The clothes you wear say a lot about your character and personality. If you dress down, without taking the time to create a stylish and attractive outfit, it can hurt the way in which people view you But creating a stylish outfit isn’t always easy, which is why we’ve compiled a list of essential fashion tips that every man should follow.
Ditch the Graphic T-Shirts
While there are certain occasions during which graphic t-shirts may work, it’s generally best to avoid them if you are a grown man. Graphic t-shirts with logos and “funny” phrases lack any real level of style or aesthetics. A better choice is to ditch the graphic shirts and replace them with high-quality, solid-color shirts. A basic navy blue t-shirt, for instance, is a versatile garment that can be worn in dozens of different ways.
Keep it Simple
Sometimes it’s best to follow the “less is more” approach, meaning you should keep your outfits simple instead of complex. Trying to include too many different colors, patterns and styles into your outfit will often result in a messy, cluttered appearance that does you no justice. Whether it’s for a formal or casual occasion, keep your outfits simple to avoid this problem. Besides, you’ll find that simple outfits are easier to put together than complex outfits.
Choose the Right Fit
Many men are guilty of wearing clothes that are either too big or too small. You have to remember that no people two have the exact same size body; therefore, some garments may fit while others don’t. Take the time to find garments that fit your body properly. If you are lucky, you can find off-the-rack garments that fit. But if you are not lucky, you may have to take your garments to a professional tailor to have them adjusted.
Invest in a Good Pair of Shoes
Another all-too-common fashion mistake that many guys make is wearing the same pair of sneakers day in and day out. There’s nothing wrong with trying to stretch your sneakers for a little longer, but you should invest in a good pair of shoes for occasions that call for a slightly dressier appearance. A pair of brown or black leather oxfords, for instance, is an excellent choice. This versatile choice of footwear can be worn with suit trousers, khakis or even jeans, making them the preferred choice of shoes among many fashion-forward men.
