Three Essential Looks For Men

Concerning the basic fashion “looks” and occasions, there are three that every man should know. These include business attire or “day” wear, weekend clothes or “casual”, and, of course, evening or “night out” wear. You do not need a lot of money if you keep in mind some helpful tips. In more detail, the three basic looks, that every man should know, are:

At Work – The quintessential work look for any man is a classic, well-tailored suit. It screams professionalism, style and class. The suit has gone through many revisions over the years but it will never stop being a cornerstone of men’s fashion. Probably the most important point to keep in mind when wearing a suit is to make sure that it fits properly. Suits are not items of clothing that you can purchase at a store and just throw on – there is nothing worse than seeing a man in suit with too long or short hems, or fits too loosely or tightly. It is very important to get it tailored to make sure that it hangs properly, fits well and most of all, makes the man wearing it look like a million bucks.

Relaxed Casual – Every man needs a great pair of jeans to hang out in for casual weekend errands and dates. Similar to a suit, the fit of a pair of jeans conveys a great deal about the man wearing them. The jeans should not be tight, nor should they be baggy; both of these looks were popular once upon a time, and now that time has passed. It is also important to keep in mind that every pair of jeans has a shelf life. Depending on how well a man takes care of his jeans, they can last years. But once non-stylish tears and holes make an appearance, it is definitely time to throw them away and invest in a new pair.

Night Out – Evening clothes should be different from business or casual attire, so you need a different “look” for social outings, whether romantic or friendly in nature. Dress shirts, dark toned slacks and comfortable loafers are pretty much standard for the semi-formal wear. Unless you are experienced in fashion styles, make sure you do not try anything avante garde, such as colors or styles that may not fit the occasion. Blazers and trench coats are best for cooler weather, stay away from coats that detract from the rest of your clothes. Looking good does not have to mean uncomfortable.
