Leaning Into Your Best Self Through Style

Fashion and style are often portrayed as a nice extra, something you can indulge in provided you have the disposable income to do so. Of course, this is true, there’s no obligation to wear well-designed clothes. After all, the amount of tech billionaires who wear cargo shorts and the same set of differently-shaded crew necks could fill a large stadium.  

However, it’s also true to say that how we dress often reflects back how we feel about ourselves, and how we present ourselves to the world. In other words, dressing helps you look good, it ensures you lean into your best self, and it helps others see the best in you, too. 

The secret here is that you don’t need to spend over the odds to dress well and feel great in your threads. A simple wardrobe, well-fitted and put together, can be fantastic. Some even design “capsule wardrobes,” where every item is chosen to match every other item, meaning that your morning outfit-wear won’t condemn you to analysis paralysis. 

With that in mind, let’s consider how to lean int your best self through style:

A Statement Piece  

A statement piece can feel great to wear, even if that’s only for certain scenarios. For instance, a watch you invest in, one with a good make, a beautiful face, and engineering that could possibly last decades upon decades if well-kept can showcase a real commitment to your image, a form of self-expression that remains enduring for quite some time. Moreover, a statement piece such as this can change with time, be that where you adorn a ring passed down in your family, or how you repair a favorite pair of boots.  

A Provision For Every Event  

You won’t need to fill your wardrobe to the brim with heavy-hitting stylish garments, only clothes that match the events you’re most used to. A man’s look is often complete when he has a good coat he can rely on, professional wear such as a blazer and smart trousers, and waistcoats and gilets for those semi-formal events. Well-fitted, these options help complete an outfit and prepare you for most events, ensuring you always have something to fall back on. 

Culture & Personality Matters

Don’t let others dictate your style for you, infuse your personality and style into the threads you wear. For some, that might involve the culture they hail from, wearing particular garments styles such as robes or hats that work for them and add a degree of authenticity. Personality is often found in the trimmings, from the cufflinks you wear to the simple but effective pattern ties you treat your office colleagues to each day. A little humour can go a long way, as can the kind of accessory that works for you, be that a piercing or a set of balanced accessories that are symmetrically worn. 

With this advice, you’ll be sure to lean into your best self through style, through, and through. Over time, this could help you feel freer in fashion, as opposed to tying yourself towards artificial rules.
