Carrying work clothes on bike

I want to start riding my bike to work more often especially with the weather eventually cooling down soon. I wear business casual at work, so long sleeve shirt and dress slacks. what's the best way to carry clothes without them getting wrinkled?

Buy clothes that are wrinkle-free or wrinkle-resistant.

Or

Keep them at your office. Then, all you have to do is ride to work and change when you arrive.

More than worth it.

Roll them up rather than fold. I also drop off two weeks worth of dry cleaned dress shirts at the office and leave dress shoes there all the time. All i ever need to take with me on the bike are slacks and socks.

I wear my jacket and riding pants over my fancy work clothes. The sweat stains are only an issue during warmer weather.

I have an Ogio backpack and I lightly fold my dress shirts and pants and slip them into the pockets. Shirts and pants really don't get wrinkled. I leave my dress shoes at work.

for the guys that leave clothes at the office, do you have your own office, or are you like, stashing a change out behind the ficus in the copy room?

I used to put my day's clothes in the backpack loosely packed and folded. Would be slightly wrinkled but never bad enough that I would keep a closet full at work. If I had enough spare clothes I would tho
