What do Leonardo DiCaprio and Jason Momoa have in common, other than being world-renowned heartthrobs?  Their gloriously twisted man buns and, of course, how immaculately they carry their outfits, from gruff leather jackets to floral button-ups!

If you have a man bun or are planning to grow one, this blog post is for you. In this article, we will cover the outfit ideas you can choose with your bun and how to make your hair look its best while setting a style statement.

Why Is It Important To Style Your Outfit If You Have A Man Bun?

Man buns may finally be getting the recognition they deserve. However, this doesn’t reduce the anti-status quo statement they make. A man who wears his mane in a bun is usually seen as someone rebellious, brave, and mostly comfortable enough in his intrinsic masculinity to go for a look like this.

However, apart from A-listers on magazine covers, the bun is still associated chiefly with tech guys and hipsters when it comes to routine life. It’s entirely up to you to reject or embrace the particular indie-ish vibe. Other than wearing your bun in different styles, say, a loose, messy one if you feel carefree, or one with no free stands when you mean business, one obvious way to do it is through your outfit.

Your outfit can either match and add to the flair of your hair or annihilate it and vice versa—your hairstyle can beat the purpose of your dressing sense as well as truly show the world the real you. This is why it is better to pay more heed to your everyday clothes and to style your outfit correctly if you have a man bun.

What To Keep In Mind While Styling a Man Bun?

It's a good idea to groom your bun alongside your outfit. This helps to properly merge the components of your style choices for all occasions. There are a few commonalities in all man buns, however:


  • Make sure your hair reaches at least your shoulder
  • Choose quality hair products according to the texture of your mane
  • Go for regular trims
  • Pick the right accessories
  • Style your bun according to the occasion
  • Don't forget to experiment

Man Bun Outfit Ideas

Man buns look really good with certain outfits. We have handpicked some of the trendiest and  most popular ones for you to rock with your fabulous bun:

Vintage Jackets

There are few staples in fashion that are as irresistible as vintage jackets. Nothing beats their nostalgic look and comfortable fit. The best part about them is that they can be paired with any item of clothing and practically any fabric—denim, cotton, you name it—and still, look like the classiest garb in the room.

Fringe Blazers

Fringed jackets are perhaps a necessity for any boho-themed closet. However, even if you don't want to go for a total hipster vibe, these leather jackets for men are some of the edgiest outfits to go with your man bun.

They may be a bit too experimental for the likes of some people, but we think they truly match the bold and daring aura of growing your locks as a dude.

Military outfits don't always haveto be khaki, however. Take our NWT Stylish Black Men Military Genuine Leather Jacket with green Sleeves as an example—it is modern, ultra-trendy, and straight out of an army Sci-fi movie!

Fur collared clothing used to be very popular in the 1980s and has been reclaiming its throne epicenes over the past few years.  It proves that men's fashion need not be oozing with toughness to win over the general public’s approval. Wearing something with a fuzzy collar is going to give you a gently rebellious vibe, much in line with the general perception of man buns.

Why Is Leather Such A Good Outfit Option For Man Buns?

Man buns are one brave fashion move, but then again, so is leather, in all its sturdy glory.  Both share a wide degree of versatility, as there are so many varieties to choose from among both of them.

Men's leather jackets, like man buns, are the epitome of practicality. From extreme weather conditions of severe cold and dust storms to long hours of work, you can always rely on a leather jacket. The same goes for man buns—if you have long hair and need to be out and about, they're your best option.

Both man buns and jackets can be easily accessorized with all sorts of things. You can tie your hair with bright colored rubber bands at concerts and hangouts, the same way you can wear something funky with your jacket. Or maybe just get a bright-colored coat yourself.

In addition, a lot of people forget that man buns aren't something new—East Asians have rocked them for centuries now. Therefore, they aren't a random Pinterest fad that's just going to disappear in a couple of years. It should be recognized as the all-rounder hairstyle it is, just like leather jackets for men are all rounding tops.

Closing Thoughts

At the end of the day, fashion preferences  come down to a person's private tastes. Thankfully, we live in an age where all sorts of self-expression is slowly becoming accepted without much discrimination.

We hope our ideas will inspire you to revamp your wardrobe. Don't forget to check out the rest of our catalogue to come up with some unique combinations! Who knows, you could spark the next big fashion movement on Insta!
