My boyfriend has asked me several times if he could tag along for a tour. In response, I remind him that he’d have to wake early on his weekends and shop with a group of women for 3 hours and that usually gets him shutting up fast! However, he does continue to begrudgingly express to me that it’s much easier for women to shop cheap and still look chic. But I’ll show you and the much deserving men in your life, just as I showed him! Here are two causal looks for men. Each piece is less than $50!
The first look features a tank, which has become a trendy piece for men over the past couple years. In a southwestern tribal print, it allows a mix of colors for you to play with when it comes to adding other pieces to the outfit. A nice cargo short in a tan color is a summer staple, it’s comfy, keeps you cool and can be mixed with almost anything. If there’s any discomfort about their arms showing or if they’ll be in an air conditioned place, you can add a bright colored hoodie that compliments the printed tank. I paired this with moccasins in a color represented in the tank and sunglasses. However, any neutral color – including this navy – would work, as long as it is in the same color family.
The next look features a dip-dyed shirt. Rather than feeling stuffy, the soft and light fabric makes for a comfortable and cool shirt in the summer. Paired with gray jeans and bright colored Converse sneakers, you manage to have the effect that a woman has with a semi-monochromatic outfit and a pop of color at the feet. A trendy accessory men wear are snapback caps. I kept this gray to make the only color stand out in the footwear.
These outfits are stylish and fun. They are perfect for summer and can easily transition with cooler days. Of course, these are more on the casual side but just like they thought we couldn’t do this, they’ll be surprised to find we can dress them up for cheap too!
