5 Tips To Own Your Style – 2017 Men’s Resolutions

5 Ways To Improve Your Style in 2017

We at Cheap-Neckties believe in the power of goals! We’re here to help guide you as you plan out your style for 2017. Here are 5 ways to help narrow down your fashion vision for the year while still taking steps forward. Cheers to what’s ahead!

 

1. Purge + Simplify

More than ever consumers are feeling the kickback of purchasing in excess. Closets are full but the desired style is still lacking. Take the time to go through your closet this January and throw out items you haven’t worn in months. Don’t hold onto basic items you wear once a year. Declutter your crowded closet (and mind) by minimizing your options. 

2. Invest

Having a tailor or investing in a tailored suit hasn’t been a priority for recent generations. Not until you have your first tailored suit will you appreciate the difference. Take the time this year to source out the best tailor in your area and pay the pretty penny for the best suit of your life. Follow this up by staying in shape to keep up your size – but that’s a different resolution.

3. Find Your Lane 

Part of growing your style is beginning to pinpoint your fashion strengths and weaknesses and what looks best on your body type. Identify the pieces you wear well and make you feel confident. Dive further into those specific areas so your personal style and brand becomes apparent to others. Avoid jumping from trend to trend.

4. Accessorize

We’re all for accessories. The trick is to know what, and how much. You never want to over accessorize but should feel free to include pieces that will individualize your style. Make sure to have the menswear basics – neckties and pocket squares. If this is already your norm, try adding a tie bar or lapel pin. These items can easily take a look to the next level without breaking the bank and doing a full 180 on a wardrobe.

5. Take Time For One New Trend

As the seasons change, new trends come and go. The classics in men’s fashion will always be in style, but this year take the time to try out one new trend instead of every shift that comes your way. Be grounded in your personal style but don’t be afraid to infuse other influences once in awhile.

Winter Professional Wear Pyramid – Capsule Wardrobe
New Neckties: Red, Gray, and Navy Plaid

Winter Professional Wear Pyramid

Winter Professional Pyramid for Men

 

Earlier this year we created a Summer Prep Pyramid Capsule for Men. Based on that same idea, we’ve created a second pyramid focused on Winter Professional Attire. If this is your first intro into the world of capsule wardrobes, here’s the basic need-to-knows:

In a minimalistic world, this new trend agrees with the theme that less is more. Central to the capsule being a success is a rearrangement of your closet to contain only essential, versatile items and building your style from there. Rather than exhausting yourself to have fragments of every trend and genre of fashion, this initiative gives attention to your wardrobe staples which lets the trendier, eye-candy pieces, stand out more. Start by finding what you love to wear, your go-tos, and what is easily paired with almost anything. Then, invest your clothing budget into buying quality pieces that will remain a faithful companion in your closet. 

1 Coat

For fall and winter, an overcoat is an everyday necessity for the commuting man. A peacoat in navy is a stylish way to keep yourself from the blistering outdoors.

2 Shoes

Keep the shoes simple for your winter wear. A quality pair of brogue boots in brown and black oxfords will give you the best of both worlds.

3 Blazers

Fall and winter offer a reason to layer up! Keep it toasty with your style on point with a navy blazer, tweed jacket, and shawl neck sweater.

4 Pairs of Pants

Curate four pairs of quality pants in navy, gray wool, carmel wool, and black dress pants.

5 Shirts

Choose five styles of shirts in varying colors and patterns.

6 Neckties

For your winter neckwear accessories, choose the best colors of the season. Navy, maroon, and dark greens with varying patterns and solids.

Flannel shirts have made a comeback and are back in style this fall season! Their classic check design can easily be paired with a solid or light patterned necktie.

Planning a wedding for Fall? Not only do we think the natural beauty of Fall makes this season one of the best, the vibrant colors do most of the work! Don’t be afraid to use the outdoors to your advantage and fuse them into your color scheme. Combinations of berry and navy, burnt orange and grey, or forest green and taupe are iconic to this wonderful time of year. The cooler weather also allows for more creativity with fabrics and accessories. Choosing a wool suit or tweed jacket for the groom and a bridal gown with sleeves will add some individualistic style to your wedding.
