Style can be transformative. One day you're a slob, and the next day you're a dashing head-turner. This can be accomplished with a colored tailored shirt (your best color) underneath a great jacket, worn with a pair of wool slacks and a pair of leather shoes (your belt and shoes are the same color). Style is a form of communication. You are telling people what you think of yourself. A put together appearance tells the world (whether it's true, or not) you have confidence, credibility, and self worth. It will give you the edge every time! When you know you look good, you feel good.
Best Way to Look Like an Executive
When you wear the colors that make your skin look radiant and healthy, you're going to look younger, healthier, and more energetic.
Buy Fewer Pieces, Spend More Money on each Piece
- Cashmere sweater
- Leather-soled dress shoe - streamlined sole or chunky sole, your choice! Keep your shoes polished using Kiwi cream polishes. It's a time-honored ritual for good reason.
- A polo shirt underneath a suit jacket -- wearing a polo shirt in your strongest color underneath a suit is surprisingly, casually elegant
- Streamlined, pin-striped suit
- Dark-wash jeans
Shop at a Trendy Menswear Store to Find Out What's In This Year
You can always buy your clothes at H&M if you are on a tight budget, but if you want to look hip and turn some heads, walk into the more expensive men's stores and note the styles and colors they're showing this year. Then, go buy some lookalike, less expensive pieces. However, I'm still a big believer in the classic, timeless styles of good taste. So, go easy on the trends! If you look terrible in a fedora hat, don't wear it.
