Dressing on a daily basis and being stylish does not mean having to continually reinvent the wheel or impress with some mind-blowing accessory. Sometimes keeping it simple and sticking to some great basics are all you need. Here’s an extremely simple business casual look built on a few staple pieces from my wardrobe.
Regular readers of the blog know that I am a huge fan of my khaki cotton suit for the summer (see here, here, and here). It’s an incredibly versatile piece and looks great with just about any color combination. Paired with one of my favorite blue shirts, it’s something that I know will always work even if I’m in a hurry and don’t have much time to think about my outfit.
Picking the right pocket square for an outfit is a topic that is frequently covered. My rule is that it should always compliment the other elements of your look rather than match them explicitly. Ideally, the right pocket square pulls an outfit together into a cohesive whole.
