5 Super Easy Fashion Tips For Men

By Gabriel Adams

Women are always complaining about how their husbands, boyfriends, or sons dress. Many wives claim that they have to tell their husbands what to wear or they will be embarrassed in front of people. Mothers often comment about the lack of appropriate clothing worn by their adult sons. Employers say that many of their male employees would be given more raises if their appearance at work improved.

Maybe you are a man who has been embarrassed at work when someone points out that your socks donít even match. Are you dressing in the dark or are you color blind? One suggestion is that you match your socks in a very brightly lit room.

Perhaps you have several suits that you wear to work. If you have a black suit, for instance, you wonít have much problem with coordinating colors. Black goes with almost anything. However, if wear mostly blue or brown suits, it could seem a little more complicated to you.

With any color of suit, you should wear dark socks. You would wear black or brown with a brown suit. With navy blue, you would wear navy blue or black socks. Never wear white socks with a suit.

Never wear colored t-shirts with a suit. If you wear a t-shirt underneath your white dress shirt, make sure it is a white one that wonít show.

With a navy blue suit or pants, it is appropriate to wear a white dress shirt. You can also wear a light blue dress shirt, but it probably would not look good with a one that is navy, black or brown.

When you are wearing a brown suit or pants, you can always wear a white dress shirt. However, you would not want to wear a brown shirt, or one that is navy or yellow. Pale blue or even black might be all right with this color.

Ties that are worn should have colors in them that are similar to those that are in the suit or the shirt. Loud colors or patterns are not attractive. With a black suit or pants, a silver tie would look nice depending on the color of the shirt.

Besides color coordination, there are a few other things that are important when trying to dress fashionably.

Here are 5 fashion tips including coordinating the colors of what you wear:

1. Color-coordinate clothing

2. Neatly press your suits, dress pants, dress shirts, and ties (consider taking them to your local dry cleaners if you donít have time for this task).

3. Wear suits, pants, and shirts that fit properly (many menís stores will assist you with this).

4. Have any buttons replaced, zippers repaired, holes mended (dry cleaners often offer this service).

5. Wash your under garments, jeans, socks and other casual clothing on a regular basis.

Hopefully, these 5 fashion tips will make your life a lot easier. Although it will cost you a little money at the dry cleaners, it will be worth it! Women in your life, including your mother and sisters, will be very impressed when they see the improvement. Who knows? Your next raise might be on its way!

One thing you want to be diligent about is making sure that you wash your under garments on a regular basis. It does no good to take your daily shower, put on deodorant, aftershave, and cologne if everything you wear isn't clean!
