Men: 4 Style Rules You Should Never Break

Hey guys! This post is for you! Don't say I never cater to the male demographic. ;)

Looking your very best is something that almost everyone aspires to, but with so much conflicting fashion advice on TV and in the magazines, it can be tricky to know what you should do to get ahead in the style stakes.

Here, we take a look at four style rules that you should never break.

Dress for the occasion

 Have you ever noticed how good you feel when you pull out all the stops? If you’ve got a special occasion coming up, make sure that you put the effort in. Often, you’ll enjoy the event much more. Similarly, don’t feel that you have to go overboard all the time. A well-tailored blazer with some smart jeans might be all you need when it comes to a night out on the town.

Go for style instead of trend

The shops are full of new ranges and lines each and every season, but this doesn’t mean that you have to rush out and buy everything. Instead of trying to follow fashion, develop your own personal style and make clothing choices based on this. It’ll be much cheaper, and you’ll become known for your impeccable sense of style rather than just for being a clotheshorse!

Less is more when it comes to quantity

Most of us have half a wardrobe full of clothes that we just never wear. Not only is this a waste of money, but it’s also taking up valuable storage space in your home. Rather than constantly buying new items, focus on adding just a few items each season that will last the long haul. This approach will allow you to buy high quality items and even a few designer pieces instead of endless cheaper items that you’ll never wear.

Comfort is key

No matter how good you look, it just doesn’t work if you aren’t comfortable. People can always tell if someone isn’t enjoying their outfit, and it will never impress anyone. If those shoes you like are pinched and leave your feet feeling sore, ditch them. You’ll have a much better time and won’t have to put up with the after effects for days afterwards! When you buy online, you can try purchases on in the comfort of your own home before making a commitment. This could be a good plan if you’re looking for something that you’ll feel great in.  

Sticking to these four key areas, you should find that fashion and shopping becomes much more fun. Remember that if you can’t enjoy your wardrobe choices, what’s the point?

Do you have your own set of style rules? We’d love to hear them!
