In the fashion community, it’s well known that accessories are often the pieces of an outfit which tie everything together. Whether they add a bit of color, texture, or a unique twist, the accessories you wear with your formal clothing are very important. The rules in place are strict, to ensure that everything looks good together. So, you have to learn a thing or two before you can strut your stuff. To help you with this, this post will be going through four of the most important male accessories you can get.

The tie you wear with a suit is very important. The color has to be right, matching the rest of the suit and accessories, and it has to be the right shape. Thankfully, most clothing stores will have a wide range of colors available. And, if you’re stuck, you could go for an option which matches the color of the rest of the suit. Along with your tie, you can also consider a nice belt to go with your suits. This part of the outfit should match the color of your shoes. So, if you have black shoes, you would go for a black belt. Or, if the shoes are brown, the belt should be, too.

It’s surprising how big an impact your socks can have on your overall outfit. A lot of people make the mistake of simply matching their socks with their tie, going for the same color. Instead, though, it’s better to base your socks on the color of your trousers. Experts recommend that you choose a shade or two lighter than your shorts. So, if you had blue trousers, you could go for lighter gray-blue socks.

Most men will choose to wear a watch with their suit, and this part is very important, too. Most people can’t afford a watch for each outfit, unfortunately. So, finding the right option might take some time. You can buy watches for men on loads of different sites. If you find one you like, you could further invest in straps and the tools to change them to save some money. You should buy straps to match the belts and shoes you have, with leather being better than metal in most modern settings.

Finally, on to one of the most important accessories, your suit can have; shoes. The shoes you wear can change the look of your entire outfit, so it’s important that you choose the right ones. The color of your shoes should complement the rest of your outfit, making the other colors around them pop. Most people will go for either black or brown leather shoes for their formal outfits. But, you could try something a little more interesting if you’re willing to take a risk.

Hopefully, this post will give you a helping hand you need when you’re choosing accessories for your next formal occasion. Most people fail to put this sort of effort into their formal gear. But, it can have a real impact on your appearance. So, it’s worth at least considering.

Dress To Impress On Your Next Job Interview

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Job interviews can be tough; the nerves, anticipation, and having to remember answers to questions that you haven’t even been asked yet. Therefore, it’s vital to get off to a great start by feeling confident in your appearance and looking your best. If you feel smart and well-groomed as you wait to go into whatever office you’re being interviewed in; the rest will seem a little easier, and you won’t be fidgeting in your seat to adjust your attire. The following are some things to consider if you have an interview coming up and need some help to prepare.

Look Sharp

Whatever job you’re being interviewed for; you’ll need to look as smart as possible. Whether you after a business role in a modern office environment, or you’re after a hands-on physical career in building work; your potential employer will notice the effort that you made that day, and it shows that you care about being there. A classic suit, shirt, and tie is always a great outfit option. If you can’t afford a new suit (until your first payday; think positive), there’s always the option of hiring a decent one for a fraction of the cost.

If you have a number of interviews lined up; it might be worth investing in a suit or taking a second hand one to be tailored and fitted correctly. If your clothes look like they were made for you, you’ll look sharp and feel great. Make sure that everything is well pressed or steamed on the morning of your interview; creases look untidy, and employers are unlikely to appreciate an untidy candidate. Do some final checks in the bathroom for lint or fluff, and remove them before you go in so that you look dapper; you’ve got this.

Stand Out

Your potential new boss may have seen multiple candidates for the job role in one day; so you want to wear something that will stand out a little and ensure that they remember you. If you favor neutral or beige ties, add a brightly colored pocket square or vice versa. You don’t need to head to toe in a crazy printed fabric; however, try to portray your personality a little to stand out from the crowd in the waiting room.

Perhaps you have a vintage briefcase with a story behind it or a pocket watch and waistcoat that’s been handed down through your family; whatever the focus is, your interviewer will take note, and you’ll stick in their mind a bit more than the rest do.

Walk Tall

Your body language is the best way to show (or pretend) how confident you are; don’t walk in hunched and small. Walk proud and tall into your interview so that your outfit looks better and you’ll be more approachable and a pleasure to talk to. Give a firm handshake and smile; you can cover up any nerves and insecurities that you might be feeling. For more body language tips during an interview, take a look here and practice at home beforehand. If you give off confidence and charm; you’ll be an attractive prospect for any company, and you should have no problem in securing your next job role or career move.

In fact, it can turn a great memory into a bad one. Therefore, just before you travel, you need to work on shaping up your appearance. In fact, here is how to pull off a new look before you travel.

Work on your skin care

And it can bring down your appearance when it’s time to make your travels. After all, you will feel like people are looking straight at your bad skin when you are meeting new people on vacation. Therefore, before you go on your travels, you should work on your skin care. That way, you can have a clear face before you hit the plane.

You might even want to use a face mask which can boost your skin and help with any spots. Or you could even look into going for a facial which is perfect for clearing up your skin. And then you can head off on holiday with better skin! Just remember to ensure you pack some sun lotion which you use on your face. After all, you don’t want to end up burning your skin which will cause problems like lines and wrinkles which will make you look older!

Time for a haircut

Poor hair can bring down your whole appearance. After all, you can spend hours working on other areas of your body. But if you have bad hair, all the focus will go on the cut when you are out and about. Therefore, you need to ensure your hair is in good shape before you go on your travels. That way, even if you don’t style it after being in the sea, you can still ensure it still looks superb. And you won’t look back with regret at your hair in pictures. It might be the case you book in for a hair appointment. After all, the hairdresser will ensure your hair is cut to perfection before you go on holiday. And you can ensure any dead hair is cut away, leaving you with a fresh and new cropped style. Just make sure you don’t go for something too different. After all, you don’t want to hate your new style, and can’t do anything about it before the holiday. You can also get your own hair clippers to cut your hair into style. Just look online for the best hair clippers and trimmers for men to then be able to create a great style. You can even take them on holiday with you. That way, if you need a touch-up, you can quickly change your hair to ensure you look fantastic while on vacation. And remember to pack some good shampoo and conditioner. That way, it will stay in good condition even when you are using vacation water!

Have a good shave

If you like a clear cut look, you should ensure you have a good shave before you hit your holiday. After all, you want to make sure you are smooth shaven when you hit the beach. That way, you don’t have to worry about your appearance when you are in the pool and sunbathing. You don’t want to look back at photos and wish that you had spent more time working on your facial hair. That way, spend time working on making it look perfect before you hit the road. You might even want to go to barbers where you can get it cut professionally. That way, you can have a smooth shave which will look great. And if you are keeping your beard for the trip, ensure you still give it a trim. After all, you don’t want it to look out of control when you look back at pictures.
