One of life’s greatest blessings is that we can always re-invent ourselves.

Every day, we have the chance to define who we are and a big part of who we are is what we wear.

When anyone sees you for the first time the first thing their mind processes is how you look, way before they get the chance to know you.

Sophistication presents you as refined. Its shows you have good taste and a deep understanding of your personal style.

Although sophistication goes way beyond style, appearance is where it begins. 

Here are guidelines to achieving a more sophisticated look.

Everyman needs a personal tailor

You might think you don’t need a tailor. But you may be mistaken. Picture it as hiring a personal trainer. While you could work out without the guidance and expertise of a personal trainer and get on fine, it might take a little trial and error to learn how to get the most out of your workout by yourself.

Hiring a personal trainer from the outset means that you can ensure that every workout is effective in targeting exactly what you want.

With our style preferences, many of us have become complacent, automatically embracing generic off-the-rack clothing that never suits anyone perfectly. You can get so much more out of your clothing by hiring and developing a long-term relationship with an experienced tailor.

Right Shoes for the Occasion

Your outfit may be appropriate, but if your shoes aren’t, it shows that you aren’t sophisticated. We often forget shoes but people notice them a lot. Many things can be said about a man by the shoes he wears. 

That doesn’t mean that you have to wear Gucci shoes, but that means that your shoes should be clean and classic. You should have a pair of loafers, trendy dress shoes, sneakers, and sandals that are basic and can be easily matched with your outfits.

Take Care of Your Clothing

Scruffiness is rarely interpreted as a sophisticated look. If you want to look better, you don’t necessarily need an entire new wardrobe, sometimes all it takes is taking better care of the clothes you already have.

Personalize Your Style

You need to make sure that the look you wear works for you. If you’re trying to look sophisticated but your own clothes and shoes are uncomfortable, well, you’re definitely not going to pull it off.

Dress in clothing that makes you feel confident because, at the end of the day, that’s what is going to show.

Invest in Quality

From now on, your motto should be ‘quality over quantity’. 

When the things in your wardrobe need to be replaced, invest in key pieces that will last. Men’s clothing tends to lack variety, so you can stand out from the crowd by focusing on the quality of the fabric, the thread and the cutting of your garments. Buying one decent piece of clothing often is better than five bad ones.

Remember , what’s most important is #NEVERTOBECAUGHTUNFRESH

    This was really insightful Simi. Thanks for emphasizing quality over quantity cause most times the more clothes you have that are of less quality, the more wardrobe malfunction you will have.
