Dress Your Man
Ladies, I know we want to believe our men look good in almost anything, but the truth is some of our brothers need a little help in the fashion department (XXL white tees and baggy jeans are a thing of the past).
It’s time to take a step back from revamping our closets, and take a moment to revitalize his. We can’t have our brothers looking crazy, right?!
In order to help guide the process, we have come up with a list of six of “your man’s fashion must-haves”, so that the next time you go shopping with him, you can help guide his taste and purchasing decisions. Now, let’s begin.
1. D.B. Wear
This spring is all about the D.B.s; double breasted coats, sweaters, jackets and cardigans. The great thing about double-breasted garments is that there is no single way of wearing them. Whether a D.B jacket is layered with a V-neck tee or a button up, the look is always effortless and chic on our men.
2. The Whenever, Wherever, Whatever Shoe
Every man needs a shoe that can be worn everywhere. Your man’s wardrobe is incomplete, if he doesn’t own a pair of suede bucks. This trend has been around for what seems forever, and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Next time your man is looking for that shoe to wear to work with his suit or to dinner with some jeans, make sure to mention the bucks.
3. The New Jeans
A nice pair of fitted jeans is great, but Chinos are a must-have. Chinos are the versatile lightweight pant that can be worn for just about any occasion, a staple item in every man’s closet. While beige and camel are classic colors, dare your man to go outside the box. With spring around the corner, a splash of color to your man’s lower half can’t be a bad thing.
4. Off the Court Sneaker
It’s time to introduce our men to the dressy and casual sneaker, the sneaker that should be worn off the court. Classic high-top sneakers made of something other than canvas make a casual outfit resonate. Have him couple white suede high-tops with something unexpected like a bright pair of chinos, and you’d be surprised how sexy he looks.
5. The Modern Day Varsity Jacket
Remember back in high school when all the athletes wore those oversized nylon jackets with their names on it? Well, these jackets have managed to come back in style, sort of. We’re calling them the modern day varsity jackets. They’re made of materials like suede instead of nylon, and they fit a lot better than they used to. If you’re concerned that this trend is too juvenile, look for darker colors like browns, grays, and blacks.
6. Timeless Timepiece
The final must-have item on our list is the sleek, simple and stylish watch. Every man must invest in a stainless steel timepiece that can instantly turn up the sophistication no matter what the occasion. These watches are extremely versatile, and can be worn with casual and dressy wear. Plus, you know you hate when your man is running late, so with a great quality watch on his arm, he’ll always be on time.
