Versatility in my opinion is one of the most important aspects for a guy trying to build a stable wardrobe. Unlike women, we guys don’t always have the time or the desire to be shopping constantly for the hottest trends. On the other hand we still want to look good when a last second occasion arises. For this reason having a wardrobe with all of your essentials is key to being well dressed no matter what comes your way. With that being said I want to show you how your glen check suit can be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe so I put together 3 different outfits for various occasions.
Dress like a Boss
We’ve all heard the saying “If you want to be the boss, you have to dress the part” and this can’t be more true. In a recent survey 68% of managers were more likely to give promotions to subordinates who simply looked the part than those who didn’t. Isn’t it time you started looking the part?
I put Stan in a white dress shirt, a black and grey paisley tie, a black waist coat, and a polka dotted pocket square. This look is powerful enough that it grabs attention but subtle enough that people will listen to what you have to say.
Add some colour!
A lot of guys would argue that they don’t need a glen check suit to pull this off and there grey would work just as good. I agree but the plaid print throughout the fabric adds a dimension to your look that a regular grey suit can’t. I also chose to use louder colours like the pink and purple as they make a statement without being too flashy.
For this look I dressed Stan in a pale pink dress shirt, a slim purple tie, a gold collar bar, a silver tie bar, and a multi-colored paisley pocket square. This look is perfect for the office, a wedding, or a night on the town as its fashion forward with colourful subtle accents.
The University Professor
For some reason whenever I see the color brown, a bow tie, and a sweater I automatically envision a post secondary school professor. There something about this combination that screams artsy intellectual that we can use to our advantage even if we’re not.
I styled Stan in a brown gingham check shirt, a green and brown plaid bow tie, a hunter green cardigan, and a crisp white cotton pocket square. This look is perfect for any occasion that you want to look mature and smart with a corky appeal. This outfit would look awesome at events like an art gallery opening, a scholars meeting, or a fashion party.
