2. Know what trends to pass on, and which ones actually work for you.
Speaking of trends, it's good to keep track of what's out there, but you should also know what'll actually look good on your body type. The whole OD leather thing might work for some, but plenty of guys simply can't pull it off (sorry Rob Kardashian). Remember: Classic and simple beats new and trendy any day of the week, so take any hot new brand or way of dressing with a grain of salt. That said, there's absolutely nothing wrong with taking a style risk. After all, the best way to find out how you want to dress is by making a few mistakes along the way.
