When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, the main goal is to better ourselves.
Many people choose resolutions in order to improve the way they look, with fad diets or workouts as their choice to achieve those goals. Still, while everyone should try to lead healthy lifestyles, an element that is just as impactful on your “look” is your overall style!
Even if you are in the best shape of your life, the wrong style choices could have people looking at you sideways. Here are a few tips to upgrade your style game in 2019.
Wear the right fit
Men come in all different shapes and sizes and that should be celebrated. No matter what category you fall under, the biggest factor in whether or not you “pull off a look” is the right fit! Whether you’re in a full tuxedo for a wedding, or just a simple t-shirt and jeans at the mall, you should consider dressing for your body shape. When shopping in the future, make sure to keep fit in mind. If you already have some articles of clothing that you really love, but don’t fit the best, you can always take them to a tailor.
Develop a better grooming routine
All the time and money you spend on picking out the right outfits is devalued if you don’t have a proper grooming routine. Nothing detracts from the perfect attire like a messy haircut or bad skin. Since everybody has different skin and hair types, preferences and conditions, there is no universal routine that every man should follow. Instead, find what works best for you and stick with it. If you need help, you should consult a dermatologist or physician who could prescribe medications for hair loss or acne.
Be confident in what you wear
When putting together an outfit, it’s important to choose something that gives off confidence. Not only will confidence boost your self-esteem and make you feel good, but it will garner more respect from others and make your style look that much better. The best part is, confidence can come in many forms, like a cutting-edge trend or pop of color. Find out what colors suit you best and have some fun with it.
Clean out your closet
If you want to buy new clothes in order to upgrade your style in 2019, you’re going to need to make some space. Closet space, that is. It’s important to have the right outfit for every occasion, but that doesn’t mean that you should hoard clothes for an infinite amount of time. Go through your closet and take a hard look at what’s inside. If it no longer fits or you haven’t worn it in over six months, consider donating it or passing it down to someone else. Only in the rarest cases, like actually owning a tuxedo, should you hold onto something you aren’t wearing often.
The last thing to absolutely put your style over the top in 2019 are stapled accessories! The right fit and a solid grooming routine will ensure that you are looking your best, but a classy watch or sunglasses will set you apart from the pack. Just be careful not to overdo it. One or two accessories will be subtle, yet sharp, whereas a bunch of bracelets and necklaces will just come off tacky. Just like your clothes, make sure to fit your sunglasses with your face shape.
Overall, make sure that your accessories compliment your look.
