\n Don’t Wear Dirty, Damaged or Worn Out Clothing\n\n \n\n \nThis might be obvious, but wearing clothing that is either worn, torn or dirty can negatively affect the way you are perceived. It can make you seem careless and not well put together. Wearing clothing that is clean, ironed, and that doesn’t have any visible tears or holes will instantly lift your style to a whole new level, even if you’re going grocery shopping.\n \n\n Wear Clothing That Fits Properly\n\n \n \nWearing clothing that fit’s you right will automatically elevate the style of your outfit. Although baggy clothing can be trendy for some, as a general rule, opt for clothing that fit your body properly; not too baggy and not too tight. For men’s tops, your shoulders should fit comfortably, and sleeves should come down to your wrists. Men’s pants should not be too long and should have enough room in the crotch to sit without feeling tight or too loose. You can check out the GAZMAN size guide to help measure for the perfect fit.\n \n\n Opt for Timeless Pieces Rather than Shopping Trends\n\n \nAlthough clothing trends can be fun and unique, opting for classic and timeless pieces is a sure-fire way to always stay stylish and well put together. Clothing items like chinos, a long sleeve shirt and a casual jacket or blazer will always be in fashion, meaning that no matter what event you attend, you will always meet the dress code. This is not to say that you can’t buy trending pieces here and there, but eventually, they will go out of style in a season or two, so it’s best to stick with classic items that can be worn time and time again.\n \n\n Try a Minimalist Approach\n\n \n \n \nAlthough minimalism has been around for a while now, it is a great approach to have towards your wardrobe and overall style. The minimalist approach to clothing means that you have a few solid, stylish pieces that can be worn to any event – almost like a capsule wardrobe. It involves simples colours, styles and layering to achieve a stylish yet simple look. If you struggle with picking out your outfit, opt for a minimalist approach and choose items that have neutral colours and cuts and that can be worn to a multitude of occasions.\n \n\n Stay Away from Clashing Patterns\n\n \n \nWearing patterns can add a sense of preppy style to your outfit, elevating your look easily – however, you have to be cautious of clashing patterns. Anything with plaids, checkers, dots, stripes, etc, can all be very fashionable on their own, but mixed together can take your outfit from stylish and put together, to clashing and messy. When choosing an item of clothing with a pattern, make sure to pair it with block colours and tones, which will make the pattern stand out but keep you looking well dressed for any occasion.\n \n\n Learn How to Accessorise\n\n \nAccessories make a great addition to any outfit, but with most things, less is more. When choosing an accessory to add to your outfit, like a tie, a watch, pocket square, etc., keep it simple. Choose one or two items to accessories with. Too many accessories can make the outfit look overcrowded and slapped together, whereas a couple of distinct additions can add a sense of professionalism and classic style.\n \nIf you’re unsure about how many accessories are too many, limit your choices to just one or two – for example, a watch and a tie or cufflinks and a tie, and that way you can hit the dress code for every occasion without overcrowding your outfit with too many accessories.\n \n\n Don’t Be Afraid of Some Colour\n\n \n \n \nColoured clothing is an easy way to bring some fun and excitement to any outfit. Colours can be used to make bold statements and is a great way to hit fun party dress codes without having to mix patterns. Although colour can be a little daunting, sticking to one main colour, like a light orange or blue, and pairing it with a neutral tone, like beige pants or cream chinos can help you get a feel for colour without going overboard. A coloured sports jacket or rugby jumper is another fun way to intertwine some colour for a more formal setting and can always be removed if you don’t want to rock the coloured look anymore.\n \n\n Basic Grooming Goes a Long Way\n\n \n \n \nWhile your clothing can say a lot about who you are, if you’re looking unkempt, it can still make the outfit look put off. Keeping your beard trimmed and tidy, hair combed and styled, and a washed and moisturised face can all increase your overall style, even if your outfit might be plainer. Basic grooming will help you appear more professional and ready for the event, while someone who is not groomed will appear sloppy, regardless of their outfit.\n \n\n Wear Cologne (Or A Nice Smelling Deodorant)\n\n \nThe same with grooming, a nice smelling cologne or deodorant can take your outfit to the next level, and you only need a few sprays to change the game. How you smell to others can either make or break how you’re perceived, so smelling good, even if you’re going to a backyard BBQ, can make you the best-dressed guy there.\nIt doesn’t need to be an expensive scent either, just something that smells good will make a great addition to your grooming routine. Just make sure not to go too heavy with the cologne, as you don’t want to overpower anyone around you. Just a few sprays will do.\n \n\n Make Sure to Choose Clothing You Feel Comfortable In!\n\n \n\n\n \nThe best hack for looking good with minimal effort is to wear clothing that you feel comfortable and confident in. Confidence is the biggest and easiest way to look good without the hassle, and when you feel good about the clothing that you’re wearing, you automatically feel confident in yourself.\n \nThe people around you will instantly notice how good you look, just by your smile and air, because you feel secure in your clothing. Remember that no matter what, your clothing should be a representation of who you are, so pick items that reflect your personality and you’re already halfway there.\nDiscover the full range of clothing items online at GAZMAN now to take your outfits to the next level.
