STYLE: MEN, FASHION CLOTHING AND TIPS



To understand how to create style, men must know that it can only be achieved by carefully balancing 3 factors: personality, physical appearance and lastly, clothing.

It's not about looking like a celebrity, movie star or professional model, but it's about getting the ideal look being who you are.

Consider these points:

1. You must accept that you need to improve your appearance from head to toe.
2. You must spend time watching (at least once a week), images of current fashion.
3. You must renew the clothing in your closet in order to join the trend.



Now, let's see what things you can do to meet the goal, starting with:

CLOTHING



- Copy and wear: Before 'creating' your own looks, we recommend you look at what fashion advisers have already prepared for everyone on the runways. Copy the concepts that best fit your style and then wear them, is that simple! In a few days you will start getting compliments from your friends.

- Outfit plan: You must live above the level of simply 'wearing whatever'. If choosing the right outfit on the spot is still too complicated, the plan ahead. A few good practices will be preparing your clothing set the night before going to work; a few days prior to a romantic date, etc.





- Old clothes: Don't fall in love with clothes... they are just fabric, threads, buttons and zippers! Get rid of your old pieces asap (ok, ok... everything except your worn out denim jeans right?)

- Size: Today's style trend for men is to wear clothing that fits your size; not bigger or smaller.

- Colors: Learn to mix and match colors among your clothes and accessories. Find here some examples on how to create great variations.

PERSONALITY & PHYSICAL APPEARANCE

Find here a slideshow with books on this matter, as well as a few lines with some of our own concepts on...

PERSONALITY:
Since this is not a blog about psychology, we will not go deep into this subject. Nevertheless, we do suggest you to find help in clearly defining it as this factor adds up in your overall style; and maybe go even a little further, find your purpose in life and make sure your values are well substantiated. Believe us, people highly appreciate meeting a man with a clear personality.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
- Weight: Make your best effort to meet your ideal weight; your image will be optimum and you will enjoy health. - Posture: Is little help for your image to just dress well but to hunch over while standing up or walking. Put your mind in correcting your posture and you will immediately see positive reactions of people around you. Find books on 'Posture' in the above slideshow! - Hair: Visit a hair stylist and ask her/his expert advice on what hair cut will be better fit your face shape and color skin. - Hygiene: It sounds too basic to say it, but it is necessary to emphasize it. Take a bath, always brush your teeth after meals and keep your nails clipped and clean.
