WEAR IT // Dressing Your Man {Casual Ties}

Monday, February 20, 2012

Zach and I had some extra time yesterday... so we headed to Manhattan Beach before sunset to take pictures with my new lens. Can I just say that my husband is such a good sport? He waited so patiently for me to figure out what I was doing with the camera, lighting, focus, etc. (although, when I got home, I realized he was straight-up yawning in about 50 shots.)

To make sure you don't yawn through this post too, I thought I'd make it less about my cutie of a husband and more about what he's wearing... sort of a spin off the "I HATE ALL MY CLOTHES" series, but for ladies who dress their men.

To be fair, Zach tends to be a pretty good dress-er. But, I buy all his clothes and often help him put outfits together. So, ladies, if you need new ideas for your guy's closet, hopefully you can find some inspiration here.

Lately I've been really into ties (to be honest, it's only a matter of time before I start wearing them too - hello, 1991!) I love it when Zach pairs them with casual outfits. It's a fun, unexpected detail.

Here, I love that the tie follows the monochromatic tone of the sweater and shirt. It's subtle enough to not detract from the overall feel of the ensemble.

Since marrying (and starting to dress) Zach, I've learned how important it is for men to have a good pair of jeans that are tailored (yes, I'm serious) to fit perfectly. It may cost a little bit more up front - but it makes all the difference in how put-together they look. I'm a firm believer in the European approach to clothes - a few, quality (and maybe more expensive) pieces that are tailor-fit to your body.

Swoon. :)

And, here's a quick fashion update on my end:

Yesterday I jumped out of my comfort zone and put a soft, flowey shirt with a high collar under a structured wool sweater. I loved it and will definitely be re-wearing the outfit soon. Plus, if you didn't notice - I chopped off all my hair! It got a little crazy in the ocean breeze, but you still get the gist. It's short... really short.

Happy Presidents Day!
