Do you spend what seems like hours on your clothes, hair and make-up? Do you have a high fashion makeover kit tucked away in the closet ready to help you transform that drab, old clothes into something glamorous and fantastic?
Most of us believe we can achieve any look we want just by choosing the right clothes. But did you know that the “high fashion” makeover kit actually comprises just a few basic garments?
Leather, silk and lace will simply never go out of date, and will almost certainly remain in style for many years to come. Real high fashion, although hardly on a par with the catwalk testosteroneresses (which are, incidentally, to be avoided at all costs) still exude a certain look which is easily achieved in everyday life.
So, instead of going back to high style every six months or so, why not try following these simple ideas that will make a big difference to your clothes, hair and kudapoker style.
Get Your Basics Right First
Do you wish you had a plain winter white shirt? Oh, you’re so totally stuck in style isn’t that so? Well, instead of saving this linen shirt for colder days, why not consider trying an understated white shirt that will be the envy of all your friends.
A simple statement white shirt, with perhaps a simple logo on, will give you the benefit of being perfectly in sync with all your other semi formal items.
For semi formal events, you can use a blue or grey suit or the like but for a more formal occasion, white is a lovely choice but a bit more on the understated side.
You can of course purchase a high end designer white shirt (the perfect colour) but if you are looking for something a little more understated, the colours below are a good place to start:
â€¢ Wine – people who are fond of white linen shirts might enjoy a real white wine- it’s the colour of the summer so if you want to be seen in summer, white shirts are a clear winner
â€¢ Blue – look for shades that are close to a softer blue to avoid the aforementioned brights
â€¢ Grey – grey is a fantastic choice that will match many different shades of grey to give you a very refined look that is also very chic
â€¢ Other colours that some people feel better in include red and pink, yellow and even orange – all of which are appropriate colours for a shirt
Of course, if you’re feeling a little gloomy, then red and pink will bring aushed look to your face but remember, as long as it’s lighter shades, you can get away with a lot more than blue.
Once you have done that, you can move on to the fun bit: choosing accessories.
Accessories Can Make A Big Difference
Accessories do a lot to set a look off. You might not think that the ubiquitous gold watch and cufflinks can really make much of an impact, or that nice black sports car can really set you apart in the crowd.
But they can. And they always will. If you’re going to sit down and enjoy a formal meal in one of those first class hotels and want to impress your companions, then wearing gold watch and cuff links would not only look stylish and expensive, it would give you the confidence to talk up the massive meal as your belly grows over the next two days.
On the other hand, a fussy, fawning type of guy might not feel that comfortable wearing large cuff links and a heavy gold watch. However, there is a right style of guy for this look and it is not difficult to find.
A Famous Favourite Suggestion
Ask any famous rock star who has thrown his hat into the ring and you’re sure to get a favourable suggestion. retire the silver tongue and give your wallet some time.
John Lydon was a hugely talented rock star who flew round the world and was revered for his brooding, off beat musical tastes and the round kinkier persona that made him famous.
For once, it looks like you don’t have to play the field to make the best point. Just let your hair grow and change your look. It doesn’t matter if you practise wearing ties, it’s far more effective if you look like you are trying to lose your hair.
Being well dressed also means that you can be more creative in other ways. For instance, instead of all the suits for hundreds of years men have tied scarves around their necks and guys have done it since the wilderness. What is more, this will make a lovely impression at a crucial moment like a job interview where you stand before a pile of 30 or 40 lawyers in matching dark suits with matching coloured cuff links.
As you can tell, it was simplyfter difficult than it looks.
