Style advice for the big 4-0

Everyone gets older; it is simply a part of life. The miracle of modern men’s fashion is that all men are catered for from birth to 100 years old in the shade. There isn’t an age that cannot be catered for in a men’s clothing store and it is up to you to find the right, age-appropriate items to add to your changing wardrobe. Get some male style advice is you are clueless.

So, let’s discuss a midlife crisis and the big 4-0; that’s right, you are turning, or have turned, 40 and it is time to adapt where your fashion is concerned. A midlife crisis isn’t so bad, even bad Brad (Pitt) went through one so it is nothing to be ashamed of. However, what you have to realize is that you may not be one of the young bucks anymore, but you are an older bull and still leader of the pack. Here is some male style advice for when the big 4-0 come a-knocking.

Color chameleon

As you age, your hair color changes, your skin tone and color changes and thus the colors you can wear change too. Male style advice about color: even if the cut and fit of a shirt or garment is flattering, if it is in the wrong color it can make you look unfashionable or, heaven forbid, even make you look older than you are.

Don’t act your shoe size

Clothing for different ages varies in style, cut, design and patterning. Edd Hardy may look cool on the younger bucks, but is not such a great choice for a distinguished gentleman in his 40’s. Don’t try to fit in with what your son or son in-law is wearing. Define your own style, act your age and show the world that you do not need the approval of the youngsters.

Find casual clothing that will flatter your shape, your age and your personality. And what if you still have a ripped body at 40, you may ask. Forget it, if you are not 20; don’t wear what they are wearing, no matter how good your body looks for your age.

There is nothing more embarrassing for a child than a father acting his shoe size instead of kitting himself out for his age, not to mention that others won’t think much of it either. Take this male style advice to heart and make some changes to your wardrobe.
