Know the Dress Code
Under or overdressing always feels awkward. When it comes to looking sharp, knowing the dress code is the key! No matter what event you’re planning for, take the time to assess the environment and occasion. As a general rule, the easiest way to create a sharp look is to choose your trousers as the foundation for your outfit. For example, a pair of dress khakis are a staple piece for a business casual office space. For laidback gatherings like a backyard barbeque, seersucker shorts are the better fit.
Choose Quality Over Quantity
Choosing low-quality pieces in bulk may seem like an easy way to save money. However, over time, you can find yourself needing to replace these items more often, causing you to spend more than you planned! Cheaply made clothing often loses its luster after only a few washes. By investing in higher-quality pieces for your wardrobe, you can look forward to less shopping and more clothing that wears better with time. When you choose high-quality basics, not only will others notice the difference, but you will feel the difference every time you get dressed.
Get It Tailored
When you invest in a quality wardrobe, remember to put just as much into tailoring! Even the most luxurious suit can look tacky if it wears too big or too small. To avoid this style pitfall, always take your measurements before any purchase you make. Knowing your measurements allows you to get away from the frustrations of subjective sizing and start finding pieces tailored perfectly for you. If you are between sizes, sizing up is generally best. By doing so, you can easily have your clothing adjusted to match your sleeve length, waist size, or anything else that needs attention.
Choose Your Accessories Wisely
Just like with your clothing, it is wise to invest in high-quality accessories. Once your outfit is complete, these accessories will add a new dimension to your look. Start by adding a few simple and versatile pieces, such as a gold or silver timepiece and a black or brown leather belt. By keeping your accessories simple, you can easily transition them from casual looks to professional outfits. Remember, dressing to impress is all in the details!
