By the way: Our favorite outfit is whatever you wear when you’re with friends. As long as someone’s got the beer and the cigarillos, it’s gonna be a good time.
The business outfit.
Bring color to your everyday work. Or faux-fur fox tails. Or whatever you can hang from a shirt collar. An improvised tie will earn laughs and make a good conversation starter. Is your workplace more business-casual? Try an unusual pocket square. No pocket square? No worries. A pack of Al Capones will do the trick too.
The Concert Outfit.
There’s nothing like the adrenaline of a live concert. Pumping music, cheering crowds, and everyone’s in a good mood. What better place to make a unique statement? Whether you’re rocking out in checkerboard cut-off overalls at Lollapalooza or just vibing in a mesh jersey over neon body paint at Ultra, there’s no etiquette to worry about. Wear anything you want, so long as it screams you!
The partner outfit.
You know you’re in a comfortable relationship when you can stop caring what you look like in front of each other. Forget the makeup, the tight clothes, and the nice shoes. Let’s bum out in our rattiest sweatpants and stained shirts. Underwear not required. This one’s all about getting cozy with that special someone.
The wedding outfit.
As if it wasn’t hard enough to find the person you want to spend your life with, wedding day stress can be overwhelming. Between the cake, the flowers, the décor, the weather, the music, the food, and of course the dress, it’s easy to get caught up in the details of making everything flawless. The secret is: it’s not going to be perfect, and that’s perfectly okay! The more you make your wedding about who you are as a couple, and not about all the things it’s “supposed” to be, the more fun you (and everyone else) will have. So get married the way you want, even if that means going down the aisle in an inflatable dinosaur costume!
The dress-up outfit.
There’s nothing a parent wouldn’t do for their kids. As Moms and Dads, it’s up to us to clean up the diapers and vomit, to lose nights of sleep, and to help our kids through all the awkward and painful moments of growing up. But there’s a lot of fun to be had along the way, if you’re willing to grab a tiara, and a sparkly skirt. Sometimes kids just need a superheroine, even if she’s Dad.
The trend outfit.
Those who have learned to follow their gut no longer need to follow the trends. Why spend money on the latest IT pieces of the season when they are already outdated a year later, because then something completely different is in? You like 80s acid wash? Cool. Or 90s grunge? Sexy. And who knows, you’re look might come back in sooner than you’d think. Then you’ll be a “trendsetter.”
Let’s hit the beach with a six-pack. The kind you drink. Pack up a beach mat, a volleyball, a pack of cigarillos and get your friends together for a day of fun in the sun. No need to impress anyone with a perfectly sculpted core or killer arms. Just have fun, be friendly, and do your thing. Feeling relaxed and confident is a way more attractive look anyway.
The home office outfit.
The next level of escalation when the sweatpants get too hot: working in underwear. Tell your boss about a new sales strategy while your thighs bask in the warm afternoon sun. Magnificent. It’s easier to think when you’re well ventilated. Now there’s nothing standing between you and that promotion.
The outdoors outfit.
Ultra-light. Moisture wicking. Anti-tear anti-insect anti-UV anti-chafing underwear. Enjoying life’s simple pleasures has never been more complicated. You don’t need cycle pants to enjoy a bike ride, or $250 hiking boots to walk a simple trail. Just throw on some shorts (they don’t need to be rip-stop), a t-shirt (yes, even a cotton one), grab a hat (ball cap, cowboy hat; seriously anything but one with a built-in fan), and get out there!
