When guys start looking to refine their fashion sense and start dressing better, it’s easy to think that standing out means buying clothes that have wild patterns, bright colors, or expensive designer names on the labels. While you’ll certainly stand out if you dress like that, it won’t always be in a good way, and it might get you the wrong kind of attention.
If you want your style to stand out (in a good way), it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to dress like you’re fresh off the runway in Paris. The art of dressing well is all in the details: The more you pay attention to the small things, the better you’ll look. After all, it’s not about a specific shirt or a specific pair of pants — it’s how they make you look and feel that matters.
If you’re looking for a way to refine your wardrobe and really stand out, here are 10 classic style tips that will make you look great.
1. Commit to good hygiene and grooming
If you want to improve your style, it starts in the bathroom. The most basic of all hygiene advice is that you need to shower regularly and brush your teeth, but there’s much more to it than simply staying clean. Spending a little more time each week on grooming will give you a significant payoff in the looks department.
Schedule a regular haircut, keep your eyebrows trimmed, and if you have any facial hair, make sure you keep it neat. You’ll look better, feel better, and have more confidence when you’re walking down the street.
