Most of us would like to think that we’re pretty snappy dressers, but when it comes to fashion, there is always room for improvement, so let’s take a look at some of the best ways you can be more fashionable whatever your style of choice may be.

Get your clothing tailored

Sure, you might not have the money to get all of your wardrobe made bespoke for you, but chances are you can stretch to having a tailor alter those off-the-peg outfits so that they fit you like a glove. Whether you’re wearing your favorite pair of jeans or a designer dress, when it fits just right, you will automatically look a million times more stylish, guaranteed.

Buy the best you can afford

whether it is your everyday trackpants or a special suit for those fancy occasions, if you want to look stylish, you should always buy the best clothing you can afford. That does not necessarily mean blowing all of your money on a designer name either – it means investing in high-quality fabrics and finishes that look good on you and which will last without succumbing to obvious signs of wear and tear. Natural fabrics tend to be the best choice.

Go neutral

Okay, so if you like to go out dressed like a storm in a packet of Skittles, that is just fine and dandy, but if you struggle to look stylish it has to be said that it’s easier to achieve a sophisticated look if you stick to neutrals or even a monochrome palate. It also makes it easier for you to mix and match your clothes and come up with an outfit that works.

Buy classic pieces such as jeans, dress trousers, a little black dress, and a decent shirt in neutral and you can always add a pop of color with the accessories you choose, but you will always be able to pull a stylish outfit out of the bag.

Invest in a great coat

If you have a really good coat, then half of your work when it comes to looking stylish is accomplished. Your coat will cover many of your outfit sins and make you look and feel smarter, so whether it’s long and woolen or short and leather, choose a coat that suits you and which has been tailored well and the battle will be that step closer to being won.

Ensure you’re well-groomed

Even if you’re wearing the finest designer clothing that fits you like a glove, if you look disheveled in your appearance, you will never achieve the stylish silhouette you were after, so take the time to wash, brush your hair and apply makeup or cologne if yu really want to look great.

Wear it with confidence

Whatever you choose to wear, if you wear it with confidence, you will always look more stylish than the next person because confidence is the best thing you can wear – it will make people sit up and pay attention to you. That means you need to feel comfortable in your clothing too!

As you can see, it really is simple to be more stylish no matter what it is you choose to wear!
