Men’s Fashion: 5 Pro Tips When Shopping for Perfect Fitting Formal Wear
1. Know your measurements!
Take it from two women who have styled and personal shopped for many men, nothing is more important than fit. A man in a perfectly fitted suit is literally lethal. Check out Mark and Spencer’s suit measuring guide.
2. Know what works for your body type!
If looking to lengthen the legs, pick a pant and shoe that match. This is a trick women have been doing for decades. Black pants and black heels = legs for days. Here’s Art of Manliness’ guide for other shapes and sizes.
3. The key is in the details!
Nothing is cuter than men’s accessories. I’m talking hats, suspenders, pocket squares, cufflinks, patterned socks, and so on. When a lady sees the effort, that man instantly has the edge. Check out this awesome roster of men’s accessories and gifts..
4. Shop Around – don’t stop at one shop!
Get creative. Don’t just go to the basic department store. Check out local boutiques, or search for clothing shops online..
5. Always check the return policy!
You’d think this would be an obvious one, but just a friendly reminder, know what you’re getting yourself into! No pun intended.
