8 Rules of Men’s Fashion You Should Always Follow to Look Stylish

Gain confidence in your style with fashion ideas for styling every look in your closet. Let’s find out with Teeanime.

1. Work your capsule wardrobe

Make sure you have dependable wardrobe essentials such as an iconic little black dress, a beautiful pair of jeans, a classic blazer, simple T-shirts and button-downs in neutral colors, and an easy leather jacket (or denim jacket). The trick to looking put together is to invest in a capsule collection of mix-and-match basics (and learn how to dress them).

2. Make sure your clothes fit perfectly

Hiring a professional tailor is one way to make any piece of clothing seem beautiful. Tailored clothing not only looks better, but it also feels better. Dresses that bunch up awkwardly and pants that drag on the ground will not make you feel elegant. If your capsule wardrobe fits you well, you can begin to experiment with over- and under-sized things in a tasteful, not sloppy, way.

3. Learn how to balance proportions

Balancing proportions is the process of styling your garments to achieve overall visual harmony. This is accomplished by wearing clothing that is tailored to your body type. When you want to experiment with big or unconventional forms, make it a fashion moment by keeping the rest of your outfit fitting. Pair a tight crop top with wide-leg jeans, for example, or a puff-shoulder shirt with straight-leg slacks.

4. Find your personal style

It can take years to develop a signature style, but you can start by making a moodboard. Remember that personal style is an experiment; you never know what stunning looks await you in the dressing room until you step into it. Menswear and womenswear categories should not define how you shop. Take the time to experiment with colors and shapes to see what looks best on your own body.

5. Become a better shopper

Learning how to buy for exactly what you want will help you avoid stockpiling goods in your closet that you will never use. When you have a wardrobe full of items you adore, styling an outfit becomes second nature.

6. Add a belt

Adding a belt to any outfit is one of the simplest ways to make it look more put-together. It’s also a terrific method for restoring balance to an otherwise unbalanced look, such as a long cashmere sweater and billowy midi skirt.

7. Play with color

If you’re afraid to add color to your outfit, start with just one colorful piece and keep the rest of your outfit neutral. You’ll learn which color combinations work best for your style as you become more acquainted with colors. Consider using a color wheel to get ideas.

8. Mix patterns and textures

The days of matching your handbag and shoes are long gone. Contrasting materials and designs create a striking fashion statement. Begin with neutral patterns like stripes and low-key textures like leather and knits, then add sequins and paisleys in little doses (like a scarf, tie, or clutch) until you figure out what works for you.
