Time to Man Up your Style
Man Up your style and spring clean your wardrobe with one foul swoop with this Visual Guide of How To Man Up your style and graduate from boyhood to manhood. You’ve dreaded this moment, but it’s time to rid yourself of your novelty accessories and your boyish fashion pieces. No more weed paraphernalia, no more tropical ties, and no more college sweatshirts. It’s time to invest in professional pieces that are tailored and fit for the office rather than the dorm room. Donate your old school back packs and over worn tennis shoes to the thrift store and make room for laptop cases and leather brogues. You’re in the big leagues now, so dress for it. Here are a few tips.
Choose solid color t-shirts that are fitted in masculine and versatile colors. Avoid overly patterned t-shirts with tons of text. (The one exception is vintage concert tees.)
Opt for professional and clean tie designs like this tonal blue striped tie. Tie designs you should avoid include tropical prints, tie-dyes and cartoon charters.
Throw out anything you have with flames on it. That means shirts, ties, sweatpants. Invest in polo shirts and button downs (sans flames).
Don’t wear sweat shirts to the office no matter what. No. Matter. What. Instead opt for a wool or cotton sweater and a blazer if you work in a semi-casual office.
Update your sneaker collection. All your old and beaten sneakers should either be donated or cleaned up. Grunge is no longer a go to look.
