I’ve said this before and I will forever say it again: guys are so lucky.
I mean, not every girl can get away with wearing black skinny jeans and a grey t-shirt and still look great. Guys however, most definitely can.
So you have the guys who just wear the simplest things and we’re all like “wow”. Then some guys decide to shock you and step up the game a bit with a shirt, or a shirt with a sweater over the top, or a printed tee with a leather jacket; let’s not even talk about those lucky bastards who wear jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers and radiate cool. How do they do it?!
The answer is simple; self confidence. You could literally wear a tailored sack and as long as you feel great in it, the people around you sense it and start believing in your tailored sack too. How do you think models make everything that comes down a runway look good? It’s not because every piece in every collection is incredible, it’s because the designer’s enthusiasm encourages the model to feel their best regardless of what they’re wearing for that instant that the world sees them. The same principle applies with guys. The best dressed men I know don’t wear couture suits, but wear the simplest things and unintentionally use their confidence to make the whole outfit work.
Alternatively, guys can also accessorise a super simple outfit with beanies, scarves, and statement sneakers or classically elegant brogues or loafers. The opportunities are endless, affordable and achievable for anyone. Just look at these photos and try to tell me that any one of these outfits is hard to replicate.
Be original and think about what’s going to be the easiest style for you. All you have to do is stock up on the basics and mix it up with some cool statement pieces, trust me, it’s easy!
