Of all the styles of menswear, Business casual is the most open to interpretation, especially today when workplaces are changing.
Companies around the world are adopting more casual ways of dressing, which is a welcome change. It’s no longer necessary to use (always) a suit: it’s ok also a soft and comfortable look that is not too formal.
Wear denim in the office
For most men, denim can only be worn on weekends, but their use reduces the formality of a business casual outfit.
When the cold comes, it’s better to choose a darker denim and a thicker material. Skinny jeans by find, available up to size W40, stand out in their simplicity from the typical blue suit.
Dress in shirt
Dressing for the office doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a blazer. The shirt/jeans combination can indeed be a great alternative to a boring two piece. However, it’s important not to make bad choices. For this reason it’s better to keep the shirt on a soft color like white and to play with some small, non-invasive pattern.
The long-sleeved shirt by Goodthreads I chose for this outfit has for example a small illustration with mountains and trees that is repeated on all poplin cotton.
An alternative to the blazer for a business casual outfit
As a replacement for a blazer, the beauty of a bomber jacket is that works just like a blazer, decreasing the formality without compromising the appearance of professionalism.
The bomber jackets are available in a wide range of styles, but those in Aviator style are made to have a more modern fit.
The Amazon Essentials men’s bomber jacket, for example, has a minimal design that makes it much easier to put on a shirt. It has no traditional pocket on the arm, has a slimmer cut and it’s not padded: it’s just a jacket with a nice cut and a different material.
Now you are ready for a modern and safe look!
