How To Dress Down And Be “Stylish”

Dressing up comes normal for some men, but you will find that many men struggle with “down sizing” their apparel. Most men feel that it is better to over do it than look like they don’t belong. Men and their suits are most of the time the reason why they look over dressed, but maybe there is hope for your massive suit collection. Here are 5 ways to dress down using what you already have in your closet.

  1. Get rid of the tie

Even though ties sometimes add details to your look, a way to dress down is to retire the tie for a while. Try leaving a few buttons unbuttoned or go with clean look and button all the way to the top. dress-down-casual

  1. Leave the hard bottoms in closet

A fresh pair of white or black snickers are hot now. Not saying that throwing any pair of old converse sneakers on will look good, but putting a clean, classic, but stylish pair of sneakers with a neat suit will make you look cool and up to date. Doesn’t matter your age, this allows you to look laid-back ready any casual occasion.

  1. Use light color shirts, like grey or tan

White looks more formal in a suit, while darker colors often sends a different message than you want to portray. That leaves grey and a light tan as great options. These two light colors tones down your look, while allowing your look to be crisp. L here for options.

  1. Crew neck shirts and sweaters are still in

Many feel these work great with suit pants, adding a sporty twist. I must say that I agree with this option, making it the preferred look for any Friday night, first date!

  1. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

To sum it up, get out your feelings, and make some changes! Boldness to change around suit combinations and styles will not just save you money, but allow you to have a wide variety of options to choose from when selecting your Sunday brunch look.

Mens Blazer Tips For This Fall

The autumn is a great time for fashion because we can wear more than we do during the summer. That means scarves, jackets, and overcoats –layers of possibility. Perhaps I’m most excited about gqlondon07-300x207again wearing mens blazers. This season there are a lot of new ones, whether you’re wearing them with men designer suits or with jeans and a t-shirt.

First off, add a pocket square to your collection. Think silk and in bold colors or classic. One of each maybe.

Last year sports coats were all grey herringbone; this year they’re brighter and more colorful.

The double breasted jacket is back big time this year as a nod to ’70s fashion. You should be aware of a sharper peak, a wider lapel, a more tailored fit–high shoulders and slimmer waist– and a little shorter in length than its forerunners.

Pair it with a brightly colored shirt and a plaid tie and feel like the best dressed man in the room. A fine-gauge turtleneck is also a fine pairing.

When it comes to an overcoat, don’t overdo it –if you’re wearing a double-breasted below, go single-breasted on top. The car coat, or a light camel coat is a great addition.

More Tips on How to Wear Fall Mens Designer Suits

what-a-pane-gucci-02-237x300Mens designer suits for the fall are trending in a few ways we’d like to discuss. Last week we talked about the double breasted blazer. This week let’s start off the cuff.

Mens fashion suits are made with heavier materials today, in slimmer cuts. One of the best ways to aggrandize this look is by adding a cuff. It shows attention to detail in any luxury suit, it accentuates your socks, and the way your shoes relate to the pants.

Speaking of shoes, the ones that are in this season are heavy-duty wingtips. Thick-soled, slim-profiled, chocolate, gray or black classic wingtips. And since most are made with waterproof materials on the bottom, wear them throughout the winter. If you can afford them, monkstrap shoes are also hot. Because they’re still so new on the runways they won’t be affordable for most until next year, but they’re definitely a very classic British shoe worth knowing about.

Brown fine mens suits are especially nice to match with your new wingtips. Buy them in warm tones that work with your skin color. And if you can’t find one that works for you, choose windowpane mens fashion suits in gray. It’s a good look.
