Here’s the thing about men: not all of them care about style. Sure, they dress well enough, look clean and polished through date-night or even when they’re out with the boys…but at the root of it, style isn’t something they think about 24/7.
So if you’ve ever wondered what it’ll take to get your man dressing a little bit better and step out of his standard uniform of shirt and jeans…it’s this: channel the way Parisians do it and get him to focus on the details.
After all, there’s nothing wrong with a simple shirt and jeans look, it’s a classic favourite. But there are ways to up his style by adding a dash of savoir faire – channeling the French standard of keeping looks tailored and polished, but uncomplicated.
As inspired by French premium label Daniel Hechter, we’re looking through their F/W’16 Lookbook for inspiration on how to dress our man better.
With the brand often regarded as the inventor of prêt-à-porter (aka ready-to-wear), Daniel Hechter is known for its iconic premium designs that blend French savoir faire with sporty elegance and tailored sophistication. And the creative eye behind it all is none other than Christophe Blondin, a designer who has extensive experience working for major designer labels and knows how to pull a man’s style together.
Ready to style your man? Here’s how you can upgrade his look from “just average” to “polished.”
It's how you wear, and not what you wear
Sometimes, a simple tweak on how you wear something is all it takes to polish a look. So if your man is constantly in jeans that look scrunched at the bottom, up his cool-factor by getting him to cuff the jeans. This not only makes the cut of the jeans look better fitted to his frame, but it also adds an interesting detail to highlight his shoes.
