Fashion and style are often associated with women. But that doesn’t mean men can’t dive into these areas as well. If you want to be more stylish and put-together, apply the following tips to your routine and watch yourself transform into a well-groomed man.
Pamper Your Skin After Shaving
Aftershave isn’t enough to bring out your skin’s full potential. Make sure you exfoliate at least two times a week to prevent ingrown hairs, and to keep your skin soft. Use a facial moisturizer after you shave to hydrate your skin and maintain its smoothness.
Pamper Your Beard
If you’re not a shaver, make sure you take the time to groom your beard. Get your beard its own comb or brush, and invest in a high-quality beard oil to keep your beard tamed. Keep a beard trimmer in your bathroom as well to help keep your beard look clean and well-maintained. If yours isn’t growing fast enough check out supplements like beardvitamin.com.
Find Clothing that Fits
Baggy suits and too short pants don’t flatter your appearance or make you look grown-up. Look for shirts and pants that aren’t too tight, but fit your body’s natural shape. Don’t be afraid of tailoring either. You can get fit suited specifically for you this way.
Focus on Specific Pieces
You’ll have an easier time matching your clothes and layering if you invest in simple and elegant pieces. Staples that you should have in your wardrobe include: plain white button-up shirts, simple sweaters, white and black undershirts, trousers, and black dress shoes. Make sure you have the basics before you start to go all out.
Accessorize Simple Outfits
Although you’ll have simple and classy clothing to wear, you can spice them up and stand out by leveraging your accessories. For example, a silver pocket watch instead of a wristwatch can step up your style and make your appearance more classic. Pocket squares can do wonders to tie in needed color to a bland suit, and dress up uniquely with personalized tees and tie clips.
Know Your Ties
A tie is a classic accessory anyone can use. Tying a tie is the ultimate skill to master if you want to become more fashionable. Since there are ties in countless designs, you can find ones that fit your style.
Build up your wardrobe and your confidence by making your new style and beauty regime a part of your lifestyle.
