From patterned, slim-fit suits to wide-brimmed hats, chinos and moto jackets, #GentsChat co-host Jorge Gallegos effortlessly adds an eclectic and whimsical spin to what it means to be a dapper man. The creator of IAMMANCHIC and this week’s Very Perry Style, Gallegos schools us on how to dress like a Manchic gent by sharing a few of his top style tips.

Find Your Signature Style And Own It

Your signature style is what separates you from every other fashion-savvy guy. When your fashion choices are fueled by your personal style instead of being solely guided by what others tell you is trendy, that’s when you really shine. “Your personal style should be a combination of what looks good on you and what makes you feel good, plus an item or two featuring current trends,” says Gallegos. Adding on-trend pieces and accessories to your outfit will help balance out your personal aesthetic.

Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment

"A Manchic gentleman dresses with confidence and a little bit of attitude. The Manchic man is someone who is not afraid of taking risks or making a statement; in fact, he challenges himself by pushing his boundaries every time he goes out," adds Gallegos. Being experimental with your approach to fashion will help your inner style savvy grow. Switch it up with prints, patterns, bold colors and statement pieces. Whatever you decide to wear, just make sure it looks amazing. How do you accomplish that? Buy clothes that fit perfectly and have impeccable styling.

Be Resourceful

Being resourceful in how and where you find your clothing is an essential component of being fashionable. The best approach is to mix high- and low-end pieces in order to achieve multiple dapper looks, without breaking the bank. Gallegos mentions two specific things that should be on top of your list when you’re hunting for an addition to your closet:

“Fit and price are two of the most important things to consider before buying something. You could be wearing a $2,000 blazer, but if it doesn’t fit properly it’s going to look sloppy. On the other hand, a well-fitting $20 blazer could give you a more polished look than the expensive, ill-fitting choice mentioned above. Remember, style is not what you wear, but how you wear it.”
