Admit it, it’s difficult to dress men up. Women always say that it is more difficult to be a woman especially because of all the fashion trends one has to follow, the clothes one must fit in, wearing high heels etc but ladies, we must all remember that men have fashion problems too.
Being a guy and not trendy may make one seem like he doesn’t care while being too trendy might lead to him being branded as either a metrosexual or a homosexual. How does one draw the line to being too trendy but still be trendy or simply, nicely dressed?
The first rule is to ensure that you do not use too many colors on your outfits. You should remember that if the color stops traffic, you might as well throw it away or just use it at home.
Does this mean you can’t wear anything colorful? Well anything that is bright is fine as long as you do not pair it with another bright item. You do not really want to end up looking like a clown would you?
How about shoes? What kinds of shoes should you get? Any fashion expert would tell you that you need casual shoes and dress shoes. Let’s start with casual shoes. The first rule here is that loafers are comfortable but there are those that just look too sloppy that any guy should never buy them.
