Upstyling
October 4th, 2012Fashion, Inspiration, StyleSolosso 0 Comments

Men’s clothing styles don’t change as often as women’s do, so many men go for several seasons without changing their wardrobe.  If you’re walking around in clothes that you should have gotten rid of years ago, then it’s time to take a good look at your closet and decide what should stay and what should go.  Candidates for discarding should include anything that’s out of style or that belongs to a less mature phase of your life.  If you have trouble recognizing problem pieces in your wardrobe, get objective opinions from style-savvy friends. Then upstyling comes into play.

Replacing your wardrobe at one time can be pricey.  By using a technique that we call upstyling, you can make over your wardrobe without breaking the bank.  This is how it works — as your budget allows, pick one item of clothing and replace it with something similar but of better quality and style.  For example, let’s say you have an old leather jacket that you paid less than $300 for and that now is showing its age.  Replace it with a higher-quality jacket that has similar style but costs more, say in the $500 price range.

Here’s another example – if you’ve been a fan of over-sized clothing, replace loose styles with more form-fitting versions.  Replace baggy pants with fitted pants that suit your body type.  If you’ve been buying off-the-rack dress shirts, upgrade to custom-made shirts with a tailored fit.

 

Why perfect fit matters.

 

First impressions last forever.  Don’t let low-quality and outdated clothing cause people to judge you unfavorably.  By upstyling, you can build a high-quality wardrobe one piece at a time.  Spending a little more money on each new piece of clothing will go a long way towards taking your entire wardrobe to the next style level.  Over time, upstyling can provide you with a classic stylish wardrobe that will serve you for years to come.
