If you go for a job interview, you will be screened for various parameters. Your qualifications, work experience, attitude, communication skills, family background. And most importantly how the candidate is ‘packaged’. Ultimately that creates the first impression which, it is said, is the last impression. Clothes do uplift a man’s personality and confidence level in a big way.
One stylist has rightly said “Fashion keeps changing, while style lasts forever”. Here are some constant style tips which can be experimented with changing trends.
You often hate to see yourself in the mirror. The clothes don’t fit and look like the clothes are a burden on you. Means it weighs you down. Or is it tight fitting and keeps you uncomfortable and fudging all the time.
Try it on and see if it fits you perfectly. The clothes should embrace you and align effortlessly with your body contour. Always opt for the ‘slim-fit’ cut. Be it shirt, t-shirts, jeans or trousers. Nowadays it is available in classic cut or slim fit. It will make you look slimmer and smarter. If your body is not the athlete type, try one size bigger and that will fit you perfect.
Finally if it does not work, find a good tailor who will stitch it to your body measurements. Avoid online tailors, since the measurements you send may not be perfect.
Color has a big significance in making a style statement. Firstly, one has to understand the skin color and tone and what colors suit and accentuate the body.
A little variation and adventurism in color combination gives a whole new look. Traditional khaki trousers with a pastel shade shirt are a safe option. To go for the kill try patterned trousers with a white or plain sea blue shirt. In winter, the wools must complement the clothing. Button down collars in pin stripes is still in vogue in the corporate world.
3. Blazer is a trail blazer
The young corporate crowd considers formal suits to be worn only on extreme corporate functions. Blazer is a trend setter that differentiates the men from the boys. It is perfect to get the business casual look. It can be in basic colors like navy blue, grey or brown. They are available in a range of fabrics, cuts and designs. Any blazer will match with a slim fit jeans and casual or formal shirt. Ideal for business or casual wear.
4. Hair styling:
Hair styling adds to the overall look. It is necessary that you visit a professional barber at a salon and work out what hair style suits your persona best.
Make it simple with short hair all over with slightly lengthy hair on the top. Or, spiking your hair on top is easy and trendy style and suits all dresses. Or, getting sides slicked backwards to give a sporty David Beckham look.
Add the right accessories to add zing and make a long lasting statement. Leather belts, cuff links, silk pocket squares, sun glasses, branded high end watch. Scarves are also considered the in thing. It is easy to add bold colors, patterns, and textures. But in places with tropical climate it is preferred in winter.
Wearing the right attire appropriate for the occasion makes sense. One must be with the times. You create a lasting impression. Keep upgrading your style in tune with the latest trends.
