How to Wear Streetwear Like a Grown MAN
9 rules to dressing like a grown up
1. Find a suit that fits
A little boy wearing a suit for the first time is cute. A grown man trying to pull off an ill-fitting rig is anything but. You know the drill by now, so wear a suit that shows it. Need inspiration? Try one of these best suits for under £500.

2. Invest in a great pair of jeans
Finding that perfect pair of well-fitting jeans is worth the steep price tag. Look for three must-have qualities – a slim fit, dark wash, and sturdy construction – and you’ll be able to wear your jeans just about anywhere. Need more info? Try ourMHguide to denim.
3. Upgrade your outerwear
You spend most of the winter months in a coat, so give it the attention it deserves. Leave ill-fitting puffy coats to the amateurs – you need a sleek overcoat that slims your body with room for layering, so you'll look sharp whether you're wearing a suit underneath or just a pair of weekend "no need to put on clothes to get the morning paper" pajamas.
4. Know when shorts are appropriate
Shorts shouldn't be banned from a gentlemen’s closet. Just know when to wear them. You’ve got until spring to add fitted shorts that hit above the knee to your wardrobe. And to work your legs enough that you're not embarassed to wear them.

5. Upgrade your tees
Sure, there’s an emotional tie to each of your old “Lads on Tour” tees, but they’re holding back your style. Make room in your dresser for a handful of well-made, solid T-shirts in neutrals like black, gray, and olive. Try our guide to picking the right T-shirt.
6. Match patterns with skill
As a general rule, aim to match patterns that contrast in size. That means pairing a fine gingham shirt with a tie in a larger plaid. The resulting balance doesn't clash and shows you’ve put some thought into your look.
7. Pay attention to the little things
Look at a guy with enviable style and you’ll notice what sets him apart often comes down to the accessories. Invest in a sturdy tie bar, cufflinks, and a versatile white pocket square. Rest assured: People will notice. Brighten up your accessories with these tips.
8. Find a leather bag
Toss out your logoed nylon messenger bag. It's a switch your co-workers – especially your boss – will notice. Replace it with a simple leather briefcase that's label-free, so you can takeallthe style credit.
9. Refresh your jewellery
When you put away the cap and gown, it’s time to retire anything that labels you as a student. This includes string bracelets, dog tags, and anything resembling a piercing.
