WHAT TO WEAR: Date Night

Gentleman, this one’s for you. Regardless of where you are planning to go, there is no excuse not to look your best from head to toe for a date. You probably put a lot of work into picking out what restaurant or café to go to, making reservations and looking up movie times, but don’t let the planning stop there. Be sure to put that same amount of effort into piecing together your outfit and impress your woman by showing up in an ensemble that looks almost as good as hers!

On his way to a casual coffee date in St. Paul, this Fashionisto looks effortlessly sharp. Here he paired his dark Express jeans with a collared sweater layered over a cozy checkered flannel. He finished the ensemble with a pair of Tommy Hilfiger boots. I applaud this Fashionisto for cuffing his jeans. It is a timeless detail that gives the outfit a stylish edge.

This Fashionisto made the right decision when choosing dark denim versus a lighter pair. It instantly dresses up the outfit, while still leaving him feeling relaxed. Layering the flannel under the sweater conveys a sort of sophistication. I’m sure it also kept him warm in the cold Minnesota weather!

It’s not just all about the outfit, but grooming is also vital for a complete date night look. Women check out the details, so don’t leave out putting a little gel in your hair, clipping your fingernails and cleaning up your facial hair. Add a spritz of your favorite cologne before you head out of the door and you’ll be good to go!

From the boots to the collar, this Fashionisto’s ensemble was perfectly put together for a cozy and romantic afternoon spent at a coffee shop. Of course, no outfit is complete until your woman is by your side. So guys, take note of this Fashionisto next time you have date night!

One Simple Change: Do you have a presentation coming up in your next class? Leave the sweater at home and upgrade your look with a suit coat. Finish the ensemble by adding a trendy watch, which is an accessory no man should go with out.
