3. Layered for the Weekend
As I’ve written in the past, if you invest in the right pieces, you don’t need a large wardrobe to be “well dressed” for any occasion.
Every layer in this casual outfit, for example, can be worn in multiple different ways – to the office, to a date, to game with the fellas, etc.
Bonus Tip: Don’t be afraid to pop the jacket collar when it gets windy. If it’s meant to be used for protection from the elements, feel free to pop it. If it’s merely a decorative collar meant to frame the face (like on a polo shirt for example) don’t pop it. Functionality first.
Bonus Tip II: A slim-but-not-snug crewneck sweater with a subtle knit pattern is a fall essential. With jeans, over a shirt and tie, under a blazer, etc.
Bonus Tip III: These are the same wingtips as above, in a different color. If you don’t have a beefy longwing in your closet, pick one up. You won’t regret it. It’s the same concept – they’re somewhere between dressy and casual.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
