5 Things To Help Your Man's Fashion

“See those Sneakers?  Clean, simple, go-with-anything style…

When I started my research for my first real “men’s” article, I went straight to the source: my husband. He might not be the most fashion-forward-thinking man, but he does have a classic style and his own look. As I do for all of my women’s posts, I figured I would do a quick list of Do's for menswear going into fall or that can be carried out for every season:

  1. Research! Every time someone talks to me about being stuck in a rut or not knowing what to pull together, I tell them to do some research. By research, I mean go online or to your favorite stores and look at their displays, look at their Lookbooks (every season the stylist and marketing team come up with the latest “looks”, which they turn into a book, hence, Lookbook.) These are great ways to get inspired on what goes with what and what you might want moving into the next season.
  2. Thin layers. Heading into the colder weather, you might need to start layering up. Having a thin sweater or zip-up on top of your collared button-up or shirt gives you the chance to peel it off and be more comfortable as the day progressively gets warmer.
  3. Naughty and Nice... sneakers, that is. One lesson I have learned from my husband on men’s style is to always have at least two pairs of sneakers: one for day, and one for play. A nice, simple, neutral-colored pair of sneakers can always dress down a pair of dark jeans and button-up. Throwing on your old-faithful running shoes for a date night on the river walk? Not so much.
  4. Quality over quantity. Men need this rule more than women simply because a man typically wears an article of clothing more times than a woman would. Women can wear a shirt once and already be sick of it, yet (from my own experience) a man can wear the same shirt three times a week and hardly notice. Invest in your work attire, even down to your underwear. That way the comfort of your clothes, from the quality of their material, will last as long as you do.
  5. When in doubt – belt it. Not sure what “business casual” means? Belt it. Throwing on a button-up and a pair of jeans can take you from Happy Hour to a night cap. Simple and put together, period.
