Since summer has arrived, a lot of companies are relaxing the corporate dress code standards. As a woman, we are so enthusiastic to don a cute pair of sandals with our favorite fitted dark skinny jeans and a casual top. What about the men? How can they remain modern and cool, dressed-down, yet still work-appropriate?

In recent discussions with some male co-workers, it appears the Friday “dress down” dress code is a little more difficult for men, especially in the warmer climates. What’s a man to do? The ubiquitous “mandals” (read: man sandals) and sporty sneakers are totally out of the question, as well as those weekend cargos and loose-fitting tees.

So I did a little digging to see what was out there for our fellow male counterparts. I found some possible stylish pieces for the workplace:

Shirts

Pants

Shoes

What are your favorite dressed-down options for the workplace? Do you prefer the well-tailored looks or more relaxed?
