Changing your style isn’t as difficult as you may have been led to believe. Improving your style often comes down to changing a few key elements that aren’t working for you. Here are seven ways you can instantly upgrade your personal look.
Accessories are an easy and affordable way to upgrade your style. Adding simple and smart accessories, like pocket squares or an elegant watch, demonstrate a keen attention to detail, which is the hallmark of good style. With accessories, the guiding principle is simplicity: don’t go overboard and accessorize too much with one outfit. Furthermore, avoid gaudy or loud accessories that attract too much attention; maintaining a stylish balance is very important.
2. Invest in a Nice Blazer
The blazer is a timeless and sophisticated fashion item that instantly improves the look of any outfit.Blazers can be worn with many different looks, both formal and informal. For a more casual look, pair your blazer with a pair of chinos and a V-neck t-shirt. While blazers look good in a variety of different colours, navy and grey are especially classy colours if you’re looking to upgrade your style.
3. Choose Quality Fabrics
The quality of the fabric you wear is very important when it comes to looking good. It’s usually fairly obvious when someone is wearing clothes made out of cheap fabric, especially when he’s wearing a suit. The cheaper the fabric the more likely it is to have an awkward shape, to look overtly synthetic, and to take on a shine under certain lights. While quality fabrics are an investment, it’s an investment well worth making. Quality fabrics look really good and they also last a lot longer. Learn More »
4. Mix It Up
Getting stuck in a fashion routine and wearing the same outfits and the same looks over and over again may feel comfortable and safe, but it’s actually having a negative effect on your overall style. Monotony is a drain on a good, fashionable wardrobe, and mixing it up, trying on different looks, and being adventurous, are great ways to upgrade your style. Keep it interesting; don’t repeat the same looks each day, but instead incorporate some new looks into your wardrobe on a regular basis to keep it fresh.
5. Wear Clothes That Fit
The fit of your clothes can completely make or break your outfit. Clothes that don’t fit, no matter how nice they are, will make you look dishevelledand don’t demonstrate a concern for your appearance. When buying a suit, make sure to go for slim-cut trousers and jackets so that nothing looks too baggy. To ensure that your clothes fit you well, you might want to consider investing in a custom-tailored suit, which will meet your exact measurements. Learn About Our Master Suit Offer »
6. Invest in Good Quality Shoes
Like the earlier rule about choosing quality materials, the quality of the shoes you wear is important too. If you’re wearing casual, worn-out shoes, then it’s time for a style change. Fine leather dress shoes are a great option if you’re looking to upgrade your style. Classic shoes like a fine pair of brogues or oxfords will make you look sharp. Another alternative are Chelsea boots, which are very popular in suede this season. Go for simple, classic colours like brown, tan, and black.
7. Add Some Colour
A good wardrobe shouldn’t be afraid to have some fun. While traditional colours such as black, navy, and grey are timeless options, adding colour into your wardrobe can help kick up your style a notch. Avoid colours that are overly bright or loud; you want to choose colours that, while adding a bit of punch, won’t derail your outfit. This fall season try warmer colours like mustard, burgundy, and olive green. They’ll help spice up your wardrobe but are also very fashion forward.
