Whether you only wear tailored suits, or you’re thinking of getting sized up for your first, you’ll have a similar problem. Once you wear something made just for you, nothing else will ever fit as well, give you as much confidence and/or just plain make you look so good.
Actually, you’ll have another problem too. You’ll look and feel so good that you’ll want to catch that buzz even outside the office. But it’s not like you can go out at night or on the weekend in a business suit, can you?
As it turns out, yes you can. If you know how to take the ‘business’ out of the suit and replace it with a bit of your personal style.
It’s All in the Shirt
One of the problems with wearing business suits in social situation s is they feel, well, to business like. But there’s a quick, inexpensive way to take the stuffiness out of the office uniform and set you up for a night out.
Wear a Bold Shirt
Most tailored business suits are fairly muted in their colours and designs, at least compared to the sport jackets or sweaters you might wear socially.
But the benefit of that low-key look is that it makes the perfect back-drop for making a bold statement with your shirts. The combination of tailored suit styling and bold solids or prints makes the entire outfit at once stylish and fun.
Here are just a few of the shirts we suggest to put this styling option in your arsenal.
- ‘Guitar’ by 7 Downie St. – If you want to go bold, it doesn’t get bolder than this.
- ‘Copper Check’ by Bugatchi – This stylish multi-coloured plaid will go with a variety of suit colours and styles.
- ‘Blue & Brown Bubbles’ by Isaac Mizrahi – Another creative pattern that works with different suit colours.
There you go. Just a few shirts and you can turn your entire business wardrobe into the hit of the party.
