Now having seen these outfits. what are dose things they all have in common..? still have no idea? fear not for that’s what i’m here to show you

Hair styles should be neat and groomed. In one of my first articles “Finding Your Face Shape ” i talked about knowing your face shape. i know…it is basically for women but it also applies to the men as well . knowing your face shape helps guide you to hair cuts which enhances your look .Whether you like to sport it short or long, it should be groomed and neat at all times. bald head works perfectly well for black men as they have the right shape of head. You already know if that is you or not. If it is you, then march tall. But if you don’t have the right head for it, leave it alone. Instead, consider growing your hair out and wearing it natural. Maybe some short twists or a nice, short, shaped hair cut. Whichever style you choose, consider getting it professionally done to ensure your look is tight. Build your fashion around your natural looks!

Sort out the colors that work with your skin tone. Black men with darker skin tones should stay clear of the darker colors and focus on colors that are soft and not too bright. For example, stay away from blacks and browns and make friends with beige and creams. Some black men can pull off pink, especially if they have darker skin, but it needs to be a soft pink. Light-skinned black men can work with the blacks and darker colors to create contrast and basically i think they can play with almost any color. The colors you use dictate your level of fashion.

Avoid flip flops. OK so  technically this is not in the list but how could I not include it? If your are a fan of sandals, avoid flip flops at all costs, unless of course you are trying to present a feminine side. Flip flops are shower shoes and not fashion statements, and should remain in the shower. Instead, steer towards the sandals that only expose the feet through small vents in the sides and in the top of the shoe. This type of sandal allows you to keep your masculine presence and cool your feet at the same time. They also go well with jeans, and long Khaki shorts.
So There you have it. Now go out there and take over the world*winks*
