The Easy Day to Date Details

Posted by 1 on

blazer1 Women have it easy. Day to date means adding a little more eyeliner, tossing on some stilettos and adding a chunky necklace. Simple. But for guys,  how do you make the transition from day to play when you barely have enough time  to catch the train, never mind make a stop at home? It's not as difficult as you might think. It's really all about the colors and the accessories which are easy enough to toss in your briefcase or backpack. First, if you have scheduled dinner plans with a date or friends after work, that morning select something simpler or darker. Say, a solid purple shirt under your blazer, rather than a paler colored checked shirt. Or if your  workplace allows a more casual look, try a wool sweater with interesting details like a suede front placket which ups your look a notch from a simple v-neck.  Wear this sweater and you don't need to change a thing. If your look is suit by day, try these options:
  • If you don't already have a patterned blazer, try this one from Thomas Dean Co. This navy wool and cashmere blazer has details that make it worthy of both work and play, like the felt detail under the notched collar.
  • Lose the tie, unbutton two buttons (Just two, any more and you're risking a disco label.)
  • Keep the blazer and shirt but exchange the trousers for dark, fitted jeans.
  • Lose the tie but add a scarf, tied like this. (This video is genius for learning how to tie a man scarf.)
  • Like your female counterparts, it doesn't hurt to keep a few things at work like a comb/gel, deodorant, a toothbrush/toothpaste and cologne.
Most important? Enjoy the night. Put down the phone and be present with the people who make your down time worth it.
