As times change, so do the fashion and trends, and if you consider yourself to be a stylish gent or have aspirations to become one, there’s now a latitude of ways you can express yourself fully and unapologetically.
There has never been such a boom of styles and fashion trends stemming from many different eras all becoming popular at about the same time. Naturally, there’s always something fresh to look forward to and embrace. In that respect, if you’re looking to upgrade your look, the following fashion tips and tricks will surely come in handy.
Tailored Clothes are Timeless
To start off on a classic note, men’s fashion is seeing a rebirth of tailored and fitted clothes. Belts will certainly always be a trendy accessory, but wearing a perfectly tailored outfit belt-free is all the rage now.
This is particularly true for suits, as there’s rarely anything more attractive and dashing than a man in a tailored, well-fitted suit. The essence is that if the suit doesn’t fit well, its brand and material simply won’t matter. The way your clothes fit is infinitely more important than anything else. Otherwise, you may end up looking extremely outdated.
The Mix of the Retro and Trendy
In addition to simple and perfectly tailored suits, we’re witnessing a revival of retro trends and fashion as well. You certainly don’t have to embrace it, but if it fits your aesthetics, you can successfully embrace a full denim look, a broad-shoulder jacket with some comfortable mens terry cloth shirts that brings back a bit of 70s fashion or even copy the style of your favourite glam rock band of the 80s.
The Right Colours
Choosing the right colour palette is another important style aspect. You might not be fond of the glam-inspired colourful clothes trend, but there are other directions you can take. Consider the monochrome garment option. Whatever your personal style may be – formal, casual, athleisure, business casual – pairing pieces in those colours that suit your skin tone will instantly elevate your entire outfit and you’ll look infinitely more fashionable.
It may take some time and effort before you figure out what colours suit you best, but it’ll be worth it in the end. Try on every garment before you purchase it to see if it looks as good on you as it did on the hanger. Test it all out to see if it’s your cup of tea when you wear it. Some colours are always great choices – classic white, black, navy blue, dark green, beige, brown, maroon, and charcoal. Also, don’t be afraid of the singularity of colour. If you don’t experiment, you might never discover the secret of your perfect style.
Details are Everything
As mentioned before, belts may clash with tailored clothes, but they will always be one of the most essential accessories for every fashion-conscious gentleman. Depending on the look and outfit of choice, it’s the details that will tie in your look and help you stand out in a good way.
With that in mind, a good-quality leather belt with a stylish buckle is always an essential element. And you can’t really make a mistake with a classic leather wallet or a money clip. Naturally, a good watch is always a perfect accessory for any single style and outfit, but you could also consider adding rings, bracelets and necklaces into the combo. The only trick with these accessories is to be subtle and balanced. If you pile up too many of them, you might appear gaudy. Don’t forget that you can have too much of a good thing. It’s all about balance!
The best fashion tip that will always stand the test of time is staying true to yourself and wearing clothes that truly reflect your personality. In the end, the essence of fashion, style and appeal is all about being confident and comfortable with your look and within yourself!
