Patterns on Patterns

I find myself drawn to florals, flannels, paisley, and polka dots. I can’t help but be drawn to these classic patterns, as well as the less traditional ones, or the surprising pairings of two of these patterns together. I am especially tickled when I see men pairing these patterns and colors well. Why can’t they all dress like that? When it comes to dressing your man (or dressing yourself, male readers), don’t be afraid to go bold. It’s eye catching and effective. You’ll exude confidence and people will notice. Putting a little more into your wardrobe will pay off. And as a good friend once told me (and if he told me once, he told me a thousand times), if you look good, you feel good. 

He’s in the picture below, but take your pic! Whatever your type, we’ve got it. Checkers, stripes, flannel, paisley, solid. Classic denim, black jeans, colored denim, and shades of khaki. Keep in mind, I pulled this photo from MY friends. This is real life fashion, not an unrealistic runway image. And don’t they look good?


Don’t dress you man, but come to a compromise. I like a guy in purple, but let him pick which purple. I like a guy in a skinny tie, but let him pick the color. You might have to help him out with the combinations but if you can show him examples of what you think looks good (in ads, or on others if he doesn’t mind), he’ll be more confident in trying something new.
