Hi everyone. Im new to forum as well as to dress/business attire. Just a little background....... Im a young physician starting in private practice. For the past 5 years, Ive essentially worn scrubs every day. But all that has changed now. I wear slacks, shirt and tie every day. I occasionally need a blazer to throw on for meetings. In haste, I bought a few blazers, and lots of shirts and slacks without thinking of matching them together. To make things worse, I dont really have the greatest eye for coordinating colors. Hopefully, you guys can help me out with a few issues.

1. I have a grey wool blazer (see pic). I assume I can wear that with any pair of dark pants....black, navy, charcoal, dark grey? Is it okay that most of my pants either have pin stripes or a plaid pattern?

2. When can/should I wear brown shoes (I have a medium/dark brown)? I know that I should wear them with khaki or tan pants, but when else? Most of my pants are dark, except for a pair of khaki and taupe pants.

3. What can I wear with a black blazer? Does it go with khaki or taupe pants? If it does, do I wear black or brown shoes?????

Thanks in advance for the help

Most of these would work, except for black. Black trousers should generally be avoided.

Plaid can be fine as long as you have an eye for matching patterns. Pin-stripes should generally be reserved for suits and not worn as odd trousers.

Depending on the shade, brown shoes can be worn with almost every colour except black.

Not much, a black blazer doesn't really go with anything but jeans.

Nope.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
