More often than not, you and I are not wearing dress clothes. Not because we don't want to look good, but because we want ease and comfort.
Now, I'm not going to pretend that I'm the first person to advise you on how to dress casually-yet-thoughtfully. I'm just here to remind you that you can do so fairly easily. Whether you're out running errands or gearing up for a short weekend trip, a few minor tweaks could make you the best-dressed guy in the room (or Whole Foods).
1. Simplify the palette.
Even if the articles and fabrics of your outfit are nothing special, minimizing the color palette will at least make it look more intentional. Joggers, a pullover, and sneakers could even look sharp if done right.
2. Fit. Fit. Fit.
It's easy to disregard fit when dressing comfortably. However, it's becoming easier and easier to find joggers, soft tees, and comfy sweaters in more tailored fits, so NO EXCUSES.
3. One special POP.
Whether it's a hat, a bold shoe, or something else; adding that one stand-out piece will elevate your look and might even make it memorable (for all the right reasons). Besides my killer new duffle bag, my added "pop" is my trusty ol' hat that I'm going to have to hang up come spring.
