Let’s face it, if you have a boyfriend, fiancee, or husband, you know they struggle to ‘get’ fashion. They might think they know how to dress smart, but do they really know the right colour combinations or the right way to accessorise an outfit?

No, they don’t. In fact, a lot of the time they just chuck on whatever’s comfortable and don’t really care about their outfit. You know this is perfectly fine if they’re just going to the shops or you’re not really doing anything. But, when the two of you go out as a couple and go on a date or go somewhere nice, you want both of you to look good. After all, you spent a lot of time making sure you look great, so shouldn’t they?

So, it’s time to sit them down and give them a few fashion pointers that will help them pick out the right outfits and look good all the time.

Learn What Matches

Guys have a real struggle when it comes to learning what colours match each other. This often causes them to wear clothes that look nice on their own, but don’t combine well together at all. Like, yeah, those jeans are nice, and I like that top too, but that doesn’t mean they look good as an outfit because the colours completely clash. Show them articles like this one here https://theidleman.com/manual/advice/how-match-clothing-colours/ that pretty much explain how to match colours. If they learn how to get this right, then they’ll definitely be able to put together good outfits from here on in.

Men Can Accessorise Too

It’s rare that a guy will buy accessories for their outfits, but they really should. Something like a nice watch on their wrist can add to an outfit. Or, as seen here https://www.frostnyc.com/collections/diamond-combo, a diamond necklace to completely amp up their look and give them that celebrity style. Even something simple like a pair of sunglasses or a hat can go well with different outfits, particularly in the summer. The bottom line is, they need to know that accessories can help bring their outfits together, and shouldn’t be neglected.

Dress For Occasions

Finally, you have to teach them to dress for different occasions. I recently posted an article on the popular athleisure trend, and most guys are hugely into this. The problem is, they wear this type of clothing when it’s just not suitable. We’re going out on a date, you need to change out of your gym sweatpants and into something nice. Guys have to learn when to tone things up, and when to tone down. It doesn’t matter how good their outfit is, when worn in the wrong setting, it can embarrass them and you. Make sure they have different clothes that can fit different situations and don’t just fill their wardrobes up with the same things.

There you have it, this is the advice you should give to your man about fashion. They’ll act like they don’t care, but trust me, they’ll listen and love you for it.
