When it comes to fashion in New York City, the rules are always changing. What is in vogue one day will be completely out of style the next day. However, this doesn’t just apply to women. Men have to deal with trends that are constantly changing as well. For men who shun the hipster look and prefer to go business casual, finding ways to breathe new life into that same old business professional look can be stressful. However, it can be done if you know the right tips and tricks. Here are some tips on achieving the perfect business casual look in NYC.
A Classic Suit Always Works
Whether you’re going to the office or a professional event, a classic suit always works. Remember, it’s always better to be overdressed than it is to be under-dressed. Invest in suits and have them tailored to fit your shape to ensure that you always have the right look on hand.
Don’t Underestimate The Importance of Tailoring
Whether you’re wearing a strong, classic suit or a more casual look, never underestimate the importance of tailoring. A good tailor can take a basic ensemble and turn it into something that really accentuates your shape and look.
Ignore Flashy Trends
If you’re going for the business casual look, ignore really flashy trends. They may be hip with the younger crowd, but they’ll most likely just make you look silly. Instead, only follow trends if they work well with the classic look that you are trying to achieve.
Invest In a Good Timepiece
Watches may seem old-fashioned, but they are truly what finishes off any great ensemble. Don’t just purchase a watch for the sake of purchasing a watch, however. Save your money and invest in a solid piece that will last the test of time.
Pay Attention To Photos
Women analyze their selfies to see what looks are working and which ones aren’t, but men don’t always do the same. Look at pictures of yourself to get an idea of what looks work on you and which ones you really ought to kick to the curb.
Staying hip in New York City can be stressful. However, if you follow these tips, you’ll find that it’s a little bit easier to keep your fashion game on point. Remember, when in doubt, always go for what’s classic when you’re trying to get that perfect business casual look.
