What is The Classic Fashion Style? 9 Classic Men’s Style Rules You Should Know
There are times when you should really listen to your older people. Some rules about men’s style are no longer important, but others are set in stone. They were given to you by older people for a reason, so you should try your best to follow them all.
Teeanime put together a list of the 9 rules we thought were the most important so that you wouldn’t forget anything. Men from your grandfather’s time who dressed well would be proud of you.
Match your shoes and belt when dressing formally
The idea that your belt should match your shoes is a bit old, and it’s true that its importance is sometimes blown out of proportion.
But when you’re going to a formal event, it’s important that the leathers of your belt and shoes match. Brown goes with brown, and black goes with black. There’s no way around it. If you don’t, you’ll just look odd.
Don’t mix patterns
Even though patterns are great, it is possible to have too many of them. “Power clashing” is a style in which a person wears more than one pattern on purpose to look loud. This style has no place in modern clothing.
It’s a way to stand out, and it works in casual settings. But when it’s time to get dressed up, you should follow the rules and choose a perfect suit with no patterns that clash. It will help you in so many more ways.
Dress to the specifications required
If an invitation specifies black tie, you must wear it. If it says formal, you must wear a suit.
There is no getting away with not following the dress code. If you try to get around that with “creative clothing,” you’ll look and feel like a fool.
At the occasion, you’ll be at a social disadvantage, and everyone will notice. Dress appropriately for the occasion.
Don’t wear shorts with a blazer or jacket
When it comes to clothing, proportion is crucial. Your upper and lower half must be in harmony. That means both should be covered by a same amount of clothing.
You wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) put on heavy cargo pants with a T-shirt. Similarly, wearing a large jacket on top without covering your legs is inappropriate.
Match your color palette to the season
When the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming, white slacks and blue shoes are ideal.
They make less sense when the world is dark and dismal and the sun doesn’t rise until nearly 9 a.m. You’ll stand out and feel much more so.
Muted colors like navy, olive, and gray can help to tone down your wardrobe and put it within the range of possibility.
Don’t wear a vest on its own
Let’s be clear: vests are only appropriate for three-piece suits.
Wearing a vest without a jacket makes you look like a cater waiter, and not in a good way. It gives the impression that your ensemble is lacking something, specifically a jacket to cover the unattractive shiny back area of the vest that isn’t meant to be seen.
For the same reason, this guideline is analogous to the one that dictates you should not wear a tie without a jacket.
