5 Ways to Help Your Man Look His Best

Ways to get your man to improve his fashion sense without cramping his style.


Go Shopping Together

Most men dislike shopping; it’s a fact of life. Next time you’re running errands, casually suggest you make a quick stop at a men’s clothing store. Once you’re both inside pick out a casual yet dressy piece you think would look good on him, like a button up casual shirt, and ask him “just to try it on and see.” Once he gets in the fitting room, you’re halfway through the battle.

5 Ways to Help Your Man Look His Best

Remember to Compliment

Always remember to pay a heartfelt compliment when your significant other wears something you picked out. Every man wants to hear he looks handsome and some loving words might just be the motivation he needs to add some more style to his wardrobe. He’ll feel better about wearing something new when he knows you appreciate the gesture.

Be a Stylish Example

You can’t expect your husband to dress up every now and then if you don’t. Take pride in yourself by staying up-to-date with the latest trends and wearing clothing that is well-suited for your shape. A joint update may sound pretty appealing since it shows your boyfriend or husband that it’s not just about him, but about your presence as a couple.

Most of all remember this: it’s not life-or-death. It’s just fashion. Have fun with it!

  1. My man always had this habit of just pulling anything from our closet and wearing it whether it looks good or not. He always says “it’s my thing” “I look good in anything babe” and he doesn’t! He has no sense of style. Luckily for him, I’m here now. Change is coming! Fast!

  2. Having worked in retail. I always make it a point to help male customers in picking their clothes. EVEN IF I KNOW THEY HAVE NO STYLE! I make it a point that I have at least BRUSHED off some style in their lives. Even if it’s unsolicited.

    Always went shopping with my bf and I always let him pick his clothes first before I do my thing because: 1. I can pick what looks good on him and 2. it lifts his mood so I can shop with a real man, not with a boy who gets bored easily.

    never really had trouble with style, the main reason is as a kid I always went shopping with my mom when he dressed my dad. so I know what looks good on us. so as the wise man named Barney Stinson said. “nothing suits me like a suit”. never have I ever seen a really versatile clothing for men than a suit. fit for any occasion. goes well with anything ladies ware, slick and fashionable.

    I bet to agree. We are often reluctant to talk about our needs in intimate relationships. Whether social conditioning or an inability to communicate our needs are to blame, We (Men) are prone to silently suffering when our emotional needs aren’t being met by our partners. We also need to be love and pamper 🙂

  6. This is key. When I was still a teenager, I was a pretty small guy and always got small sized clothing because I didn’t want to admit to myself that I was a size small. My girlfriend that time ordered a small t-shirt in a sale online because it was the only one still in stock and I’ve had a fair share of compliments wearing it, and I must admit it looks better. I wore small clothes proudly back then (not anymore though — not since I switched to a vegan diet and started lifting). I guess it is one of the good reason/example why women really can help men to look good. 🙂

    I totally relate with the struggle of making your man wear other than his shirt and jeans. I love the idea of going shopping together and trying on the clothes. It could be a chance for your partner to also suggest something for you. It’s a nice way to bond. Also, I agree with complimenting your partner. 🙂 We girls know how good it feels to be appreciated when we look extra when wearing something nice. It doesn’t take much effort to do the same for your man.

  8. I like the idea of shopping with your boyfriend. It allows us to spend more bonding time with him and help him boost his confidence. This post is very informative and on-point. I wouldn’t mind following all the advice here.
