Growing Your Style Up : Pt 1 .

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to as always take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post , Growing Your Style Up : Pt 1 . Today I am going to slip on my Fashion Stylist hat and work with menswear. Im going to help all my potential clients that are or would be men and help them to push their style game to another level or as the title suggests Grow their Style Up. How ? You maybe asking , well im going to give you laid out looks that I have put together using the Tom Ford 2019 menswear collection.

The reason im using piece’s from the Tom Ford menswear collection is because his clothing is always so well done and im extremely impressed with his looks from this season. So the first thing that we are going to start with today is….Stepping up your suit game. Basically knowing and learning how to put together and buy a suit ,or suit separates . First most important fact that you should know when it comes to Growing Your Style Up or dressing it up especially, always remember (Quality Over Quantity). Which is another reason I chose to work with the Tom Ford collection, because you can’t get any better quality than clothing by Tom Ford. So let’s get started.

Stepping up your suit game.

The most important thing to know about buying a suit or suit separates, is fit ,fit , and fit , your suit should always be well tailored and made to look like it was made exactly for you. Next the most important colors you can have for a suit are Grey , Navy , and if you can find it Brown. In between there you can fit in various patterns and alternative colors within that spectrum.

Here I have shown you two ways to style a conventional suit , one in Brown and one in navy , now with the brown I have styled it with a spread collar pink dress shirt that would look great with both a tie and without, the key to your shirt looking great without a tie is to choose a high quality dress shirt without a flemsy collar so that it sits above your collar and does not get flattened in the suit. The pink shirt also gives the suit the suit that right pop of color to stand out , then to really make the suit pop a non conventional pocket square to make it all come together. Then the shoe , the right shoe alway makes or breaks the suit , a nice brown shoe goes a long way , as I always say , just because a black shoe goes with everything does not mean it should always be worn. I styled the navy suit , to give you more of a dressy casual look , putting it together with a turtleneck instead of a dress shirt showing you the range of a great suit. I also gave you a two toned pocket square for a pop of color and a grey shoe to really bring all the colors together. Now let’s look at some additional ways to wear suits and separates.

Here im giving you a separates look using green and grey for the color base with green being the standout color . Im pulling the look together this time with a floral tie and once again a grey shoe and yes it is ok to mix patterns with the tie and the pocket square.

Next im giving you the wool suit, but im pairing it with a denim shirt for a great dressy casual look , the tie can be optional depending on where you are going , I also wanted to show you how to wear the look with two different styles of a shoe.

Then here I wanted to give you the same wool suit with a classic white shirt , spread collar again and a solid tie to complement the multi colored and patterned pocket square.

Now let’s move a little more into separates, in both looks neutral colors are being used and the looks were done with no tie for more of a once again dressy casual approach to the look , and incase you are wondering, no cream and white are no longer just summer colors but all year round colors depending on the material that the item is made of.

For the last look I wanted to show seperates again , but this time took the look in a different direction by giving a more traditional look with a floral tie and pink being the highlight color , another important idea to keep in mind is Never be afraid of color. Now we are going to make a style transition from Stepping your suit game up , into taking your casual style to another level.

Stepping up your casual style .

Casual style does not always mean just throwing on a pair of sweats and some sneakers, what im about to do is show you how to make the most out of casual looks , so let’s get started on enhancing your casual style.

there is an expression that goes ( Dressing good is a form of good manners) even when it comes to your casual style. Sometimes you got to leave sneakers and ill fitting jeans behind for some well tailored pants or properly sized jeans that complement your shoes and add even more to the rest of your look. Once again the key to achieving a great casual style is fit , fit , and fit , as you can see in the pictures above I gave two casual looks both using a leather shirt and the alternative of that a suede shirt , for both looks the key elements are the ankle dress boots , both of these looks are fairly easy to pull off , it all depends on how much you want to enhance your own personal style .

Stepping your casual game up is usually easier than stepping up your suit game , because it doesn’t necessarily require a good eye for details, but just the willingness to try something new from a style prospective. All of these looks include a major key element to a great casual look , and that is a timeless leather jacket paired with the right fit of jeans or dress pants and the classic dress boot that can effortlessly go from a suit to a pair of jeans. Another important factor to keep in mind when it comes to Growing Your Style Up is , you don’t have to completely break the bank to do so , you don’t have to spend as high as Tom Ford ,

but you do want to invest in quality peice’s , so be willing to spend some money cause quality last longer as opposed to disposable fashion. There it is , we have reached the end of yet another blog post, hopefully I have helped you to begin on your journey to improve your personal style.
