Have you ever had a date plan something special for the two of you, and upon inquiring how to dress he responds with, ” Don’t worry, it’s casual”. But is it really? Some men aren’t at their best expressing the finer points of dress codes. What to do?
I say listen to your heart. For me that means, erring on the side of caution, and dressing casual but looking chic. The above ensemble embodies that vibe to the tee. The look’s core elements of cropped black jeans and suede ankle boots with a cowboy feel, paired with a Rosie Assoulin slit sleeve navy sweater (on sale at Moda Operandi) couldn’t read any more casual chic if they tried. The black and navy combo is currently one of my favs and definitely reads stylish.
Tossing on a minimal necklace keeps the focus on the sweater detailing (love those slit sleeves). Gorjana’s layered lariat is fabulous and rings in at under $100, and Isabel Marant’s fringe earrings add a glam quotient to the look. The final touch of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Pashli clutch lends a casual and cool feel.
Now, when he says casual but you want special you’ll both get what you wish for. You can’t get much better than that!
