tips & trends: men's edition
I often post about tips, tricks, and trends for women, but haven't touched on the importance of male fashion. Often, my guy friends will ask me how to put an outfit together or ask what is in style in the current moment. This blog is to help out any male out there who is curious to try new things regarding clothing, but aren't quite sure where to start!
Tip #1: A nice pair of sneakers goes a long way
Having a clean looking pair of sneakers can quickly and effectively elevate each outfit you wear
Some nice-looking sneaker brands include Nike, New Balance, Adidas, Gucci, and Vans.
Pair these sneakers with joggers, chinos, or sweatpants.
If you can keep them clean, try choosing a white or cream colored pair, so they'll match with everything!
Trend #1: Heavy Chains: Necklaces & Bracelets
Recently, chains for men have been a very popular trend that people have fallen in love with.
Wearing gold or silver chains can add extra spice to any ordinary outfit.
Pair the chain with a turtleneck to be more formal or a tank to make the look more casual.
Tip #2: Wear Neutrals: It looks more professional and classy
Neutrals will look effortlessly handsome each time you wear them and they will not go out of style.
It is much easier to match with neutrals than bright, fluorescent colors
Neutrals make you look professional, so for your work, these types of colors would help people take you seriously
They are timeless and can be worn more frequently without anyone noticing, so you will spend less money on clothing.
Trend #2: Varsity Jackets are coming back hot
In the early 90's, variety jackets were a huge hit, everyone had to have one. They are finally coming back in 2022.
These wide jackets can give a heightened chic element to a regular looking outfit.
They can make you look preppy and sophisticated or athletic and comfortable, so they are extremely versatile.
Some can be funky with embroidery, but you can also buy plain jackets.
They will keep you warm on a chilly summer evening.
Tip #3: Don't be afraid to leave your comfort zone
It's not uncommon for guys to just wear what their friends are wearing, but if that isn't your style, it's okay to stray from the norms.
If you like something that looks unique or a bit out there, try it out anyways, because this could encourage others to experiment with clothing as well.
You will look different from everyone else and people will be drawn to you.
Trend #3: Bermuda Shorts: Hottest Hit of the Summer
Bermuda shorts are so comfortable and a great summer look.
They can be dressed up or down, as you could wear them to a dinner on a warm night or the beach with some friends.
They come in all colors, so you can buy them to match accordingly with your closet.
Happy shopping to all of the men out there!
