In this modern age of loungewear and a more laid-back take on how people carry themselves, it’s no wonder that streetwear and casual wear have become more and more prominent. Thus, looking sharp has become less of a common thing. But let’s all be real, looking dapper or sharp is still the best way to go in certain events. When attending a formal party or get-together, you want to look your best. It’s good to be comfortable and to feel free with whatever you wear, but making some effort to look dapper or formal can leave a better impression. When you look at your best, people are more likely to respect you. This is because you have taken the time to put the effort on how you look.
In this article, we’ll share with you six tips as a guide on how to look sharp. These are perfect for times you need to make a great impression. But also, just to look and feel your best in every possible way at any occasion.
Wear a stunning timepiece
The timepiece on your arm can serve as, well, what it is, to tell the time. But it can also make a beautiful arm candy. A striking timepiece from Emporio Armani is a great way to add a finishing touch to your suit or outfit. A high-quality watch will last you for years to come, so it’s truly worth the investment! It can also make a great heirloom someday. So, get a watch that suits your personality. Choose one with hardware or leatherwear that can match with a lot of outfits in your wardrobe collection. You’ll surely get a ton of use from it.
Get a good haircut
If you want to look sharp, having dishevelled hair might not be the best choice. Although you can always go for a slicked-back hair look, a good haircut can make you look more presentable. Scout for a reputable salon with a good stylist when getting a haircut. You can also show photos of the hairstyle you want to achieve. Sometimes, getting the perfect go-to haircut is a trial-and-error process. Be patient if the first few tries aren’t the best. Ask your barber or stylist to help you with maintaining your new ‘do. You’ll get the hang of it in no time!
Invest in a good suit
A suit is a great investment since you can use it to many events. There are many readily available suits out there for you to buy. But having a suit tailored especially for you is worth it. You don’t need a lot of suits in your wardrobe collection, you just need a few sets that you can mix and match. You can match a pair of dark grey pants with a light blue jacket. Anything goes and you can experiment with this. Just make sure that your colour palette goes well together.
Get a good pair of dress shoes
A good pair of leather shoes can last you for years. With proper care and maintenance, you’ll get a lot of use from a good pair of leather kicks. You don’t need a ton of pairs, but you have to make sure that the ones you choose are versatile. Get a pair or two in a neutral colour so you can easily pair them with most (even all) of your outfits. Leather shoes can be the icing on top to your outfit, so get good colours and styles.
Add a leather belt
Whether you’re wearing a full-blown dapper suit or you just want to tuck in your dress shirt, you need a leather belt to complete your look. A leather belt is also one accessory that can make your outfit well put-together. Get one in black or brown to match with the majority of the items on your wardrobe. Whether it has silver, gold, or even black hardware, just make sure it compliments your look.
Your body type is a given. You don’t need to be super muscular or lean, but just be healthy. Get a gym membership or do yoga at home. If your body is healthy, so is your mind and spirit. And all this will make you look your best. Stay in shape, even if your build is big, just keep track of your weight and be mindful of what you eat. When you’re healthy, it shows in the way you carry yourself.
