Are you back to boardroom-ready?
Walking back into work after the summer break can be tough, so to help you get your head back into office mode, we have curated five work-ready styles for you. Each outfit is complete with a perfectly matched sock, shoe and trouser combination. With these looks in your wardrobe, we guarantee you will be boardroom-ready, Monday through Friday.
Don’t let the thought of Monday dampen your mood. These blue trousers and bold pattern sock combo are a great way to brighten up a formal look. A peek of mustard in our Shaken and Stirred style sock is perfect for bringing out the warmth in a lighter brown shoe.
Trouser: Try a light blue smart trouser or chino, such as these from Richard James.
Shoes: Tan leather, this style is from Sons of London.
Black trousers are a classic in menswear, and an essential for any wardrobe. Exceedingly versatile, you can dress your black trousers or chinos up or down and they leave you open to match with a variety of shirts, t-shirts or suit jackets.
If you’re looking for a sleek and smart work outfit, you can’t go wrong with a monochromatic grey or black combination. Elevate your look with our Spot of Style in Classic Black, to add in a pop of pattern.
Trouser: Black chino, Spoke London.
Sock: Spot of Style, Black
Shoes: Black Oxfords, Sons of London.
A pair of brown brogues with a grey suit is a stylishly simple look, and perfect to celebrate that you have made it to the middle of the week. Smart brown shoes deserve an elegant burgundy sock, and you can’t put a foot wrong with our Simply Sartorial in Rich Burgundy. An understated, classic ensemble.
Trouser: Grey Slim Fit trousers from Reiss.
Shoes: Brown Semi-Brogues, Sons of London.
It’s Thursday, so there is a strong chance that you’re heading out for the evening after work. This is the perfect opportunity to show some flair, and add a splash of colour with your socks. Our Bloomsbury Orange, with tan shoes and navy trousers is an effortlessly simple look. Keep things smart with a white cotton shirt, and let your socks do the talking.
Trouser: Wool Blend Navy from Reiss
Sock: Bloomsbury Orange
Shoe: Tan Double Monk Strap, Sons of London.
At long last, you have made it to Friday. It’s almost universally accepted that you can dress more casually than usual. For your final day in the office before the weekend, we have matched a simple burgundy chino with a smart suede shoe, to complement one of our favourites, Shaken and Stirred in Royal. All you need to add to this outfit is a bag packed with our weekend essentials, and you’re good to go.
Trouser: Try these Burgundy chinos from Mango.
Shoe: Brown Suede Semi Brogue Oxford, Sons of London.
In a sea of grey, navy and black office attire, be bold. Add a splash of colour or a pop of pattern. Showcase your personality and watch when people take notice, for all the right reasons.
