Creative Office Style
Today, many offices have abandoned the traditional “professional” dressed code for something that could be considered creative office style. Suit optional has become a common and expected practice, which is now giving guys options to take risks, while still looking the part.
We dropped one of the most creative offices in Philadelphia — Philly Mag, to show you three-ways to rock a bold suit to work. Their open office concept and beautiful living room space (in the middle of the office) inspired this entire feature.

Rocking a full suit to the office is a somewhat foreign concept in creative office environments. But, when you’re going to rock a bold pattern, you got to add the right pieces to ground it. You’re already going to stand out as “the suit guy”, so take the risk, the right way.
- keep the accessories neutral and solid. Your suit is doing enough for everyone
- pay attention to the dark colors in the plaid pattern. This will guide you tie, pocket square and sock selection
- a brown Oxford shoe is the perfect grounding agent for a suit of this colorway
- opt for a blue Oxford shirt instead of a white. It gives off a warmer tone and complements the purple, green and navy tones in the check pattern
