Dressing Your Dude















Let me formally introduce you to the hubs, better known as Big C.  This is my other (and often better) half, and when I first met him he had a shaved head, wore baggy jeans, XL Hanes crew neck tees, massive hoodies, and Nikes.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, by the way, and I was in no way looking to change him, but over the years his style (with a lot of my help) has evolved into what you see today.  It’s funny to look back at old pictures of when we first started dating and compare them to what he looks like now!  Obviously I think he is a handsome dude regardless, but I personally love this more put-together look.  Anyways, aside from wanting to give Big C a formal introduction, a subject that comes up a lot from readers and my girlfriends is how to dress their man.  It’s a lot easier to dress ourselves, but when it comes to the guys, it can sometimes feel like a total crap shoot.  When in doubt, stick with classics, like a light trench or blazer. Tend towards more tailored pieces that fit well, and remember that a good pair of dark straight-leg denim is ALWAYS in style,.  Boots are versatile: totally acceptable for day and night wear, and Converse also make a great staple piece. Lastly, don’t forget that men can accessorize too-a simple silver necklace like the one Big C is wearing or a thick bracelet watch is a perfect addition to any outfit.  What do you guys think? Is this something you would like to see your man wearing?
