Just because some of us may be dads, doesn’t mean we have to adhere to the overly frumpy dress code. Vans and converses are acceptable with jeans. Keep the running shoes for your #fitfam needs.
“U.P”s as I like to call them. I know for a fact that one thing girls look at is how well guys’ clothes fit. I am not a voltron for the ‘skinny trousers agenda’ but I do agree that well tailored pants, be it jeans or smart trousers’ go a long way in defining the line between ‘suave gentleman’ and ‘clumsy unkempt fellow’.
Try and stay away from dark , dull colors like grey or coffee brown. Nobody likes an overly conspicuous ‘peacock,’ but a little color never hurt nobody. Guys, mint, pale pink, light blue and light purple (lilac) are your friends. Black is always a safe option.
This is a sworn enemy. Run away from this, your shoes should not double up as fishing hooks. Opt for better fitting narrow toe oxfords or even monk straps.
It’s a general staple. Have at least five crisp, quality-fabric , white shirts in your wardrobe, they go with anything and automatically make you look like you have your life together. You’re welcome!
When it comes to the fashionable Lagos scene, men’s fashion and style enthusiast Denola Adepetun always puts his best foot forward. So it goes without saying that he knows a thing or two about dressing not just fashionably, but fashionably well.
So today, Denola who recently launched his blog – DenolaGrey.com – will be guiding our male fashion lovers (and females who would love to see their men dress a little more fashionably) on some tips when it comes to menswear.
Find a haircut and barber that suits you perfectly and get it tamed once a week. It takes 20 minutes out of your day and can create positive lasting first impressions.
Alright guys, I’m ready to see us get out there and put in more effort. You have the right to personal style too. The girls don’t have to get all the applause.
