We get asked a ton of questions about how to match clothing and what colors to wear, and more specifically, how to match with one’s hair and eye color. So, in this week’s 2 Minute Tuesday, we’re giving you the real truth about how men should match clothing to hair and eye color, and the answer might surprise you.
Don’t forget, if you’ve got questions for us, make sure to drop them in the comments section of the video, we’d love to hear from you and we’ll try to answer them in a future episode!
To sum it up, the answer is, no you don’t need to worry about matching your clothing to your hair and eye color.
This is a common case of overthinking things a bit too much. In the past, we’ve given you a few tips on how your skin color should relate to specific wardrobe color choices, but after that, you really don’t need to worry about it. Honestly, we believe this is just a falsehood that’s out there, whether it’s coming from other content creators or sites, who knows, but it’s taking it too far. Obviously thinking about how you’re dressing and putting colors together is really important. But, there’s a line between worrying about doing things the right way and wasting time focusing on things that don’t really matter. So, give yourself a break, focus on building the right essential wardrobe, and don’t overthink matching your clothes too much!
As you know by now, outside of being my husband, Dorian is my business partner, and now a fixture on our site and channel. We get a lot of questions about Dorian’s involvement in all of our content, so, while we swear he’s not “taking over the channel”, in this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday, we wanted to answer this question and give you some more insight!
He’s Around All The Time
Dorian’s a fixture in our business life and helps with a lot of aspects, so it seemed natural to include him as our business grew and evolved. Obviously we’re partners in life, so having him around is all the more wonderful as we get busier and busier in our professional lives.
He’s Knowledgeable On All Things
Because we collaborate so often and have been working together for awhile, Dorian has a ton of knowledge and smart opinions on all things style and accessories that I really value. He also is very passionate and knowledgeable about all things EDC, tech, and lifestyle, so we thought it would be a shame not to share with our readers and viewers of all the insight he brings to the table. Plus, as a regular guy just like you, he brings thoughtful opinions to the table, even when he disagrees, and we feel it’s important to bring this point of view to you as well.
It Helps Us Be More Efficient
It’s more of a technical production thing, but having him participate and assist in the filming of videos really is a huge help and time saver. With our wallet update video, for example, having him involved made the process much more efficient and productive.
Streetwear can be a pretty divisive topic these days, it can look good but also can go really wrong. While we always believe it’s important to cultivate a stylish essential wardrobe, it’s definitely good to also experiment with new trends and styles, especially as you’re on your journey to discovering your own personal style.
In this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday we’re weighing in on whether or not streetwear for men is attractive.
So, is streetwear attractive? In our opinion, yes! But it comes with a few caveats.
For The Right Person
Can streetwear look good? Yes, definitely. But it has to work with your existing style and confidence. If you’re the type of guy who can experiment with different styles and pull it off with confidence, then go for it. It definitely takes a certain amount of swag to make it work. If not, it can look fake and like you’re trying too hard.
Don’t Try Too Hard
Much like “Bad Boy Style”, streetwear is an overall look that can come off as really inauthentic if it doesn’t mesh well with your pre-existing overall look. You can look like you’re wearing a costume and like you’re trying way too hard. So, if you go for it, proceed with caution and give some consideration to when and where you’re adopting this vibe.
Hoodies, we’ve all got them, but how and when are the right ways for a stylish man to wear them? In this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday we dive into whether or not men should wear hoodies.
Don’t forget to check out all of our hoodie picks below!
Hoodie Style Tips
- No logos – You always hear me going on and on about no logos, and it’s for good reason! You’re not a billboard and large, garish logos aren’t something that adds anything stylish to a well-dressed man’s overall look.
- Solid colors only – Keep your color choices simple – grey, navy, black, olive, or dark grey.
- Stick with pullover hoodies – They’re a great layering piece as part of your casual wardrobe, especially with denim, chinos, and sneakers.
- Try Wool/Cashmere – Higher-end materials like cashmere can elevate the look of a hoodie and add a bit of extra something, especially if you’re wearing them in the evening.
