Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery they say, so read these tips from the top and follow these style secrets to learn how to dress well.
Here are six more style secrets that every modern man should know. This advice can help you become the sharpest-dressed man at the office, bar or even on the train.
1. Create an Outfit
A seemingly outdated process for a stuffy old-school butler, preparing your outfit prior to wearing it may seem like a dithering fuss. However, this essential preparation will prevent any unexpected inconvenience in dressing the next morning. It will also guarantee your outfit looks more considered and stylish instead of simply thrown together.
2. Subtle Details
When it comes to dressing, less is more. If dressing for a formal event, avoid wearing a waistcoat, pocket square, bow tie as well as a tie bar, as this will look flamboyant and cluttered rather than stylish.
3. Good-Quality Underwear
Treat your underwear with the same care you would give the rest of your clothing. Ensure you wear good-quality items that will stand the test of time and give you ultimate comfort and a confidence boost. Follow the lead of stylish men and throw away old underwear and socks every six months to keep you looking your best.
4. Regular Haircuts
Find a barber that you can trust to cut your hair consistently well, and book your haircuts well in advance. A haircut every six weeks will keep you looking sharp. Ensure you also choose a style that will suit your face shape.
5. Enjoy Dressing
If you don’t enjoy it, you won’t achieve the best – and in the case of dressing, you will likely never be stylish. The key to looking good and dressing well is to take pleasure in the process of dressing and relish each item and moment of wearing it. Make sure you love and care for your clothes.
6. Assert Individuality
Mix classic clothing pieces with unexpected twists to create a look that is uniquely your own. Choose traditional sharp-cut tailoring with unusual linings, different coloured buttons, contrasting lapels or collars in different fabrics or colours. Have the confidence to be different.
