Does The Man In Your Life Need to Level Up His Style Game?
If the man in your life could do with a makeover, you might not know how to approach the subject.
After all, you don’t want to seem critical, or act like you want to change him. After all, you fell in love with him for who he is, not what he wears. But if he’s beginning to look a bit scruffy or rough round the edges, he might not have realised.
Sure, some people might that sounds a little shallow, but it’s not. Sometimes people don’t realise what they look like if clothes aren’t a priority in their lives, or they might just not care. But sometimes you do need to smarten up a bit, especially when it comes to things like work.
But if you just want to level him up in the style department, you can do it without making it a major issue.
Why not buy him a gift? A new shirt, a sweater, even a hat. Choose something that you’d like him to wear. If it’s not his typical style then don’t go to full on for the first attempt. If you go in gradually, he might not even notice you are giving him an undercover makeover. He’ll probably feel like he should wear it, after all you bought it especially! Superdry has some simple yet stylish designs that are a great starting point. When he does don your present, make you sure you tell him how fantastic he looks, and how much it suits him. Flattery can get you everywhere.
You could invite him somewhere he will be forced to dress up? Dinner in a smart restaurant, the theatre, a casino… all are good excuses to get your glad rags on. If you’ve made a special effort to organise such a special night then he’s bound to think about getting his best bib and tucker on. It’s a good excuse to go and buy yourself something new. After all, you need to look the part too!
Gradually take those clothes you don’t like disappear. If he leaves that horrid jumper at yours, hide it for a while until you’re safe to bin it. As things need repairing, make sure he replaces it with new stuff. And are sure that it’s much nicer than what he had before. Go shopping with hi, you can help make it easier for him. Be helpful and not overbearing. He’ll think you are doing him a favour.
Understand why he dresses the way he does. If he works on a building site, then it’s unreasonable to expect him to be suited and smartly booted every single day. If he dressed for comfort, don’t try and put him straight into stiff collars. You’re more likely to meet resistance and he may dress even worse just to spite you. You don’t want it to become a big deal; it’s not the be all and end all.
