Are you a man who is sick of being asked questions like "Would it kill you to dress a little nicer?" While personal style may not be that important to you, taking a few minutes to make sure that you look well put-together can significantly change how others perceive you. Whether your goal is to look better for your significant other or catch the eye of that special someone, your first step should involve understanding which garments, styles and colors should and should not be matched together.
Add pizazz to a white button-down shirt by wearing it under a colorful cardigan or striped blazer. For a sporty take on this classic garment, wear a casual track jacket made of a shiny fabric over the shirt.
Create an elegant, refined look by wearing a white shirt with white pants or shorts.
Pair medium or high-rise pants, which can partially hide a belly, with light-colored tops if you have a heavy midsection.
Wear loud Hawaiian print shirts or striped rugby tops with toned-down bottoms such as khakis or medium wash jeans.
Wear a solid colored tee or V-neck shirt underneath a patterned or solid colored sweater.
Avoid wearing European-style shorts that end at the calf with tops that have three quarter or full-length sleeves. Instead, opt for a cap-sleeved or sleeveless shirt.
Use patterned and colorful waistcoats, pocket squares, and ties to add excitement to a muted color palette in formal wear.
