Too many young men’s fashion style revolves around suiting up. But what you’re looking for is some casual style to look sharp outside of a suit and tie? And that style of you still likes to keep it casual?
Well, you’ve hit the right place.
Young men are the future leaders and dressing sharp is the first step towards becoming a professional. Clothing doesn’t make the man. However, the right clothing influences others. That being said – crisp, clean, and well-fitted clothing encourages others to take you more seriously.
Tip #1 Dress to Look Mature
As the quote says, “Your energy introduces you before you even speak,” your appearance defines your spirit. Also as the society always judges you by your first impression, it is a major factor in establishing relationships, especially professionally. You even pay attention to your body language, standing upright, extending strong handshakes, when you want to appear more assertive. But under all of this, lies an even more important factor when making your first impression, and that is dressing to look mature. You have so many better options to dress mature – Solid t-shirts, Striped T-shirts, Casual shirts or Polos. Despite popular belief, you wouldn’t blend into the crowd but look sharper!
Tip #2 Rock Trousers That Make You Look Good
The go-to casual pants for any guy is a pair of jeans. And nothing is wrong with that as long as you´re wearing the right pair. Avoid baggy and low-waist jeans, the ones with embellishments and logos. You want to avoid pulling up your jeans every five seconds. They should keep themselves up without a belt and should not pool around your ankles. Instead, keep it simple. Go for a straight, clean pair that fits like it was made for you. Trust me; you’ll look awesome. But jeans is not the option for legwear. Adding a pair of chinos to your wardrobe doubles the number of outfits you can create. You don’t have to go bold red or yellow, instead, a subdued colour like army-green change things up.
Tip #3 Class Up Your Footwear
Your sun-beaten, dirty sneakers will ruin an otherwise excellent outfit. Don’t think people don’t notice your shoes, they do, especially women. Wear a pair of Loafers or Desert boots, and Ta-da, you look sharper. They look nicer than sneakers. They’re perfect and super comfortable for casual wear.
Tip #4 Learn to Love Layering
You don’t have to suit up to dress well, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spruce up your casual look up a bit. Make a dull outfit more interesting by layering up. It could be a bit intimidating when you don’t know how to match clothes all that well. But the thing is, you don’t have to know all that much about it. “White T-shirt” is the magic word for layering up! It’s a simple fix that gives a bit more detail to the outfit that makes it more visually appealing. A good-looking blazer along with the white t-shirt will make you an easy way to smarten your simplest of looks.
Tip #5 Decorate Your Wrists
Naked wrists are boring. So wrist accessories are another way to smarten up a professional you. A metal watch, a leather bracelet, or both gives your outfit a bit more personality. Keep it crisp. You become someone who clothes himself with intention from someone who clothes himself to stay warm.
You just want to look good in your clothes and make a better first impression on people you meet in everyday life. Stop trying too hard and shooting yourself in the foot. Shoot for subtle, simple, understated outfits, and you’ll be a better-dressed version of you.
