Help Your Man Master The Casual Smart Look

Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for the man in your life, or you simply want to help him reach his aspirations and present the kind of image to the world that you know he deserves, there’s a lot that a partner’s guiding hand can do to up their man’s fashion game. Here, we’re going to look at what you can do to help master the line between smart and casual, with wear that’s suitable for the every day, while still giving off a sense of class and attention to detail.

A good pair of shoes matter

Shoes, for guys, are just as often about signifying status as they are about wearing something practical for your feet. Your guy doesn’t need to switch it up to leather shoes or anything of the like to enjoy a slightly more classy look. A good pair of Derby shoes can be a plus, that’s for sure, but if he likes his sneakers, you can instead look at the more minimalist style. Paring it down can be as much an indicator of class as adding even more attention to detail, and shoes are a perfect fit for that. 

Yes, he can still wear jeans

There are a lot of guys who do not feel comfortable wearing trousers that are a little more up the smartness scale for their everyday wear. That’s fine. Jeans don’t automatically disqualify someone from looking like they care about their appearance. It’s all about what jeans they wear. You might want to pay more attention to the label, as with Dolce and Gabbana jeans. Of course, it’s not just the label that matters either, but the quality of work and trends that it conveys.

A shirt with a little more sway

When your man thinks of shirts, he might think of the stuffy style that he has to wear for work, but there are shirt styles that are a lot less constricted and less structured. The Oxford shirt is the perfect example of this, able to convey both a clean-cut look when it’s worn tucked in with a pair of trousers, or for a more light-hearted style when it’s left to hang out. It’s one of the few shirt styles that’s designed to look good when it’s not tucked in, so he’s not going to be looking dishevelled. He can rock it open with a nice, minimalist t-shirt beneath it, as well.

A little layering can go a long way

You don’t want to over-accessorise a smart-casual outfit and get it looking gaudy, but it’s a style that typically exudes minimalism and restraint. As such, you can do a little to add some detail and colour to it. For instance, the addition of a good light men’s scarf to the mix can be a nice highlight of colour. A high-quality beanie hat can be a good addition, as well.

The tips above can help you make a big difference in how your man presents himself, which can also do wonders for his self-image and self-esteem.
