Shake Up Your Office Style With A Wide-Stripe Shirt

by MR Magazine Staff

Love your job or hate your job (we hope it’s the former), chances are you spend a lot of time there. Which is why we say you shouldn’t be saving your best style moves for after-hours. Instead, start infusing your office style with a little Saturday-night flavor, and you’ll be surprised how much easier it is to get yourself out of bed in the morning. A vertical-stripe shirt is one safe but swaggy way to switch things up. Worn slim and tucked into a pair of equally trim trousers and finished off with derby shoes or loafers, the shirt is leagues cooler than the blouse-like version your dad wore in 1993. Yes, the ’90s are trending, but for the purposes of work, not to mention looking lean, it’s not a bad idea to tread lightly with the throwback vibes. If you’re dying to turn the volume up further (startup guys, hi, that’s you), try playing with interesting color combinations instead of sticking with basic blue, black, and gray. We put together a few pairings below to get the wheels turning. Some are just left of center, some require serious style bravery, and all are a stylish excuse to give your basic blue oxford the day off. Just be sure to pull this office style move on a night when you know you’ve got somewhere to be after work. The beauty of bringing Saturday night into your work wardrobe is that you don’t have to go home and change when the clock strikes 5 P.M. (okay, more like 7:30, 8). See more at GQ.
