How To: Score The Modern Classic Look For Men

The modern classic look for men is taking over and I want to break it down for the men out there so they too can get in on this hot trend.  It’s great to have basic suits and ties.  A classic black or grey suit with a white collared shirt is timeless.  But it’s also good to shake it up and I could easily see actor Bradley Cooper in this look.  He loves him a suit and is a fan of testing out the suit trends, as pictured above.  Take a cue from this People Magazine Sexiest man, he knows how to make a suit work for him.

So with spring just around the corner, what better time to go through your closet and add some collared shirts with color and prints to add an extra something something to that basic suit.  Here’s a quick breakdown to really make it even more easy:

Modern Classic Look Basics:

1.  Basic suit. (no tie)

This investment piece should already be in the man’s closet.  If not, time to invest!

2.  Printed bright collared shoot.

Fun fashion splurge to try out and I promise you will receive a ton of positive comments… and some surprised looks for trying something unexpected.

Optional:  Basic black or white pocket scarf (depending on what color is in the shirt)

Modern classic is a look that will get a man noticed.  It adds a bit of his own personality to the suit and helps make the look more his own.  So put on a suit and test out collared shirts with pink stripes and blue polka-dots, turquoise tropical print, silver geometric patterns, neon floral.

Most importantly have fun and don’t be afraid to add some color to that basic suit!
