We live in a world where everyone is conscious about the way they look, especially if you are a student in London. Skinny jeans, fancy haircuts and piercings are a must for boys and girls who want to make themselves noticed in the fast-moving world of fashion, even if comfort has to be sacrificed. What celebrities wear on TV and on the high street is not always the right garment or fashion style for you.
Spending large amounts of money on unnecessary clothes is not what fashion is about. Use whatever is in your wardrobe, even if it’s old. True fashion can mean recycling your long-forgotten clothes. Skinny ties and slim fit trousers are ‘in’ at the moment, but this was also the fashion trend in the 60s and 70s. Men’s fashion can be complex and nerve-racking but simple tips can help.
Ammar, 20, is an employee at one of the world’s biggest fashion retailers, Selfridges. He said: “Working with what suits you best is the key. Don’t buy an outfit just to go out on a date to impress the lady. She’ll be impressed by you for not making an effort. Less is more, always remember that. A simple black shirt and trousers will do the job. It’s cheap and cheerful, and you can’t go wrong.”
As a young man, if you feel like a fashion victim, don’t be afraid to go with what you think suits you. Fashion is what you want it to be. One of the world’s leading male models, David Gandy, has released an app which offers a style guide for men. If you have an eye for fashion, but you’re just too lazy to shop, then this app is for you.
