Let's Hear it for the Boys

It’s always better to dress up than dress down. No matter the occasion, fitted jeans overrule any cotton sweat pant, and button-ups dominate your high school soccer T-shirts. No matter the situation, whether it be your daily walk to class or a hot date, dress to impress. I’m here to force feed you the honest truth that sweats and athletic-wear are never appropriate outside the gym. You never know who you might run into or what situation will come your way.

This Fashionisto is wearing a heathered-gray henley sweater over a button-up and tie, paired with fitted jeans and leather boots. He finishes his look with sleeked back hair and circular, tortoiseshell glasses. This outfit isn’t necessarily the most shockingly daring, but it’s well put together. The button-up and tie of course dress up the outfit the most, but wearing it under a henley sweater tons down some of the fanciness. This Fashionisto’s cuffed, slim fit jeans also keep this look a bit casual because of the material and wash of the jean. Finally, his perforated leather shoes put a little fun into the outfit with their elongated shape and subtle pointed toe.

This outfit is really easy for any guy to wear. This colors that this Fashionsto chose are great options for those who are looking for a simple business-casual outfit. For a bolder look, try adding a pop of color with the tie. For an edgier outfit, swap out the shoes and jeans for a black fitted pant and lace-up black boots. Anything incorporating a henley sweater and button-up is going to look like you put much more effort in your morning routine.

Try out this look and see how you feel. The worst that will happen is you’ll be the best dressed person in the room.

Hint: Buy the henley sweater in a neutral color so it can go with various outfits. It’s a great sweater that can go with many different looks.
