Most men like to think of themselves as being stylish, but style is unfortunately not something that comes naturally to everyone. Too many still end up making major mistakes without even realizing it. This often happens when they become older and aren’t really sure where they fit in terms of style. Let’s take a look at some of the most common fashion mistakes men over 30 make and how to avoid them.
Not Accessorizing Properly
One common mistake that men over 30 make is either not accessorizing or not doing it properly. However, when used properly, accessories are one of the things that can elevate your style the most. This is why we would suggest that you start learning right now. Learn how to choose the right watch for your wrist and skin tone. You should also learn how to combine pieces without them looking too gaudy.
Being Afraid of Certain Brands
A lot of people also make the mistake of thinking that certain brands are for certain ages. This is often the case with designers like Versace, for instance. However, Versace, like many others, has items for everybody. They have tons of items that would look great on people of any age, like watches, eyewear, and things like bathrobes. Versace’s selection of loafers is also very impressive and can fit perfectly in any mature man’s wardrobe.
You could get away with not understanding how layers worked in your 20s, but this is what will really give you that sophisticated look you should be going for right now. It’s very important that you master the fundamentals of layering now as it’s the single most important thing if you really want to separate yourself from the rest.
One of the most important things to remember is that every piece has to serve a function. You also have to understand in which order you should layer pieces. As a rule, you should always go from the lightest to the busiest pattern in any direction. Go for lighter colors first then gradually go for darker tones. Also, keep it to three layers in total or less.
Not Wearing a Sport’s Jacket
We understand that you may not be in a hurry to grow up, but you shouldn’t be afraid to look your age. One of the most important pieces you’ll need to get familiar with is the sports jacket. If you’ve never worn one, we would suggest you try it out. These can look classy without looking too formal and work well during both the day and evenings. Sports jackets will also tighten up your silhouette and make you look a bit more muscular. This is a must for any man over the age of 30 and they can be worn with a sweater, buttoned-up shirt, or a polo.
If you are finding yourself committing any of these errors, stop immediately. By fixing them, you’ll instantly look better and start owning your grown man style.
