Of course if you asked a fashionable lady, she will say “guys have it easy!” Maybe they are right but I never understood how a female struggles with her style game because they have so many options. For a man, it's a bit more complicated than it looks.
The reason why it’s so hard is because keeping up with trends can be kind of pricey. Well fellas, I am going to help you.
