Whether you like fashion or not, it’s a part of our daily life. Some people give lots of time to create their own fashion sense, some follow the trends and others just throw some things together. We here at B.M.M.O. Consulting like to help keep the consumer informed in all areas. Today’s post will be in the area of fashion. There are a few items that every man and every woman should have in their possession. Keep reading to find out what those items are.
White Cotton Button-Downs – It is a must that you have this item in your wardrobe and in multiple styles. You want to keep it sparkling white, so don’t over bleach. The white button-down can be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with jeans and still look stylish.
Add Some Color – It is good to have your neutral colors, black, brown and navy, but add some pizzazz to your wardrobe by accessorizing with bright colors. It just might brighten you day!
Buy in Multiples – If you find that one dress or great fitting pant, buy multiples. When you find something that fits you well, buy a few to keep your style flowing.
Scarves Add a Special Touch – Adding a scarf to any outfit gives it that special touch. It spices up a suit and adds character to a t-shirt and jeans. Check out The B.A.F.F.L.E.D Blog for a few options on how to wear your scarf.
Perfect Fit Jeans – Jeans should never create a baggy look for your back side. If your jeans do this, throw them away and head to the mall for a new pair. Find jeans that have some lycra in them, they are more apt to fit to your body’s shape.
Leopard – The leopard print is needed in every woman’s wardrobe. This print is timeless, adds a sexy touch to any outfit and will always look glamorous regardless of how it is worn.
Starched Clean Shirt – A starched white shirt is an item every man should have. This starched shirt sets the stage for the entire outfit. Most importantly, make sure the sleeves fit, not too long, but definitely not too short.
Black Suit – This clothing piece is versatile, it comes in handy in any setting, church, job interview and funeral, and it’s a staple in every man’s closet. A good fit is very important though, no baggy or too short pants, spend the money and get them hemmed properly.
The Shoe – Shoes come in a variety of styles (oxford, monk strap and wingtip) just to name a few. Black and brown are pretty standard, but what’s most important is that they are shined. Gentlemen, dusty shoes are just not a good look.
Cufflinks – This quick and easy accessory adds character to any man’s style. With one lift of the wrist, you become a standout to the crowd.
Grooming – Hair cut, clean nails, moisturized hands and a good scent complete the look and let others know that you are a man about your business. Cologne can be tricky, it can’t be overpowering, it has to suite your body; less is more.
Sweater Variety - In the fall and winter season sweaters become a necessity. It’s important that you get them in different colors, styles and materials. This way you can be prepared regardless of the occasion.
These are just a few of the fashion necessities we think every man and woman should have. Feel free to comment and add any others you have. B.M.M.O. Consulting wants to make sure we keep you informed on all the information consumers need to know, and with fall in full bloom, it was perfect timing to add some fashion insights.
