Formal events, such as parties and weddings, follow each other during the year. But there is an inevitable event you have to face every day: the business meeting. For someone it may be the worst of all and the reason is understandable. For formal events, there is a safe dress code. But for a business meeting, the situation becomes more complicated: the people you meet are different and you must show your best to everyone, from the secretary to the boss.
The key to these events, no matter the style you have, is to be comfortable with the look. So if you love the casual style like me, the advice is to stick what you know best, combining usual clothes with formal ones. In this outfit, for example, I used a shirt with a creative pattern of Dead Meat, clearly inspired camouflage, combining it with chinos and leather brogue shoes by Timberland, that definitely gives the impression of a more formal look . The long cardigan from H&M replaces the classic blazer, to remain stylish without sacrificing practicality.
Even for a business meeting becomes important directed on accessories, avoiding unnecessary elements. A good bag reveals a must, to avoid full pockets and to carry the various working notes. And the document holder allows you to store and protect your tablet, smartphone and documents. For those who like to take a minimal approach, the Andy document holder by Orobianco has a clean design, a streamlined appearance and a vibrant color that embodies this ethos. Less formal than a briefcase, but more refined than a typical bag, with Andy you reach a good balance between elegance and casual. Thanks to its versatility, it is possible to bring both in the classic position with the hinge facing upward, that similarly to a 12 hours, thanks to the handle made in Made in Italy leather, typical of the approach of Orobianco. Andy is a medium-sized briefcase that appears undeniably professional and that adds an interesting dynamic to look for work.
