5 Ways to Personalize Your Style

Written by Kimberley | 06/11/2015

Shirts, trousers and shoes. These three are the basics to a guy’s daily wardrobe. It can be hard for males to stand out amongst the crowd but personalizing your style can be a good way of doing this. So how do you do it? Read on for 5 simple ways.


  • Embrace Your Roots

A very cliché term is that you can take the boy out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the boy, yes it is cliché but also very valid. Whether you spent your childhood trotting around the country side or in a cul-de-sac neighborhood it is inevitable that your past makes you the person you are today. So why not use the roots of your upbringing to personalize your style? So if you are from the urban areas of a city why not show this in your style just the same as if you from the countryside.

  • Experiment With Color

When you open your wardrobe do you see a never ending row of neutrals like black grey and brown? Unfortunately, most modern men fall into this trap so why not try and mix it up. Think about what is your favorite color or pattern and use this in your wardrobe.


  • Avoid Present Stores

Shopping in those big chain stores is perfect for finding stylish threads in one swoop. However, if you are looking to personalize your style this is not the place to do so. Not only will lots of men have the same garments as you, you may end up even twinning and it is always an uncomfortable moment when another guy walks into a bar wearing the same as you. I’m afraid unless you’re planning on designing you own bespoke fashion line there is no way to prevent this. However you can minimizing the frequency by visiting more obscure shops or even a nearby vintage store.

Lots of children are taught you’re never fully dressed without a smile. Now we find you’re never fully dressed without accessories. A few accessories can be the thing that ties an look together, watches add a level of sophistication to an outfit. So if you feel your personality is sophisticated then a watch is for you.


  • Invest in a Tailored Suit.

Menswear legends such as Don Draper and James Bond would agree that a tailored suit is a man’s secret weapon. Wearing a suit that is too big for makes you look like you borrowed your dads suit and that’s not stylish. With a number of affordable suits on the market finding one that fits your body and budget isn’t as daunting as you would expect.
