Keeping bedbugs at bayKeeping bedbugs at bayPosted: Friday, January 14 2011 5:22 PM EST2011 01 14 22:22:29 GMT

It seems like bedbugs are everywhere, and they’re not going away. But that doesn’t mean you should throw out all your furniture, or refuse to let family members visit, or spray yourself with toxic doses of alcohol every time you leave the house. A little common sense goes a long way in dealing with the critters.

From Men’s Life Today

So the dress code at your new job is “business casual,” and you’re thinking, “What the ?” Don’t fret, at least not about your wardrobe. Business casual is less straightforward than a suit and tie, but it’s not rocket science. And if you’re smart about it, you can look as sharp as the next guy for a whole lot less.

While it depends on the kind of office in which you work, business casual typically means crisp, professional and sober. “You don’t need a tie, per se, but we’re not talking about sweatpants. Think of the overall look and make the pieces work together,” says Khurshid Begum, creative director for Modern Culture at Oved Apparel and a fashion industry veteran who’s worked for Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani. Here’s how to do it:

Step No. 1: See What You Have

Everyone owns jeans, and if you don’t have a pair of dark, fitted denim, you should. If you work in a more creative environment, the same goes for a pair of simple black sneakers in either canvas or leather, like Converse Jack Purcells or Adidas Stan Smiths. You probably own a few long sleeve button up shirts and a pair of khaki pants as well. These are keepers. “The key here is to look polished, but not too formal. That means your things can’t look too worn in. If you see yellowed armpits or frayed collars, replace the item,” says Begum. For everything else, he says, get thee to a dry cleaner. “Get the wrinkles out and show up looking crisp.”

Step No.2: Fill in the Gaps in Your Wardrobe

If you’re on a budget, keep the colors basic; don’t buy orange pants or green shirts, because you’ll be limited in how you can put them together. Stick to blues, grays and beiges and you’ll get more outfits out of the same group of clothes. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to pair every item you purchase with at least two other items. This is how you build upon your wardrobe rather than just buying more clothes.
