To have confidence and give the right impression, it’s absolutely crucial to be stylish and put your best foot forward. Having style doesn’t always come easy, a bit of thought and effort is required. If you want your wardrobe and accessories to make you appear more elegant and classy, just remember these three style tips:
Wear a Simple, Tailored Suit
Nothing says luxury – or success – like a tailored suit. But keep in mind, whenever you wear a suit it must be altered to fit your exact measurements. Never purchase a suit right off the rack, no matter how tempting it may be. It only takes a few seconds to get measured, and a suit only looks good if it fits you perfectly. Otherwise, it will be unflattering. A suit that fits you well will be more comfortable, too, and you will be more confident wearing it. Besides, suits are not cheap so get your money’s worth, and have it altered to fit your exact size and fit.
Also, stay away from suits that are patterned or a non-neutral color. This will ensure you can get a lot of wear out of it and it will go with everything you have in your wardrobe. If you like to wear color, save it for your shirt or tie. You can never go wrong with black, grey, or navy.
Invest in a High-Quality Watch
A watch is one of the most classic accessories for men but the type you wear can either upgrade or downgrade your style. Always select the highest-quality watch you can afford. You don’t necessarily have to have diamonds circling the watch face, although they certainly are an elegant touch. Select one in a color that will go well with the other jewelry you wear often, like a wedding band.
Watches aren’t just a fashion statement, they are important for all business men to keep up with the time and avoid being late. You may find yourself in situations where checking to see what time it is on your phone may not appropriate, so a watch is an easy solution.
Watches don’t necessarily have to be flashy or worth a small fortune to give you confidence. Whether made of gold, platinum, or titanium, you need a watch made of high-quality materials, and it must fit well. To remind you of your successes, you can add diamonds that represent achievements or business milestones, and every time you look at it will give you a boost of confidence.
Add Cufflinks to Your Outfit
Cufflinks instantly dress up your outfit like nothing else can. While small and simple additions, people will take notice. They are one of the best ways to show the world you have style and class in an understated way. What’s also great about cufflinks is that they aren’t just fashion accessories, they are practical alternatives to buttons.
Cufflinks aren’t just for suits, either. Wear them with a nice button-down shirt to easily add a special touch. Enough cannot be said for the way they can positively affect people’s impression of you. Wear them on a first date or a business meeting. That little attention to detail can gain you respect and send the message that you are meticulous about details.
Of course, they are absolutely essential for white or black or black-tie events. How dressy they need to be will depend on how formal the event is. Since white tie events are more formal, the best option is a cufflink made with gold, silver, or diamonds.
