It’s no surprise that a well-chosen accessory can elevate the level of style of an outfit from being decent to exceptional. While every man’s wardrobe will have a white button-up shirt, loafers, and a blazer, there are far more staples to add and items to consider when dressing. Clothes are a great way to communicate your personality, passions, and interests. Wearing an oversized sweater conveys wanting to be comfortable, while high heels show that you are interested in being fancy and high-end. Whether it’s shoes or your watch, accessories are another away to show off your style. Follow these three tips to show off your style and personality.
Use Shoes to Tie Everything Together
A good pair of shoes can bring your outfit together and truly tie things off that might otherwise not quite be complete. Consider a pair of shoes that have some unique traits like patterns, studs, or designs. Another way to find great shoes is by getting creative with the fabrics or materials — consider snakeskin or leather or go animal-friendly with synthetic leather or suede. Suddenly a simple blazer and jeans or pantsuit can come to life with exquisite, unique shoe choices. Shop quality over quantity when it comes to shoes. Your shoes deal with the shock and weight of your body with each step. Shoes are an exceptionally important part of your wardrobe arsenal. If you choose quality and have a variety of options available for any circumstance, you’ll be dressed to impress!
Dress to Impress
Having an outfit that shows you put time and invested thought into can help win over clients and impress your date. Showing up in nice jeans and stylish sneakers is fine for certain activities, but high-quality shoes and a well-groomed appearance can have just as much influence as your personality does. By following a few guidelines, you can ensure you’re prepared for any situation to impress your boss or have a positive influence with your colleagues. Always have a basic white V-neck shirt, don’t hang on to clothes that have become worn, outdated, or faded, and do a clothing refresh every six months. If you haven’t worn something after six months, it’s time to let it go.
Invest in High-Quality Clothing and Try Things On
Always shop for a suit in person and take the time to invest in something well-fitted that is tailored to fit you perfectly. Know your measurements and the best sizes for you with your preferred brands or designers. Select a flattering color palette to enhance your skin, eyes, or hair color and have a variety of clothes in that color palette to allow for easy mix and matching. Invest in a durable, made-to-last pantsuit set as well as a few blazers that are good for informal or formal settings. Transition out clothes that are no longer in style or patterns that are a throwback to years past. Let your style change with the times just like your personality and activities.
It is easy to update and refresh a man’s wardrobe to have a well-rounded, quality sense of style.
