What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. Many people are returning to work in the office, at least part time. With this anticipated return to a semblance of normal life, In my next few style scenarios I’ll be sharing some ideas to help you return to the office looking stylish and like you haven’t spent the better part of the last year in your pajamas (even if you have).
The Shirt:Brooks Brothers Original Polo Button-Down Oxford – $49.99 ($140). Going with a monochromatic green look up top. The light green shirt color doesn’t stand out too much, and thus is more versatile than many of us would think. Sizes are a bit scattered on this one right now, and is only available in the extra slim “soho” fit (for those of you that got so stressed during the pandemic you lost weight), or the relaxed “madison” fit (for those of you put a little stress weight on). There’s also this light green option from Amazon.
The Tie:Kent Wang Knit Dark Green – $65. Keeping the green monochromatic theme going with a dark green tie that contrasts nicely with the light green shirt. A knit tie brings the formality level down slightly.
The Watch:Orient 2nd Gen Bambino Version I – $105 ($114.99). Clean, simple white face. Automatic movement. A classic dress watch. Considered by many watch enthusiasts to be a gateway into the world mechanical/automatic watches.
