It Takes Two

By Jamie Carson, Junior Digital Editor | Feb 2016

Sure it’s important to think about what you’re going to buy them and where you’re going to take them on date night, but above all that you need to figure out what you’re going to wear (nobody credible got lucky in an Ed Hardy tee and embroidered baseball cap). Take inspiration from actual real life couples and steal their style to steal some hearts. Well, it should at least get you a swipe right.

Hats Off

Like the old saying goes: the couple that wears cool headwear together, stays together. That’s correct, isn’t it? These guys’ hats are on point because they’ve matched them up perfectly with their outfits; the gentleman’s fedora is an extension of his suit rather than a dominating force.

Feeling Blue

 

 

Feeling Blue

Unless you were planning on playing tonsil tennis behind a bike shed after downing two litres of cider, we wouldn’t recommend sportswear for a date. However, if it’s in an amazing blue like this, it’s definitely acceptable. Don’t be afraid to match your colours for an all-in-one look, or stack different shades to add depth.

Dead Good

Smart overcoat draped over the shoulders, double breasted waistcoat with contrasting black velvet, pinstripe trousers and leather gloves. Forget the Addams Family, if you ever wanted to revamp your sartorial style with a gothic edge, this is how to do it. Eyeliner and poetry about death optional.

It’s A Match

 

 

It’s A Match

Wearing the exact same thing as your partner can prompt your mates to take the piss out of you (and rightly so), but when it’s a classic detail like a borg collar, you’ll be forgiven. Want to make the look more subtle? Ditch the collar and go for a borg lining inside the jacket for extra warmth.

Scarf Face

Thought scarves were just for choir boys and teenage wizards? WRONG. Scarves can be the highlight of your look if you do it right. From geometric and Aztec prints to premium textures and branded logos, make that extra winter layer something you want to wear, not have to.

On Your Bike

 

 

On Your Bike

To be honest, your Grandmother’s blouse would look good on a motorbike with a beautiful woman’s arms wrapped around it, but western shirts really are retro gems that look impeccable with a pair of black skinny jeans. This style worn by Justin O’Shea has been given a Saint Laurent spin with its decadent silky gold sections.

In The Band

Sometimes you can look just as good dressed down as dressed up, evidently proven here by this combination of a vintage Iron Maiden t-shirt with a khaki chore jacket. If you’ve always wanted to look like you’re in a band then adopt this style, regardless of your musical talents (just learn two chords, we won’t tell).

Tailored To Perfection

 

 

Tailored To Perfection

Even if you take your date to a McDonald’s for a 20 box of nuggets and an apple pie, if you can wear a suit like this they’re going to be blown away. A timeless navy three piece combined with a striped shirt and tie is always a winning look, regardless of the fast food chain.

All The Small Things

 

 

Forget grand gestures, this Valentine's Day it's the little details that count.
