If you feel like your wardrobe lacks personality, and your sense of style is looking a little flat, don’t you worry, because reinventing your look is easier than you think.
Stagnation is a familiar enemy for many men out there. Wearing the same thing day in and day out can make your look feel tired – it’s strange how what we wear affects how we feel about ourselves.
The year is still fresh, so now’s as good a time as any to do a little reinventing. Here’s a quick and easy guide to do just that.
Out with the old
Before you begin recreating your style, you need to get rid of all the stuff that’s not helping with your current look. Too many of us are guilty of hoarding items in our wardrobes that we’ll never wear again — like old T-shirts that have lost their life. Let them go!
By saying this, however, you can hold onto essential items, like basics that can be incorporated into your new look.
Find your style inspiration
So you know that you want to reinvent your style, but you don’t exactly know what you want it to look like. The best way to find out is by looking for inspiration from style icons, social fashion pages and great blogs (like ours).
Remember to consider your lifestyle and working environment, and make sure that your new look complements these.
While you’re becoming an expert in your new look, start with the basic pieces of that style. Try working with items that you already have and experiment with subtle changes. A new pair of shoes or adding some men’s accessories to your outfit can make a big difference in helping you achieve a certain look.
Small additions such as this will provide you with a good base to expand on.
Upgrading your look can be a costly affair — budget yourself. Rather than splashing on anything that fits your new style, be selective and choose pieces that work well together. Cohesion in your wardrobe will maximise the versatility of every item.
If the look that you are going for is more expensive, try saving on basics (like plain T-shirts) and invest in statement items like jackets or shoes. Your new style will likely depend more on these items.
What else can you do to reinvent your style?
Reinventing your style does not only involve what you wear. A new hairstyle or improving your physique also plays a key role in creating a new style.
Many gentlemen out there pick a hairstyle and stick to that their whole lives – change it up, because your hairstyle will correlate with the rest of your reinvented style.
Likewise, changing your physique will also change your look and how your clothes fit.
