5 Menswear Tips To Put A Little Swag In Your Step

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    It’s easy to feel restricted to the 3-piece paradigm often associated with casual menswear: shirt, jeans, sneakers.

    Free yourself of the typical menswear confines and upgrade your wardrobe this season by putting a little swag in your step. Here are a few tips to help you get fresh by ditching the stale old trends of the past.

    1.

    Not Skinny But Fitted

    Here is one of the few times where medium trumps GIANT. When fitting yourself for new denims avoid the ultra-baggy and super-skinny jeans at all costs. For a more fashionable, and sophisticated look try a pair that actually fit (Gasp! What a notion…jeans that fit!). The trend in denim wear right now is a fitted leg, go ahead and give it a try.

    A Tailored Suit

    A tailored suit is the essential menswear piece this season. In particular the European style cut is a big hit in the fashion world, with every fashion house from Hugo Boss to Zara producing variations. The suit is no longer strictly for formal occasions and Sunday service. Pair your fitted suit with a simple tee and some boat shoes to make it work for an evening on the town or a casual lunch.

    Earth Tones

    This season browns, greens and beige’s are making a comeback in  a major way. Leave the neon’s to your accessories and try on a monochromatic, earth tone look. There’s nothing more sexy than subtlety in menswear.

    The Non-Nike

    Nike’s are great, and classic and epic. We’ll give them that. But try to shake your footwear game up a little by venturing outside of the orange box. Try different types of shoes (ie a boot or a boat shoe), and give the sneaker a break. Dare to be different and uber-stylish by going for the non-nike.

    Accessorize

    There is no better way to add pop to an outfit than by adding interesting accessories. Particularly in you are stuck in the 3-piece menswear model (shirt-jean-sneaker) a good accessory will instantly add another dimension to your look. Hats, belts, sunglasses, bracelets and watches all provide avenues for you to accessorize.
