LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: A Hot Style Cue From Soldiers

Let's Hear it for the Boys

In How I Met Your Mother, Barney always asked Ted to suit up when they meeting girls and he was frequently frustrated by Ted’s reluctance to do so. Barney’s suggestion is not a bad idea. Ask a girl what outfits make a guy look cute? She mostly will say a suit. A guy in a fitted suit absolutely amazes girls. But suiting up is trying too hard sometimes. Is any casual look has the same magic? However, there’s something else that can help impress: the military uniform.

Believe it or not, many of my high school friends said they want to marry soldiers in the future, because soldiers look so cool. I think their uniform absolute help to the sentiment.

Military-inspired clothing is the best replacement of a suit in a casual look. This Fashionisto gives us a straight illustration. His khaki green military jacket adds him strong masculine touch. Some worn-out vintage details lend a dose of street cool to this jacket, but its slim fit makes him seem polished and put-together.

A simple jeans and a pair of lace-up combat boots work perfect with a military jacket. The key to pulling off this look is detail. Remember to tuck jeans into your boots. Then, a sleek and strong look is complete. This winning combination is not only practical for the rainy season, but also surprisingly flattering on any man, no matter if he is 16 or 40.

If you think the whole outfit looks too strong, a soft accessory can fix it. By accessorizing with a knit scarf like this Fashionisto did, you can look warm and cozy.

Hint: Guys can arm themselves with canvas bags, lace-up boot and clothes with camo accents and uniform detail. A classic green military jacket is always a great choice. Sometimes opting to a fancy one can refresh your look. Whatever jacket you decide to wear, be sure to look smart to impress.
