When creating a wardrobe, you will often focus first on the style and quality of the clothing you are buying. While these things are important, taking your style to the next level requires a little more. Shoes, belts, accessories, hairstyle, as well as the match and fit of your clothes, are key to creating a complete look.
The right pair of shoes can elevate any outfit. Selecting the right style and color of shoe will demonstrate good taste and attention to detail. Make sure the shoes you are wearing are clean and in good shape. There should be no visible scuffs, dirt, or other marks. Invest in a few basic but versatile pairs of shoes like brown brogues, loafers, minimalist sneakers, and a black Oxford or Derby. For warmer weather, you will need a pair of leather sandals or a pair of slides. Look for shoes in a classic shape and style but in an exciting color or material to really stand out.
Belts are functional as well as an important way to add appeal to your clothing choices. They also work to break up more monotone outfits like suits, for example. Furthermore, belts help to define a break at your midsection to your lower body. Most men limit themselves to black and brown belts; however, belts are a great way to add color and interest to your wardrobe. Handcrafted men’s designer belts come in several colors and are an excellent addition to your closet.
Accessories are what make a look cohesive and also allow you to showcase your individual style. In general, men own ties and a watch, but there are other important accessories to consider. High-quality sunglasses, wallets, and messenger bags all make you look polished and demonstrate good taste. Other accessories to consider are hats, chains, pocket squares, and cufflinks. Accessories help extend your wardrobe by making outfits composed of the same clothing items unique each time you wear them.
Even the best outfit can’t make up for a sloppy or ill-suited haircut. To look your best, you should always sport a fresh cut. You also need to consider your face shape when choosing a type of cut. Talk to your stylist about different blade and scissor options, and don’t be afraid to change things up and try something new. Selecting the right products for your hair is essential to keep it looking well styled. Your stylist can also point you to products of high quality that will suit your hair type and style. A great hairstyle will increase your self-esteem and make you feel more confident.
The most stylish and highest quality clothes will fall flat if they clash. You can’t go wrong with mostly neutral colors with a pop of color added. If you are looking for more color, try complementary colors rather than “matching” different colors. Using too many shades that are too similar is sure to clash; on the other hand, complementary colors will look stylish and bold. You can also ensure your clothes match by selecting all of your staple clothing items within a particular set of colors you like. By sticking with a few combinations that you know work together well, your clothes will match no matter what you pull out of the closet on a given day.
Don’t settle for a fit that is not quite right. Start by making sure you know what your correct size is. To find clothes that fit correctly, you need to know your neck, chest, arm length, waist, and inseam measurements. If something doesn’t fit you off the rack, you should get it tailored. Many men’s clothing stores will offer this service for free. The perfect fit will make your clothes look high quality and bring out the best in your figure.
Paying attention to these finer details of men’s fashion will help you look stylish, well-groomed and make sure you get the most out of your clothes.
