      I recently did a photo session with some of the most stylish men that I know. From suits to amazing coats and casual pieces, these men looked amazing enough to go inside GQ magazine. Then, I started realizing that I should write a post about what makes a stylish man, stylish. 

Men are completely different from women. As a woman, our style is made up of many bells and whistles and tend to change often. Men are completely different. They find a style that works for them and they stick with it. 

The questions I pose for today are:

  • What are the makings of a stylish man?
  • What are HIS habits?

In my personal opinion, attitude, lifestyle, surroundings, and personality traits make up a stylish man. All four components, if viewed in a positive light, can make him look the best!

A stylish man's habits would be:

  • Investment pieces. Stylish men invest in expensive, timeless pieces that are interchangeable. Pieces that will last you for a lifetime. 
  • Amazing shoes. He will invest in shoes that wouldn't have to be replaced every 3-6 months.
  • Tailors. A stylish man will have a tailor on call. His suits would be customized and altered to fit his body size and style. 
  • Taking pride in HIS appearance. He will be well groomed from top to bottom. 
  • Knowing that quality vs quantity is impoprtant. A stylisth man may have just enough pieces in his closet that will last forever vs having a cheap sweater in various colors. If he's a casual man, his quality pieces could be dressed up or down. If he's the tailored suit kind of guy, his quality pieces would be for work and then off to happy hour afterwards. 

My challenge for you is to take a look in your closet and ask yourself this: What does my clothes say about my lifestyle? What are the makings of my style?
