What do you recommend wearing for a casual Friday at the office?


“My advice for a casual Friday in the office is to use a separate outfit, with beige chino trousers in linen twill, comfortable, fresh and suitable for summer days, or alternatively a blue or alternatively green linen chino. These options are perfectly complemented with a beige or red striped cotton linen blend shirt.

In fact, linen, thanks to the wrinkled effect, which adds sophistication and charm, is perfect for casual Fridays and, in the case of the shirt, combined with cotton it appears fresh while maintaining a more tidy and impeccable appearance.

To complete the look I suggest a cognac-colored calfskin belt: a style detail for true gentlemen.

If you prefer to avoid the shirt, you can opt for a combination with dark beige chino trousers and a blue short-sleeved cotton polo shirt. An option that is still fresh, modern and informal, but with more classic colours. In short, a must for lovers of beige and blue or for those who don’t want to risk too much with bright tones.”

What are the essential accessories to complete this look?

“The accessories that you cannot do without to complete your casual looks are definitely the belt, in particular I recommend the dark brown suede rigorously combined with a suede loafer of the same shade. Alternatively, for a more colorful and lively look, I recommend the cognac-colored version in soft and informal textured leather.

Finally, another versatile accessory is the linen scarf, summery, fresh, in the colors of beige with details and patterns in shades of blue, it will add a note of charm to every look.”

What do you recommend for those who work in the office, but in less formal and more creative contexts?

“For a less formal but more creative work environment, I suggest giving voice to the contrast of colors by risking bolder and more original shades.

So go ahead with warm, lively and bright tones, for example opting for olive green cotton chino trousers with a twill weave combined with a light and breathable orange cotton polo shirt, with a dark brown suede belt to complete the look. ‘outfit.

In fact, cotton is the fabric par excellence to be used in the most casual contexts and is fresh and comfortable to wear in spring-summer.”

The perfect outfit to go from Friday in the office to a post-work aperitif?

“What if, for example, a last-minute aperitif happens after a busy day at work? The right outfit in this case is made up of beige or brown linen trousers with a blue polo shirt, simple but always effective. In fact, this color combination lends itself to both a daily and evening look and will adapt to all aperitif locations.

To complete the look I suggest using a blue brushed leather belt and, to always carry with you, a white cotton-silk blend sweater, light and warm, ideal to wear in the cooler hours of the evening or, why not , to be given to the person of the heart.”

A final style tip to make every outfit unique?

“From my point of view, the uniqueness of an outfit derives from multiple factors: the colours, the combination of garments, the fit… but above all, what makes the difference is ourselves! The confidence we express, the ease, tranquility and awareness are the best character ingredients to accompany the garments we choose to wear!”
