It can be easily worn in the office or at a more casual meeting, and storing a handful of colors means you’ll always be ready to take on the day, too. A good fit makes this style pop so pay attention to the width between the shoulder seams (not too loose and not too tight). The same goes for sleeve length; the cuff should end where the arm merges into your hand.
