Accessories are on the top of the list for men as well. Specially, gear for your waist, feet, wrist and head. Don’t make the mistake of wearing pants without a belt; once you leave university, there is no excuse for this fashion faux pas. Shoes are the crowning glory of any outfit, and it’s imperative that they match your belt as well as possible. Try to have a variety of styles and colors, with at least one pair in an uncommon hue such as red, blue or green ( and make sure you wear it well). The key is finding and wearing what suits your body and face, an choosing the right accessories to enhance quality clothing. When combined with impeccable personal hygiene and a modest grooming routine, a smart wardrobe can help you inch closer to ring a poor lady’s Bond 🙂
A timepiece will further enhance your look, especially when paired with a suit and in a corporate or boardroom environment. Quality watches command respect. Top it off with a hat appropriate for the occasion. Suit-and trench coat type of day? Toss on a fedora or a trilby. Lazy day at the beach? Straw boater it is. Paper route?be classy and wear a newsy. And if you really want to go the extra mile, consider pocket squares, stopwatches, monogrammed handkerchiefs, and suspenders.
Hygiene and grooming are arguably more important than the clothes. After all, presentation is paramount( what good is filet mignon if you serve it out of a garbage pail? Proper dental and oral hygiene is a good start, and most men could do with a bit of follicular trimming. Know your body and do what’s required to keep yourself squeaky clean and presentable- no more, no less. Use a good, non -alcoholic facial scrub to keep your pores open and fight body odor with a gel-based anti-perspirant (deodorant spray will not do the job).
A touch of cologne can also go a long way toward enhancing your appeal, but don’t overdo it. Remember fragrances are meant to be sensual and understated. A woman should be close to you to know you smell good. Gucci released its latest fragrance for men, named ‘Guilty’ is worth a try. Old timers can stick to their Issey Miyake colognes. One spray shared between the wrists( spray on one and touch them together- no friction) and one spray on the neck from about an arms length away will suffice. If you wish you can use a third spray ( onto your palms) to dab small amounts behind your ears and over your heart. These are all places where your pulse can be felt, and applying cologne to these areas will make the scent last longer. Toss In a solid fitness routine and diet to stay in shape, and you’re on course for good living.
Every boy grows up. It will be very quick before they trade their remote controlled-toys for a nice outfit, for the Prom. Their anxiety to look good on their first date and having the best ride for that evening is all they can think of. Cliched as it may sound, it’s the possession of traits like accountability and strength of character that separate the men from the boys. And it’s never too late to better yourself. The desire for constant improvement is a good thing to have. Used well, it will serve you in pinpointing and improving on your weaknesses. So what are you waiting for? Take responsibility for your actions, brush up on the art of storytelling, invest In a well – cut suit and start enjoying your scotch.
