No Jacket Required: Sweaters with Authority

When you pull on a sweater for the office, make sure it's the right kind—not some loungy, thumbing-The-New-Yorker-by-the-fire thing, but a thin-gauge, slim-cut sweater that layers as effortlessly over a dress shirt as it does under a jacket. And no crazy patterns or tutti-frutti colors, either—get an understated solid and you'll be able to pair it with anything.

The Smart V-neck

• The collar should be deep enough to expose some shirt but not too much. When paired with a firm-collar dress shirt, it flatters every face.
• Push up the sleeves a smidge to keep your watch in view while revealing a peek of shirt cuff.
• The body should end at your belt line, not spill over it.


The Office Cardigan

• There's no color more sophisticated than gray, and—day or evening—it's always appropriate.
• High armholes keep this from looking like a knit you inherited from Granddad.
• Leave the bottom button or two undone; you want a sense of ease, not fussiness.
