The new semester is in full swing and with that comes new parties, get-togethers, and you guessed it: dates. When going out for a casual date around campus, sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect balance between dressed up and dressed down. I found this Fashionisto walking out of his house and stopped him on the spot. He is a great example of the put together, yet not too dressed up look that is perfect for a casual date night.
Dark jeans are the ultimate versatile piece for men. They can be easily dressed up for a meeting with a professor or a date night, like this Fashionisto did. Or dressed down for going to class or grabbing a quick bite to eat with friends. In this case, these Citizens of Humanity jeans are dressed up with a charcoal vest over a light gray button down and black tie. This combo is a timeless classic that can give any guy an instantly polished look. He adds a casual touch to his look with a pair of blue Sperry Top-Siders. The shoes were my favorite part of his outfit because they add a carefree feel to his otherwise put-together look.
One Simple Change: Swap the sneakers for dress shoes and add a blazer to take this look from casual date night to giving a presentation in class.
