7 Style Tips For Men Who Want To Dress Better!

Hey fellas! Here are some easy and helpful tips on improving your style! Check it out!

1. Purge Your Closet

Start out by trying on the clothes and shoes that you already have. Get rid of any clothes/shoes/other items that don’t fit you properly. A good idea would also be to get rid of any items you have that you haven’t worn in a long time because if you haven’t worn them by now, you’ll probably never wear them lol. This will give you an idea of the items that you have and items that you may need to purchase.

2. Solid, Neutral Colors

When you have solid, neutral colors in your wardrobe, it’s easier to form outfits. Neutral colors are black, white, navy, olive, gray, khaki, and brown.Wearing neutral colors can help you look more polished and sophisticated without even trying! Try adding tops, bottoms/jeans, and shoes to your wardrobe that consists of these colors. Once you get the hang of putting your outfits together, you can begin to tastefully add more color!

3. Cardigans, Button Downs, Blazers

Adding one of these three items can instantly dress up your outfit! Don’t forget about those neutral colors!

4. Accessorize

Accessories can spruce up your outfit if done correctly. Accessories that work well are hats, fashion reading glasses, necklaces, bracelets, watches, and rings. Definitely don’t wear all these accessories at once lol, but wearing a few of these will totally complete your outfit!

5. Your Shoe Game!

The 5 types of shoes you should own are an athletic/running sneaker, a casual sneaker, dress shoes, boat shoes, and the Chelsea boot.

With these shoe options, you can easily dress up or dress down an outfit, depending on the occasion. If you don’t already own all 5 shoe options, just work with the shoes you have in your closet! Experiment by trying on different shoe options with the same outfit to see how much your shoes make a difference in how your outfit looks!

6. Look For Inspiration

Look to places like Instagram or Pinterest for style inspiration. See if there are any styles that you would like to duplicate but also make it your own by adding a cool accessory or by changing up your shoe choice!

7. Make It Your Own!

Have fun with your outfits by experimenting with colors and accessories. Incorporate items that have fun patterns! Try mixing and matching accessories, shoes, colors, to put together different outfits to see how it looks and even take a picture.

That way when it’s time to go somewhere, you already have a few outfits in mind and don’t have to spend hours trying to put an outfit together. Remember, it’s just clothes so try different things and have fun finding the style that works best for you!

Stay tuned for my next post I’ll be releasing on Friday about 5 Affordable Store Selections For Men to help you find the best clothes for your budget!

Here is my husband’s outfit from New Years Eve:

Top: hunter green long sleeve shirt; black long sleeve open draped cardigan

Bottom: straight leg dark blue jeans

Shoes: black and white sneakers

Accessories: black flat cap hat, necklace

This is a very simple, semi casual style.

This style can be dressed up even more with a collared button up or and dress shoes or boat shoes.

This style can also be dressed down with a beanie or baseball hat.

Each item is super affordable and the whole outfit (sneakers under $200) is under $200!

My Obsession! 

I’ve mentioned in my “About Me” section that I’m sort of obsessed with men’s fashion. 

I love the different patterns, materials, textures, and color combinations that can go together in menswear! 

My dad in his tailor made 3 piece suit

I think my obsession stems from my dad! He’s always had a great style both casual and dressy! When we lived in Bahrain (Middle East), he had a tailor made suit business and had a tailor making his suits and suits for others as well! It was pretty cool! 

Jidenna

I’m a big fan of musician Jidenna’s suits! He’s a classic man! 

Conor Mcgregor

Conor Mcgregor has recently been added to my radar because I’ve noticed that his suits are on point too! And I hope he whoops butt in that boxing match next month too!

“Long Live The Chief!”

If you haven’t heard of him, I need to fill you in!

His name is Jidenna! 


He’s a Nigerian-American musician on Janelle Monae’s Wondaland label. He’s known for his hit song “Classic Man” and for his natty attire inspired by the Harlem Renaissance with hints of African design! 

I absolutely love his style! I’ve always been a fan of men’s fashion and in my opinion, he is the best dressed celebrity out there! 

He’s not ashamed to wear vibrant colors and tribal patterns! It meshes so well with his personality and his performances on stage (you can check out his performances by clicking the Jidenna Playlist below!)


I’m super excited because my husband and I are going to his concert on July 25! Woohoo I can’t wait!!!!!!

His music is the best out there right now because he talks about real things going in life but does it in a modernized way where the songs are super catchy and they end up stuck in your head all day! 

If you like to listen to great music that stands for something, then I highly recommend to check out his songs! Jidenna Playlist!
