Oh, I'm getting the red blazer! I'm gonna wear that badboy everywhere.Please don't dress like any of these photos @redskinsfan92 .
What you need is good looking 'staples' (essential items in your wardrobe). These include a white T-shirt, black T-shirt, blue, whatever other colors you want. Dark wash and light wash jeans. But the key is the FIT. FIT IS KING in fashion. If you wear something that is not well fitting, it doesn't matter how fancy it is. Wearing fitting clothes will make you look more muscular, plenty of YouTube videos available on that. You gotta start with the basics, as with everything else, and that will get you surprisingly far. To that end, grab some cashmere sweaters in normal colors (black, off white, navy blue) that match everything since it's cold out.
The haircut suggested here is silly. How many guys do you see with that haircut? I'm not telling you not to be different but I'm urging you to consider why they might not have it. Because it's wack. I would suggest you keep it as long as it is on top and fade the sides. You could also go see a hair stylist, they'll suggest something that fits your face.
Just .. please don't wear the things posted above haha you will look very silly. I know the intention was good, but those looks are not modern. When I get some time maybe I'll send some recommendations. I'm pretty into fashion so if you ever have any questions, hmu.
Personally, I don't think watches are that huge of a deal. You don't need to spend hundreds for a nice one. I wear a timex weekender that I got on eBay for $30 with 4 different straps. It's a great casual watch that can also be dressed up. The important thing is to match the metals of your outfit. Don't wear a gold buckle with a silver watch. It's similar to the matching your belt and shoes thing.
You're right, the blazer is too big, but it looks like it fits you very well in the shoulders. Just wanted to point that out in case you do every seriously consider a blazer.
Yeah, it did fit my shoulders.You're right, the blazer is too big, but it looks like it fits you very well in the shoulders. Just wanted to point that out in case you do every seriously consider a blazer.
You can tell if a blazer fits the shoulders well by leaning your shoulder into a wall while standing up straight. If the blazer (shoulder seam) touches the wall before your shoulder, it's too big. If your shoulder touches the wall before the shoulder seam, it's too small.
Yeah, I grabbed some slimmer fitting jeans and a casual button up off the clearance racks today.@redskinsfan92
Before you go spending tons of money on a new wardrobe, first take into consideration the types of places you most often frequent. That red blazer won’t do you much good if you’re not regularly hitting up lounges, clubs, etc. for the late nights...and I’m sure you don’t want to wear it every single date you go on.
I would suggest starting off with a new haircut and style and begin to build your wardrobe up with more casual clothing first; things you are likely to wear every day: black or white vneck shirts, properly fitting jeans, etc. (the jeans you wear now are too long in the leg). Know exactly what measurements fit your body properly before buying any clothing at all.
Once you have the everyday base down and look good, it will help boost how you feel in general. THEN you start to buy the nicer stuff for more flare. I would highly suggest talking to a tailor before plunging into blazers and suits and the like. It’s not easy looking good to people who are the wiser when you’re wearing everything straight off the rack.
Yeah, it's hard to find good fits around here cause of sheer number of overweight people. Might have to look into tailors. This will be a while before I can due to budget.Looking better for sure man.
Everyone has their preferences on pants fit, so it's up to you to figure out what kind of silhouette you want achieve (slim, skinny, tapered, etc). Generally, I go for something relaxed in the thighs and tapered from the knee down - this is hard to find in the store for me (because of my build) so I gotta get pants tailored. But like I said, find what works for you. The pants are still a little too long, notice how they are bunching up at the ankle. You want them to have a slight break (the break is the folding/bunching that occurs above the ankle) at the most. They are a nice wash (denim pattern) though, so if you got them at a department store for cheap, it'd be worth it to go to a tailor and get them hemmed/fitted (this could be a good way for you to figure out how you like your pants to fit, the tailor can put pins in and take them out so you can see how you like different fits) or go get a shorter pant length from the same store. Anyways, it's a step in the right direction my man.
As far as the shirt: The shirt you've picked is a formal dress shirt. You can tell because of the collar (it is sharp and doesn't have buttons that keep the collar tips down), and the length of the shirt (it's very long, this means it's meant to be tucked in. If you want to wear a collared shirt untucked, you need a shorter, casual one. As far as the fit, it's too baggy, I'd recommend typing in "jose zuniga/alpha m dress shirt/collar shirt" on youtube. You'll find a ton of videos. The type of shirt you're wearing is good for a business meeting or a very nice restaurant but you won't want to wear it out to grab groceries unless you're just really gonna stunt haha.
That jacket is cold, fam. Definitely rock that. Bad boy vibes right there.
