clutch bags are for men too

As spring draws closer, the weather cant make up its mind if to be cold or slightly warm. It could be hard to decide what to wear to stay warm without wearing a coat or  huge winter jacket. Carefully layering your clothes is the way forward, so that way, you can peel off the layers if you begin to get too warm.

Every man should have a classic-cut very well fitted black blazer in their wardrobe. The ways of styling a blazer is literally endless. Throw it over any casual outfit and you immediately look dapper and ready to fit into any formal gathering. You can also get away with having several layers  of clothing under it without looking bulky. This is a great way for me to keep warmly comfortable and stylish without the need for a coat.

I am not a fan of keeping my phone and keys in my pocket, as this I believe ruins  a well put together outfit. The bulging pocket, the in-print of your phone and keys is not exactly the best look. Clutch bags are not just for women, every man should own one as you can fit your keys, phone, your card holder , lip balm and any other item you think is essential.

I am wearing a well fitted blazer from HnM blazer, which luckily I didn’t have to get tailored, as the fit was perfect. I have three layers on, because its that time of the year where the weather cant quite make up its mind. I have been able to achieve comfort without compromising my style. Believe it or not, my clutch bag is a find from the women’s section. What I will call a best-buy item. The secret to getting  a masculine look is selecting a neutral colour with straight and sharp silhouettes, a curvy silhouette may be too feminine , but if that’s what you are going for then by all means go for it.

What do you think of man bags and clutches, too feminine or a must have for every man? Do share your opinion in the comments section below

    Bulging pockets is a turn off for a man wearing smart pants or a suit. Thanks for this post, I know what I will be getting my boyfriend for his birthday 🙂
