From a Boy to a Man, Simple Tips for a Polished Look
You want to look elegant and polished? Do you still look like a boy among men? We have some tips for you that will make you look like a man and not a boy.
The first and the most basic tip starts with you! Decide for certain what you want to look like, a change in wardrobe is essentially a change in your outlook and it will, surprisingly, affect your life. Specifically the places you go to. Start off with getting rid of your T-Shirts. College days are over and you really don’t need T-shirts anymore. Even if you are in college, an early change in wardrobe will give you an edge over your mates. To dress like men, know that it all starts from professionalism, dress to feel good but also dress to impress. Throw away the hoodies and start with jackets, wear shirts, different colors, tucked in or tucked out, and if nostalgia for T-Shirts kicks back in, try a Polo shirt or the likes.
Footwear are perhaps underrated when it comes to dressing like a man, often running shoes are worn by many men with jeans etc. Out tip; a pair of dress shoes makes a lasting impression, casual leather shoes go great with jeans and dress pants. So leave the running shoes to running and try on something more classy. Keep sandals away too, unless you are on a beach, a sandal in men’s fashion domain is a call for help.
A tip for your jeans, try darker colors and well fitted jeans are great, simple yet elegant. There are other options, you can try baggy jeans, boot cut, low rise or skinny, but if your body is an average type, with no extra fats nor anorexia, a simple fitted jeans trouser has never went out of fashion for as long as one can remember.
And while jeans are the evergreen men’s fashion friend since for ever, a tip on this could be to go beyond Denim, and try a well cut classic trousers. It gives you a more sharper look and because in young crowds its not much common, you can get away with an edge over other aspiring men. For warm weathers, a wool or a cotton trouser can work miracles, its light than jeans and sharper.
Now, since you have decided to look like a man in fashion, and not a sloppy boy, though jeans is your best friend, a friend in need is a suit. Have at least one suit in your wardrobe, properly taken care of, but never just buy a suit. A suit is a fully fledged statement, you need to buy a properly fitted suit, for that you will need a tailor. Just buying one off of shelves might either be too loose or too tight and in such situations, you will do worse than a collage kid. So when being a suit, an honest tip there is, get its fitting done buy a tailor.
To dress like a man, you need to think like a man, the transfer from boyhood to manhood might just begin with a change in your wardrobe. Think older, try to dress around 5 years older than your age.
A bonus tip here of course, in addition to your dress, your hairstyle makes an impression, go for a classic look, shorter or medium sized hair, properly cleaned and a little bit of hair gel, or hair cream won’t do any harm.
