So, you own a sportcoat, but don't know how to wear it? You're not alone. While a sport coat look can be more sophisticated and fit that 'semi-dressed up' occasion better, it does intimidate many men.
Here's the thing. It really isn't as hard as it looks. Here are a few quick pointers so that you don't have to wear a suit on that next date night or quick business meeting.
1. Consider wearing it casually. Try a t-shirt or crew neck sweater and a pair of jeans. It's a smart, casual look and dressed up enough for a date or casual business meeting.
2. Go fitted. Make sure whatever you are wearing under is fitted. Nothing will kill a look quite as quickly as a baggy t-shirt or sweater that's fighting to get out.
3. Level up with layers. If the weather is a little cooler, throw a sweater over your polo or button down. Follow it with a blazer. Simple, but you'll walk out the door with confidence in hand.
4. Try a turtleneck. You'll be surprised at how sharp it will look. Match the color of your turtleneck to the sport coat or jeans if you are unsure of what color to pair with it.
Now, throw a hand in your pocket and GQ all over the place.
