If you’ve ever read a Men’s Fashion magazine in recent times, you probably feel that being a stylish man takes a lot of time, money and effort. However, that is not true at all. The truth is there are dozens of quicker and easier ways to look better, more with it, more stylish – all with a minimum of effort. We’ve compiled a list of some of the very best and effective style tips out there to effortlessly notch up your fashion quotient.
Some of the Quick Tips and Tricks for Men’s Fashion are:
Shine it up – It goes without saying that looking sharp when formally dressed it supremely important. And you’ve learned how to make your suit choices so that you look your best; however one often overlooked aspect of formal dressing is shoes. Shoes may not be the first thing people notice about you, but they surely get around to it. A good shining goes a long way so don’t skimp on it.
Match your accessories – While this seems like such a simple thing to do, more often than not it gets ignored. We cannot overstate how important it is to have matching accessories. No matter how much you’ve spent on the men’s printed cotton shirts, they won’t look as amazing as they would if your shoes and belt matched.
Simplify – Always remember that 9 out of 10 times, it’s better to simplify your outfit. This means that if you’re wearing a pair of printed cotton Lounge pants for men, pair it with a simple shirt and basic shoes. Simplify your belts and shoes too – while having a few statement pieces does no harm, classically simple will always win.
Sock Story – Most men don’t really think twice about socks and you’re probably guilty of wearing a pair that was torn atleast once. C’mon guys! Let’s buck up!
Stop buying socks that are low quality or horribly quirky. While having a few pairs that are a bit over-the-top is fine, invest in a few solid, high-quality pieces. The rule of thumb when it comes to selection of socks is that their color should never match the shoe you’re wearing it with. Choose a single element of your getup – the tie, the shirt, the blazer or even the pocket square – and match that.
Tone down your tie – Any event that requires a tie – be it your job, a wedding or a date – may lead you to believe that the tie needs to have the perfect face. Well, surprisingly, that’s not true. Tone down the crispness of the tie just a bit to lend some of that lived-in feel to it by adding a dimple. Not only does it give you a slightly more easy-going look, but it also brings your outfit some personality. While we’re talking about ties, make sure you’re not including too many ridiculous, over-the-top, off-puttingly quirky ties in your wardrobe. As always, stick to the classics.
Keep Fit – The simplest yet most effective way of taking your outfit up a notch is to make sure that our wardrobe fits you well. No, we don’t mean the kind of tight that will look like second skin, but make sure that all your clothes fit. For example, your Men’s Cotton Long Sleeve Shirts should be tight enough that your body shape is discernable but not so tight that someone could trace your muscle structure.
Change your Casual – Casual does not mean boring – get that definition changed in your mind’s dictionary. While you can incorporate Mens Solid dyed cotton Shirts to your casual wardrobe, have fun experimenting with everything from Men’s Stripe Cotton Shirts to collared shirts.
Take it up a notch – Follow the basic rules and guidelines that will help your wardrobe, but don’t become a quiet follower. Take risks in moderation and that too calculated risks. Be it when it comes to jewellery, prints or accessories – don’t overdo it to a fault, but dare to mix it up a little.
When it comes to your personal fashion, the only way you’ll really learn, is if you put yourself out there and try new things that you’ve never done before. Make an effort to try something completely out of your comfort zone and many times you’ll end up loving something you never thought you would. While you should always keep these tips in mind, don’t get stuck in a rut. So many guys are afraid to express themselves through their style. Make sure you don’t end up like that!
