FASHION CHALLENGE AUTUMN 2015 | Husband Styling 101

A little chill in the air at night is certainly hinting that Autumn is here, meaning it’s time to think about ditching the sandals, lowering the hemlines and starting to add a couple of layers to our summer wardrobes.  I’m super excited to be taking part in The Warehouse’s Fashion Challenge this season, meaning I will be heading in store as an official blogger to dress our family head to toe in the latest trends for $200 or less!

2.  Match 5 Pocket Jean Green $39

  3.  Urban Equip Wills Shoes $30

My husband is a bit of an odd mix when it comes to styling.  Off the clock he is a skateboarder, always has been always will be.  He likes one brand of skate shoes and one brand only {I can understand this as when you’re flying around a concrete bowl you need to be able to feel and trust your feet}, and his clothing aesthetic hasn’t really changed too much over the 15 years I have known him.  His jeans have gotten a little tighter – thank goodness – but his basic old dude skate attire is pretty simple and doesn’t follow fashion trends.

Work is a different story.  Dave works for a major global corporation, so smart-casual is pretty much always required.  A classic plaid shirt is such a great office staple and does double duty off the clock when wearing it untucked is an option.  We were stoked to find these great 5 pocket pants in a deep olive green, these are totally Dave’s style and would work dressed up for the office or dressed down with a tee for after-hours and weekends.  Not as casual as jeans but the slim cut keeps them on-trend and relevant.  

We were looking for a comfy sneaker-based shoe in a contrasting colour to lighten up Dave’s look for Autumn.  The Wills shoe from Urban Equip was a no-brainer, totally office friendly and crosses-over easily for an after work drink or BBQ. 

So total cost, $89, easily reduced by shopping on sale.  I think Dave looks hot!  Most importantly to both of us he looks like DAVE.  He won’t wear clothes he doesn’t like so I’m feeling good about our shopping trip to The Warehouse and so is he.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Your husband’s awesome! Had to giggle in the 15 years I’ve been with husband the only thing that’s changed is the jeans are worn up around his waist..compared to around his ass!

  2. Love this! I can't believe how cheap those shoes are – they would be a great smart casual option for Papa M!
