Trenchermen’s casual-but-vibrant vibe makes dressing for the occasion easy—as really anything goes. The whole “not-trying-too-hard” look does really well, and to be honest, I try to embody that every time I dine there. Staples for Trencherman include oversized sweaters, chambray button ups, plaid shirts, and really great boots or booties. A Chelsea Boot in Wicker Park is a must. Spare no expense when it comes to comfort while dining at Trencherman, because you will be eating… a lot.
We love this oversized sweater from H&M paired with black ripped skinny jeans and some Chelsea boots from TopShop. Accessorize it with a flat top hat, bejeweled stud earrings, and a chunky plaid sweater, and you are good-to-go!
