Sure a relaxed Friday at work may call for a casual button-down, but an untucked shirt can come across as sloppy and unprofessional. Tuck it in, unless of course you’re wearing a polo shirt.
While tight-fitted trousers are a big no-no in our books no matter what the time and occasion, they must be avoided at the workplace at all cost. There is a line that divides tapered, slim-fit trousers and tight, clingy ones, so make sure you’re on the right side. Your best bet would be to wear regular-fit trousers. Slim-fit ones accentuate your waist, hips and thighs, so opt for them only if your lower body is well toned.
Leave massive buckles to the wrestlers and stick to simple, sleek belts when it comes to work. If your belt has a massive logo, an embellished buckle or a studded body, toss it out of your workwear wardrobe for sure. Simple clasps and closures work best with your sharp suits.
Sure, you can wear jeans to work, provided they are straight-cut and dark-wash ones. Light-coloured jeans are strictly for casual wear and give off the impression that you’re unprofessional, no matter how sharp the rest of your outfit is.
Your favourite television character might have worn a hat to work, but that doesn’t mean you should too. No matter what kind of hat it is—yes, even a fedora—wearing one will only make you look like a make-belief sleuth. Do yourself a favour and save the hat for your next vacation.
