Mens Style 101

 My guy friends have been asking for a post on Mens fashion since a while and when I stumbled upon these drool-worthy snapshots of stylish men on a streetstyle blog, I took out my notepad and jotted down  a few tips that I would like to point out to see more men dressed like the ones in these pictures. Here goes!

  • Own a pair of white jeans. They are the equivalent of a womans little black dress.
  • Layering isn't just for the ladies. Fish out your waistcoats, double breasted jackets and vests and layer on! Keep it simple, don't mix patterns and you're good to go.
  • The world judges you by your shoes so if you're investing in one item, make the shoes good!
  • Brown belt and black shoes is an absolute no. Always match these two.
  • Plaid was a trend in 2010. Lets keep up with the calendar and leave the checks where they belong - in the past!
  • Cardigans portray effortless style.
  • Dress according to your body shape. If you're heavy on the belly, round neck tee's aren't for you. Instead, opt for collared ones.
  • Don't be afraid to wear pink. Just the fact that you took the chance by trying it is earning you brownie points.
  • Wearing a logo on your belt doesn't make you stylish. If you want to flaunt your bank balance, invest in a watch.
  • When in doubt, wear Ralph Lauren.
  • Shorts and a shirt make a fantastic combination. (Make sure the shorts aren't plaid and/or nylon)
  • Nike is for the playground. Keep it there!
  • Lastly, just as Barney Stinson would say - nothing beats a well fitted suit. 

P.S. - Don't be intimidated by the pictures below. That can only be attained with practice. Nevertheless, you have to start somewhere :)

Whether its donning paisley prints with a cardigan, texturing leather with wool or rocking a navajo trouser, these men had me drooling for their style. This is the truest and most explicit form of eye candy! What makes it better? Its a rare sight.
