Look who’s back! Truthfully I love styling boys as much as I like getting dressed myself. Menswear is just as much fun to shop for if you know where to look! That’s why I was so excited when my friend Nikki introduced me to Hugh & Crye, a D.C.-based brand whose dress shirts are sized by body type: athletic, lean, tall, etc. It’s kind of genius for those of us buying shirts for our boyfriends, brothers, and dads — get rid of the confusing numbers (who knows their dad’s neck size anyway?) and shop by build and height. Umm, why didn’t I think of that?
Note to boys everywhere: you pretty much can’t go wrong with complementary shades of blue. Navy, light blue, and brown boat shoes is kind of as good as it gets — and it’s a look that works everywhere from a business casual office to happy hour with your college pals to date night with your lucky lady. Bonus points for navy gingham — I love gingham on boys as much as I love stripes on girls.
Do you dress your beau or your guy friends? (Or in this case, your male coworkers?) What do you love to see them in? Do tell!
