Black & White: New Work Wear Combinations

Well, gents, this isn’t a hard one to figure out. Black with pops of white for work? No matter your style, this one is easy to incorporate into your office wardrobe. And, of course, we’re already doing it one way or the other. Now, though, the color combination is thoughtful and graphic. It doesn’t just mean a black suit with a white shirt. Sure, that’s great. But a plaid or a great stripe really freshens things up. Just a few pieces can update and modernize your look for the office…here are just a few of our favorites.
Check back tomorrow for our after 5 picks, and Thursday for our favorite casual options. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

A black suit is such a versatile piece in your wardrobe - for work, after 5 functions, and any time you’re unsure what to wear (it’s always better to be a little over-dressed than under-dressed). We love Canali’s fit, quality and wonderful Italian fabrics. A classic black suit is an investment for your wardrobe that you’ll have for years, so pick one that is timeless and of the highest value, like this one.

We love this classic black and white herringbone sport coat from Polo Ralph Lauren. There are so many ways to wear it. While Ralph Lauren shows it with a patterned sweater, we have a few other ideas. Add a smart sweater, tie, and classic wool pants, as we’re showing today. Or pair it with charcoal dress pants, a white shirt and a plaid tie. You can even wear it with black washed jeans or flat front twill pants and a washed button down oxford shirt. It is a wardrobe workhorse that you’ll have for years.

From AG Jeans, this pair of black wash jeans offer a faded black look that we really like – it’s just washed enough to not look brand, spankin’ new, yet still crisp enough to be appropriate for a more casual work look. And they look great with this sweater. The Graduate model is a modern fit with a narrow leg.
