You and your man are heading out and you have gone to a lot of effort but your man has thrown on his favourite ‘good’ outfit that is really not good, or even tidy.
It can be frustrating so I am going to explain why this happens, and how to change things up a bit, from a man’s perspective, plus give you These 4 outfit ideas that are crafted from matching pieces that allows him to easily create many outfit combinations.
1. Put outfits together with 2 or 3 colours
This is the first thing I teach to guys when styling them. Most of them literally have no idea but are grateful for the information. They simply don’t know.
So although we all know you can wear outfits with 1 to 4 colors, for the sake of simplicity let’s start them with the easiest and in my opinion the most stylish; 2 or 3 colour outfits.
Now most guys’ outfits will only have 3 to 5 pieces of clothing depending on the weather and the occasion; shoes, pants, belt, top and jacket. So adhering to this styling idea he will have to learn to colour match some of his items together to keep the total colours to 2 or 3. It’s not rocket science!
The image above has an example of a 2 colour outfit with 5 pieces of clothing and a 3 colour outfit with 3 pieces of clothing.
2. Match shoes to top
Ok so now he knows 2 or 3 colours make up am outfi, hen ow needs to know which colours work well together.
Matching his shoes to his top is a very simple way of creating an outfit and it’s super stylish.
Want to add a jacket with this? Add a black one to stay 2 colours or add another colour to make it 3 colours. Easy peasey
4. Match belt to pants or shoes
These two methods work when his top/shirt is tucked in showing off his belt.
For a more casual vibe he can match his belt to his pants. As an example I use this when wearing white trainers as I don’t like white belts. I blend the belt in with my jeans or chinos.
For a more polished and dressier look especially when wearing leather or suede shoes I match my shoes to my belt. Oh and make sure the browns are of similar colour otherwise it looks a little weird.
Finally , if he’s interested in learning and you wanted to spend the time you could flat lay a few outfits out on the floor and see how many outfits you both can come up with. You can create loads of outfits in minutes, just start swapping stuff out and start clicking
Photograph the flat lays on his phone and then put them in an album called “outfits” so he can access them quickly.
I guarantee if you show him these outfit ideas he’ll be buzzing and who knows might come up with some great outfits. Good luck and we would love to see your photos!
