We’ve all been there before, walking that fine line between business-appropriate and “too” casual and comfortable attire. There’s also the matter of whether that James Harden-inspired beard of yours will not be a distraction at the office, or if you really need to dial it down a few notches since you’re not actually an NBA superstar who can get away with any kind of self-expression.
Here at UNO, we decode the true meaning of the new and improved Business Casual. Dress to impress in the office with these looks that will up not only your style game but your business game as well. And a well-groomed beard earns you additional style points.
Insert some color into your wardrobe with a pair of maroon chinos. Balance it out by pairing them with neutral tones like blue, gray, or white. Throw in a blazer to dress it up, or just pair it with a short-sleeve shirt for hot summer days. The important thing is to always make sure that your chinos fit you right.
Tired of your fancy wingtip leather shoes? Try wearing sneakers to work (just not that work-out or worn-out pair!) Opt. for the white leather type. Who said you have to sacrifice comfort style?
Every guy who lives in a tropical island needs a lightweight jacket to throw on for those days that they're just lazy to put an outfit together. It can easily turn your look from casual to business casual. Add a pocket square for that extra element of surprise.
One thing that every stylish person owns, both men and women, is a leather jacket. Turn this night-out piece into a business casual staple by wearing it with a long-sleeved shirt, a tie, and a pair of dark trousers. Just make sure your office is cold enough to be able to pull off this look, because we don't want you sweating all over.
