I might be transitioning from a dumb retail job to a real grown up (office) job pretty soon. The status quo is basically business casual, so how can I stay true to my fashion roots while still following an office dress code? Links to editorials would be extra super mega ultra uber helpful.

Dior Homme (would be my ideal for that situation, but yeah right)

Haha, I should have put the emphasis on CASUAL.

Slim suits, muted colors, you could wear interesting/bold (but tasteful) ties, or cufflinks. Or shades of grey for the suit instead of black.

I'm all about slim suits, and grey tones, but I think suits might actually be too dressy. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT LOOK I AM GOING FOR. haha ugh

Burberry S/S 09 is my absolute favorite collection of all time. No lie. It brings tears to my eyes.

This was most helpful. Thank you, sir.

where do you live and what is the weather like?

i work in an office but it's such a relaxed environment that I could probably come in with my pajamas if I wanted to. If they somehow implemented a dress code, I'd wear a lot of slim fitting pants with loafers, button-up/oxfords, with or without a skinny tie and maybe a cardigan over that. Or v-neck sweaters too.

Chicago - ice cold for like, 7 months out of the year. It's finally warming up and will be sweltering out pretty soon. I like your suggestions! Thanks.
