*THIS IS A COLLABORATIVE POST*
Many people feel pretty daunted when it comes to fashion, and men in particular often keep things simple and stick to what they know. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it could be worth putting some time and effort into achieving a higher level of style.
We’re going to talk today about some of the fashion tips that’ll help you feel more comfortable and more stylish in the clothes you wear. So if that’s something that sounds appealing to you, read on now and find out more.
Find Outerwear That’s Versatile
First of all, you should think about outerwear. You want it to be versatile and wearable in all kinds of situations. A good short mac is a good buy if you don’t have one already. These are useful because they offer the protection from the elements that you need your coat to offer, but they can be paired with other items for greater versatility depending on the temperature and time of the year. Whatever you choose, look for style and versatility from your outerwear.
Know How to Dress for the Setting
It’s important that you know how to dress for the particular setting and situation. Your fashion choices should never be rigid; instead, you should know how to mix things up depending on where you’re going and what you’re going to be doing. So look for fashion items that are appropriate for the situation and the setting and make small modifications to dress up or dress down an outfit depending on what’s required.
Pay Attention to How Your Clothes Fit
Paying closer attention to how your clothes fit and how you wear them is definitely a good idea. You want to make sure that you’re not wearing clothes that are too baggy or too tight. For most men, the problem is that they think they need clothes in a bigger size than they actually do. In truth, you can make more of your clothes and how they look on you by buying the right fit. Opting for tailoring services can help a lot if you want to achieve the perfect fit.
Keep Accessories Simple But Impactful
When it comes to using accessories as part of your outfit, it’s best to opt for the mantra of less is more. You don’t want to go over the top because the understated look is what’s most fashionable and stylish these days. A good watch, a nice belt and not much more than that is what’s needed. You can go a little further on days when you’re wearing a suit. For example, you can add a little more color and intrigue to your suit by wearing a pocket square next to the tie.
Stock Up on a Variety of Versatile Shirts
Good shirts should be the staple of every man’s wardrobe. You should try to stock up on a variety of versatile shirts you’d feel comfortable wearing in a variety of situations. If you want to do things a little differently and try out a new type of shirt, you could go for the classic grandfather shirt. You can then build the rest of the outfit around the shirts you’re wearing.
Invest in a Great Pair of Shoes
A good pair of shoes is another thing you’ll need to have. A couple of pairs of shoes that cover all situations and occasions will help to ensure you’re always able to look the part. A bad pair of shoes can really give you away and let your outfit down, and that shouldn’t be the case. If you haven’t invested in a good pair for a long time, now might be the time to do that.
Establish a Good Grooming Routine
Establishing a good grooming routine is a vital part of looking after yourself and looking stylish as a man nowadays. Gone are the days when men didn’t take the time to look after themselves. So when it comes to presenting yourself well, don’t overlook the importance of your overall grooming routine. That should cover skincare, your scent and your hair, including your facial hair. Get help with those things if you’re not sure where to start.
If fashion is not something that comes naturally to you as a man, simply make the most of the ideas above and keep them in mind whenever you need to buy new clothes. Being comfortable in the clothes you wear and feeling stylish at the same time is important, and it doesn’t have to be that hard to achieve.
