Menswear Part 2: Dressing Up For Date Night (Or Your Holiday Party)

Our special menswear series continues! Now that we are full-swing in holiday party mode, we thought it would be the perfect time to share some basic tips on what every guy should have in his closet as an easy "go to" look for dressier occasions or a date night. 

Start With a Great Shoe

A good shoe is the foundation of every outfit. It's also often one of the most overlooked pieces with men. We recommended picking out a nice leather dress shoe or boot that is comfortable and says something about your personal style.

Button Up Doesn't Have To Mean Buttoned-Up

Dress shirts have come a long way over the years. Just because you opt for a button up, doesn't mean it needs to look (or feel) like a work shirt. Opt for something with a little bit of texture that's a good fit with your body type. Pro tip: most men are wearing their dress shirts a size too big.

Find Your Statement Jacket

Oh so many options! From a blazer to bomber, stock your closet with at least one jacket that is a good option for dressier occasions. Find something that feels true to your own personal style. Balance the look with some great black or dark denim.

A special thanks to our friend/SF everyman, Kyle for sporting the look and Daniel for capturing it!
