Ways to look better Instantly
1. Find Good Suit and wear it
We have become a culture that considers an ill fitting, button down tucked into an old pair of khakis dressed up. Well, its not. Walking into the room and being the guy in the suit really makes you stand out in the best way possible. That can only build confidence, which leads to more success, which leads to a more fulfilling life, which leads to ... well, you get the point. I suggest a nice rich navy because it will go with just about everything. And a nice suit doesnt have to break the bankanymore. With options likeAlton Lane,J. Crew, andSuitsupply, you can find a quality suit that fits you the way it should for around $600.
2. Tailor Your Clothing all of it
Nothing says you dont care quite like clothing that doesnt fit. There was a time when a tailor was as important in a mans roledex as his barber, his bartendar, and his best friend. Somewhere along the line we started to think of a tailored look as a negative thing. Its not, and it never was. A well tailored wardrobe will likely cost you less in the long run. A shirt can cost you next to nothing and spending the extra change to make it fit properly will fool everyone into thinking you spent a lot more than you really did. Look to sites likeYelpto help you get an idea where the tailors near you are and if it would be worth the trip.
3. Step Up Your Shoe Care
Whether its high shine, cream shine, or brushed suede, keeping your shoes in good shape will elevate your overall apperance. Our feet are the foundation of our bodies. Our shoes are the foundation of our outfits. We dont suggest running a marathon in your old beat up trainers, and we dont suggest going on a blind date in an old beat up pair of Oxfords. Whether your shoes are$95or$895, a shoe that has been cared for will last longer and make a better impression. Also, the guy that takes care of your shoes is called aCobbler, not a shoe guy. Hell appreciate that you know that.
4. Match Your Shoe Belt and Accessories
Match doesnt have to meanmatch.If wearing a full suit or a more formal outfit, the leather or suede of the belt should match in color and sheen to the shoe, or as close as you can get.If wearing a more casual suit or outfit with something like aJack Purcell try a neutral leather,canvas, or mixed material wovenbelt for a cool look without trying to be too matchy matchy. Adding a bag, some gloves, or a hat?When in doubt, keep tones together (various shades of brown leather, but no black, or various blacks and grays, no browns).
5. Chose bolde Sock but not a crazy Sock
A lot can be said for a solid sock in a bold color. Once it gets busy with a lot of stripes, designs or polka dots, it can get distracting and take you from modern to messy. If you are not sure, I suggest stick to a classic and simple sock choice in a bold color. Personally, I have made my go to sock a nice cherry red. I put it with everything and just say it matches. Because it is a primary color, it tends to be bold without contrasting from most outfits. Dont like red? Thats fine. Find something you like and try it out. If it doesnt work, try something else. Luckily socks tend to be an inexpensive way to have fun with an outfit. An easy way to mix and match is to go withUniQlosolid socks priced at an easy to obtain four for $12.90.
6. Invest in a Mans Watch
We cant all afford theRolex SubmarinerorCartier Tank, but there are myriad reputable timepieces out there that are classic and refined without being too expensive.Movado,Tissot,TudorandShinolaare just a few to get you started. Watches are a symbol of success wether you want to admit it or not, so investing in a decent one isnt a bad idea. I like a steel bracelet with a neutral face to start, then, for the next one, maybe venture into a leather or croc accent. The goal is to establish a watch wardrobe that will go with just about anything.
7. Upgrade Your Scent
There are a lot of fragrances to choose in the world. My suggestion is find two that work and stick with them. Fragrances are typically priced based on concentration. Simply put, perfume is the most concentrated, Eau de Toilette is next, then comes cologne. Dont let the words fool you, guys can use perfume as well, you just dont need as much since it stays with you longer. It is a common misconception that women wear perfume and men wear cologne. My personalfavorites of late areOud Wood by Tom Ford,Terre dHermes by Hermes,Corduroy byZirh, andColonia by Aqua DiParma. These are great, full bodied scents that transition through seasons.
8. Moisturizer with SPF Every Day
We are in the modern age. Leave thecaveman method to your diet, not your skincare routine. If I could convince you to do ONE thing in the morning beyond washing your hair and body with the same bar of soap, it would be putting on a moisturizer with an SPF of 30. This simple addition will not only get rid of dry flaky skin but will help you age a little more gracefully. An easy and affordable pick up isAltchekMD Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.Just a dab will do, and it will be worth it in the long run.
9. Groom Your Hair EveryWhere
Yes, everywhere.Eyebrows, Ears, Nose, Back, Chest, Balls... Im not saying you need to shave and trim everything away. There is not one formula that works for all guys, but the vast majority of men can benefit from simply being aware and on top of unnecessary or unsightly hair. As we age, hair starts getting in the way of things. Amending our routine can really make a big difference in our outward appearance. I would assume you know how to use a razor, and tweezers are pretty self explanitory, so a suggestion that will give you the most bang for your buck beyond the everyday is thePhillips Norelco MultiGroom 5100. Dont confuse this with over manscaping, just a friendly suggestion to keep it all in check.
10. Find a manly Concealer
Just get over it. Its a thing a lot of guys are doing and if done properly no one will ever know. It takes 60 seconds in the morning and will helpmake you look like you actually got to bed early last night. Many companies are making special products especialy for men, includingTom Ford,Evolution Man,Lab SeriesandMenaji. Give it a shot, I bet youll find its notthatbad after all.
