If you just want to make a better first impression on people you meet in everyday life, what you’re really looking for is some casual style tips for guys who want to look sharp outside of a suit and tie.
1. Aim to Dress Like a Grown-Up
Many men approach their casual style from the wrong angle; they aim to look youthful.
But if you want to look well-dressed, you should always aim to look mature.
Because maturity is an attractive quality in men. Maturity, after all, is what separates the men from the boys.
Maturity shows masculinity and commands respect, and it’s a quality you want people to see in you.
You want to dress like a grown up. Funny or cartoony tees are a definite no-go. Also, avoid anything with slogans.
2. Try solid, one-color t-shirts, striped tees or henleys
You will look cool and masculine. You might also consider wearing polo shirts or casual shirts. Just because you’re dressing casual doesn’t mean you can’t wear a collar. And a simple white shirt looks great with a pair of dark blue jeans, which I’ll cover in the next section of this list.
3. Rock Jeans That Actually Make You Look Good
The go-to casual legwear for any guy is a pair of jeans.
Keep your jeans simple. Go for a clean, dark-blue pair that fits like the ones suggested below. Trust me; you’ll look awesome.
You might have to try a few to find which fit works best for you. If you’re an athletic guy with big thighs, the athletic fit might just be a dream come true for you. For guys with a more average build, any of the others work well (Personally, I’m partial to slim fit jeans.) If you’re packing some weight, straight fit is probably your best option.
4. Change it Up Down Below
Jeans are great, but they all look kinda the same, and they’re not your ONLY option for legwear.
Just look at these examples:
Add some pants in different colors to your wardrobe and change things up
All these outfits could be pulled off with jeans, but each outfit looks completely different when worn with chinos, which gives you a lot more variety.
Adding just one pair to your wardrobe doubles the amount of outfits you can create. Add one more, and you triple that number.
I suggest one basic pair in camel or grey. And get one colored pair to change things up. (Wearing color below the waist is something few men do, so it stands out.)
And you don’t have to go for fire-engine red or lime green. You can go for subdued colors like burgundy or army-green. See some examples below:
5. Class Up Your Footwear
Wear a pair of brown leather shoes instead of your everyday sneakers, and BOOM… You look sharper.
You have many options for footwear so expand your horizon beyond sneakers.
But if you’re used to wearing sneakers all the time and want to ease your way into something else, let me introduce you to the desert boot:
Desert boots look much nicer than sneakers, but aren’t as dressy as some other leather shoes. They’re right in-between, which makes them perfect for casual wear.
Plus, they’re super comfortable.
Get yourself a pair and you won’t regret it.
6. Decorate Your Wrists
You can wear a watch, a leather bracelet, or both. Doesn’t matter what you wear, but wear something on there. It just gives your outfit a bit more personality.
7. Layer Your Clothes for More Interesting Outfits
Want to know an easy way to make a dull outfit more interesting?
Add a layer.
Many guys feel a bit intimidated by layering because they don’t really know how to match clothes all that well. But you don’t have to know all that much about it. It can be done with very simple clothes too.
Imagine a guy wearing a plain grey sweater and jeans. Nothing wrong with that. It’s a fine casual outfit.
But still, it’s not that interesting.
Now imagine him wearing a simple white shirt underneath his sweater. Boom. Instantly more interesting.
It’s a simple fix, and hardly earth-shattering, but it just gives that bit more detail to the outfit that makes it more visually appealing.
And you don’t have to stop at one additional layer. You can wear two, three, even four layers at a time. So play around!
Check these guys out for some examples:
8. Wear a Jacket That Elevates Your Casual Look
Okay, so you don’t have to suit up to dress well, but that doesn’t mean you can’t smarten your casual look up a bit with a well-fitting blazer.
This favorite of business-casual men can easily be worn in casual outfits too. It’s called smart casual — which essentially means stepping your casual outfit up a notch.
A man in a blazer just looks good because blazers accentuate the male frame like no other garment.
It will give you an easy way to smarten even your simplest outfits up a bit. Plain white tee with jeans? Add a blazer, and suddenly you look pretty damn sharp.
I’d suggest one in navy or grey to maximize versatility.
