Have you recently landed a new office job? Are you determined to not only fit in but also make your own mark where office fashion is concerned? Maybe it’s not a new job at all, rather, you’re just looking to get noticed at work and land that well-deserved promotion. Dressing professionally at the office is always key, but outside of that, there’s nothing wrong with staying up to date on the latest men’s style trends for the office. Looking professional doesn’t have to be separate from looking stylish and fashionable.
So, if you’re ready to give your wardrobe a bit of an overhaul and bring in some new pieces, here’s a look at some of the top style trends you can incorporate into your look.
Printed Slacks – Add Some Personality to Your Outfit
Slacks tend to be the clothing of choice for the office, but that doesn’t mean you have to pick the traditional basics in black, brown, or navy. Why not add a little personality to your work wardrobe and pick up a few of the trendy printed slacks. Plaid and Houndstooth are two very popular options and work well with dress shirts and more casual polo style shirts. Don’t be afraid to play around with different patterns, colours, and textures and really make your own mark.
A Modern and Trendy Twist on the Button-Down Shirt
If your work wardrobe is made up entirely of button-down shirts, then there is no doubt you’re probably growing tired of the same look. Here’s the thing, you can actually look trendy without stepping too far out of the box. Button down shirts is always a good choice for the office, but not your traditional basic Oxford-style shirt.
Think more relaxed, a looser fit, more movement in the fabric, bright bold colours and even prints, and just a more chill approach. If your office allows, you can even leave the top button or two undone and skip the tie altogether.
These more relaxed button-down shirts will still work great with all your regular work trousers, the shirt will just make the outfit a whole lot more stylish.
Don’t Forget to Update Your Footwear
Finally, you want to be sure you update your footwear after taking a look at the latest trends. While there is nothing wrong with loafers or the traditional dress shoe for men, one of the hottest trends at the moment is in ankle boots. Ankle boots are wonderfully versatile in that they can work in the office place with trousers and suits, but also at home with your denim, cargo pants, chinos, and other trousers.
Take a look at the men’s boots from dunelondon.com for inspiration and ideas. There is a wide range of leather and suede boots in various colours and styles, along with heel and boot height. Some such as the Marchmont Lace Up Desert Chukka Boot almost look like a dress shoe but just a little higher. You can clearly see how it could work in even a more business-formal workplace.
As for how to style your boots, you can wear them just as you would a regular shoe in the office. When outside of the office one of the trendiest ways to style them is to roll up your pant cuff just a bit so you can let the full boot show.
Embracing More Personality and Comfort in Your Wardrobe
Taking a look at the latest style trends for the office for men, it’s clear that there is a real push towards embracing more personality and comfort in your wardrobe and ditching those traditional bland styles.
