This was a really run one to do.
“Women will notice the smaller details,” says celebrity menswear stylist Ashley Weston. That’s especially true for your shades. And just as you wouldn’t wear your dress brogues to the beach, you don’t want to wear the same sunglasses to every outing. “Context is everything,” Weston says.

Although the sport coat in the above picture is grey, I’m still recommending a similar outfit but with a brown jacket instead.
September is a tricky month because we’re between seasons, so the weather can be blazing hot one day and chilly the next. This shades of brown outfit will keep you cool during the warmer times and cozy during the crisper days.
A tweed sport coat is the perfect transition piece during this time. Wear with a grey t-shirt, slim khaki chinos (either cuffed at the ankle or not), and brown suede lace-ups during warmer days. When it gets chillier, throw a grey sweater underneath and finish with a chocolate knit scarf.

They’re tough to keep clean, but white chinos are a great warm-weather outfit and easy to pair with items in your closet. Wear with a tank or t-shirt, chambray button-up shirt, or with a sport coat.
Also, this is one of the few times I’m going to get behind sandals. I love these white chinos with dark brown leather sandals, particularly the ones by AllSaints (see below). If there’s such a thing as “non casual” sandals, these are it.

I love this classic, casual outfit. It works in a variety of settings from meeting up with friends over the weekend to going to an outdoor bbq party. You can’t go wrong with it.
Wear a nautical striped sweater or t-shirt with jeans or colored chinos. Rolling up your pants is optional. Finish with a brown leather belt and clean, white sneakers.

When it comes to color, blue looks great on every guy. I love creating outfits for my clients that are composed of shades of blue (like I mention in this video). In sticking with the same color family, you can mix and match patterns creating an even sharper look.
Take note of the above outfit: A navy chalk striped wool suit worn with a light blue cotton dress shirt, navy wool tie, blue tipped cotton pocket square, and blue and white dot scarf. The suit, alone, can look very boring and conservative. However, mixing patterns within the blue color family, creates a sharp, eye-catching outfit.

Take note of the functional, well-designed Barbour Jacket. With more pockets than you’d ever need, the Barbour jacket is practical, and like a leather jacket, will look age nicely. Pair with a blue gingham shirt and navy trousers to complete this outfit. For added warmth, throw on a navy sweater.

Let’s be honest, we all know that NYE isn’t the be-all, end-all event of the year. But, no woman in the history of womanhood wants to ring in the new year without that special kiss from her leading man.
Whether you’ve know her for six years or six minutes, you’re appearance is going to greatly affect if she starts inching her way closer to you during the final countdown.
Here’s what to wear based on the type of NYE party you’re attending:
Celebrating in Vegas or at a restaurant’s NYE party? If you’re going anywhere other than your family or friend’s house party, you’ll want to break out your suit and tie.
Even though I say office party in the video, I’d still recommend this outfit for a formal NYE party.
Full outfit details here: How To Dress For The Office Party
Heading to your friend’s house party? You’ll still want to show up like the well-dressed gentleman you are…especially if you’re single. Remember: Every woman will be on the hunt for their NYE kissing partner that night.

If you’re heading to your family’s house for a calm NYE celebration, this doesn’t mean you should just show up in a t-shirt and jeans. Begin the new year on the right foot, which means looking your best.
You’ll feel just as comfortable, but sending the message that you have your shit together.
