Buying jeans may seem like a straightforward task: after all, they are essential when it comes to a man‘s wardrobe. In fact, you probably have multiple pairs which means you are prepared for every occasion. Dress them up with shirt and smart shoes, or keep it simple with a t-shirt and trainers; either way you have an easy, ready-made outfit. However, if you‘re on the lookout for new jeans, or you want to switch up your style when it comes to your all-time favourite trousers, it can be confusing.
Choosing the right fit
There are many different ways your jeans can fit you, and it can depend on your personal preference. Ranging from relaxesed to slim fit, you can choose just how snug you want your new jeans. You can also choose from a more classic fit, a straight leg fit and the popular slim fit.
Buying the right color
Why stick to your usual blue jeans? There are so many funways to wear jeans now that you can have a whole wardrobe of different shades, perfect for different events and times of the year. While blue jeans are great for everyday wear, consider branching out and looking at some different colors.Black jeans are perfect for the evening and going to social events where a casual dress code is implied. You can also choose from a range of shades such as dusty pink, sand and various hues of blue. Do not restrict yourself to the usual; play around with different colors paired with t-shirts, shirts or polo shirts to find your individual look.
Oversized clothing often has a reputation for being the clothes you wear when you don’t want to put any effort into your outfit or look for the day. Loose, shapeless clothes like hoodies, sweaters, and giant T-shirts looks good when you make good combination.
Here are 7 tips how to wear oversized outfits
1. STAY NEAR YOUR SIZE
If you just want a piece to be a bit looser than it should be, always stay within two to three sizes of your standard size to avoid unflattering all-over bagginess.
2. KEEP DETAIL
Stay away from details that add extra bulk to your clothes, like textured appliqués or think, chunky materials.
Instead, go for pieces with subtler accents like lace trim, scalloped hems, or a textured neckline.
3. SHOW SOME SKIN
Throw on a long, oversized sweater or tee without bottoms to show off the natural shape of your legs. Also, oversized jumpers can look great if you show your shoulder.
4. KEEP SOME STRUCTURE
All your piece needs are some kind of fitted shape for eyes to land on that isn’t just an endless ocean of baggy fabric. This structure can be anything, from a tight, cowl neckline on an oversized sweater to a wide, bold collar on a loose-fitting coat or blazer.
5. GO WITH TIGHTS
Pair black tights with an oversized sweater or T-shirt and heeled booties to create a slimming and streamlined finish. Add a cinching belt to your waistline if the oversized-tee-and-nothing-else look feels a bit shapeless on you.
6. TRY A SHORT SKIRT
A short skirt can help balance out an oversized top. Finish off your look with chunky sneakers or booties that draw attention to your bottom half and prevent you from looking top-heavy.
7. PICK TEXTURE CAREFULLY
Thicker fabrics and chunky knits are more likely to make you look larger than you really are, so balance these materials with leggings or other slim bottoms. Use a belt or tuck loose tops into a tight waistband to emphasize your natural shape.
