I get it. You don’t want to look like this guy.
But that doesn’t mean you have to look like this guy either.
Or even worse, this guy.
Lesson learned? Alright, now it’s time to learn how to look like this guy.
Don’t be afraid… this would work too.
So in all seriousness, let’s start with the Basics.
Skinny Ties a must, Plaid/Patterned Button-up Shirts another must, Grey, Navy, or Khaki Blazer check! If you’re not a shopper buy multiples in different colors that you know are uber comfortable. Now onto the next piece of important business…
Skip the Pleats! The guys who avoid the diaper crotch and wear fitted pants always get the girl. Or at least that’s how it works in my fairytales. So stop this very moment and vow never to buy pleated pants again even if they are on sale for $12. I digress. Next…
Dark Wash Jeans. Not light, not faded glory (no pun intended) but simple dark wash to medium wash jeans. Add some character and roll them up to change your look and show off your cool socks. After all, you’re not fooling anyone. We know you’ve worn those same jeans all this week.
Did I mention to update your Shoes? What about your Socks? This is a simple way to move your teen image into your new 20 something professional state. Yep… I along with everyone else realize that your t-shirt is from your senior class in the year 2000 something, and I think the Salvation Army would like to add it to their collection. As for the details…
It’s easy way for a guy to update his wardrobe! Add a new watch, some new sunglasses, maybe a spankin’ new belt, you guys seriously don’t know how easy you’ve got it. And last but not least…
I know you love your dad, we all do, alright well that sounded creepy. Forget that point, let me try again. You might love your dad, but that doesn’t mean you have to dress like him. If Steve Carell can make the change, so can you.
Welcome to your 20 somethings guys, now let’s make it happen!
P.S. – Don’t forget to add some dark khaki’s (not cargo), t-shirts under blazers, and to mix grey’s and browns together more often than not!
