With a new school year is approaching, it’s very easy to get lost in it all. Before total chaos ensues, why not take a break with that special someone? Set aside some time to relax and enjoy each other’s company (and killer outfits of course) Whether it be a movie, going out to lunch or a stroll through the park, a casual date night could be just what you both need.
This Fashionisto is dressed to impress! His ensemble is the perfect middle ground between dressy and casual, which is what gives it that classic feel. The simplicity is also what makes it. It is in no way overcomplicated, nor does it look like he is trying too hard. His outfit gives off that “effortlessly cool” vibe we all secretly strive for.
The button-down comes in a myriad of styles. With so many to chose from there is truly one for every occasion. However, the button-down is such a versatile piece that many styles can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion. This Fashionisto’s button-down is on the more casual side, perfect for a casual date night. If you’re in the market for a casual button-down, I’d suggest looking for a cotton chambray. Chambray is a great way to get that worn denim look in a much lighter weight fabric.
Now, I’d like to take a minute to point out where this Fashionisto’s pants are. Around his waist, as they should be. His pants are a straight-leg cut, one of the most common and flattering cuts available. The cut is neither tapered or too loose, they’re the ideal simple and classic cut.
His darker blue shoes really tie the outfit together. They go beautifully with his lighter blue top, while almost acting as a pop of color by adding some visual interest. A sneaker or a boat shoe is the ideal shoe in this situation as they are both comfortable and practical. But this doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish. Vans has a vast selection with something for every taste. Whether you’re looking for something like this Fashionisto’s or something a little more quirky, you can be sure to find it there.
One Simple Change: Swap the pants for a pair of cargo shorts and you’ve suddenly got a great outfit for a nice brunch. Trade the button-down for a simple T-shirt for a comfortably casual weekend look. Both changes dress the look down a bit further making it appropriate for a plethora of different occasions.
