We use accessories to make us individuals, especially for men, as your clothing does not change much in shape and style. I am always preaching the classics as we get older but we still want to look like we have a spring in our step when it comes to style. Use scarves, hats, cufflinks, ties, and shoes to change up a look. GO FOR IT GUYS, HAVE SOME FUN WHEN YOU GET READY TO GO OUT AND ABOUT.
What is dressing "out of the box"? To me it's taking classic clothing and putting a spin on it. Not one piece of the outfit is outrageous, it's the way the people put it together that makes "it"Happen, makes it "out of the box."
I love the website Sartorialist it's all about street fashion, what people do with their clothes in real life. Here is the link. http://www.thesartorialist.com/. If you love clothes and not just fashion it's definitely the place to go for great ideas. Looking dapper, being classic but a bit out of the box is what it's all about. Below is a young women in Europe, now I am not promoting smoking, (absolutely not) just what a great look, putting together total classic pieces but the use of color is what makes it "out of the box."
Look at these shoes, do they rock or what? Come on someone buys these and then show up dancing in them. Below that is a new way to think about pocket squares for your jacket. Love the bandanna look if they are too bulky you can always cut them down. Hey, they are not that expensive.
I belong to a social networking group that is 3456 members strong. We are an extremely active group, by that I mean we go dancing, biking, golfing, happy hours, scavenger hunts etc. We have events almost everyday of the week...some people are retired some are not. It's great the people are wonderful too. . Some are single some are married.
I see a lot of fashion faux pas in the group especially for those that are trying to attract the attention of a possible mate. So for you guys here goes. Wear nice shoes even with your jeans do not wear tennis. Wear great fitting jeans, we like to see "booty" too. Wear a beautiful shirt or sweater,pay attention to detail as with a belt or cufflinks, (yes I said cufflinks). Or roll your shirt sleeves for a little attitude. Show us you care about yourself so we know you will care about us.
