Menswear Monday: Wear to Work

Whether you work in a super-corporate office setting or in a more laidback environment, dressing sharply for work should always be top of mind. As they say, “dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.”

If you’re more of a corner-office-with-a-view type, a well-tailored black suit is always an essential. Grab a nice wool coat to layer on to and from work. For more business-casual office settings, versatile separates like a grey blazer over dark denim or slacks are key. So are solid men’s dress shirts that fit close to the body but not overly tight.

Stocking your closet with versatile workwear pieces that mix and match well together is really the foundation of a great work-to-dinner wardrobe. It’s all about sticking to neutral tones, timeless fits, but feeling free to throw in a pop of color here and there for interest!

Last but not least, don’t forget the right work shoes! A good pair of classic oxfords or loafers is your best bet for finishing off that highly successful office attire.

Holiday Party Shoe Picks from Donald J Pliner

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season is officially upon us. That means holiday parties and festivities are just around the corner!

To get you started on thinking about your holiday outfits, we’ve rounded up some of our party-ready picks from Donald J Pliner.

For the fellas, a pair of suede loafers in one of the season’s hottest colors, wine, is a great way to add some color to an outfit. If you want to go more classic, try a simple ankle boot or a dapper monkstrap shoe with a pair of crisp trousers.

For the ladies, we love combining a little black dress with a pair of sexy knee-high boots! A pair of dressy flats is also a comfy way to add ladylike appeal to any party attire. Try pairing any of these with sheer black tights for an even dressier feel.
