3 Secrets To Stylishly Stand Out
1. Dress According To Your Message
It’s always good before choosing what to wear for the day to think “What message do I want to send?” That message paves the way for what you require in terms of fabric, function and fit.
If your goal is to make people believe you’re a force to be reckoned with, you need clothing that shows it. You need an outfit that represents the best version of yourself. It should stand out and exude power. For every item of clothing you need to ask: Does it fit my body? Does it fit my personality? Have I practiced wearing it?
Feeling awesome in your clothes is what allows you to experience enclothed cognition. This is where the brain channels that positive feeling into (1) a better performance and (2) a boost in confidence.
That’s why custom clothing matters. It’s how you can get clothes that perfectly fit and complement you.
2. Take A Twist On Classic Shoes
A guy who’s got the best shoes will edge out the all the other men in the room. He’s known for having great attention to detail and looking good from head to toe.
If you can figure out a way to “twist” your shoe style so it works better with your outfit – you’ll amp up your style even more. So you want to pay attention to certain features that are worth exploring:
- Types of leather: cognac, suede
- Shoe design: wholecuts, broguing
- Accents: laces, buckles, tassels
- Color contrast: two-tone leather combinations (such as Derby shoes), contrast with other items of clothing (like Cognac shoes and a navy suit)
3. Make “Casual” Look Amazing
Going casual doesn’t have to mean being on the same level as everyone else. You want to be creative with your outfit for those parties or events that don’t have strict dress codes. Below you’ll find some clothing items you can capitalize on.
The vest on its own is a look that seems to have caught on lately. You can try wearing a colored vest over a white dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up. This lets the vest become a focal point unlike when you pair it with a suit or jacket.
Compared to silk ties which are more common, wool ties offer some interesting textures and go well with other soft garments like coats or sweaters.
You might want a tiny bit of bling to spice up your style. But be careful not to go overboard with jewelry since it can look distracting and pretentious. Subtlety is the key.
