As the leaves drop from the trees and the air grows colder, there’s no doubt that fall is arriving all across the country. For most men, this means a change in clothing brought on by necessity.
But your fall wardrobe can be far more than just a warmer coat. The beginning of the season can be a great time to update your style. Here are four fall fashion tips for the fellas.
1. Tailor your clothes
Most guys know to get a suit tailored to fit their frame, but not as many know the benefits of tailoring more everyday clothes. Jeans, for instance, can often be tailored by most major department stores — at no extra charge or for a small fee.
Slight alterations can make a huge appearance in how your clothes hang off you. Take advantage of in-store tailoring whenever you can.
Alternatively, for clothes you already own, visit a professional tailor. It never hurts to alter your clothes a bit from year to year, because your personal size may change.
The cooler temperatures of fall lend themselves to plenty of ways to showcase good-looking accessories. A nice set of gloves, a scarf, and a hat can be both functional and fashionable. As it gets colder, you need to wear more clothes. Use that to your advantage and pick extra clothes that impress.
3. Smell nice
A dash of cologne is always a nice touch. There are plenty of colognes to choose from, including a new line from Jay-Z. You want to find a scent that you like and that compliments you well.
Try visiting a department store and talk with the salesperson in the cologne section; it never hurts to ask an expert.
The best way to apply cologne is to spray a small amount into the air, and then step through the cloud. You’ll get enough of a scent that people will notice, but not so much that it’ll be overbearing.
4. Style your facial hair
Fall can be a great time for the extra warmth of some facial hair. But with a little bit of effort, you can make your facial hair fashionable. No matter what style you choose — from a beard to a light stubble to everything in between — you want to take proper care of it.
A sharp razor, combined with high quality shaving cream applied with a badger hair shaving brush will have your facial hair looking sharp and well cared for.
Fall fashions can be fun and easy. By following these four tips, you’ll look stylish all this season and beyond.
