featuring JORD Wood Watches
This post is sponsored by JORD but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
There are two types of men when it comes to style. The ones that must buy everything name brand and on trend with their shoes always looking brand new and perfectly groomed faces. And then there are those like my husband who would be happiest if they never had to step foot into a mall ever again in their lifetime whom happily wear 10 year old t-shirts and dad jeans. Either type of man can have some style and here is How to Help Your Husband Stay Stylish featuring JORD Wood Watches. These tips and tricks will also work for boyfriends or even sons.
There is a JORD Wood Watch giveaway! Check out details towards the bottom of this post.
DATE NIGHT SHOPPING
Make a date night to shop for your husband. We do this once or twice a year where we spend hours at the mall just to focus on clothes for my husband. I look at nothing for myself – it is all about him! This is when he is able to stock up on all new jeans, t-shirts, socks, and underwear. Plus, we find a pair of shoes or two, sunglasses, hats and whatever else we stumble upon like a leather jacket, sweaters, or button ups. I have found by making a special night based just around him and items he needs, the whole shopping attitude is uplifted.
Make friendly suggestions on what you think your husband would look good in. Grab a color you think would match his skin tone or a trendy print to try on.
PURCHASE CLOTHES FOR HIM
Away from our yearly shopping date night, you won’t find my husband out shopping. He doesn’t like to go shopping and he could really care less if his clothes are old and beat up. So, it is up to me to purchase clothes throughout the year to keep him dressed stylish. When purchasing clothes for your husband, stick to brands you know fit him well and styles you know he likes to wear.
INVEST IN BASICS
Basics are everything. Invest in that basic wardrobe so he has everything he needs to dress appropriately for any occasion. Basics should also be in neutral shades and not overly trendy so they can last years.
- Dark wash jeans
- White dress shirt
- Oxford button down shirt
- Black suit
- Variety of polos
- White sneakers
- Leather jacket
- V neck sweater
- Dress shoes
- Plain t-shirts
FIND A GOOD TAILOR
Fit is essential! Those basic pieces should all be tailored to fit perfectly. Your husband can wear jeans and a t-shirt with a blazer over top and look super stylish just because that blazer fits like a glove.
A TIMELESS ITEM THAT GOES WITH EVERYTHING
Men don’t need a whole lot of accessories to complete an outfit. Men can get away with wearing one timeless piece everyday of the week. That one piece for my husband is a watch and he is in love with his new JORD Wood Watch!
About JORD Wood watches
JORD Watches are hand-crafted wood timepieces made of raw materials with refined design. Designs available for both men and women in various woods starting at affordable prices.
The watch shown is from the Dover Series in Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood. This watch is absolutely stunning with the two toned woods and the details in overall design are exquisite. The gears on this Dover Series watch is what really makes this watch stand out and these photos don’t do it justice – you have to see it up close in person to fully appreciate the craftmanship.
That Special Touch
This watch is a perfect gifting idea (pssst… Christmas is approaching fast) for the man in your life or for yourself because you deserve pretty things. You can get these watches customized to size and engraved. You can even engrave the beautiful wooden box the watch comes in. Since my husband is a military man, I chose to engrave the back of the watch with something meaningful to us,
” It doesn’t matter where you go in life. It’s who you have bedside you.”
When you are helping your husband stay stylish, you have to be able to let go a little bit. You may want to see him try out new trends or wear certain brands or particular colors but that may not be what your husband is comfortable in. You don’t like to leave the house in in an outfit that you don’t feel yourself in so don’t pressure your husband to do so. My husband is that typical jeans, t-shirt, ballcap and running shoes type of guy. This is what makes him comfortable and so we try and play with his style based on that.
SHARE THESE TIPS
We can’t dress our husband every morning (okay, maybe we could but don’t do that) so share these basic styling tips so he can have the confidence to create outfits on his own and find his style.
Layering. Layering adds instant style by creating visual interest and contrast.
Stay wrinkle free. My husband irons his clothes far more than I do mine. By simply ironing and creating perfect creases in pants or tops, your man will look instantly put together.
Socks should match trousers. This rule still goes over my husbands head still… 12 year in. Tan pants should be worn with tan socks… black pants with black socks… grey on grey… you get the point.
Color and pattern. Mix it up a little with some color and/or pattern. Even a patterned pocket square on a basic suit can add a lot of style to a basic look. Encourage him to try something out of the ordinary every once in awhile.
Stay well groomed. A fresh hair cut, well groomed eyebrows, trimmed nails and freshly shaven facial hair are necessary in men’s style. If your husband has facial hair (the beard is in), make sure he has the right tools to keep it well maintained.
