If you’re the kind of girl who is fashion mad, then style is always going to be a key part of your life. Now, if you have a partner, they are also going to be an essential part of your life. While you love your partner and all his cute quirks, his strange fashion sense might not be one of them. You don’t love him any less because he lacks a sense of style, it’s just that you would love to help him reach his full fashion potential with a style makeover.
Does your partner lack a sense of style? If so, you might be keen to do something about how he dresses and help him to become a more style concious individual. The question is, of course, how can you go about doing that without offending him? The key to success here is being smart about how you go about it.
Ask your partner (casually) where his sense of style comes from – find out why he dresses like he does. He might have styled his look on his favourite TV star or band or it could just be that, like many men, he dresses for comfort. If this is the case, what you need to do is show your man that he can easily achieve the perfect combination of both style and comfort, it’s just about teaching him how to edit his sense of style and showing him that style and comfort can go together.
Say he lives in sweatpants, what you want to do is get him to try on a pair of stretchy skinny jeans that fit well and are comfortable. These can be just as comfortable to wear as sweats and look far smarter. While skinny cuts are on trend this season, for bulkier men, a slim cut can be a slightly better choice.
Surprise him with some new clothes
A lot of guys don’t like to show for themselves, so it might be down to you to surprise him with some new clothing. If you know his size, you can easily shop for him. There are plenty of clothing stores, like John Henric, for instance, that offer a wide selection of clothing that comes in a range of styles designed to perfectly fit any size and shape. So whatever your man’s size and height, you should be able to find him some more stylish pieces.
When you surprise him, simply tell him that you saw the item and just new it would look incredible on him, and so, had to buy it. If he’s not sure about the piece, ask him to try it on and see how it looks – the chances are that once it is on, he’ll love it.
Encourage him to get a new haircut
If your man has worn the same hairstyle for years, now is the ideal time to change that. Maybe the hairstyle he has just isn’t all that smart, and looks a little messy. Get him to have his hair cut into a more polished and on-trend style. Create a Pinterest moodboard of ideas and ask him to pick a cut that he would like to try, and see which he goes for.
You will both be amazed by how much difference a new hairstyle can make to your partner’s appearance. It’s incredible how much of a change a new haircut can make to how fashionable and on trend a person looks.
There you have it, a guide to everything that you need to know about giving your partner a style makeover.
