I have a little challenge for you this summer. This challenge will allow you to keep your credit cards, stash your money aside, and ultimately help you save up for a sweet sunny summer escapade together with your beau.
The challenge is: Do not buy anything new for your wardrobe. Instead, raid your man’s closet for classic menswear finds that you can mix with your very own outfits. Try these fashionably his ideas!
1. Cargo shorts
Men usually wear these loose above the knees short, with extra pockets for we-don’t-know-what during an ordinary lazy weekend afternoon. Pair this up with a plain noodle strap inner blouse, and cover it with a tribal or animal print piece. A tiger look will be roaring with strength and femininity. This is a great look for a summer joyride with your dear.
2. Classic Office Blazer
This is a classic staple of men. Your man pairs it with a tie and wears it in the office. Why not wear a floral jumpsuit inside his manly blazer to soften its appeal. Most sleeves are too long for us girls, so fold the sleeves up to the elbow. Tie a belt – preferably with a contrasting color – around your waist to show off your womanly figure. Do not forget to accessorize. Strut this ensemble off in your office. I’m sure the ladies would not recognize that you are even wearing his outfit.
3. Rugged denim vest
He may be using this piece during his short trips with the boys, or when he is playing with his toys in the garage. Wear a tightly fitted striped dress and accessorize it with his rugged vest. Cinch your waist with a bold belt to show off your shape. This is a beautiful nautical look to welcome the heat of the summer.
4. Casual Tees
Pick a loose, plain colored, v-cut collared shirt from his drawer. Loosen up in his shirt and show off one of your bare shoulders. Tuck it in your skinny jeans. Wear a belt and mix it up with some girly add-ons. A big bold necklace and a set of bracelets will contribute much elegance and sexiness to this outfit.
5. Classic Button-Down Long Sleeves Polo
If you have picked a light plain colored polo, white, lilac or light blue, pair it with a brightly colored short shorts. Tuck it in. Fold the sleeves up. To add sexiness, unbutton the first two buttons and accessorize once again with a big, bold fancy necklace. Pull your hair up for a touch of playfulness.
6. Preppy Cardigan
Wear a bright printed dress, preferably with pinks and greens, and cinch it with a thin green belt. Wear his charming cardigan over and pull the sleeves up to your elbows. Wear flat pumps to perfect this cool, comfortable and sporty outfit. This is a fun get up for a date with your partner. He will definitely not be able to get his eyes from you and the fun, feminine look this outfit brings out in you.
