Look 1: Relaxed in Joggers
Step 1: Pick Out Some Joggers
If you don’t own joggers, you need to change that. Joggers are probably the most comfortable trend we’ve seen emerge for men in a while, and we’d be crazy not to get behind it. We recommend going for a neutral pair in grey or white that will look good with everything. Pick a pair that works with your personality and style.
Step 2: Layer Up
Joggers aren’t necessarily a statement piece—unless you’re choosing a pair in bright yellow—but they do have a unique silhouette. For that reason, we recommend bulking it up on the top with a heavier jacket—your basic motorcycle jacket or aviator jacket will do. The thickness on top will complement the bottom half well and keep the overall look leaning toward masculine and effortless.
Look 2: Bold Patterns
Step 1: Decide on Your Jacket
If you’re an individual with multiple leather jackets (which we recommend for every modern man), your first step is to decide which jacket you’ll be wearing. This look is appropriate for black, brown, white, or even colored jackets, so you have plenty of options! Remember that the shirt in this look is going to be your focal point, so go for something a little more understated and streamlined. Racer or moto jackets are going to complement your button-up more than a heavy biker jacket. Feel free to experiment with different jackets and different looks.
Step 2: Choose a Shirt You Feel Good In
Patterns on clothing often scare guys. More accustomed to keeping things neutral and simple, diving into bright colors is understandably intimidating. If you don’t feel comfortable going for something really eye-catching, go for something subtler. Start with a simple black and white striped shirt, a French style that always wins and looks great with a standard black leather jacket. Move up to flannels after that, and then keep on going to bolder styles.
Now, if you prefer bright colors and patterns anyway, we have some more daring options for you. Seeing guys in black-and-white floral is a stylish and daring look that complements the ruggedness of leather. Or, go for solid colors in green or blue featuring bright, simple patterns. Choose something that complements the jacket you chose, that you feel confident in.
Step 3: Finish Up
No look is complete with just a leather jacket and a shirt, no matter how flashy. Complete your look by keeping the rest of your look fashionable, but simple. We strongly recommend a slim pair of pants that keeps the look streamlined, as well as a pair of shoes similar in color to your jacket.
Lastly, we urge you to take this opportunity to accessorize. Modern men have no qualms adding subtle touches in the form of simple jewelry, hats, or sunglasses to complete a look. This outfit is guaranteed to draw attention and make you look like you just stepped off the runway.
