Fashion is a dynamic global industry and has been a prominent part of thousands of lives. For many, the way we express ourselves is seen by the way we dress. For others, the first impression of people they come in contact with is seen through the clothes they wear. Either which way, what you choose to wear is a symbol of who you are as a person.
More often than usual, we dress according to how we feel, be it excited, or sad there is an outfit associated with every mood and every occasion. The process of deciding what to wear and how to wear it can be more tedious than expected.

#1: Get the right fit
90% of your style problems are solved with well-tailored clothes. Most men find comfort in oversized and baggy clothes. This throws away their figure and portrays a rather sloppy look. Having the right fit can leave you looking effortlessly stylish is a plain white tee and a pair of jeans.
#2: Focus on classic style before working on personal style
Don’t try to create an original style when what you have now is not working out for you, if it was, you wouldn’t find yourself reading this article. So, focus on mastering the classic style then slowly add your personal touch.
#3: Stick to solid neutral colours
Neutral colours are easy to match and are not overpowering. They are self-working and are considered to be a very masculine palette. The colours keep you refined, serious and well-put-together.
#4: The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the forgotten sweetness of low prices
Always buy quality that lasts over cheap clothes that are ruined after one wash.
#5: Step out of your comfort zone
Gradually introduce something trendy or unique into your cupboard that you never thought that you would have worn. Add something to your style that you were nervous about. Slowly but surely it will start to feel more natural.
