Five essentials for the post-modern man

Published

on

The season of warmth, joy and good cheer is here. While everyone is under pressure trying to figure out how and where to celebrate festive season, Fashion Boulevard has one major idea for the post-modern man. Celebrate the art of manliness this December by gifting yourself with essentials you have been overlooking all year. 

Being a man, especially if you are in your twenties and thirties, looking good is absolutely everything and here we are going to explore some essentials needed to make an impression that will help score you a date this season; or even better, enhance your confidence.

When men have a goal of looking good and dressing better, they look up at all latest trends and they end up looking messy because they assume every piece of clothing in their body needs to stand out. That is wrong. Not every item in your outfit needs to grab attention. The secret is playing with the details. A well put-together look will leave different impressions with an amalgamation of super-versatile essentials. Here are the supporting pieces to help keep your clothes anchored.

1. Wrist Watches
A stylish, luxury wrist watch will make you feel good any day. Of course not every man can afford Rolex or omega watches, but funky and sleek does not need to be expensive. There are thousands of outlets with super sleek and affordable stylish watches that’ll noticeably add pep to your appearance. A wrist watch is more than a time-keeper; it is a symbol of style and class.
2. Belts
Accentuate your look with a polished belt that will ultimately bring your outfit together. In addition to creating a demarcation line between your legs and body, belts provide a highlight to a coordinated outfit and they demonstrate who you are as man. Go for a varied collection and make your own statement.
3. Sunglasses
A perfect pair of sunglasses is an integral part of every modern man’s wardrobe. They come in different styles and shapes. Sunglasses are not meant only for protection from the sun. They define a face and make you look cool and relevant.
4. Bags
Trendy and manly bags are what every man should have in their wardrobes. These include travel bags, gym bags and gadget bags. There is no point in using a gym bag for travel. That is too disrespectful to the bag itself.
5. Colognes
Colognes help in boosting a man’s confidence. Women also appreciate men who smell good. For a sensational experience, you must have different colognes for specific occasions. As a rule, people should only be able to smell you when they step inside your own personal “scent circle”, which is about arm’s length. In short, know your limit when applying cologne. A little makes you sexier, more confident. A lot makes you appear loud.
