The pocket square is definitely an art, but once mastered it really puts your suit over the top. Below are 2 easy ways to wear them.

1.) If you are worried about your pocket square being too formal, swap your slacks for jeans and ditch the tie. The pocket square can bring in color or pattern just like a tie but on it’s own it’s the perfect balance of formal and casual.

2.) Matching a pocket square can seem daunting. To avoid taking it too far, go for a multicolored pattern and choose one of the more subtle tones as an accent color to use throughout your look. Adding a pocket square is an easy and subtle way to coordinate your look with your date’s too.

| WEARING | : NAVY BLAZERNAVY SUIT PANTS [TOTAL SET UNDER $150] | BLUE BUTTON DOWN | KNIT TIE | BELTDRESS SHOES | SUNGLASSES | NAVY WATCH (SIMILAR STYLE FOR $100)

If you take yourself and your career seriously, your style will follow suit. Dress for success and the job every guy wants starting with 4 simple pieces.

1. Slim fit suit: A slim cut suit is fresh and sharp and the first key to looking like you are on top of your game.

2. Tie options: When it comes to a great tie collection, it’s not just about colors. Mix up widths, textures, and prints (think knits and cotton ties) to keep your office style from getting stale.

3. Boss watch: Wear the type of watch that makes you look like the boss, or better yet the boss’s boss.

4. Briefcase: Every guy should own a briefcase for the office – it’s like a rite of passage. Embrace it with something sleek, like this classic leather look or this one for under $200.

Last of all, make sure you feel good and comfortable. If you don’t, it’s going to be a long day.

Up your office style with a few more of my favorite pieces below.

Although the calendar might say summer is still 3 weeks away, the temperatures say otherwise. It’s hard to want to wear anything but swim trunks and shades when it’s over 90 degrees outside, but for those occasions where pool-side attire just doesn’t cut it, swap your swimsuit out for a more polished pair of shorts.

Don’t rely solely on slacks for those occasions that require a more sophisticated look. Add a few sleeker elements like a lightweight blazer and a classic boat shoe to transform a casual look into a sleeker one while staying cool in the summer sun.
