Let's Hear it for the Boys

The most common mistake that guys make is wearing clothes that don’t properly fit them. Wearing loose fitting clothes sends the message that you don’t care about your appearance but it’s also important to avoid wearing something too tight and accentuates problem areas.

This Fashionisto was wearing all the right sizes when I spotted him on his way to class. He is sporting a knit sweater that is well fitted and serves as a great layer under his coat. The navy peacoat he is wearing is timeless and gives edge to his look. Fit is of a particular importance when it comes to peacoats since it’s a double breasted garment it can have a tendency to create unnecessary bulk around the midsection. This Fashionisto’s coat fits trim through his arms and torso, has high armholes and hits him just below the hips, which are all characteristics of a correct fit. His straight-leg Banana Republic pants are a great choice since baggy pants would overwhelm his outfit. He finished off his look with a brown messenger bag from Etsy and brown Banana Republic shoes that complement the navy look he has going. An outfit this well-fitted enables you to accomplish such effortless and chic style.

The fit of your clothes undermines the style and color of your entire outfit. Therefore, It is important to note your correct size when purchasing clothes. Wearing clothes that fit gives you a more streamlined and polished look.

Hint: If it doesn’t fit, don’t wear it. Take proper measurements of your body frequently to know what you’re working with; this can make shopping for a better fit much easier. When deciding on the fit of a piece, always aim for something that will even out your body proportions and give you a neater silhouette.
