5 Key Style Suggestions for the Modern Man Whatever the Season
Timeless wardrobe advice that will make the most of your signature style…
1 Dress according to your body
Next time you venture to www.reiss.com, make sure you have your own body type in the back of your mind. In other words, if you happen to be on the slightly heavy side, turn to garments with vertical stripes, which can at least tone things down somewhat. On the flip side, if you are looking to add a bit more bulk to your appearance, checks can work a charm in this regard.
In short, not everyone is equal, so don’t be tempted to buy something because it looks good on someone else. There’s absolutely no guarantee it will do the same for you.
2 If you don’t wear it, get rid of it
In truth, this next advice could apply to anything you buy. It is particularly relevant when it comes to clothing though. So many of us buy items of clothing, only to banish them to the back of the wardrobe to never see them again. The main reason this happens is because the clothing wasn’t suitable in the first place.
As such, if you have items that fall into this category and you haven’t touched them in over a year, get rid of them now by donating to a charity shop, selling online or using a clothing bank. Your trash is another’s treasure.
3 Invest in tailoring
Of course, some items won’t be suitable for tailoring – but a lot of your wardrobe will be. Wherever possible, try and get these garments tailored, as it will make a huge difference to how they sit on your body. A lot of men feel as though the clothes they own aren’t good enough quality. The problem isn’t the quality, it’s just that they don’t fit properly.
4 Less is more
We’re now talking about how much you spend on clothing. Sure, feel free to spend as much as your wallet allows, but be shrewd about just how many garments you are buying. In short, you are not trying to break records for the number of items bought in a day. If you go down this route, you’ll soon find that you have a lot of average garments that just don’t make the cut – quality not quantity will always work out when it comes to ‘cost per wear.’
5 It’s not all about jeans
We have reached an era where some guys don’t even think twice about what they are wearing on the lower part of their body; it’s always jeans. Well, this creates something of a boring style over time – so it’s time to change things up. The next time you risk opting for jeans again, take a look at the tailored trouser options and smarten up. Sure, you might have to think a little more on how the outfit is going to work for you, but it might create an appearance that suits you down to the ground.
