Taste and class come at an expense. All the sharply dressed men and women on custom dresses you see in corporate meetings spend thousands of dollars on designer clothing. But hold on, do you have to be rich in order to impress? Of course, that is no. You don’t have to spend a fortune or the whole of your savings to look like Idris Elba or Julianne Moore. You can always be creative to achieve that fashion sense you keep on dreaming about.
And did you also know the best fashion stylists don’t copy fashion styles or patterns from anywhere? Here are a few tips that will see you become a self-made fashion icon; upgrades that you shouldn’t miss at all costs:
- Update your closet
We all have that set of clothes that we’d rather die than get caught wearing in public. So, if you cannot step outside with it, why have it as part of your wardrobe in the first place? Well, they may have sentimental values or other personal meaning, but they are just filling up space for no reason! Once you’ve decided to be a fashion icon, there isn’t turning back. It would be best if you cleared out all the things that you don’t use and fill that space with something classy that will define your upgrade status. You are looking up to set a dressing trend not just in the streets but also to people who have access to your wardrobe.
- Get customized tailoring
Gone are the days for you to choose oversized clothes to disguise body shape insecurities that you may have. The moment you decide to upgrade fashion, style, and taste, you need to have confidence in your body too. Why don’t you try out customized tailoring and see the magic working out? Moreover, you don’t know how a tailored designer blazer will look on you. So say goodbye to hoodies that hide insecurities. The best thing about blazers is that they have seemingly expensive details that make them look costly than they really are. Why don’t you get one if you want people to imitate your “expensive” fashion taste?
- Have a signature swag
Another trick of upgrading is having that signature look any day, anywhere you go. For instance, when you rock trench coats on top of your official workwear daily, you can turn that into a signature look. If you are the boss, why don’t you try sun-hats when outdoors? Make people recognize you for afar. And if you manage to do it correctly, you’ll have a bunch of people who always wants to imitate your look day in day out. If that’s the reaction, doesn’t it show an upgrade?
- Keep it classy shoes only
Most stylists and designers will tell you that shoes always give the first impression before anything else. A perfect upgrade before anything else should be chic shoes. Remember, sneakers and casual shoes don’t speak much of class and elegance, but instead, they have a street impression. The moment you choose your way up, then get ready to spend on expensive designer leather shoes. Besides, leather shoes are sturdy and durable and will keep you going for longevity. Therefore, you already have something that gives you a run for the dollar.
- Bright and good-looking accessories
You can dress casually, but a perfect matching accessory makes a big difference in how you look. It is that time you know how to match accessories with clothing, color, and design. And well, you can also steal a few shows from the men’s world. A perfect glittering designer watch will carry the day when you rock a skirt suit. And what do you think about necklaces and earrings? Could you keep it simple but classy? Don’t put on something that makes a lot of noise when you walk around a boardroom.
- Treat your dress code as a responsibility
Finally, you’ll only scale to higher fashion upgrades when you treat your style personally and as a responsibility. No one knows how comfortable that pair of shoes make you feel, but only you. Similarly, you don’t have to share every detail of your fashion sense to every Tom, Dick, and Harry lest they perfect it and beat you in your own game! It’s that time you make sure that everything stays at the top, including your dress code!
