Advice on Change

Keep it simple; keep it classic.
One of the easiest ways to change your look is to choose a haircut that allows for styling versatility. This can be very inexpensive yet very effective and it is often a style element that men overlook. Remember, with product (hair gels, texture pastes, styling crèmes and the like) you can change the shape and style of most hair cuts, as you have a bit of length to work with.

Women respond to confidence.
Women will notice the way you carry yourself above anything else. This includes having good posture and a strong sense of personal style (no matter what that style may be). When you feel good about the way you look others will take notice as well. Confidence is the best style component of all.

Expand your horizons.
It’s very easy to get caught in the jeans and t-shirt rut. Look for different variations on your favorite styles or go for something new all together. You can still keep your personal style intact without becoming someone else completely. Don’t sell out your own identity to follow the crowd; individuality is a very underrated quality.

It’s all in the execution.
No matter what the style, it’s the way you wear it–from a well-executed hair cut to trousers having the proper hem length, if you don’t execute the look properly it will most definitely fall short.

You can upgrade on a budget.
The general rule is to make investments in classic pieces of clothing that never go out of style, like cashmere sweaters or a great pair of jeans. For a trendy item, something you’ll only wear one season, you may not want to pay top dollar but rather get a similar item at a discount store like H&M. You can also make money from your old clothes, donating them to consignment shops or thrift stores (all tax deductible!) Spend that refund on the new pieces you need to complete your wardrobe.
