It is great to be under 25. Life back then used to be different: living like a real adult, making money (not asking for it), facing new decisions & challenges, and last but not the least being judged non-stop on your IMAGE. This one is a big deal.
Well, here’s the truth – your image is more important than you may have been thought.
If you want to make an impact on this world and start strong while you’re young, then you must be seen as a person who can make an impact. You should not let clothing issues get in the way of your reputation (both in and out of the office). Just follow these 10 style tips for young men below.
1. Have Self-Confidence
Style completely depends on a confident attitude. Self-confidence not only helps you engage with women but also is an internal driving force for remembering what you stand for and who are you are.
2. Value Style & Image
Let’s just face the inconvenient truth: books are always judged by their covers. Appearance does matter. This is especially true when it comes to first impressions.
A good personality is absolutely important. But some people won’t can’t see past your lackluster “cover.” To absolutely nail first impressions, your image and style must work within society’s system of what’s expected of young professionals – what’s acceptable.
Dress so that you can easily get those precious seconds to make your case, sell a thought, and influence others.
Stick to clean, crisp, and well-fitted clothing. It encourages people to take you more seriously. Any young lawyer, doctor, consultant or salesman must understand this.
3. Level-Up Your Footwear
Do you still wear sports shoes all the time? It is time to explore some other options. Because it boils down to a traditional school of thought which is still alive these days: you can judge a man by his shoes.
Invest in a pair of high-quality dress shoes. It’s a classic type of footwear that works for nearly all occasions. A pair of great leather shoes is one of the best investments – provided it’s comfortable and durable to wear for many years.
4. Take Care Of Your Clothing
Being young means there’s less disposable income. Budgeting is a must. But that doesn’t mean you won’t keep your clothes in great shape.
Buy things such as shoe trees for your shoes, wooden hangers for your suits, a reliable iron, and detergent.
Know how to iron your shirt properly, wash and dry certain fabrics or materials, as well as treating stains on your clothes safely.
5. Choose Quality Over Quantity
A wardrobe that’s oversaturated with items that are either difficult to match with one another or don’t feel good to wear is of no use.
It is pretty much a dump where the good stuff gets lost in the mix. The rest has to be cleared or replaced. Aim to build your own interchangeable wardrobe which includes: a good core of blue and white dress shirts (the backbone of most sharp outfits), simple ties with dark shades of blue, green or red, trousers, jackets, shoes with the right colors and textures.
