Some men are naturally gifted, knowing what to mix and match, appreciate investing in quality and know what to look for. Others are in need of guidance. Their foundation, wardrobe and fashion style is in need of improvement, a revolution of what and how to dress. Whether they want to impress in the workplace, at an event, wedding or going out, learning the art of style or discovering fashion means everyone benefits from mastering the basics.
These 7 fashion essentials will give every man a good foundation that will prepare them for whatever look is trying to be achieved, for whatever occasion.
1. Learn how to tie a tie
Wearing pants, a shirt or putting on a belt is a no brainer. A tie is different though. There are many occasions that call for a tie and knowing how to knot at least one knot perfectly is a must.
2. Keep well groomed
The appropriate hair cut, trimmed beard or shave will lift your look and impress. Find a style that suits your facial structure and stick with it.
3. Expose colour
Colour can be your best friend or worst enemy. While black and white is safe, colour adds personality to your look when done correctly. It’s important to know what colours complement and what colours clash.
4. Perfect, well-balanced attire
Firstly, you must know what to wear to each occasion. Once you know what to wear, it’s then all about how to wear it.
5. The best or nothing
Quality items are hard to come by. Look out for the finest fabrics, where it is made and how it was designed. Is it unique? A designer piece? A great wardrobe is one that screams welcome so invest, invest and invest.
6. Love a healthy body
A healthy body does wonders, both for your physical appearance and mental well-being. Treat it well and love your skin.
7. A designer and tailor
A bespoke or custom made piece is the best option, especially where the designer and tailor work together to create your unique item. The next option, if you have a ready-to-wear piece, is to visit a tailor. Whether it’s a suit or shirt, you deserve a perfect fit.
