Often, we talk about creating the perfect day to night (DTN) look for women, but what about creating the same look for men? Since the seasons are about to change, it is the perfect time to bring out the light weight sport coats, shorts, tank tops, and boat shoes to achieve a killer day to night look.
Sport Coats are the most important part of pulling of the overall “night” part of this look. Simply throw it on over your tank and you’re ready to go! This is what I consider to be the best dressy casual combination; casual tops paired with a linen sport coat. Since, it’s about to be spring/summer color is key; I suggest charcoal grey, coral, mustard yellow, and even a few light shades of blue, but my hands down favorite is navy.
You know summer is truly here when tank tops start to make an appearance. Don’t be fooled these tops aren’t just for the beach or to wear around the house. You can make a true statement by pairing what’s meant to be a casual tank with a sport coat. Rock the tank alone during the day and throw on a navy sport coat during the night. This is the most essential staple into creating the perfect day to night look so choosing the perfect tank is crucial.
Toss your gym shorts aside for this outfit and bring out those dressy flat front fitted shorts! Every guy should own at least one pair, the possibilities are endless when it comes to pairing these with a variation of tops that are perfect for the summer. My favorite colors are coral, khaki, turquoise, sky blue, and grey. Retailers such as Old Navy, Express, ASOS, and J.Crew are the best place to find an affordable assortment of this summer staple.
Rumor has it that boat shoes are only meant for yacht parties, but that’s so false. Boat shoes are the perfect accessory to complete your overall day to night summer look. They are both stylish and comfy, but the best part is no socks are required, so it allows you to slip on and off as you please. Sperry’s and Aldo’s offer the best variety that won’t put a huge dent in your wallet.
