Husband Takeover- five ways to look sharp

It’s time for yet another husband takeover on the blog! These posts always do really well, and I think I’ve said this before but there really isn’t enough hype to represent the males in the blogging community. I know my husband isn’t a male blogger, but he sure loves acting like one during our photoshoots. We’ve put together a little post on five ways to look sharp, so dressing for the Monday to Friday week in the big city.

Monday

Mondays are always the hardest right? It’s the start of a brand new week and this is probably the day people are going to make most of an effort. The shirt is pressed, tie is on and ultimately you want to start the week out right. Paul is wearing blue trousers with a pink shirt from Dobell paired with a striped tie. Men’s workwear is all about the blue and pink right now, I see it everywhere!

Tuesday

Tuesday’s child is said to be full of grace, so we’ve upped our style game with a smart jacket, also from Dobell. Grey trousers and blue hints from this shirt and suit combo is guaranteed to turn heads as you prepare for a morning of important meetings in the office.

Wednesday

Wednesday is set to be a warm one, so we’ve opted for a short sleeve shirt that still is smart but practical too. Wednesday is a great day to change up your hairstyle, have a shave and really create a different look.

Thursday

It’s almost the weekend, but not quite there yet. We’ve gone back to our trusty pink shirt but made it less formal by losing the tie. Everyone is gearing up for dress down Friday, so why not get ahead of the game and start a little early?! Maybe unbutton that top button too!

Friday

We made it! Now Friday is a day most people working a 9-5 rejoice, especially if you have the freedom to dress down. Paul still wants to maintain his sharp sense of style so he has picked out a simple grey tee from BoohooMAN and a snazzy bomber jacket from Idle Man. Paul can walk into the office with confidence and professionalism, however show that he has a younger, cooler side as well, despite the grey hair!

We hope you loved this husband takeover- five ways to look sharp. Make this week a banger and dress to impress your co-workers, you never know what opportunities await you with a fresh looking wardrobe.

Husband Takeover – The Blue Edit with The Idle Man

Oh my word, can you believe what is going on outside this week? For us brits, the Beast from the East has hit home hard and we aren’t going anywhere until it passes! Well, we did manage to make it to the back garden to take some great photos in the snow. It’s time for my next Husband Takeover – The Blue Edit with The Idle Man.

The Idle Man (@Idle) is a fantastic men’s fashion retailer with hashtag #StyleMadeEasy. The concept is all about minimal yet modern looks and we were so up for working with the brand, that is my husband and I. Paul rarely throws any of his clothes away until they are threadbare, crumpled messes- socks especially! So we had a little wardrobe cleanse to see in the new year, and something blue decided to become the theme of this takeover.

This navy bomber jacket with black fleece collar detail works so well to protect Paul in the -4 degree chill.

I love how Paul looks in blue, it’s definitely his colour. Above he is wearing the Borg bomber jacket, classic long-sleeved t-shirt and slim fit stonewash jeans from The Idle Man.

There’s no problem with wearing blue head to toe as long as you choose different shades. Dark jacket with light jeans and vice versa. Now onto the second look:

We fell in love with this stonewash denim western jacket- it really works with Paul’s playful style and his inner childhood cowboy!

The Idle Man, stocks everything from jackets and jeans to trainers and t-shirts and is a real go-to destination for men. Alongside the online shop, The Idle Man Manual is a blog dedicated to offering style advice as well as stories and guides about music, grooming and lifestyle!
