Break the Business-Casual Code with These Essentials

It’s a little bit work, a little bit play… seems easy enough. But somehow, business-casual is a dress code that can stump even the savviest dresser.

Turns out, the equation can generally be solved with four wardrobe standbys: a sport coat, a button-down, chinos, and loafers. Scroll on for three takes on this foolproof combo.

Any day

Start with some true basics—a white button-down, navy chinos—then layer on a sport coat in a classic pattern. You can even pop in a colorful pocket square if the occasion calls for it.


Travel days

Versatility and comfort should always be the goal when packing a suitcase. Stick with a white button-down, dark brown loafers and a solid sport coat in wrinkle-resistant knit or wool. You can wear ‘em anywhere, with anything.

(Really worried about wrinkles? Watch and learn how to properly pack.)

Casual Fridays

Since “casual” is right there in the name, this is a day where you should feel free to play a little more. Introduce a button-down with a fun pattern, then round out the outfit with lighter or bolder tones that feel a little less serious.
