Believe us when we say that men's fashion is just as interesting as women's. In fact, some of the most prominent trends and pieces we love now were once derived from their style. The best example, you ask? Pants. And to this day, we continue to take bits from men's fashion and make them our own. So you see, even if you're a true blue 'girly-girl', there's really no good reason to snub menswear because it has a lot to offer us. Ahead are some of the style tips from men's fashion that you should take note of. 


Keep a white, button-down shirt in your wardrobe



Have you ever noticed that every man in your life has a button-down shirt? That's because it's such a versatile piece that you can style in countless ways. It can work both in formal and casual situations, depending on how you wear it. Need some easy style inspiration? Take a cue from fashion blogger Aimee Song and match a crisp, button-down shirt with a pair of wide-leg slacks and casual sandals for a relaxed chic and sleek look. 


Be sporty without looking sloppy



When it comes to fashion, most men prefer fuss-free and comfortable pieces. Maybe that's why athleisure was such a hit in menswear even before it became mainstream. Hoodie, track pants and sneakers are some of the must-have favourites in men's fashion. If you also want to try this style but don't want to look sloppy, all you have to do is pair athleisure pieces like track pants with elegant, structured clothing like a button-down shirt or a sophisticated sweater.


No twinning



Most men aren't really into the matchy-matchy style and we can't blame them for not wanting to lose their individuality. Don't get us wrong, we think twinning is totally fun but there are more creative ways to dress in a complementary manner than wearing the same skirt as your bestie or donning couple shirts with bae. For instance, you can sport complementary colour palettes for a cohesive look. 


Invest in good tux and blazers



You think wearing tuxedos is exclusive to men? Not quite! In 1966, Yves Saint Laurent changed the game when he introduced the iconic Le Smoking tuxedo suit for women who wanted to look glamorous and powerful, proving once and for all that women can also pull off this traditionally masculine piece. To get the right fit for a tuxedo, it's best to go to a professional tailor. For more casual occasions, you should also invest in good blazers that more or less gives off the same authoritative vibe as a tuxedo.



Stock up on functional accessories



While we love a good arm candy, sometimes we have a tendency to go overboard in accessorising. Cut off the excess and focus on investing in basic, functional accessories like watches, sunglasses and belts. You will not only be kinder to your wallet but you'll also learn how to make the most out of what you already own. In some cases, less truly is more.


Next, check out these tips on how to make your outfits look more flattering.
