ABOUT MEGAN COLLINS

Megan’s first experiences with men’s clothing came early, as the begrudging recipient of her older brother’s hand-me-downs. Eventually, she created Style Girlfriend, the only style destination of its kind for real guys seeking real advice from a friendly, female perspective, in 2009.

As the face of Style Girlfriend, Megan’s signature girl-next-door approach has captured the enthusiasm of thousands of grateful readers, as well as brands like H&M, Visa, NFL, Rogaine, and eBay, Megan also appears regularly in fashion, menswear, and lifestyle publications and websites including GQ, Esquire, Lucky, Metro, Huffington Post, and Men’s Health.

Most significantly, Megan has developed a powerful rapport with an ever-growing audience of millennial men who value her opinion, trust her recommendations, and look forward to connecting daily with Megan, her contributors, and each other. These conversations not only include discussions and advice about personal style, but the stereotypes and gendered assumptions that so often keep men from feeling comfortable experimenting with their style.

Originally from Wisconsin, Megan now resides happily in Brooklyn.

ABOUT STYLE GIRLFRIEND

The style principles found on SG apply equally to guys living in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between. Because no matter where you are: when you look good, you feel good. And that confidence is contagious.

Real guys seeking real advice from a friendly, female perspective.

These days, Style Girlfriend offers guys daily style advice and inspiration from a friendly and supportive female perspective. Topics range from food and fitness to travel and home, and of course, personal style. With this encouragement, guys learn how to look great and feel more confident.

SG STYLE PHILOSOPHY

FIT IS KING

Clothes that fit properly – from a pair of jeans to a wool overcoat – always look better than those that don’t. In everything you buy, look for a slim fit that cuts close (but again, not tight) to the body. Fit still not quite right? Get thee to a tailor.

INVEST IN A SUIT

Even the most casual man needs at least one suit in his closet. Avoid scrambling on this investment piece when the occasion calls by shopping now. Better to for a guy to have one in his closet ready to go that fits well and he feels good wearing.

SHOW OFF, A LITTLE

Make a big deal out of small details. Get shirts monogrammed. Wear patterned socks. Layer unexpected colors and textures. Find a pocket square that brings out those baby blues. These little touches are what make an outfit memorable.

WEAR CLOTHES WITH CONFIDENCE

At the end of the day, you want to be making the first impression, not your clothes. Don’t wear anything shiny, sparkly, or loud to mask insecurities. The clothes a man wears should make him feel more confident, and most importantly, more like himself.
