2 Things Men Should Remember When Dressing Up

*Collaborative post.

 

Admittedly, men have it a little easier when it comes to fashion. When all else fails, a well-fitting shirt and pants can work for almost anything. If you need to get fancy, there are a few designs of suits to choose from. As men’s attires are simple, we can virtually mix and match almost anything.

However, given how simple things are for us, it often becomes a little bit more of a challenge on the occasions where we’re supposed to dress up, especially during winter. While there are things that can help with getting this look started (a brief look into our Bogner men’s vests, jackets, and pants during the cold days or nights) there’s a lot more work involved when it comes to styling our looks for those special occasions.

If you’re looking to add a little more style and flair to your wardrobe without going overboard, here are two tips you can follow:

  1. Your look depends on you, not just on your clothes

Clothes do make the man, but on the occasions that they don’t, it’s the man who carries the clothes. You can have the best clothing in the world but if you don’t have the confidence or the personal style to pull it off, you might not achieve what you want. There’s a subtle art to carrying men’s clothing, a mixture of your own personal esteem and a reflection of how you carry yourself.

In simpler terms, the best thing you can start with is your posture. Clothing for men often emphasizes a wider frame, encouraging the wearer to occupy as much space as possible and enhancing areas, such as the shoulders. You’re supposed to solidly occupy the space that your clothes do, and simple things such as straightening your back and squaring your shoulders can work wonders.

 

  1. Less is more

There’s an inherent expectation for men to pull off more by doing less, and this is best exemplified in how formal attire works for them. A few things are as striking or as suitable as a three-piece suit for a reason; the simpler the outfit is, the easier it may be for a man to carry it. Men’s clothing should conform between being utilitarian and stylish—not too much, but not too little that it limits your individuality.

One of the best ways to boost your style without being too conspicuous is wearing an accessory or two. Things like cufflinks, wristwatches, rings, and necklaces can all be incorporated tastefully into a man’s wardrobe with little to no work needed, though great care must be taken when choosing these accessories. Sometimes, just a single accessory can ruin an entire look, so choose carefully.

If you keep these tips in mind while dressing up, you can avoid some mistakes that could cost you your self-confidence once you step out of your room. There is a perfect time to dress up and the right way to do it. If you do this carefully and with much thought, you can stand out at any party or occasion you attend.

With the 2016 TV BAFTA awards ceremony coming up on May 8th, many of us can’t wait to see who is wearing what on the red carpet. I will be paying special attention to the fellas this year, as most of them always look so dapper. Some of the men I LOVE seeing on the red carpet because of their brilliant sense of style are – Idris Elba, Leonardo Dicaprio, Michael Fassbender, amongst others.

Some of the famous looks these stylish men are usually spotted rocking on the red carpet are can be achieved from shopping at House of Fraser.

Here are some male style ideas for inspiration:

Smart Commuter Suit

This look is a regular on the red carpet. Most men go for this smart commuter look, as it is a safe option. The well-known comedian; Peter Kay from the BBC sitcom – Peter Kay’s Car Share, usually goes for this look and looks very smart rocking it. Likewise, property developer Simon Foster from the gripping psychological TV drama – Doctor Foster, is often seen in a shirt, trousers and blazer.

The Formalwear specialists Skopes Palmer, have made this outfit super comfortable to wear thanks to its high wool content, water repellency, stain resistant coating, two-way stretch, and its unique odour resist `Fresh Finish’. It is a perfect suit for the red carpet, work and everyday use in general. No wonder the celebs love it!

The smart casual look is very easy to achieve. All you will need to nail this look is a formal shirt – blue, black, white or red would look fab, and tuck it into a pair of some nice denim designer jeans and put on a blazer in a similar colour with your jeans, and you are good to go.

One of the UK’s leading artisan bakers, and celebrity chef; Paul Hollywood from BBC TV show – The Great British Bake Off, is also known for regularly stepping out rocking a smart casual outfit. This look can take you from the office, straight to the pub/bar easily.
