Men’s style guide: Perfecting office wear

Dressing for the office in the modern day is all about maintaining a smart and streamlined look, even when going casual.

While the days of a black suit, shirt and tie are no longer mandatory, you still need to look the part and give off a professional look. Your work attire will say a lot about who you are, and since you’re spending most of your weekly time in the office you need to be well presented.

Anatomic & Co has created a complete guide to office wear and perfecting your office dress code.

 

Smart wear office

While most offices these days don’t require you to wear a suit and tie, dressing formally does not go unnoticed – it shows you mean business. A suit always looks good while maintaining a touch of class.

Tips:

  • Opt for a grey or navy suit as this gives off a professional look
  • Keep your suit slim and well fitted to be on point
  • Brogues or Oxford shoes polish off a professional look

If you’re not up to wearing a full suit, you can wear separates. This will give off a more relaxed look, while still maintaining sharpness.

Tips:

  • Pair more casual clothes like chinos with a suit jacket
  • By not adding a tie you will create a smart casual workwear look
  • Switch a button up shirt for a fitted crew neck T-shirt or jersey
  • Keep it simple – a black or grey jersey or a white T-shirt will be just enough to tone down your look
  • Brogues, Loafers or even smart casual trainers will complete your look

If you work in a laid back casual environment, a fitted pair of jeans can more than hold its own. But remember, you still want to look professional, so avoid ripped or baggy jeans. Add a classic fitted plain tee or one with a simple pattern and you’re good to go.

Tips

  • Keep things simple and go for dark blue or black jeans as these always look the smartest
  • Smart casual trainers, Chelsea boots or loafers will up your professional casual look

 

With these simple tips you’ll be more than set to suitably dress for your office. If you want your coworkers and clients to view you as a professional, you should always stick to the  guidelines mentioned above. You’ll be well on your way to impressing the right people in the right places or inspiring those who look up to you.

Men’s shoe guide: Styling your loafers for summer 2018

A staple for the modern gentleman, the loafer has become suitable for both formal wear and casual occasions.

Being laceless, they’re practical, and with plenty of styles on offer – from traditional versions to luxuriously finished horsebit loafers – there’s something to suit every taste.

But how do you wear this stylish shoe for different occasions?

Here’s what you need to know when styling your loafers this summer.

 

Patent Loafer

If you need to look impressive for an occasion, the patent loafer is for you. The patent loafer works great for formal events, such as weddings where you can wear them with a suit. This summer, pair some black patent loafers with a slim fit black suit and a crisp shirt, and your summer wedding outfit will be sorted.

Our pick: Lorenzo Sheep Skin Black

 

Penny Loafer

The simplest and arguably the most sophisticated of the bunch is the penny loafer. They look smart, professional and can finish off an outfit with class.

Penny loafers can be worn to the office or to formal events, and work best with a suit. The classic style of the penny loafer compliments the lines of a well tailored suit. But this doesn’t mean that they can’t be worn with your favourite pair of shorts too.

Our pick: Senador Touch Havana

 

Suede Loafer

Suede is a great fabric for loafers, so long as you keep them in mint condition. Like most other loafers, these work well with suits, however, suede loafers partner better with lighter suits so you’ll need to opt for lighter fabrics. The lightness of the fabric will partner well with the lightness of the suede material.

Heading for a summer holiday to Greece or Spain? Coloured suede loafers are ideal holiday evening shoes.

Our pick: Tavares Suede Navy

 

Snaffle Trim Loafer

A modern classic, the snaffle trim loafer features an added trim across the front creating a sense of fun and personality. This loafer is a great choice for your smart casual events this summer.

When wearing snaffle trim loafers, you should keep the rest of your outfit simple as the snaffle detail will make the shoes the main feature.

Our pick: Cajuru Caramel

 

Driving shoes

Just like loafers, driving shoes are an essential part of summer attire.

Driving shoes with rubber-grommet soles were originally invented for men who wanted extra grip while driving seriously gorgeous Italian roadsters.

Today, driving shoes can be paired with shorts and a polo shirt for a more casual look, or with a suit and tie for formal outings. Driving shoes can be brushed up and made to fit with your personal style.
