5 Business Casual Outfits For Spring 2020 | Work Outfits Of The Week | Smart Casual Outfits


– I’m Brian Sacawa. You’re watching He Spoke Style, and today five business casual
outfit ideas for spring. (calm music) Business casual is a very
interesting dress code, and how you approach business casual is, of course, dependent on where you work. For our purposes here, let’s just agree that business
casual means put together but not overly dressed up. And this first look is, I think, a great example of
not just business casual, but also how to do
business casual for spring. It’s a very classic look with a classic menswear color
palette of blues and browns. You know, as we transition
from winter into spring, some of the biggest things you should be paying
attention to are your fabrics. Actually, the biggest thing. Flannels and tweeds need to
go to the back of your closet, and your cottons, linens, and frescoes should be coming to the front. That’s practical, lighter fabrics will keep you
cooler in the warmer months, and also aesthetic because these fabrics just look like the season. And here, the jacket is
a great example of that. It’s in a silk-linen
fabric from Suitsupply. It has an amazing texture, it’s subtle, but it also kind of really
stands out at the same time. I paired it with an ice-blue
Oxford cloth button up shirt, which is from our MTM
collection with Michael Andrews. My trousers are a cotton-linen blend, they’re from a brand called Incotex. They have a really great off the rack fit, definitely recommended. Simple white-pocket square. On my wrist is the Vacheron
Constantin Traditionelle. Brown swede belt is by Luca Faloni, and then finally finished off with a pair of brown suede loafers, these are the Mr. Casual by Belgian Shoes. Up next we have another
super classic look, especially for spring. This one is all about
color, and again, fabrics. Starting with the jacket, it’s from the HSS Michael
Andrews Collection. Part of a suit but because it is in a hopsack weave fabric, it can
easily be worn as a separate. Hopsack has many great qualities, especially when we’re
talking about spring style and spring business casual style. Its got a little bit of
texture, which dresses it down, and it’s a very cool fabric, both literally and figuratively. Also want to point out that patch pockets give
it that more casual feel. Underneath, we have a cotton shirt in a spring-like color, light pink. It’s not solid, it’s
actually a micro-stripe, I don’t know if that’s
gonna show up on the video, but I like it because
I think it compliments the texture of the jacket
even if it is very subtle. Trousers are cotton,
they’re by Ring Jacket. I need to get them
lengthened just slightly, I brought them to the cleaners
and they shrunk a little bit, just wanted to get ahead of that. Again, simple white pocket square. Cartier Tank Americaine on the wrist, and then anchored by a pair of suede tassel loafers by Morjas. Next look here is little bit
of a variation on a theme. It’s a very similar color
palette to the first look. Actually, it’s exactly the same but the vibe is completely different and that is because we
are replacing the jacket, which you’ll remember
it was a tan silk-linen, with this long-sleeve polo. It’s amazing to me how
different this one change makes the entire outfit feel. In a way I think it skews
it more to the casual side, but it’s still elevated
and very put together. One of the biggest reasons for that is the fabric of the polo, it’s a cashmere, long-sleeve
polo from Luca Faloni. Cashmere doesn’t really
seem like a Spring fabric, but this is lightweight
enough that it works, and, you know, there are cooler
days in the Spring as well. Underneath, we have the
exact same foundation as the first look: ice-blue,
HSS Michael Andrews Oxford cloth button-up,
and navy Incotex trousers. Keeping a more business, dressy
vibe here with the watch, it’s Rolex Datejust, 36
millimeters, Jubilee bracelet. And also the shoes, these
are the Fifth Avenue by Allen Edmonds. Alright, this look I’ll admit,
you’ve probably seen before if you’re a fan of the channel. I love this combination; it’s simple, it’s classic, it’s easy,
it always looks good, and because it is so
simple and so classic, it leaves room for subtle variations that can tweak the overall
feel ever-so slightly. I’ve done that in one specific way here to play into the more business
casual side of things, but before we get to that, let’s go over the foundation of this outfit. The jacket with the subtle blue windowpane is by Reiss from a long time ago. We’re gonna try to get a
similar style in the shop. Two button, peak lapel, flap
pockets with a ticket pocket. It’s part of a suit but I
think it works even better as a standalone sport coat. Trousers are by Ring Jacket, got the two-inch cuff on the bottom. Shirt, simple white poplin,
HSS Michael Andrews. And then the tie, which is sort-of the more casual aspect of this look. It’s a silk-knit tie,
it’s by Gitman Vintage. It has a squared-off bottom which gives it a way more casual feel. Simple white pocket square. On my wrist, again, the Rolex Datejust, and then a great business casual shoe: McAllister wingtip
oxfords by Allen Edmonds. Final look here, it definitely says Spring and definitely says business casual. The business part of the equation, obviously, is the jacket. It’s by Suitsupply;
double-breasted, big peak lapel. Fabric is a lightweight wool and it has a great, subtle
herringbone pattern to it. Wearing a double-breasted
blazer without a tie is tricky, I know it’s not gonna be for everyone. And wearing a double-breasted blazer with jeans is also tricky. But, if you caught my “How to Wear a Blazer
with Jeans” video, all those same rules apply so I definitely recommend
checking that out. Underneath I have my favorite,
ice blue Oxford cloth shirt from our collection, the extra
button unbuttoned gives it that casual feel and
also kind of coordinates with the sweep of the lapel. White jeans, they’re
by J Crew, the 484 fit. Lighter color a great choice for spring and also very easy to pair with
a variety of colors up top. Sunglasses are by Oliver
Peoples, these are the Banks. On my wrist, the Vacheron
Constantin Traditionelle. And then finally, swede
tassel loafers by Morjas. So five different ways to do
business casual this spring. Be sure to pay attention to your fabrics and don’t be afraid to bring
out some lighter colors. Leave your comments down below and rank the looks from your most favorite to your least favorite. Thumbs up, don’t forget to subscribe, hit the bell to get notified every time we publish a new video. Until next time everyone,

  1. Iโ€™ll tell you one thing mate out of all of the other style influencers on YouTube you are without the smartest one.

  2. Clean as always man ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป thank you

  3. Long-sleeved polo shirt by Luca Faloni is on my shopping list! In my opinion the best outfit

  4. One thing stands out to me: All of the trousers seem to be too short by about 1 1/2 inches. Maybe I'm just out of touch (and style) but I think they would look better just a bit longer.

  5. – 4, 1, 5, 2, 3 ! ! !
    – haha i was gonna ask about the pants in #2. similarly, i do think that the white jeans could be tapered and would look better if they were a little bit longer.
    – all the jackets featured were nice, but that last one (DB) jacket really caught my eye!!

  6. Love love love! This video is everything to me. I am a teacher living in Houston so because of my profession and climate I live in I am always looking for inspiration in this category. Because of this bias of mine I wouldn't mind seeing WAY more videos like this one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Nice video Brian. Do you by chance like the Cartier Pasha? I think it's a pretty cool watch. I also think it might be cool if you do some videos commenting on celebrity fashion and watches and stuff.

  8. I always look forward to your look books! Iโ€™m really digging #1 & #3.

  9. I am really looking forward to spring now, especially after I saw the sunglasses in the last outfit!

  10. Love the Blazer in the first look. Unfortunately, the link to Nordstrom isn't working ๐Ÿ™

  11. One of my favorite YouTube influencer..
    Love from INDIA โค๏ธ

  12. Sweet style, smart talk, smooth voice, you're killing it Monsieur ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

  13. Man, I had the weirdest dream about you the other day…

    We're at your house (me and a few other random guys) and you get this giant package in the mail. It's a 12 foot taxidermy alligator.

    Well, we thought it was a taxidermy. It was actually alive (drugged, zip tied and shipped). After cutting off all the zip ties it began to move.

    We freaked out and ran into the bathroom to hide. The gator came after us to the bathroom door and everyone jumped out of the bathroom window and called the police/animal control, whoever. Then I woke up. The end lol.

  14. Great as always!!! May i ask which suit supply fit is the blazer in the first outfit?

  15. Hi Bryan, great video! I've tried several business casual outfits recently and it works fabulous! Only one little question, how you keep your shirt perfectly tucked in? Everytime I stand up from my desk the front part of the shirt tends to come out and create a small bump in front of my belly which is super annoyed. Do you have any tips can share? Thanks. C.

  16. LOVE the 3rd Look. All i need is a Rolex to complete my version.
    Nice haircut btw. ๐Ÿ†

  17. May I suggest we see the rear view of your outfits……just a quick spin around would be good.

  18. Cรณmo siempre excelentes sugerencias, mi favorito es el outfit 4. Gracias.

  19. An interesting topic for me would be that of clothing that do not need to be dry-cleaned. As someone who lives in a place where dry-cleaning is both expensive and impractical, I tend to shy away from clothing that requires dry-cleaning. Do you have any insight on good brands, or pieces for someone like me? I understand if I cannot "request" a video. Cheers anyway.

  20. Great video as always Mr. Sacawa.
    You do know that I love the outfit breakdown, so let's get right into it…
    Outfit #1: Love the outfit. The blazer is absolutely beautiful and comes with a lovely and unique pattern. Surely it's the standout piece in the outfit, and the rest of it being simple is obviously a good way to go.

    Outfit #2: My favourite outfit. Love the light pink shirt with the navy blazer, and the off white trousers give a very unique look and spring-esque look.

    Outfit #3: A marvellous grown up casual outfit. Great for any man above 40.

    Outfit #4: This truly is a classic. My second favourite outfit in the video. I love how simple, elegant and yet how easy on the eye it looks. The peak lapel and the ticket pocket is one of those details that also add a distinct uniqueness to the sport-coat rather than the standard notch lapel and patch pockets.

    Outfit #5: Love the double-breasted blazer, just not sure about wearing it with jeans. Although, this look is my least favourite, I do appreciate your guts and creativity to wear a double-breasted blazer with a pair of jeans and without a tie.

  21. Nothing says sophistication quite like linen. I love linen/cotton blend suits and blazers. I do like the HSS Classic look. I have a number of retro look wider lapel blazers which I wear with a knit blend tie. Your channel is the only channel I tend to watch these days. Solid relaxed unpretentious and mature content. One question Brian. If you could have just one watch which one would you choose? Regards from Staffordshire England.

  22. And the crowd favorite: the hazmat suit for all those troubles that share the same name as popular beers.

  23. Muchas gracias por tu video!!
    Saludos desde Espaรฑa ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ!!

  24. Love your videos. Question: Should Chinos or khakis be ironed with a crease or just slacks? Thanks

  25. Who started the no break pants trend? I remember seeing them first in 1990s on old lawyers paired with tassel loafers. Now it is s fashion forward look. Will not yield!

  26. As always great outfits! An example of a man who knows how to dress well.
    And your watches are beautiful too.

  27. ู…ุจุฏุน ูˆุฌู…ูŠู„ ุฌุฏุง
    ุงุชู…ู†ู‰ ู„ูƒ ูƒู„ ุงู„ุชูˆููŠู‚ ูˆุงู„ู†ุฌุงุญ
    ูˆุงุชู…ู†ู‰ ู„ูˆ ูƒุงู†ุช ู‡ู†ุงูƒ ุชุฑุฌู…ู‡ ุจุงู„ู„ุบู‡ ุงู„ุนุฑุจูŠู‡

  28. Brian, a question….Do you ever wear good dress shoes (i.e., Allen Edmonds) with dark blue jeans and a polo or dress shirt? I don't classify that style as "business casual" per se, but rather "smart casual". Do you agree? I'd love your thoughts on the subject of jeans and dress shoes (brown…not black)

  29. I think the Suitsupply DB looks quite horrible… Not the fabric nor the cut, just the proportions, cut and fit of the collar is idk weird/looks of… Other than that, great video, love the ice blue shirt!

  30. All great outfits, however, that first jacket is a stunner and the last l outfit is so stylish.
    Also, watches really work beautifully with what you're wearing…๐Ÿ‘

  31. Very impressive…but that is what everyone expects from you…class and great deal of sophistication..KEEP up the outstanding information that you give out…don't stop..peace..over and out…

  32. Excellent video, i believe you did a great job on all 5 looks, i especially preferred the first 3, also wanted to say look number 5 is not bad at all, but is one of those outfits that it cannot be pull off by just everyone. Keep it up!

  33. Nice video- it be cool to see a look book on the clarks desert boot, I havenโ€™t seen anyone really do that sort of thing.

  34. Oh man, I enjoy your content so much, really an inspiration! It's great you introduce and reccomend new companies I never heard of . Great job as always !

  35. Difficult choice between number 1 and number 5, I love both blazers. Especially the colour and pattern on number 1 and of course Iโ€™m always weak for a double breasted peak lapel ๐Ÿ˜Œ

  36. Just beautiful, each and every look! I'd like to ask you about your experience with Suitsupply's sizing system. What size do you wear? I love their designs but looking at their shop's pictures the jacket seems a bit short… Is that the case? I'm 1.80 meters. Thank you in advance, Brian.

  37. Always on time with solid content, anxiously waiting the show collection vid, keep it up much respect ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  38. Love the video! Just out of question, why do you decide to have the white trousers so open and loose by the ankles compared to your other trousers?

  39. Great outfit ideas and I really do like the look of the Datejust on a jubilee bracelet!

  40. Great video. Nice blend of colors and textures. They are all great but the navy hopsack jacket with the pink shirt is my favorite.- Cheers!

  41. Great video, I love how you changed up the whole vibe of the 1st and 3rd outfits by just switching the outer layer

  42. Starting with most favorite 5, 1, 4, 2, 3. I like 5 cause it has some Pitti vibe. I like the color combination of 1 and could totally see my self wearing this to the office. 4 would make a great look for a client presentation. 2 got rated lower cause it definitely would be a simple go to. I rated 3 as my least as this look Iโ€™m stating to see as the new CIO uniform. Although yours does look better compared to theirs ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Great looks Brian, but spring being the end of winter, I would have liked to see more boots incorporated into these looks. Rain and slush doesnt combine well with loafers. For the people on the east coast, these looks are amazing looking, but slightly unachievable based on climate alone. However these looks are perfect for the end of spring imo. I am definitely going to try to incorporate some of the elements of these looks later on in May or June!!

  44. Most favorite was look number one. Least favorite was the double breasted jacket. Loved those brown suede loafers though.
