Okay, so I know it’s spring, but I have been wearing all black for a few months. Why? As I have stated many times in the past, the all black look is very affordable, comfortable, and fashion friendly. You definitely can’t beat that, especially if you are on a budget.

For example, this all black outfit was purchased for less than $50. Wow, only $50? Yes! Between the “Do It Yourself” denim jeans, and the reasonably price sweatshirt, I had no problem swiping my credit card for a few great deals.

So, before the season is over, make sure you wear a few black pieces before it gets too hot outside.

Strictly Business: Plaid Blazer

Shoes: Cole Haan

Who says you can’t have some color when in formal mode? Without a doubt, the laws of formal attire have seemed to change since our father’s time. Simple white shirts and black slacks have gone out the window while patterns, pastels, and fitted pants have taken over. With this change, have come the rules of office attire and regular outer wear.

With all that being said, we recently had an opportunity to catch up with our friend Kris. Today, Kris shows off one of his transitional, office looks.

He explains, “I have worn this to work, business meetings and went straight to happy hour.”

The lovely thing about a blazer is that you can switch it up from the cramped cubicle in the office to drinking your favorite grown man drink.

Although ties can be worn with blazers, it was not needed and would have taken away from this styled olive oil look. Kris agrees, “A tie is absent with this blazer because it is hard to go a blazer like this justice with a tie, especially since the blazer is decorated enough to make a statement.”

So, if this post teaches you anything, remember to switch up your plain khaki office attire. Add some color to your life!

Since cuffing season has officially ended, is there any other recreational activity that involves getting to know someone outside the bedroom? Perhaps we should actually try dating again.

Dating? What does that word even mean in 2015? Well, for the few of us that don’t hide behind their cell phones and spam accounts through social media, going on dates is a great way meet new people and find a potential soul mate.

Okay, so once I land a date, what the heck do I wear?

Remember, presentation is the key!If you are the average Joe Schmo, t-shirts and joggers are no longer an option. Think about it! If you want to impress someone, you want to look and feel great. So, you can’t go wrong with a button-up, tailored jacket, hemmed dress pants, and a neck tie. Call me old fashioned, but you will definitely seal the deal with this combo.

Often, a sport coat and dress pants may come off as “Strictly Business.” So, if you don’t want to look like a salesman, add some prints and a little pop of color to the mix. Just take some notes from my outfit.

So, I hope this new eye candy appreciates the amount of time and effort that’s being put into your wardrobe. Good luck this season, and may the odds be forever in your favor.
