Fashion was once overlooked quite a bit in the mens department because it was so centred around women, but times are changing, now more than ever, and 2018 has been an unforgettable year in mens fashion. They’ve broken down doors and built new opportunities, all while creating new ideas that have become an absolute must-have in so many people’s lives. It’s also very exciting to witness, especially within yourself because you’re able to grow as a person, not only on the obvious outside, but the inside too.
A lot of people seem to forget about the impact that fashion has on us, but it can drastically change the way you feel about yourself within minutes by a specific item you put on your body. It’s insane how one little thing can change so much, and yet it does. Everyone has their own insecurities in their lives, and we try and deal with them on a daily basis so that we can keep a cool appearance underneath all of that anxiety. But know that fashion is your friend, and it has your back. There are no rules, you don’t have to follow anyone’s standards in the garments they choose to wear – you can be whoever you want to be, and never apologise for doing so, because it’s you. Keeping this is in your mind should give you that extra little boost to come out of your shell and break boundaries and moulds, as that’s essentially the only reason they’re there anyway.
One thing that you can never go wrong with, is having a touch of class. This isn’t something you require, but having the class card to put on the table sometimes can really do wonders to a situation, so knowing how you can bring this through when and where you want will always give you the upper hand.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.
If you’re like a lot of the rest of the population, then you’ll most likely rely on your phone to tell you the time, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t delve into the past a little. Watches are a beautiful accessory that can change the whole look of an outfit purely by what you decide to put around your wrist. In terms of class, you can’t go wrong with brands like Emporio Armani AR5905, who offer you a sleek design with black and gold colouring. This is simple and sombre, while giving you clarity and effortless luxury.
Don’t ever just assume that belts are there to hold your jeans or trousers around your waist, because they are so much more than that. You may have no need to wear one at all, but decide to loop one through anyway and see if it brings anything more – only to realise it does. Belts are a subtle way to add dominance and structure to a look. You can even go with a bold colour to stand out and clash with your outfit purposely to give people something to talk about. So if ever you tuck in that shirt of yours and still feel as though something is missing – it’s most likely that lack of leather.
Shoes glorious shoes – there are so many out there to choose from that it can at times be rather overwhelming. Not only is there different styles of shoes to think about, but you also have the choice of colour and material too, not to mention whether or not you should wear socks with them! This is why it’s acceptable in the fashion world to own a good few pairs, so that you have some for every occasion. Boots are also a very good type to own, especially now the Autumn is among us and the temperature is dropping. The obvious brown or black will go with any colour, so you never have to worry about fitting them around an outfit.
Most people will assume that they’re either a hat person or they’re not, but in fact, anyone can rock a good ol’ hat as long as they have the confidence to back it up. Flat caps are once again coming back on trend, so if you like this vibe, then try on a few and see how it makes you feel. You can never ever go wrong with a bit of tweed in your life – this is just a fact – so accumulate a little collection of your own and then pull out all the stops when you deem appropriate, and hold your head high as the flat cap dazzles all in its presence.
