Casual Date Night Style | For Him

Meet Craig.  He’s normally behind the camera around here.  He’s also my husband and today, a reluctant blog model. I’ve always joked that someday I would be styling him for the blog.  Well, that day has come.

It was a lot of fun for me to be behind the camera for once!  In all fairness, he taught me everything I know about photography.  For this shoot, Hanes sent us three ComfortBlend t-shirts along with a challenge to style one in a head-to-toe outfit showcasing my man’s personal style aesthetic.  Craig’s normal style is modern casual, he also works in a business casual office, so we had no trouble at all putting together a look including these t-shirts.  He loves a modern fit t-shirt and jeans look, it’s his typical daily “uniform”.

We decided upon a casual date night look using the red t-shirt since Valentine’s Day was this weekend.  This outfit is something that he would wear for a dinner and a movie date night.  The little bit of red peeking out from the top of his sweater is just the right amount.

Hanes-t-shirts Hanes ComfortBlend t-shirts are the brand’s softest t-shirts yet.  Craig commented on how good they felt as the first layer in his outfit.  They’re perfect under sweaters in cooler weather and will also stand alone as a nice pop of color with jeans or shorts when the weather warms up.  I like their modern fit and price.  At less than $5, you can afford to get one in every color.  They come in chili pepper natural heather, medium green heather, vermillion orange, ebony black, navy heather, Caribbean blue heather and oxford grey.  They also come in a broad range of sizes from small to 3XL.

Hanes ComfortBlend t-shirts are available at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Hanes.com.

    Your man looks great! Good job! I love my man in jeans and a sweater as well. I think you need to make this a regular, monthly feature. (I’m sure Craig will be jumping for joy to hear this. :p ) Just like I need help styling myself, I need help styling my hubby. lol

  • This was very exciting for me. I couldn’t wait to see what your husband looked like because you are a total babe. He’s a keeper! And I’m fairly certain my husband has that exact same sweater. I like how you used a RED t-shirt to make it a little more Valentine’s-y. No surprise here… you can style a man just as well as yourself. Go you. 🙂

  • Your hubby is a good sport, he looks great in this look.

  • What a good sport for being your model! He did a great job modeling and you did a great job with the photography 🙂

    Your husband is one handsome hunk, if I say so as a happily married woman;-) ! You did a great styling for the cool casual look!
