No matter how much effort you put in, you never look as good as your well-dressed friend…Ever wondered WHY? Do you need help in dressing better and looking stylish? Are you confused about what to wear when going out to an event, dinner or a party?
If you have answered yes to any one of the questions, you need to read this blog because I am going to help you dress stylish and look better than all your friends.
Not everything is about gifted genetics, right? The way you present yourself to the world plays a huge role. Dressing up is an art and unfortunately, it’s an art hard to master but fortunately enough I am here to help you master that art. In this blog, I will be talking about quick and easy ways that will not only make you look good but will also make you feel your best.
Now, there would be some men out there thinking “How does it matter if i dress up or not” or “Why make so much effort” but if little things can make a huge difference to your look then why not do it? Right?
My first advice to look stylish is to always DRESS ACCORDING TO THE OCCASION. Be aware of the nature of the event you are attending. Wearing a three-piece suit to a casual outing with friends will look as ridiculous as wearing jeans and t-shirt to a black-tie event.
If you are heading out for a casual outing with friends wear a Polo T-shirt with some dark denim or switch it up to chinos for a more crisp look. If you are going out on a date, wear a shirt with some denim or chinos. For more formal events, opt for a well-fitting suit.
WEAR CLOTHES THAT FIT. This the easiest way to look sharp and stylish. Nailing the right fit will solve 90% of your styling problems. If you tend to wear larger fits for comfort, then it’s time to toss those old ways away. Right fit can make a simple pair of T-shirt and jeans look stylish. It will look like you have put in some efforts to dress up. Right fit is the key to dressing smart and making your outfit stylish. Poor fit is capable to make your outfit look borrowed and that is something you definitely do not want.
That brings us to the next point, having a SUIT THAT FITS is extremely important to make you look well dressed. Invest in a bespoke suit. Trust me, you will never regret it. A well-fitted suit not only looks good but will also make you feel confident. If you are confused about the right fit, we have a blog which talks about Fit guide for a suit. It is a self-explanatory guide but ifyou still feel confused, DM us on Instagram which will also be linked down below and we will answer all your queries.
Moving on to the third point, INVEST IN STATEMENT PIECES. Do not cheap out on suits, blazers, shoes, belts, glasses and bags. Not telling you to splurge but choose quality over quantity. Statement pieces are something you will wear over and over again. You can throw on the simplest outfit, add on a statement piece and your simple outfit would not be simple anymore. Invest in it. These pieces can make you stand out amongst your group.
BUILD A NEUTRAL WARDROBE. If you are confused about your style, stick to classics and neutrals. Wearing neutrals is always a good idea and you can never go wrong with it. Neutrals aren’t overpowering. Because they’re not overpowering they easily mix. Powerful colours like neon green and orange are pretty hard to work with. If your wardrobe is all neutral colours, you don’t need to know “how to mix and match colours”. A neutral colour wardrobe is essentially self-working!
This also implies buying classics first before you invest in trends. Trends come and go, classics however never get outdated. Which also means you will never be dressing out of fashion.
START ACCESSORISING. Imagine you and your friend show up to a party wearing the same outfit. How will you stand out and look better? Exactly! By accessorising! Don’t be afraid to accessorise.
Accessorising can make your outfit a little more stylish. Wear a watch, a pocket square, a brooch or those fun socks…. whatever seems appropriate and trust me you will instantly look 10 times more stylish.
GROOM YOURSELF. If you want to look stylish and make an impression then, please pay attention to your appearance. Look after your oral hygiene. Take care of your skin, trim your nails, Work on your hairstyle. Messy hair won’t do anything for you, in fact, can bring down your whole appearance. Grooming is as important for men as it is for women. Most men tend to undermine the importance of personal grooming. A well-groomed person will always feel good about himself which will indeed help him boost his confidence.
Always make sure you wear clean, ironed clothes. Most importantly wear clean shoes. People tend to notice shoes first when they meet someone. All these tips are simple and easy to follow but the change and impact they can bring in your look are unparalleled.
Moving forward, another tip that will hugely help you to make a perfect impression is to use a GOOD SCENT. “You smell good” is the perfect complement one can receive. Use a scent that compliments your natural body scent.
Wear scents according to the occasion and time of the day. Go for fresh summery smell for day time and a strong woody smell for the night. Choose a scent that’s not too overpowering. Scents have an understated impact in your look. Scents also have an ability to make you perceive attractive. Putting perfume hardly takes few seconds yet many tend to skip it.
