Looking a new look for your man?
If you want to elevate the wardrobe of your casual man, you need to give him a reason why he needs to spruce up his look. You need to invite him somewhere where he has to dress up then when he’s sporting his new look you compliment, compliment and compliment. It always works! Read more to find out five ways to get your other half to dress better.
1. Get to know why they dress the way they do.
Unless your other half has a very particular style, chances are he doesn’t care or know any better. Many guys dress for comfort and not for style on a daily basis. What you need to do is take them shopping and choose them an outfit with their input.
2. Surprise him with the clothing you like
You know, those gifts that are for him but they’re really for you. Tell him how you saw it, loved it and thought it would look great. Ask him to try it on!
3. Offer words of encouragement
Encouragement and flattery is the key. When he finally finds something he likes and you like you need encourage him and say “Oh my goodness, I can’t believe how handsome you look, those jeans are so flattering.” Job done!
4. Invite him somewhere where he has to dress up
If you want him to look good, give him a reason to dress up and put on a shirt and jeans or a pair of trousers. It doesn’t have to be posh but it can just be smart/casual.
5. Slowly get rid of the clothes you both don’t like.
Spring cleaning has never felt better! Help your other half go through their wardrobe and donate clothing that no longer fits them and replace the items you think he could do better with before you cause too much drama!
