Men's fashion advice?

I have been through a years worth of weight loss (60 lbs and still going strong!) I have come to realize that I have no fashion sense. Everything I have is very 'blah' and uninteresting.

What are some important fashion principles for guys, what are the ''must have'' articles for guys, and what do women look for in a guys appearance (style, colors, etc.)



Most Helpful Guy

  • Don't wear white socks outside of the gym

    Match your belt to your shoes

    Wear a belt (leather/reversible) with pants, also the belt shouldn't be holding up your pants but instead just make them look better so buy pants that fit. (Slim or Straight/slim fit usually look the best, never boot cut)

    Your ankles shouldn't be visible under your pants when you sit down (longer socks)

    Own at least one of these:

    White button down shirt

    Dark wash jeans

    Navy blazer

    Charcoal/Navy suit

    A pair of quality dress shoes

    Quality chinos

    V neck sweater

    Wear a watch

What Girls Said 1

  • Depending on your style but I think any guy pulls off a button dress shirt or button plaid with jeans try boot cut


What Guys Said 2

  • Dress appropriately for environment and your age.

    Wear clothes that fit.

    Give some consideration to what looks good on you. That means colors, also body shape etc.

    Beyond that you get more into specifics.

  • I just recently went through an entire wardrobe / style update, so I know exactly how overwhelming it all is. I ran across Aaron Marino of Alpha M on YouTube, and watched all 100 of his free videos. Aaron is the man, and he definitely helped me move forward with confidence to update my entire wardrobe.

    Some of the big takeaways I've learned:

    Fit is everything, its important to learn how to pick the right fitting clothes, too tight or too baggy kills the look. Make a promise to dress well every time you leave the house. I used to only get dressed on the weekends or for special events. I traded all my college / sports T shirts, for stylish casual V-necks. A nice dark wash fitted pair of jeans was the best investment I made so far. That's all I can think for now, but check out Aaron Marino, He's the Man!
