So you want to look better, don’t you?
Fortunately, it’s easy to do that if you follow the tips mentioned in this blog post.
These helpful tips will help make your daily looks better without dressing up or wearing what’s trendy this season.
So if that sounds like something that you’d be interested in, then keep on reading.
Tip #1 – Start With Neutral Colours
Let’s say you’re new to men’s style and don’t know what to add to your wardrobe. Well, then we’d recommend you to start with some timeless items like jeans, plain t-shirts, and classical jackets like a bomber or leather jacket.
But when you’re buying them, make sure they come in neutral colours. Why? Because with these colours you can more easily match them with other colours. Vibrant colours, not so much.
So start with neutral colours, and with time add some vibrant and contrasting colours.
Tip #2 – Try Out Minimalistic Clothes
One of the best ways for men to look great is by wearing minimalistic clothes. But what are minimalistic clothes?
That means you won’t be wearing any graphic tees or jackets. All you’ll do is wear one coloured clothing items.
But once you level up your style game enough, it’s okay to start adding multi-coloured clothing and patterns. Just make sure to keep the graphics and patterns minimal.
Tip #3 – Use Colour Blocking
So you might be asking, “What is colour blocking?”
Well, it’s a way to match colours. That tip is especially great for beginners. So how do you colour block?
Well, basically, you first create an outfit out of neutral coloured clothing. These could be your navy blues, greys, blacks, and whites. And after that, just add an item of clothing with a unique colour. It could be anything from a hat to trousers.
Tip #4 – Use Accessories
Next up on our list is one of the most valuable fashion tricks out there. And that’s to wear accessories. “But why?” you might ask.
Well, that’s because they are the finishing touch of any outfit. Accessories help elevate your outfit to the next level. You could wear many accessories like watches, bracelets, necklaces, and rings.
So start wearing them! Accessorising is especially important during summers as you’re not being able to layer. However, when you do, don’t go overboard. 2-3 accessories are enough.
P.S When you’re accessorizing, be sure to match the leathers and metals. This shows you’ve got an eye for detail, which makes you look more attractive.
Tip #5 – Use Layering
Another great tip for improving your outfits is to try out layering. When you do it correctly, it will add some extra depth to your outfit.
So how do you layer?
Well, an easy way to layer is by adding a leather jacket to your t-shirt and jeans outfit. But when you do that, make sure you dress appropriately to the weather.
For example, when it’s hot and sunny outside, a black leather jacket wouldn’t fit. You’ll just sweat! So instead, maybe pair it with a thin denim shirt.
Tip #6 – Wear Unique Clothes
So you want to become the best-dressed man, right? Well, then try out some unique clothes.
But when we mean unique, we don’t mean flashy! You don’t need to put a Gucci T-shirt on to become a better-dressed man. Instead, you should look so something more subtle. That could be an unusual colour or clothing piece like mountaineering sunglasses.
Where do you find them?
The best place to find unique clothing is in your local thrift shop.
Tip #7 – Cuff Your Jeans
This is a free yet stylish thing to do. When you cuff your jeans, your whole outfit could go from a messy one to clean. It will help you to show off the shoes you’re wearing!
So if you want to cuff your jeans, I’ve found fantastic video from Your Average Gent. Check it out, and try it out yourself.
Tip #8 – Tuck in your shirt for more formal occasions
If you ever need a quick way to make your outfit more formal, then the best way to do it is by tucking in your shirt. It doesn’t matter if it’s your standard tee or a dress shirt. When you tuck it, you’ll instantly look more elegant!
Tip #9 – Match your shoes with your trousers
Matching your shoes with your pants is good because you won’t split your legs. That means you’ll look taller instead of shorter.
However, this isn’t a rule but a guideline.
For some of you, it might be better to wear contrasting shoes with your trousers to make your legs look a bit shorter. Additionally, you might find a way to rock a white shoe with your black jeans.
So take this tip with a grain of salt.
Tip #10 – Add Patterns
So you’ve added minimalistic and neutral coloured clothing to your wardrobe. That’s awesome, but your outfits might become a bit stale really soon. So what should you do?
The answer is to add some patterned clothing. There are many to choose from. I’d highly recommend you to try out clothing pieces with a square or stripe pattern.
But make sure to only wear one patterned clothing per outfit. That’s because, with more, you might overcomplicate your look, which won’t look good.
Tip #11 – Try Out Different Coloured Jeans
Most men only wear blue jeans. You could find some rocking black and grey ones as well.
While these are great to have, they shouldn’t be your only option. There are many jeans with unique colours. I highly recommend you to try out green or beige ones. You could even try out other trousers with patterns.
So go ahead and try something new.
Tip #12 – Create a Fashion Board
One of the most beneficial things to do is to create a fashion board for yourself. Why?
Well, let’s say you have a first date with a beautiful girl. You want to impress her but don’t know what to wear for date night. What would you do?
Well, if you had created a fashion board, it would have been easy. You would have had many outfit ideas to choose from.
But how do you make one?
The best way to do it is by going to social media and searching for outfits. There are two ways of doing that:
- On Instagram – Follow some men’s fashion pages. This way, your feed will be filled with many outfit ideas. If you find something you like, make sure you save it.
- On Pinterest – Make a new pinboard for your outfit ideas. Then just search for men outfit ideas, and pin your favourites to your board. After some time, you should see Pinterest recommend some outfits on your feed.
Tip #13 – Wear your outfit with confidence
And ending our list of tips is to look confident when wearing your outfit. It doesn’t matter how trendy or well thought out your outfit is; if you’re not confident, you won’t look great. So keep your head and back straight, and you’ll instantly look better.
