WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

December 21st, 2015 at 2:10am

Sweater weather is finally upon us! ‘Tis the season for endless cups of hot chocolate, layers of fuzzy socks and peaceful nights under a fortress of blankets, hiding from all responsibilities. These are already great things to do in your ‘me’ time, but having a significant other around can make them even better (and warmer)! There’s something about the colder months that incites a longing in people: to find that perfect someone to trudge through the winter season with. What better way to narrow down those candidates than to have a date night? First impressions aren’t easy, but the right outfit can really make all the difference.

A guy who knows how to dress well—without the help of his mother—will definitely score some points. This Fashionisto shows off his casual, yet preppy style. He perfectly pairs a navy crewneck sweater with a denim button-up underneath, which is the perfect go-to pairing for a classic preppy look. He rolled up his black skinny jeans above the ankles for another classic touch, which also happens to be a huge trend right now. To finish up the look, he accessorizes with the classics: a baseball cap, a gold watch and some navy oxfords. What I love about this outfit is that it’s so versatile, a complete day to night look. He could wear this going to class, chilling with friends and later, taking his girl out for dinner. Who knows, maybe she’ll even look forward to taking him home to meet her parents because of how nicely dressed he is.

One Simple Change: If you want this outfit to be even dressier but still have an effortless feel that is perfect for a celebration, substitute the denim button-up for a white dress shirt and you’re ready!
