Simple Style Tips for Men this Winter
First impressions – they mean a lot. Which is why we’ve teamed up with leading Menswear brand Burton to help you dress to impress on all different kinds of winter dates.
You’ve agreed the time and picked the place, but choosing what to wear is just as important. When you’re surrounded by the fun and festivities of the season, looking your best is just one step to making your dates unforgettable, for all the right reasons. To set you on the right path for dating throughout the party season, we’ve put together our guide to fool-proof festive date outfits fit for any situation.
A relaxed meet-up over a casual drink or a few coffees is an easy, informal way to get to know each other during the day. This is the perfect place for a laidback look with a hint of extra effort. Don’t be afraid to show off your personal style, but maybe save those Star Wars socks for the 5th date. Keep things classic with a comfortable yet stylish jeans and t-shirt combination. Top off with a leather jacket and a pair of smart trainers for a laidback style. Stick to plains and subtle colours to keep looking clean and simple without appearing too try-hard.
Chilly winter days are the perfect excuse to take your date ice skating at a local outdoor rink or get into the festive spirit wandering through winter markets. Always keep the weather in mind as you’ll want to look stylish but not overdone in warm and comfortable clothing. As you’re outdoors, start off with a great coat. Parkas are practical and look the part whatever the weather. Layer up with knitwear, but don’t even think of that hilarious novelty jumper. Christmas may be around the corner but, remember, red and green should never be seen – unless you’re one of Santa’s helpers. Now all you need is a pair of jeans and sturdy boots to keep you snug.
Bars to Impress
Getting together for drinks in a cool cocktail bar can be a good way to break the ice on frosty winter evenings. Stay true to your surroundings and dress casually with smart elements to sharpen up your outfit. After all, who knows where the night will take you? Simply throw on some dark rinse jeans, as these can be easily dressed up or down and go with everything. A blazer is the another simple way to smarten things up. Shirt, t-shirt or fine knit jumper? That’s for you to decide. As for footwear, brogues are always a safe bet and work well with this look.
Dine in Style
When a bit of wining and dining is on the agenda, it’s an obvious invitation to look your best. Showing up at a classy restaurant in a scruffy outfit won’t leave the greatest impression so it pays to make an effort. And by this, we don’t necessarily mean a sharp suit, a mac or trench coat is smart and polished without looking overdressed. However, a crisp formal shirt is a must, as are tailored trousers. Leave the tie for the office to avoid looking corporate.
