mens business casual
Some mornings the prospect of putting together a men’s business casual outfit that offers comfort, style, utility and versatility can feel like a very daunting task.
As I stare blankly into the closet, a question arises like steam from the coffee cup in my hand.
“Even if you’re dressed in business casual, myself” and “How can I upgrade my wardrobe without spending money on this month’s car payment?”
And perhaps the most important question of them all is:
“In the first place, what is ‘business casual’ in 2022!?”
The definition of the informal office dress code has changed significantly over the years. ::Phew:: Dress shirt without tucks and 5-pocket pants.
Business casual feels more fluid today.
Think about it: famous (or is it infamous?) “Tee-under-blazer” fits, for example. Or the classic Oxford shirt + knit tie + tan chinos combo.
If one thing is clear, what used to run 24 hours a day can now run 24 hours a day…and vice versa! I have a lot of clothes in my closet to wear more time.
Now figure out how to put it all together.
Here are four business casual outfits that look good on any man.
Business casual outfit #1
SG says: Pleated dress pants are back.
Sure, but the last time I wore pleats was at a middle school dance, but don’t let that deter you!
Turtlenecks and sneakers upgrade your business casual wardrobe while providing a ‘cool professor’ vibe that breaks through any office monotony.
Yes, you can wear pleated pants with a sport coat on top if that suits you (no pun intended).just check
Punch your look with the sharpest wingtip dress boots possible, or if you’re feeling extravagant, slip on your best black dress shoes or boots.
Think of this as an unexpected business casual look that you need to keep in your back pocket when you want to freshen things up.

SG says: Business casual should feel casual without looking slovenly.
From there, roll up the sleeves of your dress shirt and slip on your sneakers or loafers.
This look is crisp but not stuffy. Think about it: Thanks to the pant’s performance element, you’ll feel like you’re wearing sweatpants to a status meeting with the comfort you don’t know.
Business casual outfit #3
SG says: Navy chino pants are a staple of business casual for a reason! Wear it with a luxuriously sophisticated pullover and a performance knit shirt for the perfect one-two punch for work.
Combined with sneakers, it firmly maintains the “casual” area of business casual. Or change his shoes and boots for a lace-up dress on the day of a client meeting.
Business casual outfit #4
SG says: Sure, there are plenty of suit-less business casual look options in 2022, but sometimes it’s fun to ditch it.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful wool suit worn in a way that makes you feel totally modern and yourself. Like the knitted polo shirt above and chunky suede boots.
