THE BELT IS TOO OFTEN NEGLECTED
No, a belt is not only used to hold oversized pants. Quite the contrary! It is a central piece of your look, both literally and figuratively. It links the top and the bottom of the outfit, all the more reason to choose it well.
A little advice: besides the leather belt, it is the braided model which is popular at the moment and which can go well with many clothes.
WEAR A SCARF OR KERCHIEF
In hot weather, this is not necessary, but the rest of the time, go for it! A chunky knit scarf in winter, a pretty colorful scarf when the temperatures rise: if you make the right choice, everyone will notice!
GOLD OR SILVER?
Mixing materials like wood, leather, and steel it’s OK. On the other hand, avoid mixing yellow gold jewelry with silver ones.
YOU HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY WITH CONTRASTS …
Rather than shades of blue or gray, a contrasting outfit allows you to assert your look better. And this is not limited (especially) to black and white. Pink and blue, but also blue and yellow, can offer very beautiful contrasts.
But Always Keep A Balanced Outfit
If the colors can be opposed, keep some consistency in the cuts between the top and bottom of the outfit. An oversized chunky knit sweater will not go well with skinny pants. Conversely, a bit wide cargo pants will give a flared silhouette (Orangina bottle type) if you associate it with a tight-fitting turtleneck sweater.
THE SEASON IS IMPORTANT
Of course, we like to repeat that you can wear light colors in winter. But following “the colors of the season” is also of interest. Mixing navy blue, burgundy, and camel in autumn and pastel tones in spring, it’s always nice!
PAY ATTENTION TO THE PATTERNS!
Stripes, polka dots, checks… Geometric patterns add depth to an outfit. Sometimes mixing two kinds of ways can also make your look sharper and more quirky. But never go beyond and, in any case, use them with care!
THE TOTAL LOOK IS NOT (ALWAYS) YOUR FRIEND
A monochrome silhouette can be as stylish as it is messed up. And the border is often thin. The same goes for materials: a 100% denim look can be effective if it is mastered. On the other hand, we remain more skeptical of the real leather, fluorescent, or leopard look!
WITH OR WITHOUT LOGO
There are two schools there, as Michel Sardou would say. And neither can claim to have the upper hand systematically over the other. Just keep in mind that a garment doesn’t look better because its logo is bigger.
DARE TO PLAY STRONG PIECES
An article has already been devoted to strong pieces on the blog; read it! If you are lazy, we can remind you that if you choose a striking piece (white pants, a patterned blazer…), your complete look must revolve around it. And that it is important not to combine two strong elements in the same look.
THE COMBINATION OF SUIT AND SNEAKERS IS A MUST!
The trend already outdated, or quirky style still effective? It’s up to you … But occasionally, the marriage between a pretty suit and beautiful white sneakers always has its small effect.
NEVER THE BOTTOM BUTTON
If you are wearing a blazer, remember to never button the bottom button: only the top button in the case of a two-button jacket and either only the middle one or both top, for a three-button blazer.
And if you recommend keeping your jacket buttoned up when you are standing, you have to undo it when sitting down!
THE ART OF THE TIE KNOT
How do you say that a child and a man differ? To his ability to know how to tie his tie. We caricature a little … but hardly! And what makes the difference between a “normal” man and a stylish gentleman? The latter masters at least two types of tie knots!
SUNGLASSES AT THE RIGHT TIME
A pair of sunglasses is not just to shield you from the sun. In summer, it is a fashion accessory in its name. But, please, do not take them out as soon as the slightest ray of sunlight appears!
CASUAL DOESN’T MEAN SLOPPY
You may prefer a “lighter” style on weekends or vacations, especially if you are forced to wear the uniform as part of your job. But that doesn’t mean you have to have mismatched socks, the protruding T-shirt, or… the plumber’s smile when you bend down!
SEWING IS NOT JUST FOR WOMEN
Stop old clichés, gentlemen! If you have a seam or a button that has come loose, don’t wait for your mom or sweetheart to come to your rescue. Look for a tutorial on YouTube if necessary but repair yourself. And above all, do not go out with clothes that are disjointed or have holes!
BUT DON’T LET WOMEN RULE THEIR LAW!
Who says women have a monopoly on good taste in terms of clothing? Many men seek advice from a woman (preferably their girlfriend/wife) when choosing an item of clothing.
But trust yourself a little! You can know if a piece fits you or not if it puts you in value or not!
TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIRSTYLE
Go to the hairdresser regularly, ask him for advice if you are unsure which hairstyle is right for you.
Remember that women are very sensitive to men’s hair. If you want to be able to make them an asset of seduction, think about washing them at least twice a week.
A WELL-TRIMMED BEARD IS SACRED
If you are not bearded, skip to the next tip. Otherwise, we won’t tell you how important it is to maintain your beard to look stylish. Gone are the days of the caveman, and remember that a beard can quickly be dirtier than the toilet bowl. In short, you know what you have to do.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN
No, you can’t make all of your wrinkles disappear just by spreading anti-aging cream on your face. But a moisturizer can help you look better every day. It’s a good start!
A GOOD PERFUME THAT PUTS ITS MAN DOWN
Next to clothes and hairstyle, perfume is an element to which women are very attached. If you can, avoid too classic fragrances and focus on niche fragrances.
HOW ABOUT COLOGNE?
Men seem to be interested in cologne only from a certain age. However, this product does not lack advantages: in addition to smelling good, it can provide a real feeling of freshness or tone you up in the morning.
BREAK THE CODES
Disregard trends, laugh at the rules. After all, if you don’t like fashion, you don’t have to follow it! The most important thing to have style is to wear what you want, what suits you.
TAKE THE TIME TO UNWIND
We haven’t stopped telling you how to dress to look good. But p ***** of b ***** of m ****, that it feels good to let go, sometimes! Come on, we take out his Hawaiian shirt, his pink shorts, his ugly sneakers, and we love it! And no, this misbehavior won’t make you a nerdy jerk to humiliate in public (take that, LOL League).
YOU HAVE TO KNOW THE SIZE OF YOUR CLOTHES
This last tip echoes the first on the list. Since there is nothing uglier than poorly-tailored clothes, you need to know what your usual shirt, T-shirt, and pants size are.
