Making Sure Your Look Keeps With the Times
Fashion moves fast, so it’s not all too surprising that many of us feel lost when it comes to knowing how to style ourselves. While we don’t want to fall behind the times, we also don’t want to invest huge amounts of time or effort into pieces or looks that will quickly fall off trend. But not to worry. There are simple ways to ensure that your look is eye-catching in the right way. Here are a couple of options to consider.
Chances are that you already have your own distinct style when it comes to your wardrobe. This is important, as while fashion constantly changes, style lasts forever. If you have your basics and your signature items, you don’t have to worry about falling off trend. You can subtly keep your look up-to-date, however, by incorporating on-trend accessories into your outfits. Take a look at some of the scarves, pocket squares, bracelets, and belts at johnhenric.com. These will add a fresh take to your usual ensemble!
Try Out Our Facial Hair
One aspect of your appearance that you can easily change at a minimal cost is your facial hair. At the moment, the clean-shaven look has definitely taken a dip in popularity. Nowadays more and more men are opting to grow out their facial hair into all sorts of shapes and styles. Here are a couple of styles you might want to try out.
If you’re looking to replicate the look of three days’ worth of stubble, you don’t necessarily have to shave every three days and wait for the results. This look can easily be achieved every day. This look is a closely trimmed beard that shows your ability to grow thick facial hair without allowing it to catch crumbs and overheat your face. It’s a scruffy look, perfect for the casual and happy go lucky kind of guy. It also adds an air of rugged masculinity. This is one of the most simple looks to achiever. If you’re growing into it, it’ll come naturally. If you’re trimming down into it, use a beard trimmer with a short comb attachment. If your beard is relatively long, you might want to trim down in stages to avoid clogging of the device. Then shape your beard outline by removing the comb attachment.
The lumberjack is a traditional, full beard. This look will require patience, especially if your facial hair is slow growing, but styling-wise, it’s pretty simple to achieve. Allow your beard to grow. As it begins to reach a substantial length, it’s time to start shaping it. Trim the hair around your cheekbones for a clean, straight look. Use different trimmer guards to graduate the length of the beard, from shortest at the cheekbones to the longest at the bottom. Remember that the longer your facial hair the more cleaning and conditioning it will need – you should definitely consider investing in specialist beard washes, balms, and oils.
Incorporating these tips into your lifestyle and regime will ensure that you’re up to date and look stylish and suave!
