Fashion Tips All Men Should Know

Here are a few fashion essentials all modern men should be aware of. Many of them are not even about fashion but help you look the part. This will be good news for the army of men out there not wanting to follow fashion but still wanting to impress.

Improve your posture

Perhaps the biggest fashion tip of all has nothing to do with fashion itself. It’s about improving your posture when you walk, when you stand and when you sit. An army of office workers today slouch at their desk and walk like their grandparents.

Stand straight, pull back your shoulders, push that ribcage out and look straight ahead, not down to the ground. You will exude confidence and for a man, this is worth much more than what the most expensive suit can achieve and is what makes you manly in the eyes of women: confidence to tackle all of life’s difficulty, confidence in your ability to overcome adversity.

Look after your clothes and they will look after you

To store your shirts and suits in better conditions and for longer, use wide and stout coat-hangers. Thin metal hangers leave creases and sometimes stain the fabric. With heavy suits, they even get bent. Wide and rounded plastic hangers are cheap and do the job just fine, no need to go for the more expensive wooden hanger.

Learn how to repair a button. Man is in the 21st century and many live alone. There is no point in relying on a woman to do something as simple as that. In fact, it makes you look manlier in that you do not shy away from manipulating something as insignificant and small as a needle and helps you ascertain your independence.

And the unavoidable fashion tips

It is OK to have a few mismatched items of menswear. Men are men, they do not have handbags that need to match shoes, gloves that need to match scarfs and hats, matching earring and necklace sets and so on. So if you wear a brown belt and dark brown shoes with black trousers, it’s not the end of the world as long as your clothes look smart and clean. Don’t stress unduly about colour coordination.

Since when was a denim shirt a proper shirt? Leave them alone or if you really love denim, at least don’t wear them together will denim jeans. Denim shirts are best worn over a t-shirt or vest when the weather is neither warm nor cold enough to warrant a sweater or jacket.

Wear your clothes with pride and care. No more hanging trousers (since when was that fashionable?), no ties askew, shirts-sleeves buttoned up, shoes well-polished.

To carry on the topic of hanging trousers, underwear is just that – best kept under clothes so please, no trousers hanging half-way down the bum, no designer-branded underwear elastic band showing above the trouser belt. No guy wants to know what underwear brand you favour.

Use these fashion essentials in your everyday life without becoming a fashion slave. Improve your posture and watch your physical and psychological well-being improve, not to mention your success with women. Focus not on colour coordination but watch that what you wear is smart and wear proudly.

What Men Should Consider For Clubwear

b

While it is a common notion that it is easier for a man to get dressed than it is for a woman, many men still commit classic mistakes in choosing proper clubwear when they go out to party. More often than not, men who look funny and/or ridiculous are hardly aware of it and to be honest, it is best to get an opinion from a woman.

Here are some fashion tips that will help guide you in your wardrobe selection for that next hot night out! Well, here’s the news, there are real and existing rules that apply to men when it comes to choosing the right clubwear to wear. Even if you are a fashion expert, I am certain you may be surprised by what I feel are the do’s and don’ts to follow when selecting appropriate partying attire.

1) Never Overdress

In general, men should never go to a club overdressed except in the rare occasion that you are coming straight from work but then that’s another problem to deal with. Remember this point, a club is a place for partying and neither formal nor business attire has a place here. Barney from the popular T.V. show “How I Met Your Mother” may make it seem that suits are cool to wear all the time including when you go out, but this works only in certain clubs, and those are the ones the really cool people are not in. Wearing a tie is acceptable only if it is a tie that is absolutely appropriate otherwise, it is never advisable to show up to a club in one. In my opinion it is still best to reserve the tie for work.

2) Men Should Never Wear Sunglasses In A Club

You may see rockstars and celebrities wearing sunglasses at night so you may think it is OK for you to do the same. Some celebrities may have a point when they state that they use them due to the many flashes from all the paparazzi but more than likely they are hiding the bags under their eyes from staying up too late. Although a pair of cool sunglasses may look good on you outside on a sunny day, they absolutely should never be worn in a club. The sun does not shine inside a club, and wearing shades while clubbing is absolutely not cool no matter what you think.

3) Men Should Never Wear Slacks And Should Always Wear Jeans

Despite what you may have heard, clubs don’t discriminate on age, but they are always only for the young at heart. Slacks can easily make a man look old regardless of how good they look on him. When going to a club, it is always best to stick to jeans. This rule, however, is to mean only straight cut, blue or dark-colored denims. White-washed jeans can make a man look short, and colored jeans tend to look loud and detestable. Skinny jeans on men, especially the really tight ones that some men are wearing lately on the other hand, died with the king so once and for all, say goodbye to them.

4) Always Wear The Appropriate Shoes

Regardless of color, rubber shoes and sneakers are always inappropriate clubwear. When going clubbing, a better footwear choice is either a pair of dress shoes or loafers. Sandals are great for the beach, but the club is not a beach and using socks will not improve the look. A man who can remember where he is will never commit the mistake of being a fashion nightmare, and remember women pay attention to shoes on a man regardless of what they say.

5) The Right Shirt

Most clubs will not allow t-shirts even if it cost you three or four hundred dollars. It is common knowledge that most hip clubs require their patrons to wear collared shirts before even considering allowing them in. If you insist on using one, when going to a club in a t-shirt, always remember to match it up with a sport coat or jacket. This easy look is great for all types of men regardless of height or build. A simple button-down shirt with sleeves rolled up just right below the elbow will always be a winner, though. This simple, classic look works for all ages at all times. It never gets outdated and will never be a mistake. A glittering shirt, however, should be worn only in the circus. Unless you form part of the lighting ensemble for the nightclub, your glittered shirt has no place there.
