As a modern man, it is highly likely your bank balance will be on the unhealthy side from time to time. So investing in your style and look is likely to be the last thing on your mind. However, in this blog post we are going to discuss why the you should indeed ‘invest’ in your style.
In your later teenage years and certainly your early twenties, the modern man goes through a rapid period of lifestyle changes. Whether that be choosing your studies towards a potential career, moving away from the family home to university / college, meeting your first love, and really dealing with the stress of “what the heck do I even want to do with my life”? So where does investing in your style come into play with all of this? Here are our top three reasons to why you should indeed invest in your wardrobe:
As a modern man the most important thing you want to find out is what makes you tick, because this is something that you will want to build your life around. At such a stressful time, it’s important to feel good, feel confident and feel happy. Feeling these three things will get you a long way in life. Why? Because people love confidence, whether that be potential employers or the beautiful girl you can’t seem to get off your mind. So why invest in style? Simple: because dressing well and having good style gives you the confidence you need to take life head on. You will be amazed at the confidence you can gain from seeing yourself in the mirror dressed up - you might not even recognise yourself!
You will be shocked at how many events and opportunities you will have to make an impression during this period. To name but a few, you’ll have: weddings, college/university summer balls/ parties, sport social parties, graduation, interviews, works drinks, dating, and of course, eventually meeting the girlfriend's parents. Dressing well for such events not only gives you confidence, but it will also set you apart from those who don’t necessarily care about their style. Believe us now; making just the small amount of effort goes a long way. It will massively help with making a better impression, and of course, making that first impression a lasting one.
Starting to care about what you wear at an early age means you will have more time to experiment and find your style overall. All of the fantastic Instagram accounts – like @samwines_ and @stileeleganteman, (some of our favourites at the moment) - don’t happen because they just woke up one morning with a magic wardrobe of stylish new clothes - it took time. It takes smart shopping and knowing how you want to dress in order to build a stylish wardrobe that can cater to most occasions. Starting from an early age allows you to do this! By doing a little bit each month to grow your collection will go a long way in the long run.
So there we have it, a post addressing the topic of styling. We feel it is important to learn, grow and evolve your style with time. Dressing like the man you want to become (aspirational dressing), certainly does help you along that path towards becoming the man you want to become. Trust us.
