Men’s fashion tips - Freshen up your style in 2018
The fact of the matter is that having a great style isn’t always that easy. Most guys want to dress well but they don’t quite know how to go about it. Luckily, we have some awesome advice that can help you transform your wardrobe in 2018!
So, it may be difficult for you to ditch the hoodies and graphic tees to opt for something a little more mature, but trust me, it’s totally worth it. If you had no idea, here’s how you can start looking great.
You’re going to have to chuck a lot
It may seem easier to buy a few classy items to add to your wardrobe and mix and match them with your old clothing - I suggest you get rid of most of your old clothes, especially if the clothes you have are old and tacky.
Build a minimalist wardrobe
You don’t need to have an overflowing wardrobe. Rather have fewer quality items than a wardrobe full of junk. As long as you buy practical, good-looking clothes, you won’t need a lot to mix and match items and you’ll look great when you leave the house.
Start with the basics
Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to get your entire wardrobe together all at once. Focus on getting the basics, then build up your wardrobe from there. Just remember, you will be wearing your basic essentials the most. Your essential clothes include a pair of dark denims, a white V-neck, a button-up shirt, a pair of chinos, a blazer, a pair of trainers and a pair of lace-up shoes.
Your essential clothing items should be versatile so that you can mix and match them with other clothes and accessories. These items are very easy to look good in and require little “style experience”. Once the foundation of your wardrobe has been built, you can start adding your statement clothing items.

Don’t be too “extra”
Being well-dressed doesn’t necessarily mean extravagant. Taking a clean, simple and smart approach to dressing will make you look a lot better than trying to be overly fashionable. A simple style looks great on all guys. You can’t go wrong with keeping your clothes neat and your accessories classy.
Buy well-fitting clothes
You can have all the right clothes and accessories but if your clothes don’t fit well, your outfits will end up looking trashy. This means that you will actually have to try on clothes before buying them to make sure that you buy clothes that are the right shape, style and size for your body.
Learn how to work with layers
You can create a lot of interesting styles by mixing and matching your different clothes. This can be done by layering up your outfit. When it comes to layering, remember these few rules:
- Your underlayer should be your thinnest layer and your outer layer should be your thickest layer.
- Each layer should be something that you can wear without the other layer - basically, don’t wear an old worn out shirt underneath your other layers.
- All your layers should fit you perfectly.
- Your inner layer hems should not show underneath your other layers’ hems.
Always leave the house looking smart
Some men seem to look like they spend a minute and a half getting ready in the morning. You don’t have to spend hours grooming yourself every day but at least leave the house looking well put together.
Develop your own unique style
You don’t always have to follow all the fashion trends. Develop a style that is classy yet unique to you. That’s not to say adding some of the latest trending clothing items to your wardrobe is wrong!
