SUIT UP

Boring business suits are about to die

Colours are slowly being embraced by men when it comes to fashion.

In Summary

•Ensure your collar disappears under the lapels of your suit jackets, otherwise it doesn’t look like an ensemble.

•Your tie and lapel should be the same width, this makes sure they look like they fit together. When one is thin and the other is fat, the end result is like clashing colours.

In the world of fashion, one must be able to embrace this fast-changing world to look chic and up to date.

It is not obvious to see businessmen in floral or brightly coloured coats as they are slowly embracing fashion.

Boring black, grey or white suits however can also look fancy if you follow these easy steps.

  1. Go for prints and patterns

Pinstripe suits are not the only choice, you should have more than just a solid colour. Having a floral coat make you stand out without looking like you are trying to shock or amaze people.

It is important not to overdo it. Ensure the coat blends with the trousers as well.

  1. Go bright

Colours are slowly being embraced by men when it comes to fashion.

Going for ash browns and greys, whites, pinks, reds and marrons can easily boost up your look.

Velvet coats can also look good when paired up with the right shoes and accessories.

  1. Cover your collar

Ensure your collar disappears under the lapels of your suit jackets, otherwise, it doesn’t look like an ensemble.

Cover the points and corners as well.

  1. Watch the length of your trousers

Ensure you get the right length of pants otherwise if the pants are too long or too short you may end up looking sloppy or not serious.

  1. Watch on the accessories

French cuffs are a nice look unless they are big. Ensure they fit perfectly otherwise you will look disorganized.

Ensure your tie lands at your belt and so is your vest and waistcoat. Your suit jacket should cover your zipper and socks should disappear into the pant leg, showing no skin.

Big cufflinks, a tie pin, a tie clip, a flashy pocket square, a loud tie, and a bold print are all great if you know what you’re doing.

  1. Add a pocket square

Some will say that the pocket square should only be added when you have mastered the basics however it is pretty easy to learn ways you can style it and always have one ready.

  1. Check the shoulders

Fewer suits are coming outfitted with shoulder pads, but if you have them, they need to end at the shoulder. Should they hand over, you will look like you have really high shoulders and that is not sexy.

  1. Match the tie to the lapel.

Your tie and lapel should be the same width, this makes sure they look like they fit together. When one is thin and the other is fat, the end result is like clashing colours.

  1. Add vests

Vests, just like in the ’90s are slowly gaining popularity. They are good accessories for those who want something a little different. While offering greater formality, vests make the look put more together and may increase the warmth on cold days.

  1. Know your shoe colour

If you want a broader contrast or a closer match between shoe colours and shoes.

Go for a variety of options like official or leather Chelsea boots to elevate your look.
