The 4 Rules of Mastering Denim

Featured Blogger Brian Boye- The Four Rules for Mastering Denim

The good news is that we can wear jeans just about anywhere today. But that doesn’t mean you can wear any jeans anywhere. Men have more options for expressing their personal style with this most essential clothing item, but there’s a right style and fit for different occasions.

Beyond Blue

Blue jeans will always be the workhorse of the denim family, but there are more options now and adding variety to the mix gives you a more creative edge. Gray, burgundy and white look great on guys and are easy to wear. Let the colored jeans be the star of your outfit by pairing them with a simple neutral, like a blue denim shirt or a white button down. Are you lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work? Don’t ruin it for the rest of us by wearing faded, torn jeans. Darker rinses in serious shades like black and blue are best for 9-5. The basic jeans wardrobe should consist of a few pairs: simple and dark, faded for weekends and evenings and a few options in different colors.

Fit is King

I hope you don’t spend as much on your jeans as you do on your suit, but do spend the same amount of attention to getting the right fit. The most essential element to looking good in anything you wear is how it fits. Clothing that’s too large makes you look dumpy. Too small and you look big. Well-fitting jeans sit right at your waist and fit comfortably through the thigh. If you have to struggle to get your keys out of your pocket, they’re probably too tight. Skinny jeans – like the Express Rocco Skinny – look better on skinny guys. Guys with athletic builds look best in straight leg fits. A few extra pounds? Opt for something slightly more generous like the Express Kingston Straight fit.

Opposites Attract

The most important rule in style is balance. Wear something fitted with something more forgiving. Pair dark and light. With jeans, I like a faded pair of jeans with the jacket from my favorite black suit and a crisp white tee and a leather jacket. You can wear this with a pair of sneakers but it’s just as cool with a pair of shiny black oxfords. Hey, it worked for James Dean.

The Details

As guys we have it pretty easy. Throw on a shirt and a pair of jeans and we’re good to go. The only problem is, we’re all doing the same thing and once you get to where you’re going, there’s a good chance you’ll look like everyone else. The magic happens with the details. A few simple tricks to stand out in the crowd: wear colored socks. The rule of thumb with socks is that they should always match the pants, but mix it up by wearing a bold stripe or a bright pattern. Add an interesting belt in distressed leather or colorful canvas. It’s the easiest way to go from basic to interesting. Finally, cuff your jeans. It’s a great way to draw attention to your favorite shoes.
