Three ways to improve your style without a stylist

1. SOLVE 90% OF YOUR STYLE PROBLEMS BY GETTING THE RIGHT FIT. “How the hell does he look so stylish wearing a suit?”

The answer, my friend, is fit.

Fit is the most important thing when it comes to great style. It’s so important, in fact, that I tell all my friends “wearing clothes that fit properly will solve 90% of your style problems.”
When clothes don’t fit properly, they throw off your body proportions. Because of the excess fabric, clothes that are too big make you not only look sloppy, but fatter and shorter than you are.


Men have the tendency to wear clothes that are too big for them because it either “feels more comfortable”, or they just don’t know how clothes are supposed to fit in the first place.


The right fit is how someone like Idris Elba (or me, or you) can look effortlessly stylish rocking a plain suit, and how someone can look terrible in a “nice suit” that probably cost 20x more.
This also means if you think you need a stylist in order to look stylish, you don’t! 

If you’re more a leather jacket and jeans like me, you can be leather jacket and jeans and look great, as long as you’re wearing clothes that fit right.

 

 

2. 'Some say men shouldn’t wear pink, but I say if your complexion suits it, wear it’

When choosing colours to wear on a day to day bases, try and stick with solid colours that compliment each other. 

Here are a few good combinations to help you get started when choosing an outfit. Neutral colours are white, black, navy, olive, grey, khaki, brown

Colours not only compliment each other, they also complement your complexion. Ideally, you would want to choose colours that suit your skin tone. The best way todo this is by starting with opposite colours to your skin tone.

So in a nutshell, if you have a light completion start with dark solid colours, and the vice-versa is also true.  It isn’t makeup so you don’t have to blend in with your outfit. When wearing opposite colours, this comes across as a good sense of style without trying. This should make you,  genetically stylish before you know it you will be.

 

3. Start improving your sense of style by looking for the good stylish.

You can start working on this by collecting images of outfits/ people you like the look of. No one was born with a good sense of style, so this requires some practice.  Simply start with pictures of James Bond, if the classic look is what you’re into. If not, choose someone you know pays for a stylish (like a celebrity), and start collecting images or just someone who has a fashion sense you like. These will help you to get an idea of outfits' work well together before you start shopping.
