Every Casual Friday in the office is a chance to stray away from your usual uniform into more expressive territory. Despite this golden opportunity to upgrade in style, many of us are fraught with wearing the same old thing in an attempt to “play it safe”. We’re here to show you our favorite casual work outfits for men that go beyond the monotonous button-up with jeans. No matter what kind of office you’re in, there’s an outfit in here for you. Keep reading for outfit ideas that are creative, comfortable AND good looking!
Layer a turtleneck under your blazer or overcoat and pair these pieces with a trouser, chino or jeans. Keep your footwear sharp with a Chelsea boot, or play on the casual side with a sneaker. We love turtlenecks for their nod retro class, as well as their versatility and comfort. For more ideas on the turtleneck, check out our post With a Nod to Sammy Davis.
Alternative to the Denim Jacket
The denim jacket – an otherwise laid-back piece – comes across as elevated when worn in alternative colors (as well as similar-style trucker & structured shirt-jackets in fabrics such as corduroy and suede). These pieces are a great top layer over trousers or jeans, and we love the creative element they bring to any outfit.

Spicing Up the Button-Up
Give the button-up a refresh with an outer layer! A coat, blazer or denim jacket can add interesting texture and silhouette to an otherwise tired outfit.
