It’s no secret that looking great makes us feel better. When we feel on top of things, we’re prone to succeed at whatever we do throughout the day.
So, it makes sense that the modern gentleman should take a little extra time to curate the way he looks. We’re going to talk about a few ways that you can hone your gentleman style so that you have the confidence to move through your day feeling your best.
Hopefully, some of the ideas below resonate with you and help you get where you need to go. Let’s take a look.
How to Hone Your Gentleman Style
The first thing to identify is inconsistencies in your routine. We all have a few things that we do well, but what are the things that you have trouble with?
We should curate a daily practice of taking care of our hygiene as well as our appearance. That means focusing on your skincare, grooming, and bathing, then worrying about the wardrobe.
The challenge is that these things take time. They’re skills, which we tend to forget. You can’t have an intuitive knowledge of how to manage your morning with excellent grooming habits. You’ve got to learn how to make it work for yourself.
The only way to do that is to start applying yourself to your morning routine and working out the kinks. That, and a little insight into the particular techniques that you’re incorporating into your life.
Reimagine The Suit and Tie
Once you’ve cleaned up, it’s time to hit the wardrobe.
The modern gentleman style is a little different than it once was, though. There isn’t a single way to go about things. James Bond had it easy.
Now, you’ve got the ability to express yourself through your wardrobe in various ways. You might feel best in a suit and tie, while you might be able to look just as sharp in something that is traditionally considered casual.
Because there is such a spectrum of potential, we have to look at the principle behind your wardrobe. We couldn’t, for example, say that you should wear a Gucci suit.
Instead, we can say that you should put time into thinking about what you wear. Don’t just browse clothes online and purchase the first thing that looks good.
Plan out why you are wearing what you wear. What do you want to express through your wardrobe? What kind of impression do you want to make?
How much variety would you like to incorporate?
Once you have a clear image of what you’re going for, you can start looking at your options. The idea is to curate your appearance in an intentional way. That’s more in the style of the modern gentleman than getting filtered into a particular trend or spending more than he has to on a popular suit.
