DRESS BY ENVIE AND NOT BY CONTRAINT
The right question to ask is:
What I have Want to wear today?
I've said it many times too: without pleasure, you really won't go far in your style learning. That's why I put it at the heart of the way you put together the pieces in your wardrobe.
It's much easier and fun to create a look with items you want to wear, rather than having a rational gait behind!
Telling each other "Well, now I have a checked shirt. But given the size of the tiles, I should take a jacket with narrow lapels, and given the color, a jacket a little light ... Ah but in fact, I don't have the jacket to use..." is frankly painful!
Approaching the assembly of an outfit for pleasure, rather than rationality, doesn't look like anything like that. But I guarantee you that in the long run, it is a huge change of mind.
WHAT I ENVIE THIS MATIN?
COMFORT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN
This morning, you don't really want to... We all know that. You get up and say that today it will be comfort above all (which does not mean neglect)!
You see it's a little cool outside, so you think it's time to put your shawl-necked cardigan in thick mesh. This is a piece you love and want to wear today.
But you also want to be relaxed and comfortable, so you put a simple T-shirt underneath, worked or not, because it's a nice piece to wear.
If it's fresh, a good raw jeans in selvedge canvas that is starting to wash away is essential. But a chino/wool pants will go very well here.
There is still the question of shoes. We understand, you want to be comfortable today, so it's time to release your pair of sneakers. And as you know that it is really difficult to crash color level, no head-up, you take the ones you prefer.
AN OUTFIT THAT ALSO WORKS IN THE EVENING
Conversely, a night with friends is planned tonight? Do you want to go to work dressed elegantly?
Sure, dressing casual lying down seems easier than being stylish... whereas, sincerely, there is no difference.
All you have to do is replace the T-shirt with a nice shirt. You must have one or two beautiful models of sober color. No trouble finding one that lends itself to your cardi!
But since you know you're going to walk a lot today (several appointments are planned and your friends aren't nearby), and you want to have your feet comfortably shoeed, you keep your pair of sneakers. Simply!
Finally, just know what you want - that's the most important thing - then choose pieces that match this desire to wear them among themselves.
It sounds silly and, somewhere, it is... We will see that there are really only two conditions that need to be met for it to work. In addition, unlike women's fashion, men's fashion is full of pieces that go with everything. If you choose, choose them well, you should not ask yourself as many questions in the morning.
WEAR A STRONG PIECE
You get up thinking about your red jacket, less obvious than your blue blazer. So what? Don't take your head any more!
Already, if you have acquired a "strong piece" (in any case, more original than what you usually wear), is that it suits you. You saw yourself wearing it at the time of purchase, didn't you? In this case, now is the time.
What to assemble it with now? Easy, basic pieces that you're used to putting on and in which you feel good!
And if unfortunately, you really do not see what to wear your new jacket in yellow and gray tweed, it may be that you fell for a model that does not suit you ...
To be sure, don't hesitate to do several fittings with the parts in your possessionin front of your mirror. Maybe you'll click. It's very hard to just imagine clothes between them, try on outfits!
WITH AN EFFICIENT WARDROBE, ASSEMBLING YOUR CLOTHES BECOMES EASY
It makes sense to see this: if you only have beautiful pieces, at your size and quality, difficult to build a horrible outfit.
At worst, it will be too classic or even a little bland. But in time, you'll know how to spice it all up!
THESE PIECES THAT GO WITH EVERYTHING (THE ESSENTIAL RECAP)
A man's locker room must be largely made up of basics. There are eight of them overall. If you don't already know them, it's this way.
Here's also a little reminder of versatile parts, extremely easy to assemble in an outfit.
JEANS: RAW, GREY OR WASHED
Really, it goes with everything. I'm realizing that even a beautiful faded jeans is super versatile.
So don't deprive yourself on this room, and don't get your head wrong about it. You can definitely be very stylish OR very casual with the same jeans.
THE GREY JACKET
Same! Whether it's with:
- A hoodie,
- A T-shirt (simple or patterned),
- A shirt (simple or patterned),
- A cardigan,
- A chambray shirt,
It's zero risk! You really have to do it on purpose to mismatch a simple grey jacket. So there, too, no questions to ask.
THE BEIGE CHINO OR KHAKI
This may be the room that will give you the least trouble! A chino is done with everything.
A NICE CARDIGAN
Whether it's with a nice plaid shirt, chambray, white poplin, a T-shirt... Everything will be fine with this piece on your shoulders.
If you can (but nothing obligatory eh!), prefer the models with shawl collar: they tend to flatter the body.
TWO CONDITIONS TO FILL: QUALITY AND SIZE
To have parts that fit together easily, you absolutely must have quality parts:
- A well-balanced design, no surplus,
- And a neat confection.
It sounds silly said like that, but if you knew how hard I could to dress friends when they only had Brice or bad Celio in their wardrobe ...
Most ready-to-wear pieces general public are often a big hassle to match : the collar of the shirt is too imposing to fit into the lapels of a jacket (or too soft to hold well), the leather shoes are marked, the colors are not tops, there are inscriptions everywhere, unnecessary details ... In short, to avoid as much as possible.
Believe me, you don't have all these problems with a balanced dressing room.
It's simple: a beautiful cardigan (with an interesting material and a clean design) goes with everything. A bad cardigan (whose mesh is slender and tapered) does not go with much.
A beautiful shirt with worked fabric, with mother-of-pearl buttons, a collar that stands and a beautiful drop is easy to wear! It will be showcased in any style, from blazers to bombers.
THE PARTS ON WHAT NOT TO TRICHER
There are pieces with which it is even more blatant! This is the case for:
- Leather jackets,
- The mesh,
- And the shoes.
On these categories, it is strictly IMPOSSIBLE to cheat on quality (you have to be willing to invest for the shot).
That's why there is a lot of emphasis on buying quality clothing. The other important point is size. If the cut is good and Clothes are your size, you really minimize the risk of doing wrong.
So be careful about that. Far too many people dress too big or too small. If this is your case, you may try to build a consistent outfit, but there will always be something wrong.
DEDRAMATISONS: BIG ERREURS ARE VERY RARE
Yes, you have to know how to put it into perspective a little bit. To really match your clothes badly, you have to do it on purpose (garish colors, transparent materials, big inscriptions, denim wash Cheap).
In the worst case, you have a style that goes completely unnoticedNothing more.
Unless the result is truly catastrophic, no one will turn around thinking: "I've rarely seen a guy so badly dressed". So keep cool guys !
And then remember, Men's fashion is simple and it's not meant to take the lead (yes, again).
Keep in mind that you don't risk making a few mistakes. So dare you try. 😉
THREE TUYAUX FOR ASSEMBLER HIS CLOTHING
To conclude, here are three things you can focus on to make sure you put your clothes together and/or get out of the ordinary.
- Focus on colors. You can remember this simple rule: never more than three colors in a single outfit. But this rule can also be overcome with a little experience.
- Focus on volumes. You have to think about general balance: for example, if your top is oversized, wear well-fit jeans. If your shirt is very fitted, you can opt for a cargo ship a little Loose Etc.
- Focus on the materials. This last point is more difficult because as much you can play on it to create interesting contrasts, as much you should not think of it as a rule / obligation. Basically, it's a bonus! If you can create beautiful contrasts, it's great. If you don't, it doesn't matter.
