Men's Fashion: Gary let me dress him!

So last month I decided to give my boyfriend the challenge of dressing me for a week and it seemed to go down pretty well so we decided to turn the tables and I had a go at being Gok.

I have to admit, I thought this would be easy, however dressing boys is a lot harder than you think. Boys don't seem to have nearly as much variety in their wardrobe as girls do, well for my boyfriend anyway, and it's pretty difficult to find something that looks different for each day. This is possibly why Gary tends to just live in t-shirts and jeans.

However! Where there's a will there's a way and I'm hoping I managed to pull it off and have one (even slightly) different look for every day.

Day one

Vintage leather jacket
Aww, he's trying to do a blogger pose!

The inspiration for this outfit was the one and only Dean Winchester. I absolutely love this jacket (it was once his dad's) and I'm a complete sucker for a checked shirt, they're totally a wardrobe essential for men and women.

Day two

He he. #FunnyAwkwardFace

Gary has this annoying habit of forgetting that other shoes exist. He will usually where the same pair of shoes every day and will then wonder why they fall apart. Just look at these converse stylie things, they're PRISTINE and he's had them the whole time we've been together!

He still had work to go to this day so I went for a kinda smart, kinda casual look and he's actually started to go for it more often.

Day three

topshop men's blazer
Getting used to it now!
I love this outfit, I know it's simple but I really enjoyed getting him in Ted Baker and convincing him to buy new shoes. It's not exactly a NEW outfit, as he bought the shoes and jacket for our LFW escapades (on my recommendations obviously) and I bought the bag for him for Christmas. It's strange to see him wearing actual shoes rather than trainers but I still feel pretty proud.

Day four

Bow Ties are Cool
Bow ties are cool
This was actually the final day because morning were difficult. I had threatened to put him in a bow tie from the very beginning and there was no way I was going to go back on my word! I actually think he looks rather dashing but maybe that's me being biased.

So, who did a better job? Me or Gary?


  1. Day three is awesome. Smart Gary looks the business!

  2. I love Day three - the shoes are fabulous. I think you did a great job.


    1. Thanks! It was fun actually taking him shoe shopping.

  3. I think it went pretty well. I would also like to keep this quote above:
    "Boys don't seem to have nearly as much variety in their wardrobe as girls do"
    As a reminder to girls when they say they have nothing to wear. They always have tons of clothes :-)
