Boyfriend Style Guide: How to Dress Your Boyfriend
Trends come and go, but style is always here to stay. So, what should you do if your boyfriend’s style game could use a little refreshing? While sweatpants and cozy cotton tees are a comfortable and relaxed fit for a night in, you’d probably both appreciate the chance to level up his look. To do that, however, you need to know what look to choose.
Whether your boyfriend knows his way around the fashion scene or not, a few minor suggestions couldn’t hurt. We’ll cover how to style his fit from head to toe, and suggest some must-have menswear pieces to stock his wardrobe.
Step 1: Introduce Layers
One of the most vital tricks of the style trade revolves around layering. Adding dimension and texture can take your outfit to the next level. However, some men may think they don’t have many layering options.
Luckily, less is more when it comes to layering. You can boil it down to three main pieces:
Simple staple – Filling your boyfriend’s closet with essential pieces can do wonders for his personal style game. It gives your guy a simple building block to ground his outfit. Some basics include white tank tops, black and white tee shirts, and neutral sweaters.
Secondary shirt – An undone button-up can give off a casual yet elevated look. Stick with solid colors, or introduce some patterns with pops of color into his ensemble. A hoodie or sweater could also work well.
Jacket – If the weather allows, top off the outfit with another coat. Whether it’s a trendy puffer jacket or a classic pea coat, this additional layer can bring the whole piece together. Round out the color palette by reintroducing a neutral color like beige, brown, or black.
Adding layers can make outfit ideas look fresh and intentional. With these three main components, you can create an effortless outfit in no time. After practicing mixing and matching, your boyfriend can feel completely confident in his outfit-making abilities.
Step 2: Make a Statement with Shoes
Trade out your boyfriend’s beat-up sneakers for something a little more high-class. Suitable footwear can set the stage for a whole outfit. It can also act as an opportunity for your boyfriend to show off his personal style.
Next time you go shoe shopping, consider what type of shoe best fits your boyfriend’s brand:
Pair fashion and function with a shoe that can see your boyfriend through the style journey ahead of him.
Step 3: Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize
One of the most effective ways to improve your boyfriend’s style is to add accessories into his wardrobe. While some men may think they can’t get away with more than a wristwatch, there’s so much room to explore and elevate his outfit ideas.
If accessorizing is a new concept for your boyfriend, start simple. After all, a minimalistic look can work wonders. Even a small accessory can make a big difference.
For some excellent starter accessories, consider getting your boyfriend:
Chains – This simple yet luxurious accessory can take your man’s outfit to a whole new level. Draw attention to his best features with a men’s chain to highlight his jawline or beautiful eyes. Whether sporting an open button-down or a turtleneck, a gold chain can add subtle definition.
Earrings – Does your boyfriend have his ears pierced? If so, you can update his go-to look with a stylish pair of new men’s earrings. Go bold with a couple of classic gold hoops or opt for a Hanging Cross Stud Earring for some dramatic flair.
Step 4: Pick Out a Hat
Hats can be a fresh addition to an outfit if worn with intention. Consider the aesthetic you’re after and pick a hat that best suits that style. For example, you could reach for a:
Baseball hat – Baseball caps remain a modern classic. A solid neutral color would go well with any outfit. Or you can show off your hometown pride with a simple graphic design surrounding a city or sports team.
Beanie – Keep the fashion statements coming even in those cold winter months. A simple beanie can pull an outfit together (and keep his ears warm) with ease.
Bucket hat – Bucket hats have become increasingly popular in recent years, making them widely available in different styles and colors. Whether your boyfriend gravitates towards streetwear or beachwear, bucket hats are a fun and casual addition to an outfit.
Step 5: Perfect Your Color Combinations
Basic neutrals are an excellent option, but if your boyfriend is especially outgoing or likes a pop of color, you can reflect his personality with unique palettes and patterns. Before doing that, consider what color combinations work best for your boyfriend.
Consider his hair, skin, and eye color when creating the perfect ensemble:
If he has cool undertones – He’ll probably look best in jewel tones (purple, blue, green, teal), cool grays, and white.
If he has warm undertones – Your boyfriend may want to lean toward earth tones (yellow, red, orange, green), beige, and brown.
Finding colors that bring out your boyfriend’s best features may help him feel more confident and at ease with his style. And when in doubt, have him wear whatever makes him feel the most like himself.
