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.

Spring Jackets for the Man in your Life

It is starting to feel like spring. The sun is out today and it feels a bit warmer. But I hear we are going to have a white Easter in England. Can you imagine that? I hope a miracle happens and the snow never appears. The snow is so exhausting now. I just want some normal spring weather. Is that too much to ask?

When spring finally appears for real, I will be confident enough to keep all our winter gear back into storage. I heard some proactive people bundled their winter gear into storage only to dig them out again when the Beast from the East appeared. I am happy I didn’t have to do that.

A new weather means a different type of clothing. Spring fashion is all about lighter and brighter pieces. So I am looking forward to the prints and florals hitting the stores soon. With that in mind, I have been doing some online window shopping and popping items into various wish lists. I have my eye on a few pieces for the myself, the kids and the hubby. And I am hoping to get them soon.

Spring jackets is high on the list for us all, especially the hubby. He has not shopped for spring items in ages, so there are loads of gaps in his wardrobe to fill.

Here are a few Ellesse spring jackets I have been eyeing lately.

 

Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Charcoal £55.00

I really like this Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Charcoal jacket. It is a beautiful light jacket with hand pockets and a cool branding on the chest. The elasticated trims to cuffs and hem are amazing features.

I hope to grab this piece for him really soon. The design is so amazing. Do you agree?

 

Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Yellow £50.00

The colour of this Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Yellow was the first thing that got my attention. I think it is a great spring jacket to have in the wardrobe this season. It features a half zip fastening with front zip pockets, with further detailing to arms and chest.

Many may shy away from this piece because of how bright it looks, but I think it is a beauty. Would your man like this?

 

Ellesse Mont 2 Cagoule Camo £70.00

This stylish Ellesse Mont 2 Cagoule Camospring jacket is my current favourite spring jacket for men. I love Camo pieces. The designs are always so beautiful and this jacket right here is no exception. The jacket features an underarm zip pull, a large kangaroo style pouch, a drawstring hood and an elasticated hem.

Are you a fan of Camo designs like me? Do you find them stylish?

 

 

Ellesse Sortoni Jacket Anthracite £50

This Ellesse Sortoni Jacket Anthracite jacket would be popular this spring because of the simplicity of it. It looks good and does the work beautifully, which is what most men who cannot be bothered with fashion need. I like the fact that it has a full zip front with fastened hand pockets.

I can see the hubby loving this particular spring jacket a lot.

 

Ellesse Caserta Hoodie True Red/White £55.00

This Ellesse Caserta Hoodie True Red/White spring jacket is another favourite mine. I love the colours – red, white and navy blue. The mixture of colours is such a beautiful design. It looks super sporty and casual which works for dressing down days.

I can picture my man rocking this jacket with a pair of black jeans and white trainers.

A Man in a Suit

So today I bring to you a different outfit post. The M has taken over!!

There is nothing dapper than a man in a suit, a man in a well fitted suit always looks good. There are so many suit designers and shops around today, but it can be very hard to find quality amongst them. Many are not as good as they should be and that is the reason we have many men walking around in ill fitted suits. Honestly,  I do a double take at some suits I see. There is nothing worse than an ill-fitted suit!

Dobell got in touch with Fashion and Style Police some weeks ago, and offered me the golden opportunity to select some pieces for a man in my life and I was super excited. It is a blog takeover kind of, with M strutting his fashion stuff this week and I am enjoying it.

For those who have never heard of Dobell before, it is a leading online formal wear store for men and boys of all ages, established in 2003. It was voted best value formal wear in the UK by the Daily Mail, and the pieces and design speak for themselves. This is a quality brand right here.

This was my first time shopping on the Dobell website and I found it super easy to navigate my way through. I was also spoilt for my choice, there were so many options to choose from but I finally settled on a contemporary suit (blazer, trousers and waistcoat), a red silk twill tie, and a light blue shirt. I was happy to see them look so dapper on the mister. I went for this contemporary look because it is always in fashion and it is so easy to style.

The quality of this suit and the fine tailoring is impeccable. I am in love.

I recommend Dobell 100%. These guys definitely know their stuff!

His shoes are also giving me life right now. I am so into quality shoes at the moment. There is nothing as cool as a man or woman rocking cool stylish shoes.
