Tracking down a new suit or cool blazer may not seem as exciting as searching for the latest and greatest tool, but it’s just as necessary. Everyone knows the well-dressed man portrays success by what he wears. Plus, clothing boutiques don’t have to break the budget to help you achieve your ideal look.
If men were honest, they would probably say they don’t like to shop because they don’t know what they are looking for. Most have probably come to rely on and trust the women in their lives for that vital information.
It’s time for men to learn a few basic techniques to help them maneuver through men’s stores and find exactly what outfit or accessories will fit well with both their lifestyle and taste. Here are a few basic rules to help men on their way to style success:
Dress For the Job
Whether you’re digging a ditch, playing sports or dining at the most expensive restaurant in town, always dress appropriately. Nothing can make someone feel more out of place than being over or underdressed.
Always Wear Undershirts
Did you know the habit of always wearing an undershirt will actually lengthen the life of your outer shirts? They were designed to soak up perspiration. Don’t ever wear them as your outer shirt unless it’s sports-related.
Wear a Suit Frequently
For men that have to wear more professional pants and shirts everyday, an added jacket will help fill you out and complete the package.
Ties Are No Longer Necessary
Nowadays, you can open the top buttons of your shirt under your jacket and not wear a tie. It’s a very casual but stylish look. Of course, ties are always a good classic accessory,
but don’t get hung up on them. You can look just as stylish and professional without a tie!
Wear Shoes With Leather Soles to Work
Clothing boutiques salespeople will tell you that wearing leather-soled shoes to work is the “in” thing to do. Never wear sports-related shoes to work. Avoid rubber-soled shoes if possible for a classic look.
Wear a Hat
There was a time when every man and young boy wore a hat. Hats are great for winter days and protection from sun and inclement weather. Men who wear hats say they feel more respect from others.
Shopping in men’s clothing boutiques can be exciting. Let these few basic rules guide you with your fashion apparel choices, and you won’t dislike shopping any longer.
