But over the years, guys have learned the different ways to dress up just like the girls. Print on print, loud colors and stylish ensembles. Thus, giving the guys a lot of choices in terms of fashion.
But if you are one spendthrift guy and doesn't have much of a wardrobe, then here's a list that could help you spice things up without having to stash your cash. The items here are the most common yet stylish stuffs that can bring a spark to your look. It's a statement in itself and can bring any guy to the spotlight. Invest on these items and you are ready to be a star. So, shall we start?
It's definitely a must-have. Whether you are going to a formal party or event or even just a stroll in the park, nothing beats out the classiness a suit gives. Preferred colors are dark to silver gray. But now, trendy colors includes mustard and burgundy. Also, the type of fabric used can give it a boost. Try a flannel one or a wool for a change. Plus, go for other designs aside from the usual chalk lined ones.
How to wear it: For the corporate look, the classic coat and tie never fails to impress. But if you are going for a more casual look, pair with a v-neck shirt and some shorts and some suede shoes.
What's the time, you say? A watch is a man's must-have in fashion. It makes a simple look classy and elegant. But if you are more adventurous, colored watches are now available and easy to pair with your dress of choice. Go for a monochromatic ensemble or use the color blocking method. Be playful as a watch is your best statement.
How to wear it: Feeling classy? Use the classic silver watch. For a change, try a leather strap. If you are just on a normal casual day, colored watches are great!

2. Chino Pants
Go loco with colors. Play with them. One of the top pants used are Chino pants for their lightness and striking colors. Fave colors are khaki and tangerine. But now, bold colors like red, blue and even yellow are being used. Go away from the sophisticated look by shifting to a more playful and fun look.
