I am very excited to tell you guys about a new project I worked on! I was asked to be the Style Expert on TBS's brand new show "Trends with Benefits". The segment I worked on which premiered last Saturday was all about what to wear on a first date. I got to meet with some great single guys and discuss the dos and donts of what to wear on a first date. Let's be honest, men typically resort to wearing a good ole' standby outfit usually consisting of baggier jeans and a collared shirt. I have some tips that can help transform what might be a simple outfit into a style stand out!
JEANS: Upgrade your denim! Men often gravitate toward a baggier fit and a lighter wash, if you are one of these men it’s time for some ch-ch-ch-changes! Opt for denim that is a darker wash and more of a slim fit with a tapered leg (no need to go totally skinny) . This will automatically earn you major points in the style department with the lady you are taking out.
GO BOLD: Don’t fear color! In fact, a few vibrant, bold accessories can go a long way for your look. For instance, adding a pair of colored sneakers or boat shoes to a simple outfit can take it from drab to fab in seconds. Adding a colored chambray (think peaches, pinks, greens, etc.) under a grey sweater can add the perfect pop to what might be a previously plain outfit. Think a little outside the box, plus all these fun accessories can definitely be a good conversation starter.
