Easy Living: Trench Coat Casual

One of the questions I’m often asked is, “Do you get dressed up all the time?” The answer: no. Absolutely not. There are days when the last thing I want to think about is putting on a button-up, blazer, tie, and a pair of dress shoes. Particularly on the weekends, I just want to catch up on some sleep, roll out of bed, and head to my favorite coffee shop. It’s on these days that I’ll reach for the casual essentials.

Get the Look

If you’re a regular reader, you can skip this sentence, but one thing I’d love for more men to understand is that being a student of style does not mean wearing a suit a tie all the time. That is a style, but it’s not style. You can be casual and still be stylish.

Some basic casual style essentials? A heather gray athletic sweatshirt, black denim, and white leather low top sneakers.

I love adding tailored or dressier elements to more casual looks. It’s interesting and unexpected. A lightweight khaki trench works just as well with casual neutrals as it does dressed up or in-between.

    Trench coat is what makes a man more elegant and great. Most girls would tend to attract to man who wears trench coat. It makes a man a real man.

    great weekend option with a khaki trenchcoat especially in a misty and rainy day, it softens the gloomy weather and giving some casual chic, another nice dress-down look Brian, have a lovely day. C

    great outfit! Mixing casual with dressed up clothes always looks stylish and modern. The other day, I added a denim jacket with a dressy outfit; totally improved the look.

    I saw this post and purchased the same coat from Land’s End. Funny thing is, I was recently thinking about getting one but wanted a more casual one and this one was perfect. Thank you!
