Start with the basics
When helping your man with a wardrobe makeover, start with the basics. Invest in pieces that will form the foundation of his collection. Also, ensure they are versatile and easy to mix and match. Some basics to consider include:
- A classic white tee
- A tailored button-down shirt
- A well-fitting pair of jeans
- A versatile blazer
- A chic sports jacket
Think beyond the basics and add a couple of overshirts to your list because they can definitely elevate his looks. And they can also add an element of interest to your man’s closet.
Pick some accessories
Accessories can make a world of difference in a man’s outfit. Start with shoes for all occasions- work, casual outings, gym, and vacations. Once you have them all in your partner’s wardrobe, add more details.
A simple watch, a cool pair of sunglasses, and a stylish belt can take an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Help him experiment with different accessories so that he can master the skill of mix and matching.
Enjoy the experience
A wardrobe makeover should be fun for you and your partner! You can even take it as a chance to bond over something new and exciting. Be willing to do new things and experiment with different trends and styles.
If something doesn’t work out and you don’t agree, it’s not the end of the world. Styling is all about trial and error, so be open to making mistakes.
Helping your man with a closet revamp is a lot of work. Moreover, he should feel comfortable and confident in his new wardrobe. So, have fun with it and make the most of the experience. Happy shopping!
