Fashion for Men: 14 Ways to Make Your Boyfriend a Better Dresser

Fashion for men isn't advertised as much as women's fashion, but that doesn't mean guys shouldn't aim to be stylish. If you want to upgrade your man's wardrobe, look no further. We've rounded up the top 14 ways he can up his fashion game.

Leave Things Minimal

We love this combination of blue, black, and white for men. Using three solid-color pieces to create a business-appropriate outfit is an easy way to keep things minimal and polished.

Want to know how to instantly make your man more fashionable? Layers. It's that simple. Adding an undone button-up over a simple tee makes any jeans-and-shirt combination more stylish.

Guys can often pull off color better than they think. Here, greenish pants, a blue pinstripe shirt, and a gray sport coat create a preppy outfit perfect for the office.

So your main squeeze prefers comfort over style? That's okay! Adding accessories like a beanie and patent leather shoes takes a casual outfit to the next level.

Show Off His Kicks

If your man loves sneakers, let him wear sneakers! You can even have him roll up his jeans to show them off. To create a dapper outfit, add a tie to a gingham button-up.

Layer Neutral Pieces

We love the casual, hipster thing happening here. To help your man recreate it, choose neutral-color pieces to layer and, of course, add a beanie.

Mix Prints and Textures

Men can dress up their jeans by pairing them with a vest, jacket, and collared shirt. To make this even more fashion-forward, pick a vest with texture and a sport coat with a windowpane plaid print.

Mix Solid Colors

You can't go wrong when combining two solid-colored pieces—especially when one is a light neutral and the other a vibrant hue. Here, cobalt blue pants make a basic tee trendier without being too bold.

Embrace Stylish Sandals

Yes, men can rock cognac sandals, especially when paired with an untucked button-up, faded jeans, and dark shades. This outfit sends a laid-back, California vibe we can't get enough of on guys.

Nothing says "preppy" like a vibrant outfit and printed loafers. And how cool is the striped elbow patch on this dress shirt?

Use an Achromatic Color Scheme

We know no matter how hard you try, your man might refuse to wear brightly colored clothing—don't worry. An achromatic (all gray-and-black) outfit is just as trendy when you add layers and mix prints and textures.

Add a Cap

Let's face it, baseball caps are hot. And we definitely love them when used to add casual flair to an outfit, like a dress shirt, jeans, and tan oxfords.

Throw in Quirky Details

If your guy is a little quirky, he should wear clothing to reflect it! A fun print, a cool hat, and high-tops make great additions for a man with a little edge.
