Choosing the perfect outfit can sometimes feel tricky, rather like finding hen’s teeth. When men start their fashion journey, nobody tells them that there is a formula for looking good.

From surfing to sundowners
While some men would wear anything they want to the beach, it’s crucial to appear stylish when transitioning from surfing to going out for sundowners. Most people are utterly perplexed about how to proceed and pull off an appropriate outfit for either, let alone both, at once!
Keep it accessible by starting with a swimsuit that appears more like ordinary summer shorts, then layering with a tank top for the beach and a bright patterned cotton shirt for socializing at an outdoor bar. Wearing a button-down in dark blue helps disguise sweat marks and, with an excellent distracting design, is a beautiful alternative to the Hawaiian shirt if that’s not your style.

Keep your office-appropriate button-down freshly pressed with a wrinkle-resistant pair of black pants, providing a professional look throughout your busy day. Finish with a beautiful color-blocked jacket, which is a popular outerwear trend for men this season and ideal for any windy day, plus it’s a statement.
When it comes to a business bag, choose a pack that can hold a lot of stuff without seeming cluttered. Finish off your appearance with the plain white-leather sneakers you’re always wearing. Sporty and comfortable enough to wear all day, yet still appropriate for the workplace!
Finding the correct combinations of colors and accessories seems daunting for most people. But if you want to stand out of the crowd and be known as the man with style – rocking these basic combinations will elevate your appearance to the next level.
