The journal argues that your dress code can change how others perceive you and how you perceive yourself and recommends trying a new look for a tip to boosting self-confidence.
Everyone would probably love to look sharp, and it’s not a hard nut to crack. It only takes doing right the little things we often ignore.
Here are a few tips to help you look sharper!
Ensure Your Clothes Fit Right
We are in the 21st century, and those baggy jeans and khakis are way out of fashion. Unless you get your clothes custom-tailored, you probably will have to get them adjusted. Always strive to ensure your shirts, pants, and jackets hug the shape of your body without getting them too tight.
While at this, make sure you get a great tailor. Do not just trust anyone with a sewing machine. Not on your favorite pair. Invest your time to find a perfect tailor who can slim your pants without compromises.
Choose the Colors Right
Most people have their favorite colors, but you do not have to overdo some blue just because it’s your favorite. It’s your best but keep it simple. Even if you love black, make sure you choose a different color for the pants if your shirt is black.
However, if you are not quite perfect at color choices, you can have a few combinations and buy your clothes in those colors.
Mind the Shoes and Belt
Do not get too pre-occupied with the pants and shirts and forget other vital accessories. The shoe color matters, but at least black will go a long way for you if you have a problem with colors. However, try to match it with the belt. A black leather shoe will probably not look good with a brown belt. If it has to be brown, you can go for a brown shoe as well. Let the gym shoes remain strictly for the gym.
Men will not need a lot of accessories, but a wristwatch means a lot. Here, you do not have to stress out about the colors. You can check out a few products from Ralph Christian and go with what looks good on you.
Subscribe to Men’s Catalogue
Most men are either unskilled or find it hard to shop around for clothes and end up making random picks. If you fall under this category, subscribing to a couple of men’s clothing catalogs would be the best idea. You can use these catalogs to see what clothes go for your body size and what looks off.
The catalogs also help you identify the outfits you love and the stores with the clothes you like. Besides, you can even approach any store with the images and ask for the outfits or similar.
Fashion and design experts can quickly point out outfits for you, but you don’t have to go that far unless you have a friend who can help you shop for free. In any case, you are good to go with the above smart tips.
