ASK SUIT: How do I look classic, not boring with an everyday outfit?
That is a great question. Classic could be far from the first choice for many men when talking about looking stylish. Classic is a term for a style that could not only fit many different situations but also stay timeless for much longer, it is perfect for an everyday outfit.
The difference between looking classic and stylish versus classic and completely uninteresting can be quite small. In many cases, these factors can be changed by minor details in your everyday outfit. If you want to refrain from a boring look, do not worry. We have some small tips that can help you stay on trend while dressing classic.
- Add Texture or Color Accents
In your everyday outfit you can always add a bit of texture or a pop of color with a good accessory. Belts, socks, bags, glasses… can be small touches to spice up any of your looks.
Do not over accessorize but do not be afraid to add accents either.
- The Fit Should Be Just Right
Well fitted clothing is the epitome of classiness. To stay classy do not wear anything that is too oversized nor too snug. Make sure to go for more long-lasting pattern designs instead of just the latest cut that has made its debut this season and will be out of style next week.
- Keep an Eye on the Colors
You can use monochromes in neutral colors, and add a couple of slightly different (but matching) shades to update the classic look with a more modern spin.
You can always add color through smaller items or more muted shades.
- The Difference Is in the Details
As always when it comes to style, detail is the key. To dress classy in a everyday outfit, it is always important to keep the small things in mind. Upgrade your t-shirts, iron your clothes, get rid of any graphic t-shirts. These small things will help you stay looking well dressed all the same time.
- Have a Good Wardrobe Base
If you want to make a good impression with your everyday outfit, it is important to have a good wardrobe base. A good suit, a good jacket, a good pair of jeans, and good shirts are always good to have on hand. Quantity is not as important as quality. With that being said, it is much more efficient to have three good pieces rather than ten bad ones.
- Add Jewelry
Jewelry is one of those things that will make your style pop. It is good to keep in mind that items such as a good watch, cuffs, bracelets, rings, or even a necklace can make a significant difference. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
- Add a Nice Pair of Shoes
A good pair of modern looking shoes, laces or footwear accessory, can be the thing differentiating you from all the men out there. Do not forget about your feet just because they are at the bottom.
- Layer Pieces
To make any classic outfit stylish, one of the simplest things to do is to layer pieces. Shirts, jackets, vests… take your pick and layer them nicely. It is a look that does not only look chic but also timeless. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ASK SUIT.
