We live in a time when men’s fashion becomes as important and relevant, as women’s fashion. That’s why you can simply forget all the basic rules of how to wear men’s clothing, as many brands and designers offer so much new styles and fits that are so different from each other. It’s true, when you enter the clothing store you simply don’t know what you really need. That’s why most of men try to pick the first that grabbed their attention in order to be in trend. As you already understood, that’s not the right way. If you want to look stylish and buy appropriate clothing, then this post is meant exactly for you.
Men are creatures who will continue to buy uncomfortable clothing hoping, that some day they will get the right result. If you are a beginner then read carefully this post, as I will tell you all the secrets and will show you how to style the clothes for any occasion, avoiding all possible mistakes.Let’s start our trip into menswear fashion world.
It’s all about size.
Indeed, everything count on your clothing size and it’s very important to choose the appropriate jacket and trousers, so that they do not look baggy or too skinny on you. No matter if it’s formal pantsuit, casual jeans or simple tee, it’s very important that everything fits you perfectly. I mean, some dudes look like as they borrowed all their clothing from their dads or grandpas, I ain’t saying that borrowing clothing from your relatives is a bad idea, yet try to choose clothes that do not look baggy on you.
How to know that clothing sits on you wrong?
Well, sometimes it is visible to the naked eye. Any way let me share with you some of the main “wrong” fit signs.
• Shirts – if it features fabrics that dangles at the sides, then believe me, it doesn’t fits you, as real fitted shirt should feature straight line from the armpit to the very bottom, while shirt sleeves have to end at the base of the thumb.
• Jeans – it’s quite difficult to choose the appropriate fit, as everything depends on your body type and your personal preferences. Some like skinnies, others loose-fitted. Well, the most important thing is for jeans to fit your ankle. They should not be too long, too short, loose-fitted. If you are beginner then I advise you to try Slim-fit or straight-fit jeans, as these styles can be worn with various footwear and it’s quite hard to choose wrong ones.
• Tees – to know that this T-shirt really fits you, just raise up your hands upon your head NOTE! T-shirt should not rise above the navel in the abdomen area.
These are the most important and basic things that you should keep in your mind before buying clothes. In the next posts I will tell you how to style and combine different fits and looks.
