7 MEN’S STYLE HACKS WOMEN LOVE THE MOST
Women love and appreciate the little things, and that includes the measures men take appearance wise. With just a few simple tips you’d be surprised how much of an impact you can make on your style. It really doesn’t take much at all, just follow these simple recommendations and you'll be sure to walk outside and showcase to the ladies that you’ve got your style game on lock.
A WELL-TAILORED SUIT
Maybe you’re in a work environment that requires you to wear a suit every day, or maybe things are more informal. Either way, there’s sure to be a formal occasion pop up where you’re going to need to wear one (funeral, wedding, or any other special occasion). Just remember that a tailored suit is a definite showstopper, so women are going to turn their heads. If your suit is ill-fitting, it’s only going to make you look amateur and unkempt. The last thing you want is to look as if you’re a child playing dress up in a suit twice your size. Find the right tailor who will ensure the collar, shoulders, arms, midsection, and legs are the appropriate measurements and fit your body to perfection.
ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES
Exposing a bit of forearm is a beautiful thing to a woman. It’s such a simple style move but gives off a masculine vibe without looking as if you’re trying too hard. Let’s say you’re headed to happy hour after work, this would be a great time to relax a bit and roll up those sleeves to turn your dressy look into a more evening appropriate one.
THE RIGHT WATCH
A well-crafted watch is one of the best ways to take things to the next level, so don’t skimp on this! Just keep in mind that certain watches are made for certain occasions. For example, metal band watches are most appropriate for casualwear while leather ones are most appropriate for more formalwear (you can also wear leather bands with certain more dressy-casual outfits). This will help you to look more put together and show that you really know what you’re doing in the style department.
A ZIP-UP JACKET
There’s something about a zip up jacket that gives off the ultimate combination of cool, casual and classy. I’m a big fan of bomber jackets in particular - there are so many different fabrics to choose from that’ll compliment every single man out there, regardless of your build or how tall you are. Style your jacket with crisp dark-coloured trousers and a pair of classic white sneakers and you’re bound to look great.
THE RIGHT FOOTWEAR
It happens more often than you think: wearing footwear that’s either too dressy or too casual for the situation at hand. This is a surefire way to kill an entire outfit in one punch. Remember, certain shoes are made for certain occasions. So, make sure your shoe isn’t too casual or too formal for the occasion at hand and women will surely recognise how cohesive and put together you look.
Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes from harsh sun rays but they also add a cool and discreet vibe to your look. What woman wouldn’t be attracted to that? Remember to ensure your shades compliment your face shape though, to ensure it enhances rather than detracts from your overall appearance.
As a wardrobe consultant, I make it a point to ensure my clients stay on top of their grooming. You can have all the fancy attire in the world, but if grooming falls behind, you’ll only look half as good as you could. So, make sure to keep yourself clean, trimmed, and well-groomed at all times. This includes hair (all over) teeth, skin, and nails. It sounds like a no-brainer, but life happens and sometimes a quick reminder every now and then helps. Incorporate a simple morning and evening regime to ensure you stay on top of these things because maintaining grooming is one the sexiest things you can do to hold a woman’s attention and keep it.
