Men’s dressing is more than wearing a decent shirt, tie, and fragrance. It is also about evaluating the colors and fabrics matching your height and age. Casual or formal, the mood and the occasion also influence your attire.
With most corporates choosing to operate from home after the pandemic, casual dressing may be the new dress code. Yet, things like a good fit, appearance, and accessories need to be trendy, avant-garde, and sober. Here are some styling tips for men on how to dress well and on-point.
Accessorize Your Look.
It is all right to take a suit-and-tie as your corporate dress. If you play your cards right, your accessories can reasonably complement your look. Camel boots, a chronograph watch, a shirt in Pantone 2021-approved Ultimate Gray, and a large laptop backpack for men will help complete your overall look and presentation.
When working from a couch, give attention to comfortable workwear. You can still follow the dressing rules by complementing your washed-down jeans with a lace-up shoe and a graphic tee. Laid-back industry streams like advertising, media, and technology allow you to combine a professional look with comfort. So, look creative and inspired in an ‘unofficial’ dress look.
Consider Whites, And Also Color.
In workwear, many men like to use safe colors and prints. A white or blue dress shirt, or an off-white polo, and khakis or jeans is a casual uniform. Step outside your comfort zone and think pink in professional wear. Swap your corporate blue shirt for an office pink micro print one day of the week and notice how you feel.
White color may seem summer-friendly, but there is yellow, rust, purple, and green suit to make your business attire look summer best. Go flexible in choosing colors. It will help you adjust and imbibe new trends. You can also look fabulous in gothic-coat.
Invest In A Timekeeper.
A watch conveys your personality. It is also an art piece showing you technicality in movement. When you look at your watch to know the time, it also shows its craftsmanship and technique. Possessing designer and celebrity watches is the latest trend. The green bezel Rolex Submariner, Breitling Chronomat, Cartier, or Patek Phillipe are not only watches but statement-makers.
Look for a functional and an aesthetic watch for a professional business look. Rugged sports watches are trending. Wear them to score your achievers’ look at your workplace.
Sport Casual And Simple Footwear.
In dressing, the proper footwear can complement your overall look. Chukka boots are a classic staple that matches with casual outfits and gives a smart and fashionable look to men. They became popular after the Duke of Windsor wore them in 1924.
Other than brown hues of Chukka boots, smart casual alternatives like boat shoes, desert boots, loafers, or classic white sneakers. Try to keep polished leather shoes for formal occasions. The luxury sneaker market is catching up with adolescent males. Know your feet preference before buying shoes. Slip into easy-to-wear and light designs to complement your sporty look at work. Go in for an athletic style but have an eye for luxury too.
Wear Neckties To Occasion.
A tie symbolizes honor, position, and nobility. Ties also make you look influential and exude confidence. If you have a casual workplace, wear a tie of the right length to reach above the belt. Pick a tie of the proper width that suits your body type. A skinny tie is not the best look for work. So avoid total adventure when wearing a tie.
Neckwear is not only about ties. There are bow ties for black tie functions and cravats worn over the closed wing collar for ceremonial occasions. When going tieless, wearing a crisp shirt and modern accessories will help you sport classic vibes. Keep one day a week for tie-wearing for a professional look.
Groom Yourself Well.
Fix your barber appointment every fortnight for your hair trim and face scrub. Beards are getting a regular fixture in most young men in media and art, so follow professional tips in beard maintenance.
Foot care is also essential for men. Use a pumice stone, nail clipper, moisturizer, and other accessories for neat and clean feet. Apply anti-aging eye creams to overcome your computer strain side effects. Tame and tidy your eyebrows and wear sunscreen in your daily grooming routine.
Find The Right Spectacles.
The glasses you shopped for may be of poor fit and may not last for the price you paid. Visit a qualified optician to get the best eyewear. Look into the frame shape and color, as they should match your eyebrow and face outline.
Most casually dressed men like to have different colored frames to suit their attire. Explore bright colors, but they shouldn’t clash with your business dress. Pick neutral options in eyeglasses and avoid plastic frames.
Fashion trends come and go. Maintain a style of your own that stays on point. Upgrade your wardrobe every quarter. Avoid adopting fashion trends of shorter shelf life. Stick to classic colors, patterns and find a style mentor to help you look pleasing and professional.
