How to Dress for A Casual Valentine’s Day Date
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and we’re intimately familiar with the classic “What am I going to do/get?” conundrum that lots of men find themselves in. Trying to “wow” your partner with a new romantic gesture, year after year, is challenging for even the most creative gentleman.
The good news is that a little bit of thought goes a long way, especially when we’re talking about what you’re going to wear. It doesn’t so much matter whether you dress up or down for a Valentine’s Day date, it matters that you’ve put some consideration into your look.
If your date has taken the time and effort to put on something special, you should do the same. To that end, here are a few ideas for dressing well and maybe even enhancing your sex appeal:
- ‘Pleats’ to Meet You: Pleated trousers are back in, believe it or not, but the modern styles won’t leave you looking like a grandpa. One great way to ensure that you look like a modern take on a classic and not an old fuddy-duddy: get them custom made.
- Bold color crewneck: A recent GQ guide to “business casual” recommended one easy way to dress down an outfit – remove the collared shirt. We love the idea of a classy cashmere crewneck sweater in an eye-catching color, like orange or teal, or even coral (it’s the Pantone Color of the Year, you know). Be bold! Whether you’re sticking with the rest of the suit or not is up to you.
- Butch Cassidy couture: A men’s fashion trend that never really seems to go away is 70s wear, and no one rocked a casual vintage look better than Paul Newman and Robert Redford in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” A suede or leather jacket can turn a simple button-down and jeans into an irresistible ensemble.
