Fashion isn’t just for females. Of course, men have their own share of fashionable adventures and affairs. The trend of male fashion also changes along with the trend of female fashion, and sometimes there are even more fashionable changes in men section clothing than in the female section. But what a man would want is to have his fashion sense flexible enough to match all of his appointments without making him look unpleasant, weird, or off. It’s a good thing to have some of the trendiest and coolest outfits in the world of fashion today, even if you’re a straight guy.
The apparel does a lot in completing an individual’s overall look. When a guy has a good set of clothing, he can become more attractive and sexy to females around him. This can add to his attraction factor, and more girls would be interested in dating him or hooking up with him. Likewise, having a fashionable but professional look makes a man more mature and respectable, and this can add to his overall personality. A lot of people may regard him as a strong but compassionate individual who has a lot of great traits and characteristics to share with the world. That’s how deep an outfit can go.
One of the trendiest clothes that men wear today is the sweater vest. Sweater vests are basically tops with no sleeves, a V-cut neck line, and a stitched cardigan fabric just like a sweater. These are called sweater vests because they have a sweater fabric but a vest style appearance. But like both sweaters and vests, these are used as secondary tops – tops that you wear over another top, especially when it’s cold. Wearing a sweater vest is practical for places where it’s quite cold but not that cold to call for a full size sweater or jacket. But lately, sweater vests have invaded the fashion world like leggings in women. Apart from their practical use, they are now hailed are very trendy and stylish pieces of clothing that every man should have in his wardrobe. For that reason, every man should also know how to wear a sweater vest.
Because of its practical applications, sweater vests can be used for all occasions. For formal occasions, these are best paired with long sleeve shirts with collars and a necktie. The tie should be under the vest. Bow ties are also alright to wear, but neckties have a more formal and professional look. Depending on your preference, there are a lot of different styles and colors of sweater vests that you can get. However, it is a must for you to match the color of the long sleeve shirt and the tie with the vest. If you’re wearing a dark vest, wear a lightly colored long sleeve shirt and a necktie with a color that’s almost the same as the vest.
You can also use a sweater vest in a more casual way. Wear it over a short sleeve collared shirt and khaki shorts. Denim shorts are definitely a no-no on sweater vests. White denim shorts or corduroy may also match well with sweater vests. Pair the outfit with topsiders and the look is complete. But make sure you use neutral tones so that there’s not a lot of colors playing on your look.
There are also some things that you should never do when you wear sweater vests. Don’t wear a color of shirt that’s as bright as the vest. Never wear the vest with denim. Always wear a collared shirt under the vest, or else wear a body fit undershirt that serves as underwear and not a main top. And finally, don’t overdress just to say you’re wearing a sweater vest. A natural fashion sense that matches the event is more appealing than a trying hard look.
