WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Date Night

What to Wear

When going out for a casual date night, a lot of people feel like it’s hard to find the balance between looking completely overdressed and looking like you are ready for a a lazy movie night on the couch! I’m here to say there is a way to dress to impress without looking like you are trying too hard. This Fashionisto’s outfit looks effortless and well put-together at the same time.

Slim fit pants are in for men, just like skinny jeans are in for women! A black, slim fit pant is very versatile and can work for a casual outfit as well as for a more dressier look. This Fashionisto paired his black, slim fit pants with a casual lace up classic shoe, both from Vans. To make the look casual but not too casual for a date night, he paired the pants with a light blue button-down. This button-down was passed down in his family from an older generation, and is still wearable as this classic piece never goes out of style! To complement his pale blue button-down, he added a tan blazer that completes his look perfectly. The blazer was purchased from Buffalo Exchange, which is a vintage and used clothing store. Vintage is TOTALLY IN.

One Simple Change: You could easily make one simple change to make this outfit appropriate for a fancy date night! Instead of pairing the look with a casual lace up shoe from Vans, you could go for a dressier leather lace up shoe.
