Fashion Tips for Men Over 40

Fashion Tips for Men Over 40

If you are a man over the age of 40, you may already be confident and feel secure in terms of your career, relationships and comfortable lifestyle—but is your sense of style something you should be confident about?

Here are some fashion tips you should definitely keep in mind:

  1. Stay away from the fads.
    A man at the age of 40 shouldn’t be following the fads. Instead, he should be dressing up in a manner that is sleek and timeless. Many clothing fads are directed at certain ages and demographics. Jeans with holes at the knee, for example, is not a fad directed at your age group.
  2. Leave the past in the past.
    Certain looks may become popular once more—but that doesn’t mean you have to raid your closet in order to follow them. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a pair of skinny jeans in your closet. Chances are, you’ll still look outdated as opposed to updated.
  3. Keep it simple.
    As you shop, it is easy to see that there are many different kinds of clothing styles to choose from. Keep in mind, however, that the best thing to do is to keep it simple. Subdued colours make for a cleaner, more sophisticated and timeless look.
  4. Avoid the running shoes.
    If you are a man over 40, you should avoid wearing running shoes unless you are running or doing some other form of exercise. Running shoes may be comfortable, but they are not casual footwear. Purchase a pair of casual soft leather shoes instead.
  5. Separate business attire from casual attire.
    What you wear in the office during weekdays shouldn’t be what you wear during weekends. Don’t don your business suit to a dinner party! Instead, wear a pair of straight leg jeans, a dress shirt, a sports coat and a pair of casual loafers.
  6. Have a tailor.
    A man over 40 should no longer be buying dress suits off the rack. Seek the services of a trusted tailor to ensure that everything you wear fits like a glove. Nothing beats having a tailor to go to for last-minute clothing alterations.
  7. Match the accessories with your shoes.
    If you’re wearing a black belt, there’s absolutely no reason you should wear a pair of brown pair of shoes. Wear a black pair of shoes with a black belt, and a brown pair of shoes with a black belt. You may feel like no one will notice—but actually, everyone will.
  8. Be confident.
    Don’t try to look like you’re in your 20s. You’re over 40 and you should definitely be proud of it! Wear clothing that is appropriate for your age and be confident in what you are wearing. A little confidence can go a long way.
