How To Dress To Match Your Man – The Outdoor Guy/The Sportsman

Now that you’ve successfully gone past the first date and landed the man of your dreams, it’s time to consider the way you should dress so that the two of you make the most stylish couple anyone has ever seen. Naturally, you needn’t fundamentally change the way you dress; after all, the goal is to be yourself. You should however adapt your style to your partner’s.

If He’s The Outdoor Guy or The Sportsman

If your man is always seeking adrenaline, whether it’s skiing on the slopes of the highest mountains, sailing all through summertime on the blue seas or riding his bike every chance he gets, you don’t necessarily have to share his love of sports, but you most definitely know how to dress the part when you accompany him as a spectator.

If he likes playing tennis, buy yourself a crisp white outfit, if he loves sailing, sit by him in a cute summer dress and sunhat, enjoying the wind and the water. If he likes playing basketball, pair a sexy pair of skinny jeans with a jersey and be his biggest fan from the strands, and if he enjoys winter sports, a cozy yet stylish winter outfit, accessorized with a cute knitted hat and stylish gloves is de rigeur in a ski resort.

On the other hand, if he’s a passive sports junkie, who doesn’t miss a single sporting event, be it football, basketball, hockey or polo, you should make sure that when you accompany him to such events, the two of you look like you belong together. Steer clear of anything too fancy. Your best bet are casual clothes – a stylish pair of jeans or shorts, a fabulous pair of leather boots or a cool pair of sneakers, a fun T-shirt or sweater, a colourful scarf or very little jewelry – and you’re good to go.

If your man is not much of a sports enthusiast, learn how to dress for the conservative guy, the businessman, the fun-out-on-the-town guy, the sophisticated downtown guy, or the artist.
