The best thing about business casual attire is the versatility it offers travelers. The look can be worn in transit and at your hosting office—which is perfect if you have a meeting right away when you arrive. In this edition of business travel style, a less-is-more outfit for the city commuter this winter.
I styled Vee Travels blog model James in a quarter-zip, mock-neck ribbed sweater from Express, a Ralph Lauren peacoat, Perry Ellis very slim stretch portfolio pants, and to add a little more personality to the outfit, a pair of Original Penguin’s wingtip dress shoes with light blue laces and outsole to contrast the navy pants.
Spruce up your work style this winter by adding a little color blocking to your look. If you haven’t ventured into this trend yet, no better time than the present. Shot before the holidays, I styled Vee Travels blog model James to show you how effortlessly it can be done.
I love accessories, no question about that, and when I saw this Coach commuter bag I knew it was perfect this service-y post for guys who haven’t color blocked yet. Using the typical khaki slacks and a striped button down shirt look, I used the color scheme of the bag to add on the rest of the look.

Wonderful for styling a business casual look, the Montreal-based e-commerce Frank & Oak offers an array of individual pieces that are perfect for fall (and any season really), and they design a new collection each month.
Shooting in the perfect foliage setting of New York’s Central Park, Vee Travels’ newest model, James, sports Frank & Oak’s slim fitting Huntsman’s Wool Blazer in the oak. Paired with a wine purple-colored button down, I topped off the two with a slim flannel plaid tie with the fall color scheme of navy, forest and honey.
Business travel is on the rise again and New York remains the top U.S. destination, so no better location for a business casual look that’s perfect for in the office or on the go—whether it be plane or commuting down the High Line.
If you’re traveling this summer for work, and your hosting office calls for a casual look, have some fun and ditch the khakis or the wingtips and cap-toes. A colorful boat shoe or moc can really put that extra pep in your step, while keeping it prep, and that is what this look was based around.
