Here’s a post for the guys to get a little fashion inspiration—because all girls appreciate a well dressed guy.
Meet my cousin Charlie. He is 17, a senior in high school and will hopefully be a future horned frog with me! (He was accepted into TCU!)
Shop the look
SWEATER: Peter Millar | VEST: From Burberry (Similar above) | SCARF: Burberry | JEANS: Seven | SHOES: Ralph Lauren (Suggested above)
My biggest tip for guys is to layer. The more you layer, the more stylish you appear.
Charlie layered a t-shirt, quarter-zip sweater, vest and a scarf. Points for him.
If Charlie were to wear just a t-shirt…boring! Add a sweater…a little better. Throw on a scarf and vest…BAM! It really is that easy.
KNOW YOUR COLORS
Another tip is to wear clothes that compliment your coloring.
You know you’re wearing the wrong color if…

KNOW YOUR SIZE
It’s important to wear clothes that fit your body. Clothes that are too small are not flattering; clothes that are too big look sloppy.
KNOW YOUR STYLE
It's helpful if you have an idea about what style you like. Do you tend to be drawn towards more preppy, trendy, sporty or hipster styles? Shop at stores that have the clothes that match your preferred style.
Here are a few store suggestions you can shop at for your preferred style:
Preppy: Banana Republic, J.Crew and Ralph Lauren.
Sporty: Lulu Lemon, Adidas and Nike.
Hipster: Urban Outfitters.
Once you figure out the general look you like, it simplifies shopping and helps you establish an easy and stylish wardrobe that goes together.
Remember: no outfit is complete without a smile and of course, always be a gentleman. No well dressed guy is stylish if their manners are lacking. If you missed that post, click here.
Special thanks to Charlie for a fun photo shoot and Ty Dowda for the photos.
