Being sophisticated isn’t everybody’s calling. Neither is being sophisticated the be all and end all in life. But styling yourself in a sophisticated manner is something everybody can do. And there’s nothing wrong with injecting your wardrobe with an air of sophistication. Below are a few ways you can style yourself sophisticated.
First of all you should take almost a minimalist approach. You should try to buy less. But buying less doesn’t mean you need lack in any compartment. You should use the money you save on not buying other items of clothing by buying better when it comes to the items you do purchase. This will more than compensate for not buying in bulk. By not having you wardrobe burst at the seams and instead focusing on a fewer amount of quality items you will then always be seen in quality. And this is cornerstone of sophisticated styling: quality. Instead of buying a different watch for every day of the week why don’t you take a look at a vintage Rolex for sale? That way whenever anybody looks at your wrist they’ll see quality, and the fact that you wear it every day won’t matter.
Another cornerstone of sophisticated styling is neatness. Nobody has ever looked sophisticated without tucking their shirt in or buttoning their shirt up. Nobody has ever looked sophisticated with their underwear on show. And nobody has certainly ever looked sophisticated in clothes that don’t fit them! Because of this you should always ensure that the clothes you adorn yourself in, especially if they’re suits, are tailored to fit your body. Clothing alterations are key to completing any wardrobe, in truth, but especially so when you are trying to give off an air of sophistication in the way you dress. Because of this you should never forgo the task that is ensuring that everything is as it seems and your clothes are not bursting at the seams. You should also never forgo the importance shoes play in the ensemble. You may have experience in giving precedence to what you wear on your feet due to your need as a teen to have the latest trainers. But buying shoes in a sophisticated sense is a completely different task. It’s not necessarily about buying a pair to stand out, like you did with the trainers you bought when you were younger. It’s about buying a pair that will fit seamlessly in with the rest of your gear. It’s about buying a pair that won’t draw too much attention for either being ‘too fancy’, or just for being too different to the rest of your style. The best thing of all in this sense? You don’t have to go out and buy the most expensive shoes possible. There are many cheap ways to find the best and most suitable shoes.
There’s nothing to say you have to change your style, and there’s nothing to say you can’t dress sophisticated on occasion, even if you are more suited to the street style. If you want to stick with your style, you do it! If you want to twist your style, you do it! The beauty of fashion is that everybody has the right and ability to chose their own. But if a sophisticate style does take your fancy, make sure to take heed of the advice above.
