To be a fashionable boy, start by comparing your current wardrobe to the trendy men’s fashions you’d like to mimic. You can look at celebrities you like for style cues, read blogs and magazines devoted to style, or simply search “men’s style tips” online. Then, donate or sell clothes that don’t fit, that you don’t wear, or that don’t flatter you as well as they could. For example, if you’re bigger you can opt for vertical stripes over horizontal ones, because vertical stripes draw the eyes downward and make you look slimmer. Next, organize a shopping trip to get staples like an all-occasion pair of jeans and a pair of chinos. You can also buy some nice pieces from your favorite brands or stores. This will make mixing and matching your old and new clothes to create fashionable outfits easy! Finally, round out your wardrobe with accessories like a scarf, belt, or watch. Just remember, don’t change who you are for the sake of being fashionable or cool. For tips on how to pair shoes with your outfits, read on.
