Looking good is something that has always been important to us throughout the years, we even talk about certain styles being linked to decades throughout time. With ever-changing fashion, it’s quite difficult to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not, especially for the modern man. There are programs on television that have the sole aim to improve the way we dress which help but there are still some tragic decisions happening on a daily basis. Looking good used to come with the association that you’ll need to dress smart, or wear designer clothes, but that’s not the case anymore.
In 2020 the best trend to go for is to relax and go for the more casual style, here are some tips to make sure you look great when going for the casual style.
Get Something That Fits
The main issue when it comes to clothes is how they fit an individual’s body shape. You’ll be able to sort out the majority of your fashion issues just by getting clothes that fit, so that begs the question, how do I find out what fits me well? The answer to that cannot be written in words, but by being seen in the mirror. When clothes don’t really fit you they will throw your perceived body proportion out. Due to the excess fabric on larger clothes, you’ll find that you look sloppy and even fatter and shorter than you are. Us blokes tend to wear clothes that are comfy which usually means too big, and whilst this style can be pulled off by a very select few it’s not something we should be trying every day.
Let’s take the white T-shirt, for example, there are thousands of different styles of white tee’s and the majority of them will make you look ridiculous. However, there will be a few styles of plain white T-shirts that when combined with jeans, will make you look amazing. Not only is this a great basis for an outfit, but it’s a style in itself.

The staple of the casual style, especially in 2020 is the humble jean. Like most items of clothing, there are a fair few to choose from, however, this is a really important decision and will change the look of your entire outfit. In order to remain casual but at the same time look great there are a few rules you’ll have to follow.
Firstly, I would say avoid any style of jeans that is ripped or has too much of a stressed look. This style is more for the younger male and won’t look good on anyone over the age of 30. Keep your jeans intact and don’t choose anything out of the ordinary.
Secondly, I would avoid anything that is overly baggy. Jeans should reach the bottom of your leg comfortably and not pool around the ankle. Not only that but they should stay up either by themselves or with the help of a belt, you don’t want to be pulling them up every 5 minutes.
Lastly, keep them simple. You don’t need any flashy or large logos on the backside pockets, and you don’t need to play around with any patterns. Keep it simple and the casual style will flow.
When it comes to choosing your style of shirt or trousers, to keep it casual go for something that has been around for years. Certain styles will stand the test of time and are now considered timeless. The boot cut jean has been around for goodness knows how long and is still around for a reason, it looks great.
The Raglan style is another that has been around for years and for good reason. The Raglan tee is a classic and took over the world of baseball pretty early on, but it has actually been around for much longer than you think. What if I were to tell you that this classic style dates back to the French Revolution? I’m sure you’d be surprised, find out more here about why Napoleon was involved in the creation of the Raglan style. If something has been around since the early 1800s and is still popular now, you know it oozes style.
Keeping it simple with your fashion choices is going to help you enormously when looking for stylish outfits. Don’t go too crazy and stick to calm mutual colors, you’ll never see a celebrity of a certain age dressing in bright garish colors. Following this, make sure you get clothes that fit well, and not too tight. Well-fitting clothes will make you appear slimmer and much more stylish, and that’s before people have actually looked at what you’re wearing. Keep calm and keep it simple, the casual outfits will flow.
