Sometimes there is a great dilemma when we dress for work. Do we want to be comfortable or should we dress to the nines? Why compromise? We can always do both. Looking your best at work can be done anytime and it’s always important to look professional because you will certainly leave a lasting impression.
This Fashionisto does it all in his comfortable colored khakis, black button-down shirt, shoulder tote and dress shoes. This Fashionisto’s sunglasses makes him summertime ready and he has his phone handy for easy communication. Personally, I absolutely love colored khakis; they make for a more professional look without sacrificing comfort. I think it is great that more color is being introduced into men’s fashion. I was working at Gap when many of the colored khakis was coming on the scene a few years ago, and I remember being super excited. This Fashionisto adds to his personal style by having his shirt untucked. It makes for a casual Friday look!
You can get this look at home by heading to the mall or ordering your favorite (season appropriate) colored khakis or jeans. Khakis are great because they are extremely work-time appropriate and they have a high comfort level. If you are working in certain industry, colored bottoms may not be the way to go, but if you are just looking for a casual outfit, jeans are great. Next, grab a fitted button-down that will look great with whatever colored bottoms you choose. Black and white go great with almost anything. Be creative once and a while and take a risk by color blocking with another seasonal appropriate color.
One Simple Change: One simple change to this Fashionisto’s outfit would be instead of his black shirt, we could instead wear a white button-down to make the look more sunshine-friendly (in case this Fashionisto is working outside), because we all know black will soak up the sun.
