Looks Women Love on Men
Looks women wish guys would wearJennifer Aniston recently announced that certain of the things she loves about her new man Justin Theroux is his amazing sense of style. That’s ideal for her, but…most men aren’t so savvy with clothes, especially if they have to decorate. Kick your guy’s evening look up a notch with one of these ideas from Sachin Bhola, fashion editor of AskMen. com. (Bonus: They won’t crush your man's ego. )

Get Him to Rock A Formal Hairstyle
No level of your look input will make him look acceptable if he forgets about grooming.
Would Ryan Gosling's appearance at the Ides of March premiere work without that hair? Nope. You can achieve a similar look by getting him to slick his hair to 1 side with a dime-size level of pomade (finish with spray gel for a shiny look). For more formal hairstyle ideas, check out AskMen's guide, where all the products are under $10.
Have Him Flaunt A vintage Watch
Whether you're bringing your man to a swanky social gathering or wedding, it's likely that, at some point at night, he'll be asked what time it really is. And because details make the man, a vintage watch is a lot more impressive than, say, his iPhone with a Z-list model screensaver.
A vintage watch includes a story, is original and incredibly gentlemanly. There may be one already sitting in his (or your) father's closet ready to make its debut.

Master The Mix
Men gravitate to prints and color exactly the same way they gravitate to a vegan hamburger. But dressing up may be the perfect time and energy to bring ‘em out.
Take Jon Hamm's look: Not only is every piece he's wearing patterned, he's also included color. While your guy does not have to be quite so daring, follow one basic rule: pick from exactly the same color family, in this case red-violet. In any event, it sure is an intensify from the usual gray on gray on gray on gray.

Introduce Him to the Dress Shoe
Since guys broadly speaking can't stand wearing dress shoes, getting him a set of oxfords will be transformative for you, but shouldn't freak him out. He could even get away with pairing these with his favorite dark-wash jeans so he's not stepping too far out of his safe place. Baby steps, ladies.
