Unless you get some sound men’s fashion advice chances are that you may not always dress according to the latest trends or even for a particular occasion. Some people can get confused by all the choices available to them in regard to various dressing factors including styles, colors, and fabrics. This in turn will, unless they get some useful advice, lead to dressing in a most unfashionable and inappropriate manner.
At the age of forty, a man’s body shape and size will have changed from his younger years and his hair as well as skin too will have undergone many changes. So, it pays to learn how to dress in a manner that complements rather than retards your looks. The first piece of advice that a man in his forties must pay heed to is that they should not dress in a manner that will give the impression that you have borrowed your son’s clothes.
So, rather than sticking with trendy clothes that will make people think that you are still hanging onto your youth you should try and stick to wearing classic (but not boring) clothes. Of course, men’s fashion and lifestyles continue to change and so this aspect too needs to be taken into account when choosing your clothes.
The important thing is that you should dress to suit your current lifestyle rather than trying to keep up with the times.
If for example, you are out on the beach in Mexico then wearing a linen suit makes good sense. But, the same kind of suit would be highly inappropriate if you were in Las Vegas even though temperatures will still be in the nineties. The rule is that a linen suit is ideal when worn in tropical conditions and not anywhere else.
The best piece of men’s fashion advice that you can get is that you need to look beyond wearing just the same old stuffy navy woolen suits everywhere. Though you may be tempted to wear such suits for important occasions such as for a funeral or even a wedding you can do better by opting for a cotton suit.
Remember also that even if your body is perfectly shaped and you have a six-pack abdomen and a sprightly pair of buttocks you need to still dress according to your age. So, give up wearing the clothes you wore when you were in your twenties and thirties and get into the groove of wearing clothes that are appropriate for someone in their forties.
