The world of men’s fashion is an innovative and intriguing arena which is attracting growing attention from the media. Gone are the days when fashion shows were all about what women were wearing – now, men’s shows are a popular event, and the range of designer looks on the show is more diverse than it ever has been before. Whether you’re a dedicated follower of fashion or have no idea which trends will suit you, here are five foolproof fashion tips to make sure you look and feel great no matter what the season.
Every man should own a great-fitting suit that makes him look and feel a million dollars. There are plenty of situations where you might need to wear a suit, including social events, work purposes, and special occasions. Therefore, it’s definitely worth making sure you have a suit you love to wear. Tailors like Jasper Littman create stunning bespoke suits that fit perfectly and exude luxury and style. When you buy a suit, try on plenty of fits and styles to find out what is best for you, and don’t hastily choose the first suit you find just to save time or prevent visiting more shops. It’s worth remembering that you can have a suit altered if the off-the-rail size isn’t a perfect fit.
Find your style
It’s all very well looking at catwalk shows to see what the models are wearing, but in reality, nobody will suit every trend. Match your clothes to your shape, build, complexion, and individual style tastes. If you’re not sure what looks good on you, don’t be afraid to try on lots of different items to see which you like the best.
Show off your individuality
Male fashion is all about expressing yourself, and the range of trends and brands reflect a whole host of different styles. Your clothes and the outfits you put together need to reflect your personality and celebrate who you are. Fashion is often described as a form of art, so use it to get creative!
Sort out your staples
It’s a great idea to invest in a transitional wardrobe that allows you to dress for every season. This will allow you to move seamlessly and stylishly through the year, making sure you look great no matter what the weather is doing. Base your wardrobe around a few staple pieces for the season and update your look by adding new clothing items and mixing and matching your existing styles. Change patterns, materials, and colors as the seasons merge. Swap tartan, layers, and heavy wool from the winter months for pastels and neutral shades of linen and cotton in the spring and brighter colors in the winter. Once you know what suits you, it will be easy to put together outfits based on a core look.
Accessories aren’t just for fashionable ladies. They are also an integral part of men’s style. Adding accessories makes outfits stand out and create an individual touch that lifts plain clothing items. Examples include:
- Pocket squares
It is best to use accessories sparingly as less is usually more. Simply adding a hat to a casual daytime jumper-and-jeans look, draping a scarf over a woolen coat, or matching a leather bag with a tailored suit will make all the difference to the overall look of your ensemble.
