WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

Weather in the Midwest is trying its hardest to warm up. With that said, adding layers and light fabrics to your look is essential. For the weekend go-getter, outfits should be simple yet functional. When beautiful weather finally arrives, everyone loves to spend the weekend out and about. For any guy, I think it is important to have at least one pair of jeans that fit properly. Yes friends, this may mean spending some extra cash, but I am a firm believer of investing in staple pieces. A great pair of jeans with the right length and fit will never go out of style and will help build your wardrobe.

This Fashionisto is wearing dark wash, slim fit denim jeans from J.Crew. This style of bluejeans can always be dressed up or dressed down. Rolling up or cuffing your jeans is such a trendy way to transition the look to more of an effortless, hipster vibe. One can not seize the day without sunglasses and comfortable walking shoes. His tortoise shell club masters are timeless, while the sneakers from AllSaints bring an athletic feel to the outfit. The white shoes create a nice balance with the all navy theme. Let’s discuss his cotton shirt from H&M. It is so different from all the denim-like button downs right now. The collarless detail at the neck is so cool, but most importantly it was affordable. This outfit is a no brainer and perfect for the weekend.

One Simple Change: Did your Saturday afternoon turn into a dinner date or a night out with friends? Guys: keep your dark wash jeans on, but switch out your sunglasses, shoes and top. Pull out your favorite neutral, button down dress shirt, lace up some converse, and sport a nice watch. You’ll look put together instantly, and ready to take on your night.
