60 Simple Outfit Upgrades For Men – Winter 2019 Edition

Call it a blessing, call it a curse, but I know this much about myself: I’m an over-thinker by nature. I take pride in going above and beyond. I’ve been called “extra” by friends, family, and co-workers more than once and, occasionally, that gets me in trouble.

When that happens, I’m reminded of a lesson my dad constantly preached in our house growing up, applying it to every tedious, procedural task, from yard work to algebra homework: “Keep it simple, stupid.”

In the words of my father, consider the KISS system. Don’t overthink it. Keep it simple, stupid.

It’s so easy to be extra and add layers to complexity to almost everything in life. But that’s how you get yourself in trouble, becoming a victim of your own perceived ingenuity: Experimenting with too many contrasting flavors in the kitchen can turn an nourishing homemade meal into a bland, unpalatable chore, destine for the waste basket. Mix all the colors together into the same paint can and everything just turns out gray.

The same goes for curating a personal aesthetic. Flash too hard with a neon tie or a bulky, cumbersome watch and you’ll come across like a clown, unless you have the confidence to truly own being that clown. Rather, just keep it simple, stupid. Simple outfits for men often come effortlessly, with cool upgrades to your look gradually procured over time. The swagger that comes from putting together a cool outfit is a marathon, not a sprint.

Think about putting together outfits for a personal style it like you would putting together furniture: Step-by-step, feeling more and more complete with each new item of clothing or accessory added to your wardrobe over time. Yes, it’s a chore at first. But after buying a great pair of premium jeans that you love or a watch that makes your work outfit pop, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment. As a man, it’s not hard to build a closet of simple and easy outfits, as long as it’s understood that you should be buying something you love to wear.

The shoes, watch, shirt, or suit don’t make the man. The man makes the man. But a couple simple style upgrades can nudge a man in the right direction when it comes to confidence.

Without further adieu, our specific men’s style tips: Here are 21 easy men’s outfit upgrades on what to buy to make your ‘fit stand out from the pack. These are timeless favorites from some of the best menswear brands out there, all aspiring for the same thing – For a man to look his very best so he can be at his best.
