Fashion comes and goes. Things go out of fashion and come back in again and again. One thing that never goes out of fashion? Style! Everyone should have their own personal style. It’s what separates you from everybody else. It’s the thing that makes you unique. It isn’t about following the latest trend or fashion! With that in mind, here are my favourite style tips for men:
Don’t Forget to Accessorise
It isn’t just about throwing on an outfit you like. You need to accessorise too. This doesn’t mean covering yourself in a ridiculous amount of finery like Mr. T, but you do need to work out what an outfit needs and compliment it accordingly. Your outfit might just need a watch. There are a ton of different ways you can do it though – I like checking out sites like LookBook if I’m ever stuck.
Pay Attention to the Small Details
The key to having your own personal style and working it well is to pay attention to the small details. Things like pocket squares, socks, and even your belt can make a big difference. You can contrast your outfit with these things, which will help to add depth and interest. If you don’t naturally have an eye for detail, don’t worry – you can develop one!
Always Wear Clothes That Fit
The fit of your clothes is one of the most important things. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing a suit or jeans and a t-shirt; they really need to fit you properly. The key is to know your exact measurements and size so you can buy things that are perfect for you.
Only Wear Clothes You Love
If you want to show off your personality, you need to make sure you’re only wearing clothes that you love. If you feel indifferent about something or you’re not sure, it’s not ‘you’. If you see something and fall in love almost instantly, you should own it! You’ll get more wear out of your clothes this way.
Invest in Key Pieces
Instead of trying to save money on all of your clothes, set out to invest in key pieces. For instance, you can’t go wrong with high quality shoes, or a high quality jacket. Just don’t be a sucker for brand names; it isn’t all about that!
Don’t be Afraid to Experiment
Why not experiment with your style? If you’re not sure what you like best, there’s no harm in trying out a few different styles to see what suits you. Brands like OH Big Man have lots of choice for you to play around with. If you like something but you don’t know if it’ll suit you, give it a go anyway. Have fun!
Don’t Blindly Follow Trends
It isn’t all about trends, so don’t blindly follow them. If you love one, follow it, but this is about style not fashion.
Look After Your Clothing
If you look after your clothing properly, it’ll last longer and you’ll look smarter. Don’t scrunch things up and throw them on the floor. Hang them up nicely!
