One of the common dilemmas we face is the challenge of striking the right balance between professional business dress code trends and versatile, after-work style. Finding outfits that seamlessly transition from the office to social gatherings can be a fashion conundrum many of us grapple with.
Imagine this scenario: It’s a crisp autumn morning, and you’re getting ready for another day at the office. You stand in front of your closet, pondering the same question that has haunted countless mornings – “What should I wear today?” You want to look professional and feel confident in the workplace, but at the same time, be prepared for whatever social engagements await you later in the day.
Autumn 2023/24 brings a delightful mix of fashion trends that can cater to both your professional and social life. Think warm tones, comfortable fabrics, and layering options that are both practical and stylish. In a recent visit to the Michael Kors store at Harvey Nichols I noticed that they have skillfully incorporated the current trends into their collections, making it easier than ever to transition seamlessly between the office and social gatherings with confidence. I decided to style a few looks that you can easily steal for your workweek wardrobe.
Men’s Semi-Formal Workwear
The Classic Professional
For men, a classic combination of a blazer with a relaxed fit, white shirt and wool pants in neutral color creates an effortlessly professional look. Pair it with leather sneakers or chelsea boots to finish the look.
Opt for a more casual yet elegant look with a Michael Kors bomber in this rich burgundy color layered over a high-neck knit sweater and smart casual pants in darker color. Finish the look with stylish leather sneakers for a modern twist.
Layer your outfit with a trench coat to keep the elegant vibe of your outfit. It goes equally well with sneakers or formal shoes, with jeans or tailored trousers. This gives you a versatile outerwear option that you can dress up or down depending on the environment you will be at throughout the day.
A Pop of Color
If your workplace embraces a more casual vibe, these burgundy pants offer a contemporary alternative to traditional trousers. The suede jacket adds a layer of sophistication. Completing the look with fashionable sneakers ensures comfort during the day and infuses a dash of urban flair, making this outfit versatile enough for any post-office activities. With this blend of tailored and relaxed elements, you’ll seamlessly navigate the transition from the office to an evening of social engagements.
