What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. For those of you who celebrate the heritage and culture of the Irish, toasting to good luck and better days ahead, Dappered is showcasing three outfits built around three levels of dress formality. First we showed you Dressed Up, then Smart Casual. Today, we’re cranking the casual dial all the way up to 11 because sometimes you just want to relax and enjoy the holiday without being bothered to get dressed up or go all-out on a holiday wardrobe. Let’s sprinkle in just a touch of green. Sláinte! (featured photo credit)
The Jacket:Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket in Stonewash – $149. Whether you’re planning for a super casual, laid back night out with friends or you’re investing in a little self care time at home, a simple fleece jacket will keep you warm and happy. This gray one from Patagonia is a cornerstone of many men’s weekend wear. Well made, easy to wear.
The Drinks:Smithwick’s Irish Red Ale, 6pk – $10. While most of the guys and gals will be drinking Natty Light with a healthy dose of green food coloring, opt for something different. No, not Guinness or Murphy’s either. Smithwick’s is an Irish red ale with notes of roasted malt, a bit of caramel, and clean fruity zest.
