Men – Follow These Fashion Rules and You’ll Revolutionise Your Style

Men – Follow These Fashion Rules and You’ll Revolutionise Your Style


If you are sick and tired of not feeling like you are the best version of yourself, then this guide will help you out. Believe it or not, there are some fashion rules out there that you can follow if you want to make the most out of the clothes you have.

Make Sure your Clothes Fit
The key to looking well is having a good fit. If you want to buy clothes that fit you well, then focus on getting the fit across the shoulders right. Getting your chest and waist altered is a very easy job. If you want to go for something a little more vintage, then be cautious about wearing a period suit unless you plan to explore the whole look. Suits like this, that do not have the right accessories may end up looking novelty. Classic is best if you’re not quite sure, so choose something that is dark with two buttons. Other things that you need to look out for include ones that have a single breast, and that are moderate. Suits like this are not boring, in fact, it’s a canvas in which you can build upon at a later date. Remember that an ill-fitting suit that has a very expensive price tag might not look as good as a budget suit that fits well, so focus on the fit over the budget if you want to look the best you can.

Invest in a Watch
Some say that a watch is more of a piece of art. You need to choose a watch because you love it and not because you think it looks expensive. Watches mark your passage through time, but they also need to be very practical as well.  If you want a watch that is going to fit you very well, then you need to go for 40mm, as this is considered to be the standard. Having a good pair of glasses will also help you to get that perfect style. Find a store that has a very big selection so you can make sure that you’re not overlooking some of the more unique designs.

Don’t Steer Away from Colour
It doesn’t matter whether it’s casualwear, formalwear or anything in-between because you need to make sure that you indulge in a bit of colour from time to time. Most men are scared of colour, and they are intimidated by things that are not grey or navy. At the same time, you have to remember that colour can be timeless as well. A green suit can look rakish, but if you go for shades of blue, pink, mustard or anything similar then you may find that this suits you all-year-round and that it will suit almost any outfit that you have in mind. When it comes to colour, less is more. If you follow this rule, then you’ll soon find that everything comes together nicely.

Wear in your Jeans
Jeans are actually the most useful garment in a man’s wardrobe. The slim-tapered option is usually the best. The main reason for this is because it tends to be wider in the thigh, so they are comfortable, and they then narrow as the jeans go down the leg. This means that the jeans themselves can be worn with smart shoes or sneakers if you want. If you want to choose the best option, then try and choose raw denim that is nice and dark. Choosing a nice, distressed option will also work wonders. The great thing about denim is that it ages as you wear it, and the more you can capitalise on this, the more unique your style will be.

Look after your Appearance
This might seem similar to the advice that your mother would give you, but at the end of the day, if you have invested a lot of money in your clothing, then you need to make sure that you take good care of it. Use wooden hangers for your shirts and then use some shoe trees for some of your finest shoes. It’s also helpful for you to have your suit dry-cleaned. Establish a very simple routine and also have a grooming routine for yourself too. Brush your hair, trim your nails and your beard too. If you do things like this, then you’ll soon find that you feel way better in general.

Keep Underwear Simple
Style isn’t what everybody else can see. When it comes to your underwear, there are two rules. One- novelty prints are not for fully grown men. Your underwear is not the chance for you to express your personality. Two- underwear that is heavily branded lacks sophistication. If you want to wear branding with confidence, then save it for your jeans or your shirt. If you want to go for an option that is going to stand the test of time, then you can’t go wrong with the cotton boxer short. This is ideal if you want your skin to be able to breathe and it’s super comfortable against your skin too.

Spend Money on Good Shoes
Timelessness revolves around the simplicity of design, so incorporate this same concept into your shoes. When choosing shoes, take into account the sole, the pattern, the build and the laces. Ideally, you don’t want anything fussy. You want something strong and simple. Loafers, brogues or even derby shoes are all ideal. Remember that it is the shape of the shoe that really counts. Round is never going to get old, so if you want to go for a single option that is going to last for a very long time then make sure that you keep this in mind as much as possible.

So, there are many things that you can do to try and make sure that you do everything you can to try and make the most out of your outfit, and if you follow this guide then you will soon find that you are able to get the best result without any hassle or fuss.
