Does your guy sometimes need a gentle nudge on what to wear that's appropriate to the occasion? And you want to make sure he's up to snuff for your Valentine's date, right? Then check out this date night look for him (and one for you), and tell him THIS is how he dresses for a romantic night out.
If he likes to see you in skirts, but you like a little edge - grab a lace pencil skirt and contrast it with a streamlined leather biker jacket. A simple silk tank sets the skirt off perfectly, and statement earrings bring the attention to your face. Pink pumps give a nod to Valentine's Day - but the overall look is far from frilly.

Subtle pattern combining keeps this outfit sophisticated yet super easy to pull together. A grey herringbone jacket and charcoal pinstripe pants are the perfect frame for a blue cashmere v-neck sweater, while a tipped pocket square shows he made a little extra effort. Black monkstraps take this look from office to evening, and striped socks add a dash of Valentine's whimsy.
