Prints Charming: Just Right for Work

In Clothes & Conversation this week, we talked about importance of pattern for the new season ahead. It may be August, but Fall is just around the corner. And updated prints and patterns are an easy way to start infusing your work look with some Fall style. A new tie or button up shirt can work with your lightweight work pieces as easily as your weightier Fall clothes. No matter your work environment, there are patterns that will feel perfectly appropriate, especially with the subtle plaids, moody florals and modern graphic prints that we’ve found.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Wednesday) for our some of our favorites prints and patterns for a night out, and Thursday for casual picks we think you’ll love. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

This glen plaid suit from Polo Ralph Lauren is just the right subtle pattern for the office or an event where coat and tie required. The charcoal Italian fabric has a truly elegant look, with a contemporary fit that is polished and dapper. While it can be worn with a simple white or blue shirt, show off your sartorial know-how by wearing a coordinating pattern dress shirt, along with a solid or striped tie. Black, tan or dark brown suede shoes complete the outfit.

You don’t need to shy away from bolder patterns for the office, as long as they are modern and professional. You can easily check off both attributes with this Hugo Boss windowpane plaid sport coat. The Italian wool is truly luxurious and the contemporary fit ensures it won’t look like your grandfather’s jacket. The rich shades of grey keep it properly toned down and works really well with a spread collar white shirt and a solid grey or blue tie. Just remove the tie and add your favorite dark wash jeans for a night out.

A bold print tie can add just the right statement to a suit or sport coat, and this tie from Barneys New York shows off the dark and masculine way to interpret florals for Fall. The silk dark navy is woven with red, pink and gold that will spice up your navy or grey suits and blazers. The jacquard fabric is heavy enough to beautifully hold up to a cardigan or pullover sweater, too. This is one of our favorite ties of the season.

Brooks Brothers has always been known to dress a sophisticated gent, and their Red Fleece Collection refits that aesthetic for those gents looking for a trimmer, sleek fit. This bold glen plaid wool sport coat has a soft, shirtsleeve construction, giving it a relaxed feel that is ideal for a casual office look. We love how Brooks Brothers styled this jacket, with a sweater and twill pants. It looks just as good with dark wash jeans and a white button up shirt.

You’ll never go wrong with a plaid dress shirt to wear with your favorite solid suits and blazers. And since most gents’ work clothes center around grey, navy, tan and black, this Hugo Boss shirt will work with them all. The shades of blue coordinate with everything, while the contemporary fit and widespread collar create an elegant look – whether you wear a tie or not. When you do wear a tie with it, stick to a solid tie or one that has a lot of spacing between the pattern.

Plaids are not always a gent’s favorite in casual pants, but they can look amazing in dress pants. Brooks Brothers uses a neutral combination of colors in these glen plaid cotton pants that is so easy to wear with all your solid shirts for a work look that’s professional, but not stuffy. Anything from a white or blue solid oxford shirt to a polo in a rich Fall color, like wine, works. The added perk is that they are available in 2 fits – Clark, a modern fit with a straight leg and Milano, a bit trimmer fit that’s still not skinny.

When we are talking about prints, we have to talk about Robert Graham, so you’ll see a few sprinkled throughout our Finds this week. The modern fit and unique patterns, always with iconic contrasting fabrics in the cuff and collar, make them ideal updates that never go out of style. This blue mosaic looking print from Robert Graham dresses up dark jeans for a casual day at the office. It is great on its own but also perks up a navy pullover sweater or a cotton navy blazer.

Fair Isle patterns are fresh and cozy for the upcoming season, and Brooks Brothers has found a wonderful way to bring it into your workweek wardrobe. Layer this merino wool sweater vest over a solid button up shirt and add your favorite flat fronts. We especially like the way it looks when you add a houndstooth sport coat over it for a truly rugged aesthetic that is still so work-right.

Cuff links are an easy way to add a dash of pattern to your outfit, and create a really polished finish to your look. The argyle pattern in these David Donahue cuff links uses sterling silver, mother of pearl, and rich blue sodalite stone to create the argyle pattern that looks great with all of your grey, navy and black suit and sport coats.
