Well-Dressed Men (See Jane Style)

shot from a recent Trunk Club photo shoot that I helped facilitate
As some of you may already know, I'm a men's stylist over at Trunk Club.  I'm constantly scouring the shelves of inventory in our loft to create the perfect outfit for men all across the country.  Men's fashion is now a passion of mine and as the temperatures rise, I can't help but to incorporate some of my favorite trends into outfits I pack for my clients and show to guys in person.  Some of my favorite tips that I pass along to clients below...

  • Colored pants aren't just for women.  They can liven up a classic navy blazer--especially at a summer wedding!
  • Get to know a tailor.  Men and women alike should make it a priority to find a great (and inexpensive) tailor; it can make a world of a difference when taking in blazers, shortening hems and even nipping in the waist.
  • Learn to layer.  Whether it's a t-shirt under a henley (as pictured above) on a warm afternoon or a button-down under a sweater under a blazer in the fall, layering helps to give you a distinctive style.  Plus, it keeps you warmer on chilly spring days so you can avoid your heavy overcoat!
If you're interested in using Trunk Club for man in your life (husband/dad/brother/etc), feel free to sign up here or shoot me an email at anna@trunkclub.com.  We ship (free both ways!) to the lower-48 states and for those in Chicago, you can set up an appointment with me at our loft in River North.

My husband just got a pair of awesome bright (dark) green pants and they look incredible on him! I'm definitely with you on the coloured pant for guys!

yes, layering, always a fabulous and so simple strategy to give the illusion of deep and profound sartorial thoughts.

I love me a well dressed man! Haha! My boyfriend does a pretty good job on his own, but I think he'd enjoy something like this to give him a different perspective on style. Emailing him the link to your site as I type, lol!

My guys really tall, 6'7 to be exact, so finding him clothes it always a chore. He likes fashion but can't really get into it because of the difficulties he had finding clothes that fit. We have found a few stores that sell European brands but everything is super expensive. HELP!!!!

That model is yummy. Hubba, hubba. I've just begun styling men and it's way harder than styling women, in my opinion! Nice job styling Adonis ;)
