Vacation Basics: His & Her Style, from Beach to Boardwalk

It’s time to start packing for those planned-months-ago summer getaways. And if there’s one thing I know, it’s that ensembles need to be tailored to specific activities. (I just gave away that I’m an overpacker, didn’t I?)

Everyone knows what to wear on the sand, so dig out all those bikinis, swim trunks, one-pieces, and board shorts. But when it comes to boardwalk-lunching, pier-wandering, and late-night adventures, the area becomes a little grey. Until now:

Corporate Survival 101

Tips and tricks for the modern businessman

Unknown

6AM: Early morning run. Resolutions aren’t so hard to keep when the music (literally) plays to your own beat.

7AM: Choose a room-commanding power suit (just follow GQ’s tips for each body type) and remember to add accessories. Cuff links and accent socks go a long way.

8AM: Grab a cup of coffee and get to the office early to crush it.

9:30AM: Client meetings all morning. Although this is run-of-the-mill, don’t forget to brush up on your meeting skills to keep things running smoothly.

12PM: Conduct a meeting with senior management. Just don’t forget the fundamentals of business.

1PM: Lunch with the guys. Get away from the office for a quick bite, a walk, anything to help you clear your mind for an hour or so. Studies show that leaving your cube helps you think outside the box.

2PM: Take a client call and work on proposals and paperwork. This time also usually includes tweeting. That’s right – businessmen tweet, too.

6PM: Happy hour with coworkers and dinner on the town. Swap your office attire for a more casual button-down before heading out (yes, this requires planning ahead). Go for something with a fun, printed cuff to stand out from the sea of suits.
