Do you think your man is not fashionable enough? Is he getting into a new job and you want him to create a great impression at his future workplace? It’s time then to give him a quick style update!
Contrary to the popular belief that brushing up a man’s style needs tremendous effort, there are many quick and easy ways to help you make your guy look more stylish and with minimal effort. No need to follow fashion trends or be a regular at the ready-to-wear shows.
Men’s fashion is now equally fascinating, rich, and varied as that of women. Metrosexual is not an alien term for us. More and more designers are focusing equally, if not more, on men’s attire and accessories. But there are a few basic principles to keep in mind. Be it a Mohawk or a formal suit that your man is sporting, it is important to cultivate certain habits to boost his style.
Here are 5 simple way to achieve this.
Buy Him a Few Long-Sleeved Shirts
Short-sleeved shirts are breezy, but they aren’t as fashionable as their long-sleeved counterparts. This holiday season buy your man a few long-sleeved shirts.
The styles range from classic and business-like to casual and fashionable. Simply throw a few of them into the mix to spice up special occasions. The design again may vary from solid to striped and checked to texture-lined. But the trick here is to wear something that fits perfectly. Too baggy across the hips is a complete fashion disaster. The length is equally important, especially if you want him to wear it untucked.
The solution is to go for custom-made shirts. Size and fit is never a problem with tailored shirts. Besides, with tailored shirts you can almost always be assured about the grade of the fabric. Remember, quality is key when it comes to styling. Skimping in favor of lesser items won’t provide the same look and feel.
If you are looking for quality long-sleeved shirts at a bargain price, OwnOnly is a great online retail store to browse. They are known for their custom-tailored suits and shirts. Their business and casual shirts are made of fine fabrics imported from Italy. And when it comes to design, the company offers the best. Their team of designers caters to the individual measurements and requirements of each customer.

Style Up with Denim
There was a time when only the working class men wore jeans. But with time, this piece of clothing widely conquered the hearts of people from every walk of life. In fact, denim is the most powerful and versatile piece of clothing in your wardrobe. But again, there are few rules to wear it. Actually, just one – avoid the overly relaxed baggy fits.

Slim-fit is in, but if your guy is a little laid-back and not a fan of straight-legged jeans, remember that mid-rise styles are also popular and so are the slightly-tapered straight fits. Designers are just trying to make more room in slim-fit jeans without making them baggy.
Apart from the traditional blue, burgundy, greens and earthy tones are also in. They look better with bright and bold-colored shirts. Your man can even wear them with floral shirts to enhance his style quotient. And if he is a little experimental, white denims look cool.
The best part of jeans is that you don’t have to bother about fading colors. Slightly worn, rugged and naturally weathered jeans are still hot on runways.
Blazers are Super Trendy
They are sturdy, easily maintained and timeless items for his wardrobe. And if you are looking for something entirely au courant, peaked lapelled blazers – they are just happening right now. Style, design, cut and colors are aplenty to choose from! Based on your purpose, you can sport a laidback style, a classy look or a formal appearance.
Men today can sport a blazer of almost any color. Even metallic themes are in. These shiny, metallic blazers are available in varying shades from brown and blue to even shimmering pinks.
Accessories are the best way to up you man’s style quotient. It is probably one of the best and quickest ways to transform his style without compromising on his innate rugged manliness. Neckties are a very good place to begin. And if you think they are too formal, think again. Wear a funky, cool tie to add style to a shirt.
Belt is another accessory you need to style up his wardrobe. It is okay to own very few belts, as long as they are of high-quality leather. Go for simple designs with brass buckles as they work well with both suits and jeans. And when it comes to belts, there is one simple rule to follow – “Match your belt with your shoes,” says designer John Varvatos.

If your man wears glasses, there is a way to make this piece of accessory look great on him. Shop for youthful, current, and flattering eyewear. Other accessories to consider include winter scarves, cufflinks, tie clips and pocket squares. And while we are at it, add the final touch with a fabulous pair of shoes.
Ankle boots are a modern classic and also very dressy. For a more casual look, go for a pair of fashionable chunky loafers, peds or the iconic Converse sneakers. And don’t forget to put some shine on them.
Don’t Forget His Hairstyle
A change of hairstyle can change his entire look. Get an appointment with a stylist and browse for ideas. But remember, what looks good on someone can be a total disaster for your man.
A grooming expert will be better able to advise whether to go for short and styled or if au naturel would look best on him.
In conclusion, try to strike a balance between style and comfort for best results, even leaning a tad towards comfort. Some men are effortlessly stylish. That’s because they dress in a way that suits their character. Anything that is forced looks loud, tacky, and awkward. So while you are upping your guy’s style quotient, don’t forget to give equal consideration to his comfort factor.
