#MENSTYLECHAT Q& A
Q1. Am throwing a Color blocking party on the 23rd of Sep and I don’t know what to wear please help.
Q2. As a male model I go to lots of networking dinners and events and go-see’s (with clients). This is different from castings as there are no briefs on dress code.I always have trouble deciding what to wear.
I try to look stylish, but my agent always says I over power and draw attention to my clothes instead of me. When I try to keep it simple, he says I should bring it up a notch.
I am confused.
What’s the correct dress code at social settings that say, classy yet not over powering, trendy yet tasteful? I’ve attached a picture of what I was planning to wear to another one of this big networking events.
