In the past few decades, menswear has blurred the lines between smart and casual, shirts have begun to lose their pockets, collarbones and even sleeves and buttons have gotten into the revamping game. Now it seems the traditional suit does not represent the businessman any more, Donatella Versace proclaimed, “Nor does the loud shirt represent the rock star. The same man can now wear both.” The very idea of having a trained dress code for men to follow has become rather boring. No lad in this decade wishes to go by a one-dimensional blue print.
The casualty of the men’s wardrobe has really started to muddy the waters, particularly for those who used to rely on formality. How do you wear a shirt without a tie? When you pass by an advertisement for the latest new styles for the season, on the model it can look rather spiffy! Reality is how do you put this super look together and not look like a disaster? The only way to survive in the fashion game is to become rather “Street Smart.” A person who has a lot of common sense when it comes to fashion knows what is going on in the world. This person understands all groups in the style field and is up on all the latest trends.
Not everyone can become a male fashion guru overnight, so don’t feel you have to be an expert in order to dress sharp. Having your own independent state of mind can really reevaluate your style game! A street smart person listens to advice and understands how to rework those tips into their own style. Here are 5 useful ways to become more dashingly street smart!
1) Be Bold
For the brave and the bold, connect with the luxury heading with a pair of stunner-outspoken shades!
The right shades can be dapper and rugged for the season.
Seamlessly transitioning from one look to the next.
This accessory is worth the investment.
2) In The Mix
You are absolutely comfortable in your own skin. Enjoy being unique, be a little different be tough and try something out of the ordinary. Don’t change your style just your patterns and how you sport them. Don’t be afraid to venture outside of the traditional way to wear a tailored look.
Wacky embellishments and the details make all the difference. It’s refreshing that men are being a bit braver with fabric bases, print and sizing. Sport a tailored coat with a pair of fitted plaid trousers for a more unique appearance. The colours we thought might be to outré have often turned out to be the bestsellers.
Extreme patterns can intimidate and almost make most men shy away from being unexpected. The best way around this dilemma is to start small. Try a well-fitted elegant suit shirt with equally classic stripped socks for a more demure appearance.
3) What Time Is It
In this day and age with technology ruling the world, we forget the most effortless appeal of a nicely polished watch. Walking around the city you always stop to look at your arm to see what the time is. What better way to fiercely represent your culture then wearing a timeless fashion statement of all time.
The elegance, combined Ivy League style, creates a versatile modernist to momentarily escape the face-paced streets.

This tailored coat can instantly make your entire look super dressy the moment you put it on.
It is defiantly a versatile piece that will keep you toasty warm as the seasons change.
