Style

Here are eight style tips for you to look cool and fashionable:

1. Fit comes first

Wearing baggy clothes make you look short and weak. Only wear clothes that fit your body. You'll look taller and stronger.

2. Being well-dressed makes you more confident

I was nervous that people would think I'm too young and wouldn't take me seriously. And I found out that my age wasn't the problem; the problem was my clothes. Wearing a white T-shirt, light blue jeans and Converse sneakers made me look like a college kid.

Being the most well-dressed person in the room makes you more confident. People will take you more seriously and see you as a professional.

3. Wear medium rise pants

Unless you're Jeremy Lin, low-rise pants make your legs look shorter. I bet you don't want to look like a Minion... or Hobbit.

Wear medium or even high rise pants so your body will look more well-balanced.

4. You can look smart... without a tie

Wearing tie is a torture... especially in summer. Got a casual networking events at the bar? Throw away your tie. Put on your dark tee, sports jacket and dark jeans. You'll look smart and feel comfortable.

5. Don't forget the shoes

Your clothes are how you present yourself: be professional. Wearing Adidas sports shoes makes you look boring and forgettable.

Wearing high-quality shoes makes you memorable. I have eight pairs of shoes from Dr. Martins, Clarks and Timberland. Choose your favorite brand and go for the best shoes.

6. Fill your pocket with squares

Have you seen Hollywood movie stars putting a handkerchief-like cloth on their jacket pocket? That's a pocket square.

Wearing a pocket square helps you stand out. Time to be a movie star, and deliver your message effectively and confidently.

7. Know your color tone

I'm not talking about skin color. I'm talking about what colors match you.

There are two color tones: warm and cool. To know your color tone, ask yourself:

Do you burn easily in the sun? If yes, your color tone is cool.

Do you look better in silver, comparing with gold? If yes, your color tone is cool (And yes, I like silver... it suits me well.)

By knowing your color tone, you can choose colors that match you. For example, cool color tone matches with blue and warm color tone matches with orange.

8. Quality, quality, quality

Wearing clothes are like making friends... quality matters more than quantity. It's better to have three great outfits than 30 bad outfits. Choose your clothes wisely.

I wanted to share this because I feel like it is something a lot of men, including me, struggle with. I got this from Huffington Post.

Quality is fine and dandy but this also makes people assume you HAVE to wear name brands to look good. It isn't true.

Sadly though, most of the time it is. A lot of cheaper brands and off the wall brands make LQ stuff. BUT if you shop on ebay and get stuff direct from China, you would be amazed at the quality for next to nothing in price.

Yeah I think it is a northern thing like calling soda "pop". Most people look at me like a mental case when I say that anywhere else. lol

If you don't spend enough though, no matter the brand, the clothing will be crap. Trust me. I hate shopping but when I do, I always make sure I get stuff that will last and not look like garbage after a few washes.

What stores on there have you shopped from? I am always worried about my stuff being lost or something. I don't mind waiting but spending $20+ and not getting anything or the chance of not getting anything makes me stay away.

I only agree with #1 and #7 here. If I put on anything baggy, I suddenly feel like I'm in 1995. Color matching is also key. If you wear loud colors, you'll again look like you popped out of DeLorean hailing from 1992. Lol.
