A lot of men have trouble finding themselves when it comes to fashion. They may see something they like on someone and try to replicate the look, only for them to end up disappointed because it doesn’t look as good on them. Looking at others for inspiration can be a good thing, but you can’t just try to copy someone else’s look. You will need to look at a variety of factors before you can tell which pieces fit you and your personality the best. Let’s take a look at how you can build a personal style as a man.

Look at Your Frame

The very first thing you have to do before you start looking at style options is your frame. Someone with a long, slim frame cannot wear the same thing as someone who’s wide and stocky. Knowing how to dress for your body frame will allow you to enhance your best features while making some of your flaws look less apparent.

There are also specific styles that work better on certain body types than others, and adaptations you might have to make depending on your frame. Someone with a rectangular or triangular body shape can look great in an oxford shirt or polo and nothing else, while someone with a rounder or inverted triangle body would look better if they put a blazer over them. So, start learning what to wear and what to avoid based on your body type and keep experimenting from there.

Know Your Colours

A lot of people have difficulty knowing what colours they should wear. One of the easiest ways to know in which category you fall is to place a white and then a black piece of clothing or blanket under your face and look into the mirror. Make sure that the piece of clothing covers your entire body. If you look better in black, then this means your skin tone is warm, and if you look better in white, then your skin tone is considered cool.

People with warm skin tones have to wear cool colours like navy blue or dark green while people with cool skin tones should wear warm colours like orange and red. From then on you can start playing with different palettes until you find something that works.

Look at Style Icons

Only when you have figured out your body frame and palate can you start looking for inspiration from magazines and Pinterest. One thing you could do is look at a celebrity that has roughly the same characteristics as you and in your age group, but do not copy them. Inspire yourself from some of their looks instead while trying a few personal touches to make the style yours.

Invest in High-Quality Pieces

Whatever you do, you have to make sure that you only invest in high-quality pieces. If you want to nail the rugged outdoorsman look, for instance, look at what brands like Hartford clothing have to offer instead of going for cheap department store options. High-quality clothing will fit better, look better, and feel better as well. You also won’t have to worry about it fading or losing its shape after a few washes.

If you want to build a personal style as a man this coming year, follow these few tips. You’ll feel more confident, and comfortable, and stand out for all the right reasons.
