Mastering the Office Dress Code
Office style can be confusing. Here's how to kill it from the cubicle to the corner office.
Hermosa wool sneakers, $98 by SeaVees
It's 2017 and most workplaces these days have relaxed their office dress codes. But even if you're not wearing jeans and T-shirts on the regular, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the comfort and style of a cool pair of kicks. Sneakers can easily ground a more office-appropriate outfit (be it a dress shirt and a pair of chinos or even a modern suit) so long as they're minimally designed and free of conspicuous scuffs and holes. The idea is to bend the rules slightly with a knowing wink, not flaunt your casualness in the face of corporate drones playing it safe. Here are ten solid options you can wear now and all through the fall.
