Being Dapper: An Easy to Achieve Look

Only those who are fashion forward will know what the dapper style looks like, but for those who do not, it essentially requires you to combine pieces of your wardrobe to get a stylish yet classic look. For men, this often means looking like a gentleman in a more formal fitted look. What makes the style so popular is that it is rather simple to achieve. All that you require is clothing that suits your skin tone, that is coordinated and that is fitted. Items such as: tailored suits, button down shirts, slim waisted jackets, closed top shoes, and waistcoats will do the trick.

How to Achieve that Dapper Style

First off, you are going to require dapper men’s suits that flatter your skin tone. You are going to want a three buttoned jacket if you want a super slim look, or a two-buttoned jacket if you want a looser looking fit. Choose one that works best for your physique and then coordinate the suit in a dark or light grey colour with black slacks. Then pair the suit with a vest of the same pattern, that is solid in colour.  Once you have these pieces, you can choose a shirt that coordinates with the suit. This is where you can have a lot of fun and show off your personality, by choosing patterned shirts, or solid ones. Finally you are going to want to pick out a tie that goes well with your shirt choice. If you want to take it a step further, you can add in accessories such as tie clips, cuff links or a sleek watch.

What makes this look great is that you can make it as formal or as casual as you want. The main key to looking dapper is to have a set of clothing combinations that give you a professional look. You could use button down long sleeve shirts with trousers and black slacks for a more casual look, or wear a dress shirt with a waistcoat and trousers.
