You’ve got your weekday work wear sorted; now let’s talk about what you should and shouldn’t be wearing on those days off, especially as an adult!
Garbage the graphic tees – Toss the “I’m with stupid” t-shirts, those Star Wars themed pull overs, and definitely anything that has to do with surfing and sports. Everything has a time and place, and no one needs to know about your diehard fandom during Sunday brunch.
Stay away from trends – Remember the palooka shells and tribal tattoos? The overly gelled spiked hair and the baggy pants? Yes, I’m sure you do, and I’m also sure you regret it. The fix? Stick with the classics, as they are timeless. Solid colored polo shirts, t-shirts that fit, and pants that are your size. This will save you money and ensure you have a solid wardrobe.
Take caution when playing with loud colors and patterns – Playing with colors can be a beautiful thing, but stay away from strong colors and patterns, especially if you’re unsure. Remember, it’s better safe than sorry! My suggestion: stick with the basics. In addition to the standard black and white, shades of blue, brown, and gray are always great. If you want to add a bit more color, play with shades of green but err toward darker hues.
It’s better to overdress than underdress – Not sure about a specific look for a particular event? Always overdress than underdress. Nobody is going to judge you if you dress a bit too nicely, but they might if you’re sporting flip flops and jeans. Not only this, dressing up also indicates that you take sometime seriously, while being too casual could mean you don’t. Stay fresh my friends!
