5 Important Fashion Tips for Men

There are so many rules that we have to follow if we want to be seen as fashionable. Some might say that keeping up with fashion is a difficult task, as not only do you have to pay attention to what is trendy at the moment, but you also need to know how to wear it and how to pull it off. The case with male fashion is a bit more complicated, mostly because men are generally less fashion-conscious, so they need extra help in this department. How often and how should you wear a suit? How many white shirts is enough? How do you combine sunglasses or watches?

1. Know what suit to wear

If you want to be a fashionable man, then owning a suit or two is a must. But there is one thing that you have to pay attention to – it’s not wearing the suit that matters, it’s how you wear it. One of the most important things to have in mind when this is concerned is that you should always have a suit that is well-fitted to your figure. There is nothing worse than a man wearing an oversized suit, so make sure to go to your tailor to either alter the suit that you already have to fit you like a glove or have them make one new just for you. Once you have that, you can go with a white shirt (make sure you own more than one white shirt for formal events) and several accessories – something that sounds very basic can look incredibly impressive.

2. Don’t be afraid of color

Many men make one huge mistake – not being brave enough to pull off different colors in their attire. Black, gray, and brown might be the most popular colors for any guy, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t indulge in an occasional color-pop and feature something that’s either bright, neon, or fluorescent. Also, combining different colors (make sure they are complementary, though) can do wonders for your outfit. If you’re wearing jeans, for example, a piece of clothing that is very basic yet quite effective, you can definitely go with a white tee, but then again, why not combine different colors and create something completely new?

3. Accessorize accordingly

You should wear different accessories depending on the fashion style that you want to rock that specific day. For example, if you opt for casual, and you’re wearing trousers and a sweatshirt or a tee, combining them with sunglasses, a good watch, or some jewelry might be the right choice. However, if we take a formal event as an example, you might want to introduce different accessories to the game. Having a good men’s card holder instead of a wallet will give the impression of high class, which is bound to leave an impression. Apart from that, know how to identify a formal watch. There are plenty of choices on the market, from cheap to costly, so this shouldn’t be too hard.

4. Don’t skimp on shoes

The shoes you’re wearing tell a lot about you. Going with cheap shoes might sound like a perfect option, but cheap shoes are obvious, and they might not look good with the rest of your outfit. Not to mention that cheap shoes will very quickly stop being usable, so you might have to spend money on a new pair. That is why you should always invest in high-quality shoes, either for formal or for informal events.

5. Underwear matters

And finally, let’s discuss your underwear. This is not something that plenty of people will see when they look at your outfit (unless you want them to see it), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go with high-quality underwear, mostly because this will boost your confidence and you will wear your whole attire with more pride.

As you can see, these five tips are not very difficult to follow, but the results can be amazing. Thinking in advance about what you’re going to wear on a specific occasion and knowing when to stop with accessorizing is half of your look. Don’t overdo it, and always have the guts to try out something new and fresh!
