As the saying goes, the clothes make the man. An impeccable sense of style can help people express their personality and unique interests. Creating a fashionable outfit out of quality clothing from a reputable boutique shop (such as ours!) can instantly make someone see you as someone who know’s their stuff.
Fashion may seem difficult, but dressing well doesn’t have to be complicated. With a few crucial bits of menswear advice (and a few key pieces in your home's wardrobe), you can easily put together distinctive outfits that will make you look and feel at your very best.
A Few Essential Tips For Modern Menswear Fashion
Before you look for specific clothing, you should learn a few key tips for dressing well as a modern man. Whether you’re heading to an important event or a casual gathering with your best mates, keep these in mind:
Invest In Quality Pieces. When it comes to clothing, it’s always better to invest in some high-quality clothing that will last rather than buying heaps of cheap fast-fashion clothing that'll be in tatters in a month.
Although higher-quality clothing will cost more than cheap, low-quality clothing, it’s an investment that will certainly pay off. Look for independent retail stores, like out Christchurch shops, that specialise in men’s clothing that’s designed to last.
Choose Classic Styles. Fashion fads come and go. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a fun new trend, especially if it speaks to your sense of style, but classic clothing choices are here to stay. Certain pieces will always be timeless, so they’re a safe bet when finding mainstay pieces for your wardrobe.
For example, an easy and classic way to create a complete look is to pair your favourite shoes with a nice tee and some sturdy denim jeans. This outfit will never go out of style, and you can easily elevate it with some fresh accessories and solid outerwear.
Pay Attention To Fit. Clothes that fit well will make you look and feel your best. Even if you’re wearing the most expensive clothing you have, it’ll look (and feel!) awkward if it’s not fitted correctly. Take the time to find clothes that are in your size and suit your body type. This will help you feel confident in your clothes.
If you’re heading to your favourite Christchurch shop for some new men’s clothing, make sure you take care to find attractive new clothes in the right size. Then, you can dress top-to-toe like a fashionable, respectable man.
Accessorise With Care. The right accessories can really elevate any look. But don’t overdo it. Too many accessories can look a little strange, and they might ruin an otherwise perfect outfit.
A few well-chosen accessories are really all you need. This could include a handsome watch, a nice belt, a warm scarf or a fashionable hat.
Socks are a great choice because they’re both Practical and can add some fun to your outfit. Additionally, they come in heaps of different variations. From plain block colours to stripes or unique patterns and weaved textures, you can surely find many pairs that are suitable for any of your looks.
Some Menswear Staples That All Fashionable Modern Men Should Have
Now, let’s get into some classic mainstay clothes that all men should consider for their wardrobes. These are the things to keep an eye out for when shopping for men’s clothing at your favourite independent Christchurch shop (that’s us!):
A Pair Of Jeans. Let’s kick things off with an undeniable classic - jeans! They’re comfortable, they’re durable and they’re absolutely timeless.
Jeans are a very versatile and stylish option for men. They can be effortlessly dressed up or down, depending on the occasion and dress code. When choosing jeans, make sure they fit well and are made from high quality denim. Straight-leg jeans are a easy choice for any kind of man.
Button-Down Shirts. A button-down shirt is another classic and essential piece. They can be elevated for a formal setting or made more casual, and they’re a bit more sophisticated than a T-shirt. Just like tees, they come in a wide variety of colours and patterns.
That being said, if you’re searching for something casual and comfortable, you can look through our selection of men’s tees. Our Men’s tees range from bold graphic tees to ultra soft organic tees to made in France stripe tees.
Leather Shoes or boots. A pair of sturdy leather shoes is a must-have. They’re ideal for dressier occasions, but they also perfect for every-day wear and tear.
Black and brown are classic, popular choices for leather shoes because they will go with every outfit in your wardrobe. Always make sure your leather shoes are made from high-quality, full grain leather, preferably vegetable tanned.
Furthermore, you’ll want to take good care of your excellent leather shoes to ensure they stay beautiful and durable. A beeswax based conditioner is our recommendation.
