Every woman wants her boyfriend to look his absolute best, but sometimes guys need a nudge in the right direction. If you think it’s time to refresh your man’s wardrobe and help him up the ante on his style game, use these tips and tricks to keep him trim and polished, from the boardroom to the beach.
How to Keep Your Man Looking Stylish
Collared shirts are a must-have. They can be simple with solid colors, or more complex with patterned prints to show off his colorful personality. A collared shirt instantly makes your man look more put together, and can easily be dressed up for the office or dressed down for drinks with friends.
The Right Pants
Nice pants and shorts bring a casual vibe to your dude’s wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean they make him look any less polished. Opting for high-quality denim and shorts options will ensure he looks good seven days a week, 365 days a year. Check out classic brands like Levi’s to find pant staples that have withstood the test of the time—and can stand up to daily wear and tear. When it comes to pants, the devil is in the details, and tailoring his pants to his exact measurements can transform the way they fit. Make an appointment with a local tailor (and drag him there if you must).
Looking polished means taking care of all the little details, and it’s important to consider the ways functional accessories can actually boost your man’s fashion game as well. Case in point: a great pair of sunglasses. Men’s sunglasses are available in a variety of shapes and shades, and the right pair can accentuate the face, complement his outfit, and most importantly, protect those eyes that you love to stare into.
A Classic Watch
Watches help men exude confidence, professionalism and organization. A high-quality watch is the quintessential accessory for every man, keeping him punctual and stylish in one fell swoop. Whether you opt for something metallic, like gold or silver, or stick to the traditional brown or black leather band, the right watch can easily amplify your man’s style.
A Rotation of Ties
Ties and bowties are a fun and festive way to bring a little more personality to your man’s ensemble. Ties are a men’s fashion staple, especially for the man that works in an office with a business professional dress code. Find a variety of ties for him at The Tie Bar; if he’s resistant to all of your fashion recommendations, this is one area to get him involved. Scope through the vibrant, sometimes-funny tie options and find something that sets off his favorite office outfits.
Perhaps he’s a bit more of a jokester; go for the laidback bow tie to bring some festive fun to the table.
Shoes may be the most telling fashion accessory—after all, Mom always said you could tell a lot about a man by looking at his shoes. From dress shoes to boat shoes, tennis shoes to stylish sneakers, there are endless styles to choose from. Practice a bit of restraint when you’re picking out shoes for him—while style is important, personality must shine through too. It’s all well and good to buy him those smart-looking dress shoes, but if he won’t wear them, you’ll be up a creek without a paddle.
Shopping with or for your man can be so much fun. And at the end of the day, with some potential disagreements or arguments resolved, he will feel more fashionable, comfortable and confident.
