Big Men Fashion Tips-For The man on The Go

We all want to look and feel our best. Our clothes play a big role in how we present ourselves and that first impression people have of us. In this post, I will share 5 Big Men Fashion Tips that I personally know will help.                                                                                                                                                                     vintage-1060202_640(1)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Get your measurement.  This is important, it can be very frustrating shopping for an outfit and you have no idea what size to even begin trying on, believe me, some people do not know their size, ending up paying good money and investing time in something they will return or wear one time because of an uncomfortable fit.                                                                                                                                                                  There are many sources in which you can get measurements, some stores, fashion designers and the good old internet which offer many, many guides for getting measured.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Know what color looks good on you. With our different skin shades, their are certain colors that complement our particular skin shade, when checking out a piece of clothing, lay it on your hand,or put it near your face, you will notice certain colors look really great on you while others does nothing to enhance your looks. You can even look at pictures of yourself and note the difference colors make.             red-1136968__180                                                                                                                        Be conscious of your body type. Are you short and round, tall and thin, tall and thick, etc? You want to pick clothes that enhances your build, however it is. For instant, short men should avoid too many variations of colors and patterns in an outfit, it tends to chop you up and make you look even shorter. Tall thin men should avoid clothes that look too big on them as it creates a sloppy look.Try your clothes on, using different style shoes, different colors, maybe a hat, use a full length mirror and be honest with yourself, If it doesn’t look good on you now it will not look good later on, move forward, try another .                                                                                                                                                        Where, how often will you be wearing this outfit? Most of us are very conscious of the money we spend because we have so little of it. We bargain hunt and try to make the most of our purchases so of course when we shop for clothes we keep in mind, is this for a special occasion, will this be suitable for other events, low or high cost care? We want something that can be used for different occasions and will be stylist for a long time and possibly be matched up with another article of clothing that will create a different look. Look for something suitable for your life style and will last you for a reasonable amount of time with proper care.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Can I afford this? Some of you are fortunate enough to go into any store and buy what you want, many others are not able to do this, that’s a fact of life. Almost all of us are able to dress nicely, we just have to know where to look. Example, I’ve seen some of the same outfits in Ross’s as I’ve seen in Macy’s. The same outfits bought in high end stores end up in consignments shops, Goodwill, etc. The owners gain weight, lose weight or for many other reasons no longer need that particular garment and gives it to charity, so yes, indeed, you can afford to dress nicely.                                                                                                The trick is shop places that you can afford, shop for garments that will be most beneficial to your lifestyle, look in the mirror for yourself(people will tell you anything if they think that’s what you want to hear) and experiment with different styles and colors.                                                                                                                                                   Bonus Tip    Do not squeeze a size 20 into a size 18. Happy shopping!
