The clothing you wear is an important part of how you present yourself to the world. And for many men who work in offices, this is a big issue, since choosing clothing can be a difficult task. However, it is something that needs to be taken care of. The hard part for most guys is the decisions about where to start. Walking into a clothing store can be overwhelming because you don't know what exactly you are looking for. Because of this, the article below will outline a few essential clothing items that you should hit on your spring shopping list in order to make your office look complete.
Every guy should have a few polo shirts in his wardrobe. This is because these shirts are more office-friendly than t-shirts, yet also cooler than your classic long sleeve dress shirts. You can get polo shirts in light colors to match beige khaki which is popular on dress-down Fridays, or you might even want to get dark-colored polo shirts for paring up with regular dress slacks. These shirts are cool enough for the warmer weather, but still have an office-like look to them.
A Lightweight Jacket
You will want to make sure you have a lightweight jacket. This might mean a lightweight windbreaker, but more importantly, you will also want to invest in a lightweight blazer or sports coat. You should look for summerweight cotton or light material. These are both much more warm-weather-friendly. You will be able to wear them in your office and to meetings and not have to worry about getting uncomfortably sweaty during an inappropriate moment.
Casual footwear is also really important for a springtime wardrobe. If you don't have enough proper spring-friendly shoes, you will end up wearing the same pair of dress shoes day-in and day-out. This is not good because you will end up with shoes that get worn down really fast (it's important to rotate your shoes) and you will also not have a varied wardrobe. You want to have lightweight and breathable shoes for the warm weather that will work well in important meetings, but you are also going to want to have fun and casual footwear for dress-down Fridays. In many companies, employees are allowed to dress down, which means they might be allowed to wear casual men's shoes and sneakers. So, you will want to add these to your wardrobe.
