We’re signing off on the hoodie as an acceptable choice for work. The rules: no oversized, no slogans and keep everything else expensive-looking.
The belt bag
How to give smart looks a modern, streamlined finish? Swap in a belt bag, slung across one shoulder. Extra points if it’s nylon. Double points if it’s by Prada.
The tracksuit: not just for slackers
Under Pierpaolo Piccioli, Valentino has become known for its unstudied approach to luxury, frequently drawing on relaxed, athletic shapes. This season’s soft-shouldered track jacket has all the refinement of a tailored blazer.
The muscle tee
Park the oversized T-shirt for now: 2018’s best collections were a celebration of the beefcake, and this summer’s tees should have a closer fit. Start your push-ups.
