You’ve undoubtedly heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” Have you ever thought about the expression: “You are what you wear?” There are different factors and accessories that can cause a man to look and feel manlier. However, there is always a time and place for certain style movements to take place, and knowing the difference between these times and places, is very important.
How Do You Smell?
Picking a fragrance is important, especially for a man. Sure, you want something that smells strong and powerful to indicate your manliness; however, you don’t want a scent that will be noticed throughout the entire office building.
The vital thing to do in this case is to test out different colognes and find which best matches you and your personality. Head to a local department store and begin spraying and smelling. There are literally hundreds of scents to choose from. Try spraying a few options on your wrist or neck, see how the liquid feels on your skin, and then try to discover if the brand accommodates you or works against you.
Accessories and Clothing Pieces
Nothing shouts “Man!” like a nice, solid watch. Luckily, watches come in all shapes, sizes, and styles i.e. there are many different options to choose from. For instances, you have the privilege of selecting from gold, black, or silver and even plastic, metal, or glass. However, it seems that watches with larger faces seem to be “in” at the moment. No matter what your age is or what occasion you need the piece of jewelry for, consider going with the bigger, rounder face.
Other stylish pieces to help you look manly could include crisp dress shirts, skinny ties, suspenders, leather jackets (black or brown), and boots.
Of course, your fashions choices will undoubtedly depend on what activity you’re participating in. For instances, if you’re going to the office, then you probably won’t wear boots or a leather jacket. However, the button down shirt, skinny tie, and vest (or substitute a new pair of suspenders) will have you looking sharp as a tack for the workday ahead.
If you’re planning on running errands or going to a sporting event, then you’ll want to dress more comfortable. You can wear your favorite piece of NFL apparel and still look manly.
One of the most manly items you can wear to a professional sporting game is a backwards cap. If you decide to wear the cap backwards, then try purchasing a fitting hat, rather than an adjustable one. However, adjustable hats, custom designed hats, and beanies are great to wear, too.
The other important clothing item to wear to a game is a team jersey. Though comfortable and quite warm, a sweatshirt just isn’t as manly looking as a jersey. If you’re worried about the cold weather, then try layering up; wear a turtleneck or long-sleeved t-shirt under your jersey.
One of the most important items that all men should have is a nice, strong-looking pair of sunglasses. The nice thing about sunglasses is that one pair can be worn to all events and occasions. When picking a pair, make sure to choose thick, bold lenses that compliment your face without simultaneously covering it up. Solid tones are best when deciding which pair to purchase, such as black, gray, or navy blue.
There’s nothing wrong with a man looking fashionable. In fact, most manly men are dressing stylish now. The trick to looking hip and manly at the same time is to choose different wardrobe and accessory pieces that flatter you, as well as bring out your best features.
