Style Advice 

Sweater Weather

If you want to take your look to the next level, add a sweater to the mix. It automatically adds texture to your outfit and a layer of warmth, which you are likely to need (even in Los Angeles) come February. 

Sadly, for a lot of men, blue jeans are about as colorful as their clothing choices get. I’m not by any means encouraging rainbow bright ensembles, but I believe every man should integrate a punch of color, a print or texture into every look. If you’re new to this, start with a solid colored sweater. You can build your looks around colors that complement your eyes or your complexion. If you don’t know what colors those are simply ask your girlfriend, she’ll know.

Use your imagination, but don’t let it run too wild. Every time you get dressed, pick a sweater that will make a statement, and then work from there. You don’t want too many prints competing; you want every part of your look to be complementary. For instance, if you are wearing a patterned sweater, stick with a crisp oxford shirt and maybe a polka-dot tie.

When you’re shopping for a new sweater remember that everything in your wardrobe needs to get along. Before you commit, ask yourself, will this color or that print match what I already own? Think of your wardrobe as a team: the more it works together, the stronger it will be.
