But I believe that men should also dress up and pay attention to their look on the "day of love" so I've put together a Look Book for the guys as well.
As with the ladies, I've put together both a Casual and Formal look. Some of these items are on Special so happy savings! Here they are :)
A look can be determined by the nature of the outing as well as the setting and weather conditions. If you're going to be outdoors such as at a seaside cafe' or a picnic in the bush here's a great casual look to try.
Start with a simple tee! This inexpensive Solid MTV T-Shirt in White is perfect for these warmer days and at just R69, it's a winner. Team this shirt with these Firefox Belted Chino Shorts in Green for R199. These shorts are so versatile in that you can dress them down with a plain t-shirt or dress them up in a collared shirt. Complete your casual yet cool look with a pair of these Bronx Rebel Sandals in Black for R449.
The great thing about today's fashion is that formal doesn't necessarily mean a suit and tie with a bowler hat. Lots of establishments are now going for the "smart casual" look which is a bit of casual and formal together. When looking at shirts, I'd say that so long as it has a collar it can be deemed formal. This group not only includes cotton lounge shirts or button down shirts but golfers as well.
And this is why I've chosen this shirt, the Pride & Soul Rubidoux Golfer in Black for R174. It's quite a nice and simple shirt that you can wear to a dinner and dance or even a restaurant. Depending on the setting of your date you can either pair this golfer with Style Republic Chinos in Stone which are 50% off at R250, or the ELLESSE Vintage Denim in Dark Blue for R67. Finish off the look with these Burtons Tassel Loafers in Black for just R189. And there you have it! A look that's sure to impress your date on Valentine's Day.
