10 Tips to Polish Up Your Partner’s Style Without Hurting Their Feelings

survey has shown that the clothes women would love to see on the men in their lives differ greatly from baggy hip-hop pants and faded jeans, to cashmere, tuxedos, and wing-tipped dress shoes. Both men and women can sometimes be unhappy with the way their partners dress. If you are one of those people who want to elevate their boyfriend’s style, there are things you should know before making your partner throw away all his clothes.

Here at Bright Side, we’ve collected some tips that will help you change your partner’s look for the better with love and tact.

1. Plan a shopping trip for the 2 of you.

It’s not that easy to engage a man with shopping, so it’s better to limit it in time and visit only men’s departments. In this case, you will pay all your attention to your boyfriend’s wardrobe and avoid the temptation to pick up some clothes for yourself. Remember to be positive: instead of saying that you hate your boyfriend’s T-shirt, tell him how attractive he would look in a smarter shirt.

2. Strategically gift him clothing items and accessories.

If your man hates shopping, don’t insist on it. Instead, buy him a clothing item you like and gift it with some nice words. Tell him that when you saw that item in the store you thought of how great he would look in it and how happy it would make you feel. When purchasing that gift, make sure it matches your boyfriend’s personality, not yours.

3. Invite him to an event he’ll have to dress up for.

If you plan to elevate your boyfriend’s style, it would be logical to give him a reason to dress up. Invite your man to dinner at a fancy restaurant, or plan an evening at the opera for the 2 of you. In this case, your man will have no choice but to refuse his casual jeans and T-shirt and search for something more suitable (with your help, of course).

4. Help him get rid of the clothes you don’t like.

Before getting rid of some old clothes in your man’s wardrobe, make sure you offer up new items as an alternative. Men don’t give up on their favorite clothes that easily, so you’ve got to interfere and help. You can use spring-cleaning as an opportunity to go through your partner’s wardrobe together and decide which items no longer fit him and can be donated or sold at a garage sale.

5. Get him a tailored suit.

What could be more flattering than a tailored suit that fits like a glove? A bespoke suit is made to bring out strengths and minimize problem areas and it fits perfectly, which makes it a wise investment. A tailored suit might seem too expensive, but it will last for years and will bring pleasure to both of you in the long run.

6. Focus on the fit.

A good fit is the key to success. Even a simple shirt and jeans that fit well will look much better than a poorly tailored suit. So, keep that in mind when choosing clothes for your boyfriend in a store or when ordering a bespoke suit.

7. Choose proper clothes for muscular men.

Choosing the right clothes for a man with big muscles might be a challenge, and there are some rules to follow if you want to succeed. It’s better to stick to neutral colors that don’t attract too much attention and to avoid clothes that add extra volume like cable knit sweaters and puffer coats. Slim-fit denim clothing and (again) tailored suits are good options.

8. Don’t forget about the details.

Details can sometimes change the whole look and they surely can’t be ignored. Cufflinks, tie bars, and pocket squares might seem too small to be noticed, but they give a finishing touch to the whole look. Shoes are also important. Sometimes men can’t put their shoes and clothes together, so when you pick up a new look for your boyfriend, make sure you pick out a nice pair of shoes to match that look.

9. Compliment your partner’s choice of clothes.

Don’t forget to compliment your man’s taste when he wears clothes that you think look nice on him. Positive reinforcement and words of encouragement are the most important when you want another person to change their habits. Remember the golden rule: treat others the way you’d want to be treated.

10. Be tactful.

Don’t be pushy and don’t impose your taste on your boyfriend if he doesn’t like your choice of clothes for him. Try to pick up looks that match your partner’s personality and taste, not yours. Before suggesting any changes, try to find out why he chooses to wear particular pieces. If your man values comfort, try to show him in a tactful and respectful way that nicer clothes can be just as comfortable.

This Pants Style Is Leaving People With Weirdly Burned Legs

Suns out, knees out, as the old saying goes. Spring is finally here, and people are celebrating by learning what the power of the burning ball of gas up there can do—cook you slowly. People with pale skin and a desperate need to wear ripped jeans are being punished by the Sun God with unsightly burn patterns:

It happens literally every year, since ripped jeans were invented.

It’s like people forget that the sun is enjoying the fine weather, too, and it wants to burn brightly:

It’s honestly kind of crazy that ripped jeans have been plaguing us as a style for so long, because they make no sense as either pants or fashion:

It won’t stop until every person who wears them learns this painful lesson individually:

You can wear them indoors, I guess, but anything that involves showing your knees to the sky is bad:

The sky doesn’t want to see your knees, and it will punish you.

You can start to work up a tan in those problem areas.

Or stop wearing them entirely!

Or just remember to slather up with sunscreen in any leg-baring scenario:

It’s been a long winter. 

And it’s not just your legs you have to look out for. Protect your face:

Your torso:

Your arms:

Your back:

Even the back of your head:

Fashion is not worth it!
