In the last Style Inspiration we mentioned rather typical advice men seeking to dress better get: “oh you know, just get a blazer with shirt, tighter jeans and some good shoes” and we also learned that general advice like this can lead to very mediocre results.
So today we’ll check one example of rocking this look, discuss how to look sexy in a blazer and maybe even build a similar outfit for ourselves.
Making Shirt + Blazer Work For You
The reason why so many guys like this look is because it offers a classy and high status feel while staying casual. In many ways it’s the best of both worlds. Furthermore, by simple acts of adding accessories or just rolling up the sleeves we can add edginess to the overall look.
This style can also look great on most body compositions and be appropriate for most settings and venues.
So what’s the problem and where’s the danger?
First and foremost, if you look around on a night out, every other better dressed guy is rocking some variation of this outfit so you’re not standing out as much as you think.
Classy / High status feel also has its danger because by default you’re falling into “I should give him my phone number and go on a date” category as opposed to “I want to take him home tonight” one. For this we need to make sure to add “counter-nice” details.
