Not every man has a knack for fashion, and that’s okay. If you struggle to choose stylish, color-coordinated clothes in the morning, keep reading for some essential men’s fashion tips.
Embrace the Solid-Color Shirt
Graphic t-shirts featuring funny phrases and brand logos are slowly being phased out in favor of solid-colored shirts. A solid black or white t-shirt is an excellent choice, as it’s simple, clean and matches with a variety of other garments. With that said, you should only wear a solid-color shirt if it’s wrinkle-free. Don’t make the mistake of trying to sport a wrinkled shirt, as this will likely hurt your efforts to create a stylish look.
Sometimes the best looks are the simple ones. There’s no rule stating that you must wear a full suit, complete with a necktie, tiebar, cufflinks and other accessories. As long as it’s not a formal occasion, perhaps you can go for a business casual look by wearing denim jeans, a button-up shirt, and a blazer. Business casual is the perfect choice for men who are always on the go.
Don’t Forget the Belt
If there’s one accessory that you don’t want to leave home without, it’s the belt. A belt is unique in the sense that it serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. It keeps your pants around your waist (where they should be), while also adding color and style to your outfit. But you’ll want to choose the right belt to match your outfit. A good rule of thumb is to choose a belt in the same color as your shoes.
Layer Your Look
With the cold weather fast approaching, there’s no better time than the present to sport a layered look. So, how exactly do you create a layered look? Basically, this involves wearing two or more layers. Sounds simple enough, right? Perhaps you can wear a solid-colored shirt as your “base” layered, followed by a button-up shirt and then a coat. Layered looks are perfect for the fall and winter season. They create a deeper appearance while giving you more control of your comfort. If you get hot, simply take off an outer layer.
Avoid Baggy Jeans
Unless you’re in high school — and you probably aren’t — it’s best to skip the baggy jeans. Instead, choose a pair of jeans that compliments your body. For most men, this would include straight-leg jeans, which live up to their namesake by running straight through the thighs and legs.
