Arm Candy: Style Advice For Your Significant Other

Many women find themselves in a tricky situation at some point in their life. Let’s see if some of this sounds similar to anything you have experienced. 

After all, you love your significant other for everything they are. Your relationship is good, you feel like it’s built to last, and you’re genuinely good for one another. You have managed to deal with each other’s annoying habits and it looks like you’re going to stand the test of time.

The only downside? You’re stylish, you’re fashion-conscious, and you know how to put an outfit together even if you’re sleep-deprived and in a rush. 

And your partner? He’s… well… he’s rather challenged in that department. That seems to be about the best way of putting it! 

While your partner should always be the one who decides on his style ultimately, there’s nothing wrong with giving a few pointers and showing what he might be doing wrong. While you might have the grooming and style down when it comes to your own appearance, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re fully up-to-date when it comes to men’s hair styles and what should be finding a place in your boyfriend's wardrobe. So you can help him, run your eye over the following pointers, and you might both find a whole new him that completes the picture of your perfect romance. 

#1 - Manscaping

We’ve all heard the word, but what is manscaping and how does it concern your boyfriend?

The term is pretty simple. It means how a man grooms himself, predominantly when it comes to body hair. It’s how he keeps his chest hair under control and, if he has facial hair, how he wears it. There’s plenty of advice online about the latest trends which can help him be as style-conscious and up-to-date as you are. 

#2 - Understand His Proportions

Proportions are tough enough for us ladies, and we have a natural figure that dips in at the waist to help to guide us. No such luck for men, who are pretty much straight up and down. The proportions you have to be particularly aware of are the length of his legs in relation to his back. 

As a general rule, the shorter his legs are, the shorter his shirts and tops should be. Wearing these items longer than below the hip bone on short legs can make him appear stumpier, even if he’s actually over 6ft. For someone with a short back and long legs, the opposite is true; opt for longer styles to help create the perfect overall effects. 

#3 - Hair Today, And Tomorrow

Men’s hair has changed relatively little in centuries; since guys got rid of the powdered wig the general trend has been short and neat. That’s changed somewhat in recent years with “a bit less short and a bit less neat” becoming more popular, but ultimately, men’s hair is a tale of conformity. 

Does it have to be though? If you both like the idea, why not do something truly different that can define his style through its individuality? Hair always grows back or he can throw a hat on, so maybe it’s worth trying something a bit more out there!
