I just love a man in a suit, but I also love a man in color suited-outfit. A man who knows how to color coordinate their outfits, can definitely catch the attention of any crowds. It takes a real (unique) man to step out of his comfort zone and step into a different style of variety colors, (besides the norm solid and plain colors such as black, brown, navy blue and well you get the point). Kim Johnson Gross (co-founder of Chic Simple Ltd) quoted, “Men shouldn’t be afraid of color but should embrace it. They should experiment even if it’s just with shirt colors.” I couldn’t have agree more with that statement. Adding color to your look brings men fashion to a whole next level, and it also expresses the level of confidence that you have. I think men who chooses to be different by adding a little color to their styles are more confident than men who just stick to the basic color guide. Dare to be DIFFERENT, adding color to your style reads a bolder new look.
I understand that some of you may feel excluded from the fashion trend; it can be too much as far as time-consuming, trying on different types of color shirt and then taking more time to find matching pants to go with it. There are some men who preferred wearing a more laid-back look, dressed in comfortable jeans and a for example (which is completely fine with me, there’s nothing wrong with that.) Oh and then you have the other types of men who are more conservative, dressing in business suit at the job and keeping a modern-look out of the job. Which is also fine but it doesn’t hurt to switch up your styles every now and then. Some of you men may not know this but style is different from fashion. Unlike fashion, style can be taught but it can’t be bought. Once you learned the criteria of styles, and coordinating the right colors to your style then congratulations, you have mastered the art of dressing.
A perfect example of a man who stands out in the fashion world is also known to be one of the most
talented man behind the music industry, he is none other than Pharrell Williams, who in my opinion is a one-of-a-kind style icon. His fashion style reads EPIC. That is the kind of man who takes risk when it comes to dressing up. He creates his own style and brings a different atmosphere through Hip-hop and also a daring-look in Hip-hop as well. I found an interesting article about Pharrell and his fashion look, which can be found at: (http://www.askmen.com). I think his answer during the interview with AM (Ask Men), was a perfect answer for men who felt lost of trying to build a wardrobe. Check it out below:
AM: Any advice for clueless guys who wake up and finally want to build a wardrobe?
PW: Well, wardrobe is an extension on personality, and if you’re not a person who jumps out the window, then you’re not going to do that fashion-wise. When you do, it’s going to look and feel like a stretch. Also, remember my first tenant in getting dressed is how you feel in the morning. So if you’re not being true blue to that, it usually shows. Those are the people you see and say to yourself “Why are you wearing that?! It’s not you.” You know, you’ve heard people say that before. You sort of have to become what you’re wearing. It’s like your exoshell — your exo-skeleton, if you will. (Credit: http://www.askmen.com/fashion/interview/pharrell-williams-interview.html).
Men fashion goes a long way from how you feel to how others may feel about you, and the way you dress. There will be criticisms along the way and there will also be compliments. It’s a win or lose situation. The point of the matter is:Bold is greater and color is the easiest to try on. For those of you men who are still not comfortable of dressing in color- don’t feel like colors are listed as too feminine. Exposing colors does not define feminine in any kind of way. It all depends on how you carry yourself. Women love to see guys embracing the spirit of season by rocking the fashion trends. We don’t want to see guys dressed in all black every fall, summer, spring and winter long. Sticking to one color is so boring and over-rated. But if you want to know my opinion: I think you’ll look nice in color…
Until Next time…
