Our Tips on How Men's Business Casual Style Can be Elevated

Oxford Shirts

An oxford shirt made of premium cotton is a must-own, especially in classic white. A great way to add dimension to your overall look is buy wearing oxford shirts with subtle windowpane or pinstripe patterns. And, even if you're not wearing a suit, you can still wear a tie. If you love this accessory then an oxford shirt is a tie's perfect match.

Trousers 

A great business casual outfit is a sport jacket or blazer with non-matching trousers. Ideally, solid black, grey, or navy dress pants are the best choice. Custom King & Bay trousers are the perfect option because wearing pants that fit flawlessly to your body creates a more elevated look. Once you have the foundation of your business casual outfit with a blazer and trousers, add elements such as accessories that will help to reflect your personal style.

Sport Jacket

The little details go a long way when it comes to elevating any look for men. When selecting your sport jacket or blazer, choose interesting details like metal or wood buttons. Men should also choose subtle patterns like pencil stripes, houndstooth, or herringbone. The fit of the jacket should also be prioritized for an elevated look.

Layers

While an oxford shirt is a great choice to wear under blazers and jackets, men can create elevated looks by layering cashmere knits underneath instead. With layering, men can also experiment with different colours, textures, and patterns. Having a wardrobe with subtle textures and neutral colours will help when trying different combinations.
