie.
Denims are a must have for all the males. However, you should stick to simple solid denims rather than opting for embellished or shimmery pairs. On the other hand, you can also opt for beige chinos. They are versatile and would add to your Oxford white shirt or anything else. If this seems a bit too much then, invest in a pair of darker chinos in navy, olive or brown. Maybe even get them in linen – the material drapes amazingly well and, if you embrace the wrinkles, can look even better as the day goes on.
4. Shoes and accessories
If you are planning to fetch some new pairs of shoes, they have to be suede. The style can be anything from Derby to boots. You should also opt for trainers that are very much a happening thing these days. Vans or Converse, opt for anything you like.
5. Men’s underwear
The last but not the least of all the clothing articles for men is their men’s underwear. You must opt for breathable and revealing pairs of apparel styles such as men’s thong underwear or bikini underwear that keeps you comfortable day-in and day-out.
