Men’s fashion over 50
Men fashion over 50 isnt a challenge anymore. Don’t be one of those men, who lets their style slide when they hit 50. Age is just a number, but we can’t have you dress like a teenager. You have to find the right style for you, and we will guide you through this transitioning process. We’ve prepared some dos and don’ts, as well as some must-have items, that surely will elevate your look and help you get recognized for your style.
Let’s start the journey to your great fashion style by throwing away the clothes that don’t fit you. You might want to keep your favorite jeans and shirts, but if it’s been a few years since they last fit you, it’s better to put them away. Make sure the clothes you leave in your wardrobe not only look good, but you are able to put them on easily. That way you will be comfortable and feel good about it. And when you feel good, you also radiate that energy and look good.
To upgrade your look, you don’t need to spend a lot of money. It doesn’t take that much, so you shouldn’t worry – a new jacket and something different than plain blue jeans will do the trick. To make your new look even more appealing, you can look for some nice accessories (which also don’t need to be expensive), but we will get into that a little bit later.
Casual in your 50s
One very important thing is not to get your work clothes confused with your “casual clothes”. You have to make a difference between them. Your casual clothes are the ones that truly express your taste and attitude. But don’t assume that you don’t have to try at all with casual clothing. Just because it’s casual, and you are out of the office, it doesn’t mean you should look like you don’t care. Furthermore, if you look like you don’t care, you won’t feel as good, which is very important in finding your style.
Feeling comfortable in your clothes will help you go about your day without unnecessary irritations. Imagine this scenario: you read online about these very stylish shoes, but they hurt your feet all day, so you don’t feel the best, nor look like it after a whole day of suffering. The same goes for very small for your size clothing items, that don’t let you breathe. Now that we’ve talked about the importance of fitting your clothes right, let’s see what makes a good and comfortable look.
For more dressy occasions, you could always put on a nice fitted suit, or pants and a long coat, which will make your look very classy. For less special occasions, pants and simple, but elegant shirts like a turtleneck or a rollneck will do the job.
As you can see, the key is having simple, but stylish options.
Here is an example of that exact thing – worn by Eric Rutherford:
As we can see, achieving a look that good isn’t at all hard, even on a budget. There are many well-dressed celebrities, which you can use for reference when shopping for your new clothes, but realistically speaking, you need to find your style, and if that isn’t it – that’s okay too. But if you get inspired by these or other photos of well-dressed men, don’t give up because of the price tag of the clothes they are wearing. You could always find very similar products for much cheaper and still achieve the look.
5 items you need, to get started on your new look
Now that we have gone over the basics, let’s take a look at a few items you will need to find to get started on your stylish journey. The key to this is getting a couple of must-have pieces, pants for example, and a few shirts and jackets, which can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits. Pairing them with different accessories like scarfs, watches, and more will create a great number of outfits you can choose from, depending on the setting.
- The Perfect Pants
You will need to find at least a few pairs of very nice pants and get them in different colors. Aim for the neutrals, because they can be paired very easily with various sweaters and shirts.
- Turtlenecks and Sweaters
Pairing nice pants with a great turtleneck will make you look more sophisticated instantly. You can get them in any color you like, and they will go perfectly with neutral pants.
When looking for shoes to go with your outfit, it’s always best to have at least a few options, that can go with a lot of things. The right ones can be dressed-up or dressed-down, depending on the look you are going for, but it depends on what you feel most comfortable in. You will need some black boots for the winter (since they look good with everything), and some sneakers for the hot summer days. Smart and casual shoes are also a must-have item. Pair them with the right pants and you will get an elegant look.
You can’t go anywhere without a nice warm jacket or coat. Again, aim for neutral colors, so that they look good with most of your outfits. A leather jacket will also look great with a lot of things, so if you don’t have one yet, consider changing that soon!
When we want to take our outfit to the next level, accessories are the right way to go, and they’re not for women only. You can never go wrong with a classic, beautiful-looking watch, which emphasizes your style. Adding a scarf for fall and winter, while wearing a long coat will look very elegant as well. Adding good quality jewelry like rings, wristbands, and more can take your outfit to its fullest, but they aren’t a necessity. After all, wearing what makes you feel good is the best advice you can get.
We hope that with this list of basics we have made the process of finding the right items, that will get you started on your great look, easier and more pleasant. Remember: whatever you buy, looking good comes from the inside too – when you feel good in what you’re wearing, you look even better!
