Every stylist will tell you that while fashions fade, style is forever; if we try to keep up with fashion trends all the time, not only will we spend too much money, but it will become an exhausting and stressful activity. Going shopping every three to six months is quite all right, but try not to choose only items that are very trendy at that moment. It is important to realize that we are all different, we have different bodies and different attitudes, which means that not everything will suit us, even if designers and fashion houses tell us it’s trendy. In what follows we’ll provide you with a few useful men’s fashion tips, so the next time you need to reinvent yourself, you know what to look out for.
A very pertinent joke says: “If fashion is so good, why do they change it every six months?” They change it because it is their job, because they have to come up with something. The downside is that almost everything has already been tried, so now we have to be satisfied with variations and variations of those variations when it comes to clothing and accessories. Yet no matter what you end up choosing, there are some men’s fashion tips that you can use as a guide.
For example, know that clothes that fit you well are already a good choice, no matter the style you prefer. The shape of your body is very important when choosing clothes that fit, so if you are on the stocky side, avoid very slim-fitted shirts, or skinny jeans and skinny ties. One of the basic men’s fashion tips is to keep everything as simple as possible. Unless you went to fashion school, or have a very acute sense for fashion, avoid outfits that are too complicated, like trying to match hats with ties, belts, shoes, watches and so on. Avoid complex patterns unless you are willing to tone everything else down.
Many men adopt a single dress code for the better part of their lives. They’re either formal, suit-wearing types of men, casual jeans-wearing men, or fashion addicts wearing whatever is trendy. These categories are generalized, of course, and they don’t include all men, but they do highlight some typologies which are often encountered. Men’s fashion tips for them are to be more daring and to try new ways of dressing. For example, casual wear doesn’t have to be represented by jeans, tennis shoes and a T-shirt. Maybe you’ve never thought about it, but you can even wear ties with a casual outfit.
Imagine wearing a slim fit pair of jeans, a shirt, a skinny black tie and a knit, buttoned sweater over it. Far from being unkempt, this look will make you look casual, but show others that you still care about the way you look.
