Like almost everything in menâ€™s fashion, corporate dressing, too, has undergone a transformation. No longer is it considered dreary, boring and oh-so-dowdy (unless you dress that way, of course). Itâ€™s now chic, elegant, classy and creative as well. A lot of menâ€™s fashion rules have been broken and the scene is at its exciting best. MensXP takes a closer at corporate dressing for men and tells you how you can get as creative as you desire.
Shirt and Tie Combination
Matching shirts and trousers are done to death. But if you throw in a bold contrasting tie to liven up your outfit, you make a solid statement. A bold, eye-catching tie becomes focal point of your outfit and itâ€™s your signature. This is definitely a tie thatâ€™s striking and is practically a conversation piece. Add this to your corporate wardrobe and youâ€™ll give the boardroom a run for their style.
You can wear a bright pink tie like the one in the picture. If pink isnâ€™t your cup of tea, choose a bright red; itâ€™ll make a statement… and how! Matching your shirts and ties sheds more light on shirt and tie combinations.
Jacket And Shirt Combination
This is one combination that you can work to your advantage. Think of funky shirts â€“ polka dots, floral, checks or stripes and teams your shirt with your jacket. This look has a polka dotted shirt teamed with a black jacket and off-white pants. The key here is getting your primary colours right and ensuring that they complement one another. Once you get that sorted, you can play at will when it comes to the print on your shirt.
Waistcoats are often considered as part of your ensemble when it comes to corporate and/or formal dressing. However, allow it its time in the fashion sun, and it makes for a compelling look without the jacket. Itâ€™s not convention, but itâ€™s unique and creative. If you want to stretch the limit of boldness with this outfit, choose a bold coloured waistcoat and trousers teamed with a subtle shirt.
Thereâ€™s so much you can do right with the gingham shirt. The shirt itself is a statement. But, when you pair it with matching pants and a complementing jacket, you have a corporate look thatâ€™s unique and oh-so-classy.
Ties are a statement, but sometimes going tieless makes an ever bigger statement, especially when you wear cufflinks on your shirt. Has this look been carried off well? Of course it has. Has this look been worn by a lot of men? Of course it hasnâ€™t. Should you try the tieless look with cufflinks? Of course you should.
