What are some dressing tips for men?
1. WEAR A PROPER SUIT.
The key to an elegant suit is being fit. Concentrate on the fit across the shoulders if you’re buying off-the-peg because getting the chest and waist changed is a pretty easy job. Be careful about wearing a period suit if you’re not pursuing a total period look because the suit looks like a novelty in isolation. Classic is the most elegant and most useful – dark, two-button, single-breasted, moderate in details.
2. WISE INVESTMENT IN A WATCH.
Pick it because you love it, not because you believe it might be money-making. Watches are personal; they mark your passage through time. Yet, you have to be practical. Aesthetic, functional, rugged sports models match anything and can take the hard knocks of everyday wear. However, a watch still has to fit you; you should feel comfortable, and it should have the right size and depth suitable for your wrist.
3. DON’T SHY AWAY FROM COLOR.
Whether you are wearing a casual or formal outfit, it should have some color. Most men are unjustly afraid of it – they’re scared of anything that isn’t navy or grey. But color can be timeless too. A green suit, for instance, can look particularly rakish. Pink, green, mustard, and brighter shades of blue are incredibly versatile year-round shades that will lift your whole outfit.
4. LOOK AFTER YOUR APPEARANCE.
Using wooden hangers for shirts and shoe trees for your favorite shoes; having your suit dry-cleaned and pressed; washing your clothes regularly, and, ideally, not tumble drying them and polishing your shoes are some of the helpful tips. Equally, you shouldn’t just care about the skin of your leather jacket; the same holds true for the everyday outfit you wear. Follow a simple but no less solid grooming regime, brush your hair and cut your nails.
5. SPEND MONEY ON SHOES.
Timelessness is about simple design, and so with shoes. You don’t want the color, pattern, or sole to be fussy. Anything fussy may look cute, but will look weird very quickly. Quality shoes come in classic styles, but don’t forget about finding quality dress socks. The shape of the toe counts – and round never goes out of fashion. Pointy or square toes look impractical, and nobody has feet shaped like that.
