Fashion Tips for Men Over 40

Don’t faux a style that doesn’t belong to your generation. All you need to do is improvise your wardrobe with comfortable, yet gentleman-like clothes. In fact, most of the clothes from your thirties can easily transit to your 40s’ wardrobe.
Don’t follow fashion fads. Fashion trends flicker with every season, but style is what remains. For instance, you would not wear tees that are worn by teens, just because they are in. Even if your favorite fashion magazine tells you that skinny jeans are in trend, you’re not gonna wear them! You have to think of something that is timeless and mature. And in fact, many of you would already have your styles; you just need to polish your equation of styling.
Prefer Quality to Quantity. Choose fabrics that are 100% cotton, wool, linen, etc. for a neat, sturdy look.
Keep it simple and classy! Don’t jam your closet with flashy ties, glittery cufflinks, and shimmery waistcoats. Style your age. Decent is the word.
Carry a clean-shaven and well-groomed look. Well, just for your info, women prefer clean-shaven men.
We are all set to get you a classic wardrobe, that showcases the man you are on the inside.
Embrace the ‘Gentleman’ Look
Dress your age. Jeans and casuals are not from our first picks. Embrace the urban gentlemanly attitude. Pick well-tailored suits. The fabric and the fit of the suit is the most important. Fitted suits would make you look slimmer (and younger). A black jacket and white dress shirt makes a legendary fashion statement.
Grab Slim-fit Oxford Shirts and Trousers!
Comfort and maturity―the key to styling elegantly in 40s. Cotton or linen trousers would fit the bill. Showcase the clean and modern look with straight trousers, and fitted-shirts. Don’t get too colorful while picking shirts, ’cause this will give the appearance that you’re trying hard.
Snatch Sexy Sweaters
Cashmere sweaters add a luxurious casual appeal to the attire. Pick buttoned sweater vests, or V-neck sweaters, something that compliments well on your regular wear, and carry a fresh, relaxed look.
Go Trench with Trenchcoats
Trenches and overcoats add depth to your attire. Get a piece that fits you perfectly, and gives you the slimmer, taller appearance.
Winters are Seasonal, Scarves aren’t!
A pair of leather gloves with a lissom fit can never cease looking stylish. Woolen gloves also qualify the comfort matrix, but should be worn if season allows you to. Worn with a sweater or an overcoat, a pair of gloves can lend a sophisticated look. To add a pop to your attire, accessorize with a scarf.
Neck Ties. Bow ties. Cufflinks.
To separate you from the office lot, make it a point to accessorize your outfit with ties and cufflinks. Don’t pick jazzy colors. Go for silk ties, textured or patterned can pass out, but remember to keep it elegant. Play it safe with blue, black, and brown.
You don’t just need to wear a watch on suits, you also need to wear it when you’re not in your suits―modern and minimalist. If you’re going with the no-jacket-look, a leather belt is a must!
Woo the Masses with the Right Sunglasses
Find the right pair of sunglasses considering your face shape, and the age. Keep away from luster and glaze. Get a real pair!
Leave Colorful Sneakers for Teens
Well, nothing can beat a pair of black lace-up shoes in formal association, but you could try grays and browns. We suggest to always go for pointed shoes that impart a slimmer sooth. To keep on the smart-casual line, a pair of brogues or loafers will do. Camel and beige are newer colors to try, which will add a sporty pop to your outfit.
The Final Formal Look!
The Final Casual Look!
Decide your outfit based on temperature, location, and the event. Don’t mix casual wear with business wear. When working with casual shorts, be careful on how much you need to expose your knees. Though it may be your favorite suit, you need not wear it on casual evenings.
A common mistake that men often do is moving around in boyish haircuts. Get away with the juvenile look. You need to get something that is more respectable and manly.
