Gentlemen. First off, I just want to tell you one thing… I understand. The struggle of keeping up with the big name brands and the fashion worlds newest trends is real. I know this. But I’m here to tell you, none of that really matters. Fashion trends and the latest looks do exactly what they’re meant to do, come and go. A form of expression that’s twisted, turned, and molded by the entire world. There’s no need to force expensive brands or pattern your style around fashion trends to have a good outfit. You just have to hone in on what you wear best and move up from there. Remember: Fashion is expensive, style is expressive.
So here’s 5 simple ways for guys to gain major style points to get you started:
Make it about the pattern. Simple or complex, patterns are a stylish look if featured correctly. Complimented with a pair of single colored jeans/shorts, they’re not a bad idea if matched with something solid.
Never underestimate the details. Think of your accessories as an underline; Highlighting the words your style is saying. Simply adding a watch or a couple brackets could add a whole new characteristic to your outfit.
Master your fit. The most dramatic improvement you can make in your style is to make sure everything fits properly. Make sure everything you wear is contoured to the shape of your body. Not tight and constricting, but comfortable and fitted.
A splash of color never hurt anybody. If you’re like me and not a fan of wearing a loud mixture of colors from top to bottom, a basic and mellow outfit can be easily updated with a simple splash of color in the right spot. Look into it.
Style is about WHAT you’re wearing, not WHO you’re wearing. As much as I hear people talk about big name brands and the who’s who of mens fashion, real style is about how a simple white-T, jeans, clean shoes, and watch for $50 can sometimes look just as good as a name brand outfit for $200. Your style depicts YOU. Your style shows us who YOU are. Do that!
I challenge all of you to follow these tips, turn up your style, and be the best, most stylish man you can be.
