Fashion is a very spectacular avenue for self-expression. We often watch changes in female trends and fashion, but we might rarely notice the evolution of male fashion. Some people argue that men should not follow fashion, because they say, men have fewer choices on how to dress.  But, I disagree. There are some at CATS Academy Boston who agree with me.

I talked to four well known and fashionable male CATS students who make radically different style choices.  I sought their fashion advice. Here is what they recommended:

  1. Do not be afraid to experiment. If you got bored with your everyday appearance, maybe it is time to change something like your hairstyle?

Look at famous actors and models, for instance, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman or David Beckham, whose haircuts are very stylish and elegant. Would they look as good without their distinctive hairstyles?

  1. Find your style. Try to figure out what kind of clothes fit you well and make you look your best.

Some guys like wearing oversized hoodies and baggy jeans that really don’t fit them. A reexamination of style might be needed.   It is easy to look better in an usual shirt with classic pants. The best way to find your style is to go to the shops and try on different clothes. Take a friend and let them help determine your style.

If you are looking for stylish and fashionable clothes, you might find them in shops such as Anti Social Social Club, Supreme, Hugo Boss, Boy London, Thrasher, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Zara and Kenneth Cole. These shops offer a big choice of fashionable clothes for young men.

  1. Add accessories to your outfits, but they should be tasteful, not extra-large.

Fashionable accessories should not be big like the giant jewelry some entertainers wear. Good watches, stylish sunglasses, luxurious cufflinks or a classic black hat are excellent examples of what to consider.  It could be whatever you want.

Men’s fashion is every bit as important as women’s.  So, men should try to make an effort to look good and up-to-date. But, also keep in mind that, “Style is what you carry within yourself, not what you buy,” according to Stefano Gabbana.
