Wear to Work: Perfectly Preppy

Just because you’re at the office doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your sense of style. Show off your preppy side with an on-trend sweatervest over a button-down shirt, and spice things up with a pair of cropped pants.  Add a pair of killer flats, and you’re good to go!

Where to Wear: This outfit is strictly Business Casual–it’s good for a polished look at a more casual workplace.  We’d have to recommend skipping this one for offices with more strict dress codes–don’t try this one at Corporate.  The cropped pants, in particular, might raise a few eyebrows. 

Fashion Formula = Button Down Shirt + Sweatervest + Cropped Pants + Flats.

Trendscape: The “Murse”

Based on the runways and the hipsters of urbania, men seem to a bit more comfortable with having accessories that hang from the shoulders.

The concept of the murse (man bags, or whatever you want to call them) is a wonderful middle ground for brief cases, messenger bags, backpacks and duffel bags.  They are perfect for toting around all those necessities you need for a day in the city – wallet, cell phone, iPod, check book, midday snack, Burt Beeswax, Listerine strips, cigarettes, lighter, bottled water, extra pair of socks, passport, 3 forms of identification and for those special occasions – a knife suitable for hunting and skinning.  Whatever you can’t live without, I’m sure a murse can handle it.  Available in any price range, take a gander at these convenient accessories.
