Do you feel like you’re in a rut with your style? Sometimes it helps to update your clothes, but most of the time it just takes a few hacks to upgrade your style. From bold colors to taking a fashion risk, rekindle your inspiration by trying something new.
Try Different Prints
It’s easy to wear the same block colors on repeat. That’s where prints come in, they can take a bland outfit and make it interesting. If you’re new to wearing prints, then start with some simple ones, like stripes. Once you feel more confident, venture out into the world of graphic t-shirts. It does not mean you need to wear head-to-toe logos, but a statement shirt could elevate your outfit.
Step Away from The Sneakers
If you’ve become used to slipping on your sneakers whenever you head out the door, then it might be time to invest in some other options. Consider what else might match your style and be comfortable for daily wear. Every man should own a pair of good boots, they are ideal for winter, and they look great with everything from smart pants to jeans.
Don’t Be Scared of Color
Do you wear too much black? Dark colors feel easy and safe to wear, but they can become drab and repetitive. Experiment with fashion by adding different colors into your wardrobe. Find some bold shirts, pants, and jackets. Instead of only wearing white and black sweaters, seek out some colors like green and purple. There are no rules, but there are some tips.
- Pair a bright piece of clothing with neutral tones. Bold t-shirts often pair well with dark denim or black trousers.
- Don’t be afraid to add color to your outfit with your accessories. Whether it’s a pair of bright shoes, a scarf, or a stylish hat, accessories can transform any outfit.
- Choose colors that compliment your skin tone and don’t wash you out. Shades of pink and light greys can do this.
Make a List of Your Style Icons
This doesn’t mean you need to join Pinterest, make your list in a way that feels natural. Take some screenshots on your phone or bookmark some outfits you like on Instagram. Whatever your method of choice, start to take note of men that you think are stylish. It could be athletes, actors, or even someone you know. The chances are that these men pay attention to their style and plan their looks. By observing how they put their clothes together, you may feel a flicker of inspiration for your next shopping trip or, learn new ways to style your clothes.
Don’t Forget About the Fit
Try to avoid jeans, shirts, and sweaters that are too oversized and drown your frame. Go back through your clothes and see what flatters your physique, and put the rest to one side. When it comes to style, ill-fitting clothes can turn an outfit from cool to disappointing. Try to find clothes that are the right length and shape. Avoid anything that sags, droops, or just looks too big.
Everyone runs out of inspiration at times, but there are always quick and affordable ways to tweak your style that will give you a confidence boost.
