With the autumn and winter seasons now upon us, as well as some workers beginning to return to work after long periods of working from home during the measures to control the pandemic, you may feel like it’s time to invest in some smart new clothes for the office. Whether your workplace has a formal business dress code or a more relaxed business casual code, a good brand to choose for your work wardrobe is Burberry. While Burberry may be better known these days for their more trend-focused streetwear and casualwear, their pedigree in terms of smart men’s clothing is strong, and they make for the perfect choice if you want a fashionable, youthful flair to your suits and other work attire.
Here we take a look at a few pieces from the latest Burberry menswear collection which could make for the ideal additions to your professional wardrobe for autumn and winter of 2020:
Grey Wool Slim Suit
The fashionable slim cut of this suit gives it a stylish edge and also makes it a good cut for young professionals who want something classic and professional looking without feeling like they’re wearing a dated style more suitable for older men. The slim cut is flattering on most body types, in spite of its name, and can give a streamlined look to more muscular or heavy frames when tailored correctly. The suit is made of virgin wool and features a single-breasted design on the blazer, which has surgeon style cuffs. While Burberry is a British fashion house, this suit, like many of their wool pieces, is made in Italy with Italian materials.
This slim suit is available in a choice of colours, but the grey option is an excellent choice for the coming season. Its neutral colouring makes it easy to pair with just about any shirts, ties and accessories you want, making it more versatile than the blue option, and it is a muted and fashionable colour that makes for a less stark alternative to the black version. This grey will look good on all skin tones and is a colour that will also make the suit appropriate for occasions like weddings and formal parties, as well as for work. You can look at this suit and all of the other great Burberry clothing for men listed here at SSENSE, who have a curated collection of Burberry menswear for the new season. . They’re a popular retailer for high-end fashion, and they carry all of the biggest luxury brands. So, you can not only find these sophisticated Burberry items for men here, but also all of the designer shoes and accessories you need to complete your looks.
Navy Cashmere Burnham Polo
If your workplace has more of a business casual dress code, it can still be important to have a good suit in your line-up for important meetings or interviews, but you’ll want some less formal items for everyday wear that still give you a professional look. This luxurious polo shirt is an excellent choice, with its flattering cut, deep blue color, and high-quality cashmere texture. Polo shirts are pretty much the perfect staple for a smart-casual wardrobe all year round, but for the autumn and winter seasons, the touch of cashmere and the dark color of this one makes it a really stylish choice. As well as being great for work, this is also the kind of polo you can wear for drinks and casual days out, so it will definitely add value as part of your wardrobe.
Black Wool and Cashmere Hawkhurst Coat
A stylish coat that can go over your suits and other workwear is essential for the colder seasons, and while you may feel like it doesn’t make much difference if you’re mainly only wearing it for your commute, it really completes your professional look to have a sophisticated wool coat rather than more sporty or casual outerwear to arrive at the office in. This coat has a classic design that makes it a good investment piece that you can keep making use of for years to come, as long as you take the recommended care of it in terms of cleaning and storage. It is made with a wool and cashmere blend in Italy and features a two-button closure that makes it easy to wear over suits either open or closed.
These are just three highlights from the latest menswear range from Burberry, and it is well worth checking out the full collection at SSENSE to see even more stylish items for your working wardrobe, including great accessories like ties and belts, as well as shirts, blazers and trousers.
