One of the most frequent requests is for looks that transition well from the office to off-duty hours after work. Here’s an example that makes use of a basic menswear color palate and some well-placed accessories.

Plaid Blazer Tan Turtleneck - He Spoke Style

I’ve mentioned before that this was going to be the season of the turtleneck for me. And I’ve been loving it as an alternative to a button-up and tie under a blazer. It’s the perfect combination of dressy and casual chic. Appropriate for the office as well as an after work drinks date. A seamless transition from day to night.

When it’s super cold out, a silk scarf obviously won’t keep you as warm as a heavy wool number. But for those milder days, it’s the perfect finishing touch.

    Great look! I wasn’t familiar with Uniqlo, but I ordered a few turtlenecks after seeing the one in your Statement Topcoat post and love them. Thanks for introducing me to a new source.

    Brian, I really like the nod to Warby-Parker glasses. I have been really impressed with their selection of cost-effective and stylish glasses and sunglasses. Being able to try on pairs in-home to accent different outfits has been a huge plus!
