Top 10 Style Tips for Men in 2020 | How to Dress Better
These 10 style tips will help you get one step closer to reaching your goals
Everyone knows that how you dress impacts the jobs you get, the people you meet, and the goals you accomplish.
Rather than brushing it off as something unimportant, putting a little effort into your wardrobe can make a big difference in your life.
Since you’re here, you already know that. That’s why we’ll get straight into our Top 10 Style Tips for Men in 2020.
- A black leather jacket goes with anything.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a black leather jacket. It will elevate your look and is a great addition to pretty much any outfit.
Make sure to get a high quality leather jacket so that it can last for years to come. This is better for your look, wallet, and the environment!
Being able to use the same piece for years reduces resources used and is better than needing to replace a cheap jacket you get every year.
- Balance is key.
Just like everything else in life, you always want to aim for balance in your outfits.
Offset a bright shirt with darker jeans and black shoes. Wear pants that match your jacket but not your shirt.
You really just want to be able to look at your outfit and see that it’s balanced. You don’t have all the color and texture in one place, but it’s placed in a way to create a pleasing and cohesive look.
- Avoid wearing the same color head to toe.
Unless the color you’re wearing is black, you’re better off combining different colors.
If you try to wear the same color head to toe, the likelihood is that each piece will be a slightly different hue of the same color and you’ll just end up looking like a mismatched collage. Unless you’re an expert, avoid this style of dressing.
The color wheel is your best friend when it comes to combining colors, especially if you’re a beginner.
This is the triadic color scheme. With this color wheel, any combination of three colors that forms an equilateral triangle is a safe color combination.
Relating back to balance, these colors should be balanced well throughout your outfit. Each piece does not have to have all three colors, but simply introduce the 3 colors somewhere in your outfit.
- A nice pair of blue jeans should be a staple in your closet.
Reread this one. NICE blue jeans should be a staple in your closet. Don’t wear dad or boot cut jeans, save that for your grandfather.
Jeans should be tapered, not tight, and follow the shape of your leg with a little bit of give. That way you’ll still be comfortable while looking put together and on trend.
- Wear dark socks with dark shoes, and white with white.
We cannot stress this enough! Wearing black socks with the shoes above would ruin the look.
Wearing the right color socks with the right shoes keeps the flow of your outfit and makes it much nicer to look at.
Contrasting black socks with white shoes introduces a break in your line of vision, causing it to be less appealing and ultimately distracting from the rest of your clothes.
This is a simple fix that is often overlooked. Don’t let it trip you up.
- Get clothes that fit your body.
When you buy clothes, make sure that they follow the shape of your body. Don’t buy overly baggy clothing.
It makes it look like you’re not trying and really changes a look for the worse.
Think about celebrities and men who are your style inspirations. James Bond never wears baggy clothing and accordingly, he’s always fashionable and looks like a grown man.
If you have any items in your closet you really love, just go get them altered. It’s simple and painless, and believe us, it’s worth it.
- Iron your clothes, wrinkly is not in fashion.
If you don’t know how to iron your clothes, get a steamer or pick up a spray from the store. You won’t get as clean or tight of a press, but it can still make all the difference.
You can even get away with wearing a t-shirt to a bar if you iron it. It will truly transform your clothes and make you look like you spent an hour getting ready instead of the 10 minutes you always do.
- Pay attention to styles you like and learn from them.
Do you like the preppy look? Prefer streetwear? Want to look like you just stepped off the runway?
Whatever your style is, pay more attention to people online and in your life who have that style. Learn from them by noticing the details of what they wear, how they wear it, and how their clothes fit.
Don’t pay attention to the brand they’re wearing. You don’t need to spend tons of money to buy designer clothes or wear the trendiest brand in order to look good.
You can keep up with the trends and grow into your unique style by analyzing the fashion that you are drawn to.
- Clean out your wallet and slim it down.
Another sure fire way to ruin an outfit is by having your pocket filled with a giant wallet that can’t even fold in half anymore.
It’s distracting and can be avoided by keeping your wallet organized and clean. It will make it easier to pay for things too since you’re not scrambling to find that one card!
- Make sure your clothes are clean!
Again, this seems like a given. But a lot of men fall into the trap of wearing the same pair of jeans for 2 weeks without realizing they’re stained and worn out from 2 weeks of daily wear.
Cleaning your clothes and using high quality detergents will keep the colors vibrant and extend the life of your clothes.

Our clothing line, which is all designed in-house and manufactured in Portugal from European textiles, has indicators on the labels to show which items of clothing work together.
Any items from our initial red or blue collections that have the same designation on the label (e.g. "red" or "blue") are designed and hand-picked to work well with any other item in the collection. For example, if a jacket, t-shirt, and pair of shorts are all "blue" label, you can throw them on knowing that they will look great.
We take the guesswork out of dressing. Remember that dressing well is a skill, and one that takes tremendous work. Let us do the work for you.
