Some men are completely indifferent to fashion. They would wear the same shoes that they would wear on the basketball court as part of their street clothes. Their favorite fashion combination is jeans and t-shirt. That’s not a problem if you are comfortable with that way of dressing, but if you care what other people think of you, then you should think more about what you wear.
As wrong as it may sound, other people judge us by the way that we look. They would give or withhold respect based on appearances. A great part of how we are seen by others is in the way that we dress. So, if you care about what others think of you, then you should start caring in your turn about what you are wearing. That might sound ridiculous but that’s how the world works and if you want to be part of it, you need to play by the rules.
This is where a lot of guys make their biggest mistake. Some occasions call for dressing in a specific way. Wedding, funerals, birthday parties, all those events that you would have to attend calls for a specific style of dressing. Some might think that dressing down on certain occasions show a certain sense of quirkiness and imagination. It does not. Going to a wedding in jeans and t-shirt is not imaginative. It just shows that you have no style.
The Label isn’t Everything
You don’t have to buy expensive clothes all the time. Buying branded articles of clothing and accessories would not guarantee that you would become stylish. You can achieve having a sense of style even if you are not rich. You can show who you are and still look good while wearing inexpensive clothes.
Some guys underestimate the value of having and wearing a good pair of shoes. If you want to look good then invest in at least a good pair of dress shoes. The great thing about dress shoes is that you can pair them with dress pants and even jeans when you want to. Cheap shoes would look exactly what they cost and you cannot impress anyone with those. Stop wearing basketball shoes or running shoes when you are not playing or exercising.
In the same way that you would have to at least own a pair of good shoes, you should also invest in a suit. A single-breasted jacket matched with the right kind of pants should be okay for starters. Go for traditional colors that would not go out of style. Gray and navy blue are probably the safest colors that you can go for. Don’t try some crazy hue.
It would not matter how expensive you clothes are if you do not keep those in god condition. Always make sure that they are clean, ironed and your shoes well-polished.
These are just some of the things that you need to keep in mind when you want to be considered to be a stylish person.
