When you want to look great, you'll find that you can skip all of those tired style guides and cut right to the chase. Men's fashion has the advantage of being impressively timeless, and when you want to look like a classic gentleman, there are just a few factors to remember.
Less Is More. The guys we tend to think are the coolest are always the ones who seem to care the least about their appearance. Johnny Depp and Ryan Gosling will never be accused of trying too hard, but you will notice that every piece that they choose fits them perfectly. All a man needs to look great is a clean white t-shirt, dark wash jeans and a cool moto or distressed denim jacket.
Signature Items. If you select a few staple items for your wardrobe, you never need to worry about variety. Leather jackets are always going to have a lot of appeal. Aviator and wayfarer sunglasses portray a cool, vintage vibe. A comfy, but well-fitted plaid shirt will give you the effortless look you're going for.
Fancy Footwork. We all know the saying, “you get what you pay for,” and that holds true when it comes to footwear. Many boots and oxfords for men have the smooth lines and sleek style that allow you to create a classic look. Don't give into the idea that men can only have one pair of shoes. A few pairs in black and brown will offer versatility, while maintaining a modern image.
Keep It Tidy. When you want to look put together, skip the sloppy look. Make sure that you're wearing clean clothes that have been ironed. Trim any stray threads. This is something that can take a so-so outfit and bump it up to impressive and put-together.
If you're ready to dress well, without breaking the bank, consider the above tips. Your style should be an extension of who you are. If you consider yourself simple or minimal, portray that through your clothing. Feeling bold or eccentric? Don't be afraid to take some fashion risks.
