Date night outfit essentials for both.

Date night outfit ideas

Hi there friends and fashionistas! It is time to switch gears here on GFD and talk about date night. When you and your S.O. or hubby go on a date do you match? Either unintentionally or intentionally? My hubby and I fall into the unintentional matching factor.

And when you are getting ready for your date how important is the comfort? No, I am not talking about shoes here. I am referring to the first thing you put on.  Well, I am teaming up with Tommy John today to talk about comfort and also some great date night outfits ideas.

So, Who are or what is Tommy John and why should we pay attention? Tommy John is an upscale men’s underwear company that puts comfort into fashionable undergarments for men. Just like we as women want comfort in our undergarments, so do they. Tommy John was founded by Tom Patterson who was a medical device salesman. He was fed up with how his underwear and undershirts fit and so he set out and designed products the way he wanted them.  Shirts that stay in place and underwear that doesn’t ride up. Who doesn’t hate that? Man or woman. I think both sexes can definitely agree there. They use the latest in fabric tech and with new ideas improve designs. This is what the modern man needs today.

And they also make socks! There are some  with doggies on them!(I have a thing for cute socks…for me, #dontjudge)

Just like we want comfort and also pretty things, our guys want comfort and more practical things. Nothing worse than that blasted underwire jabbing you in the ribs am I right? And the majority or women wear the wrong size bra.  To really illustrate our frustration with the love hate relationship with our own undergarments watch It Crowd, in particular the episode where Jen fights with her bra and looses. Well, I guess guys go through some issues with undergarments too.  And since I do a lot of the clothing, underwear, shoes, and all the other house hold things shopping here  I took a particular interest in this whole thing! I was the one who bought the husband new pants and I am usually the one who buys all that other stuff too. Am I alone there?  Some men just hate shopping. And I bought him pants I knew would be comfortable(Ralph Lauren makes great khakis for men) in and so yeah, I want to get my hubby comfy underwear too.

And Christmas is around the corner Socks make great stocking stuffers  for your guy. It forces them to throw out the old ones.

Just sayin

Alright! So, what about some cute outfits?!  And since I was talking about earlier in the blog matching outfits, I picked some out that would work well together.

SO, for him I went with something that would go really well with the up coming seasons. This outfit for him can work for DATE NIGHT or even Thanksgiving dinner(which I can not wait for!) This is an outfit that can also be worn to the office on a casual Friday. I love having multipurpose outfits. I do the same when I buy clothes for my hubby too, and for my tiny child. Can he wear this to work? Yes, can he wear this to somewhere during the day? Yes. Date night? Yes. Great stuff. I started out with the basics. For jeans that are more on the slim cut you want underwear that doesn’t bunch up. You don’t want to be messing with it all the time. I picked out the Tommy John  cool cotton icon striped trunk.And purple is a fun color! Step away from basic white and then some great socks! I picked out a great shirt from Express who has some great menswear items. And the jeans with the black belt and watch just top off the look. Now let us talk about that pea coat!  I love the idea of a pea coat for menswear. Seeing them in Burberry menswear ads just made me think that this coat is a great one for fall and winter. Just add a great scarf and boom done!  And those leather sneakers are just amazing because they are great for casual days or even not.  FASHION! And with the holidays rolling our way these items would make great gifts!

You thought I was going to do plaid here too huh? NOPE! I went with a red dress well because who would argue with a woman in a red dress! Wearing red is a confidence booster. When you are in red you put your shoulders back and stand tall. Or at least I do. It is such an eye catching color. And the red picks up the red in the plaid shirt I picked out for your guy. See? Subtle matching. Not the full on  we are both wearing red shirts and similar color jeans kind of look. As for the starting point, I feel every woman should have at least one neutral colored convertible bra in her arsenal. This one by Calvin Klein is really cute but also practical and I picked out matching underwear. And if it is cold out I chose that really cute jacket from Rosewholesale. Pair this with a great set of heels or flats if you prefer and you are all set. I kept the jewelry basic. Just a great statement ring. Why? Well, look at the collar on the dress. That in itself is a show stopper it didn’t really need much else. Sometimes less is more. This great dress is also something you can wear during the day or on a date. Versatility. Yes please!!! For the day I would maybe choose a great leopard flat or hell you could wear a pair of leopard heels with it at night. OR Nude closed toe pumps for the office and a great blazer(offices are cold.)

What do you think of these great outfits? These both will be great outfits for parties in the coming months. And comfort is really important there!
