The Combo Bar
Plaid at First Sight
You're three accessories away from making a strong statement this season (but don't let us stop you at three). We huge fans of army green, so this Marshall Plaid tie is an office favorite. For a trendy mix of patterns, pair it with a floral chambray square, pulling out the tie's light blue accent color. Clip on a colored tie bar (always a solid choice), then slip on a denim or brown cargo jacket.
In The Navy
We all look great in navy (it's a proven fact), so you'll be seeing a lot of it in this three-piece pairing. We've taken two popular cotton checks, offset by their difference in size, and rolled them into one rich-colored combo of navy and chocolate brown. Pull on a pair of paisley socks and your favorite dark denim, and don't look back.
From Summer to Fall
Yeah, yeah...we know. It's that awkward moment when the season says "fall," but (at times) the thermometer's still pushing 70. Save the heavyweight wools for when you really need 'em. For now, employ a navy jacket, deep-colored bow tie and chambray shirt (or light blue button-down, if you're feeling dressy). Throw in a pair of polka dot socks and a lightweight, not-fully-fall square.
