Ever feel like your wardrobe is only “good enough”? Sure, you feel appropriately-dressed, but you never seem to get compliments on what you wear. If that sounds familiar, it might be time to spice up the wardrobe with some fun ways to make your next outfit “pop.” Here are a few tips on how to create a fresh look for men.
Add A Collar
A great place to start is to browse our line of vintage inspired woven shirts:You don’t have to make a giant splash to get that fresh look for men. Sometimes, just a little bit of color in your outfit is enough—particularly if you layer with sharp, contrasting colors. The classic example is a black coat over a white dress shirt—a tuxedo. But it’s possible to use these same principles in more casual wear, too.
- The Acid Washed Oxford Shirt In Red uses contrasting colors to serve as its own feature piece. But as a collar under a solid patterned shirt, you’ll find it offers that fresh pop you’re looking for. You might even keep it untucked for a little splash of color by the waist, though it works just as well tucked in.
- If you want something a little more conservative, try the Oxford Washed Gingham Shirt In Navy. This shirt features two versatile colors—sharp white and navy blue—so it’s great for a feature piece as well. But it can draw a contrast with any dark-colored shirt you wear over it, even a blazer or winter coat.
- To go bold, try bold colors and patterns, like this Yarn Dyed Southern Plaid shirt. Mixing a wide range of bright, vivid colors, this shirt is a great way to get noticed. And it’s just as easy to subdue for more formal occasions that warrant a sweater, blazer, or similar outer layer.
When in doubt, add a collar to your outfit. You’ll be surprised at how it affects the appearance of your entire style.
Try Some New Pants
Stretch Twill pants are your option here. You can go the conservative route with dark denim colors—and they’ll look even sleeker than your jeans do when you select them. But you can also experiment with pastels, olives, or even more casual khaki colors.Jeans, jeans, jeans. They’re great and all, but wouldn’t you rather have something a little more fun once in a while? Something that isn’t necessarily the same dark denim navy? Something that adds “pop” to your outfit?
Stretch Out With Stretch Corduroy
Finally, we have another option for the bottom of your outfit: Stretch Corduroy. Available in a wide range of colors, these pants differ from Stretch Twill by offering a wholly unique texture to your wardrobe, which in turn helps your outfits pop in a new way.
