Whether your office is suit-and-tie-only or more rumpled-and-wear-creative, this list can serve you well. Think of this as a guideline, not a set of rules. This is your starting point, and the path you take will vary with profession, location and climate.

  • Navy wool blazer
  • White, light blue, and striped dress shirts
  • Repp and pin-dot silk ties
  • White cotton handkerchiefs
  • Brown and black leather belts
  • Black cap-toe shoes
  • Brown wingtip shoes
  • Tan topcoat

  • Tan or navy windbreaker
  • White, light blue, and pink oxford shirts
  • Navy and heather grey polo shirts
  • Heather grey v-neck tees
  • Navy or camel lightweight cotton v-neck sweater
  • Navy or camel Merino wool v-neck sweater
  • Tan chinos
  • Dark wash straight-cut jeans
  • Navy and tan shorts
