“I have nothing to wear” - Men

It is a well known gender stereotype that women have wardrobes full of clothing, but always complain of nothing to wear.

Well it turns out that men also share the same issue. It seems to be a well kept secret in the “man world”, but once I was in on it, I started to realize that most of my male friends and family had indirectly complained of the same issue at some point.

One of these friends is David White! 

David would describe his personal style as modern and clean cut, but with a little bit of Ziggy Stardust hidden in the cracks.

As David works as a financial analyst, he finds it difficult to express his inner rock star through his wardrobe. He is attracted to statement pieces, but struggles with toning them down for everyday wear. 

I have assembled 3 outfits for David. The main objective was to show David how he could have fun with his wardrobe, while keeping it wearable, put together, and of course just looking damn good!

Look 1:All in the Details The male wardrobe has more limitations than women’s. There aren’t that many options, therefore, my number one suggestion would be to focus on the details. This will be a prevalent theme in all three outfits. The little details are what enhances every outfit! Tip: Seek out garments with an extra detail. As you can see, the camouflage panels give this simple outfit an added edge.

Tip: There should be base colour prevalent in both patterns. In this case, that colour is blue. I suggest starting with two similar patterns, and expanding to accommodate your comfort zone. The patterns can be balanced with a strong solid colour.

Look 3: Accessorize For a weekend relaxed look, I have paired a preppy grandfather sweater with edgy ripped jeans. Tip: Pair with a bright colored bracelet to create some interest.

Unisex tips for creating a slick wardrobe

Less is more. At the end of every season, donate clothing that you have not worn in 3 months. A de-cluttered wardrobe gives you room to appreciate the pieces you do have and clarity to know what you need to add.

Try new things. Don'tbe scared to try bold patterns or prints. Ensure they are paired with similar prints/hues.

Accessories are your friends. A brightly coloured bracelet, socks, or even funky undies can enhance your outfit. Yes no one will know you have it on, but if you feel good in it, you will have a confidence boost that will make you look good.

So now that the secret is out, you really don’t have to be shy guys. We are in this together!

Express yourselves.
