How to dress better when you are a man? Here are simple and effective tips to improve your style 😉
We all wonder how we get dressed when we get up in the morning, and it’s not always so simple that we think we find happiness, even in the closet full of the universe. We must find clothes that match the mood of the day and then succeed to grant them between them. And that’s where it goes bad! We will help you a little, follow the guide!
1 – Vary the colors!
Abuse navy, gray, brown and beige! These are the basic masculine colors that go with everything! You will be able to afford a room more sparkling like red for example. And one last tip: stop wearing black!
We begin with the most complicated and the most subjective of the precepts to respect! We all agree that dressing exclusively in black, white or beige is not the best. We are, so to speak, all in agreement when it comes to identifying an outfit that lacks balance but it is much more complicated to deal with what we have in his closet. Even if it is still a matter of taste, there are still some golden rules that can guide you at the beginning, the time to be able to free yourself to fly on your own. As for the choice of colors, it is first necessary to refer to the color of his skin and his hair. Having clear skin and a clear face will often mean avoiding too dark colors that would contrast too much with your face, the eclypsant in the process. On the other hand, if you have dark skin and dark hair, too light colors would have the same effect. Then, it is important to work on colors that can be balanced between them, either because they are close (navy blue and light blue), or because they are opposite but can match (navy blue and beige) . These compositions are essential because they make it possible not to finish in monochrome itinerant, appearing only one and same color on the totality of our outfit. An aesthetic horror! It is also interesting to vary the materials, between leather, jeans, cotton, linen or jersey. This will really support your color choices by adding texture to your outfit. To conclude, I will talk about color reminders, this little detail that will show who knows how to see the time and the application you have dedicated to your outfit! A brown belt will make it easier to integrate brown shoes to your outfit as well as a tie color. Finally just enjoy yourself, and if the colors you wear are similar to you, you follow these rules and you go thoroughly, everything will be fine!
2 – Choose clothes to his size!
Choose clothes that follow the lines of your body and for pity do not put too wide jeans that make you a falling ass and that is too creased on your shoes.
This seems to be the basis of everything, and yet it is far from always the case! There are many who are seen in the streets with the pants in the middle of the buttocks, without even doing it on purpose. This kind of look can lend itself to some models of pants but when it is not for, it shows! Be careful to choose its size and the cut according to its morphology. Too wide, too tight, too big or legs too short, we really quickly missed his purchase of pants by inattention and it’s not great! Especially when you see the price of some badly worn pants! This observation applies of course to all the clothes that can be worn and the pants are no exception. It is true that being a little wrapped does not help to wear clothes close to the body, but wearing too large will never hide your shape but will tend to do the opposite! It is necessary to find the right medium and especially to be at ease in his clothes, it is one of the keys of well-being. As for the jackets now, and more particularly the jackets of suit, it is more than ever of actuality to speak about the size! If, at one time, long and slightly wide jackets could be tolerated, this would be clearly considered a fault of taste today! A jacket must be adjusted while leaving a certain range of motion to the wearer, this flexibility that we all need to not look like a penguin. Then, the length of the jacket itself is important and must be chosen according to the tastes of each. As for the sleeves, they must show the shirt, especially if you wear cufflinks and it is bad taste to have the wrists and half of the hands covered as can be seen on many badly made jackets. This is important because it avoids the puffy side that can be had with a poorly worn suit and it is all these little details that make you have the class, or just look like a red who put his suit of Sunday ! As for the other clothes, it is almost understood that a pair of shoes too big are not worn and that a cap too small which would be just put on the head, it is clearly not beautiful. Finally, it is understood for most people anyway!
3 – Choose the right materials!
Reading labels is extremely important when shopping. Escape acrylic, polyester and company and orient yourself towards natural materials like cotton.
Privileging natural materials seems obvious today but it is not for everyone. Without saying that this passes before the aesthetic aspect of the garment, I would say that it counts almost as much because it goes there at the same time of our comfort, our well-being and the durability of the chosen garment. Comfort already because some materials are much more comfortable to wear than others and there is clearly nothing to do between a 100% cotton T-shirt and a half-polyesthere tee. Cotton will necessarily be softer and more comfortable to wear. Well-being, natural materials are always more breathable than synthetic and it changes a lot, in summer and winter. Already it is much hotter, which is still important depending on the season. You will need less clothes to be well, you will necessarily be more comfortable in addition to avoiding the risk of colds of all kinds. Then the breathable side will allow your sweat not to accumulate in the garment but to escape naturally through the fabric, it’s still better than wearing T-shirts that let us sweat without letting anything pass ! This breathable side finally allows the body to cool in case of hot weather and that’s great! Less risk of feeling the transpet in sum! As for the durability of the garment, natural materials such as cotton or jersey are more resistant to wear, the effect of time and odors. Sometimes, when you buy a t-shirt in synthetic, that the fabric absorbs after a while of the smell of perspiration and that we can not get it back! With the natural is over, you can finally wear your favorite clothes to the end without problem! To conclude, aesthetic side, we really see the difference and it may be an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by changing a few materials of clothing. Exit the eternal jeans that fills your closet with its almost identical models, why not opt for some chinos with original colors and hyper-resistant material and pretty to wear? (see our article on the best chinos for men) To test, you will tell us news!
4 – Do not try to be another!
Your look should match your character and your lifestyle. Do not try to be too chic or to be another, you would not be comfortable …
Choosing clothes that look like us is really essential because, even if you do not necessarily notice, your attitude and your gait change clearly when you put on a different outfit. Trying to put on a tuxedo to someone who spends his entire year in tracksuit and you will see what I’m talking about. His way of wearing it, walking with it and sitting down will make you say whether or not he’s used to that kind of outfit. Moreover, by wearing clothes that do not look like us, that do not stick to our style or our way of being, we give a picture of us distorted that comes back in our own eyes. Difficult then to be comfortable in his sneakers. So it’s better to be yourself and to find the look that best suits your skin, the type of clothing that makes you feel like nothing, an extension of us that reflects both our personality and our idea of what is aesthetic or not. It is a real therapy for those who want to play well and it can even help people who do not physically accept themselves, helping them to feel beautiful, to accept themselves and therefore to please others! Trust is the nerve of war in seduction!
5 – Contextualiser !
You know that the shorts / espadrille combo is frowned upon for a hiring interview. In the same way it is also a mistake to want to do too much. For every occasion you have to find the right style.
Of course it is important to consider the context when choosing your outfit. Depending on whether you go to a social evening, a drink with friends or a party in town in the hope of meeting charming girls, we will not dress the same way. The social evening requires that one puts oneself at the level of the dress-code of the guests. Difficult to get an idea before setting foot but the habit makes it easier to realize things. It is necessary to be level but not too much to do so, disembarking in costume in a party where everyone wears a casual chic look could show that you expect a lot of this event in terms of meetings. Being too elegant has never been good for business or for human contact! On the other hand, not doing enough would return the image of someone else. A person who wants to stand out but does not do it the right way. People around you will unconsciously less want to come talk to you, marginalizing you and making you feel uncomfortable without really knowing why. Whether in this context or simply for an aperitif in the city, making the difference often means doing things differently. A look is really working according to the image you want to send back from you. Brown shoes, a beige chinos and a dark blue jacket could, for example, bring relaxation to your style. A kind of natural elegance that, even when dressing casually, seems innate to you. The class what!
6 – Have fun!
Men’s fashion must not be undergone, you must instead take things in hand and have fun! Your style will improve and you will enjoy shopping and getting dressed 😉
To be comfortable in his pumps as in everything you have to know how to evolve. And for that, what better than to try out new outfits, to confront new fashions and to go where you never dared to go before. This kind of stylistic exploration is necessary when one begins to tire of his appearance and that will allow you to break your own codes! For this, no need to go very far! A little tour in a store to spot some pieces that you could match, this shirt that you never dared to try, this chino too colorful for you. Believe me, you might surprise yourself! Someone who likes to get dressed and who likes to have a choice in his wardrobe can be seen at first glance. That kind of person who will have style even when he says he’s out in pajamas, who will be well dressed even to get his bread, not because he has crazy clothes, but simply because he takes the time to choose them and grant them. No need to wear Burberry, Chanel or be Men’s fashion victim to have class!
