Your version of dressing your best might be someone else’s loungewear. Unfortunately, it can be hard to keep up with the changing trends and styles, that one day, sweatpants may be in and the next, they’re out.

If you think dressing better revolves around a suit and a tie, that isn’t always the case. You can easily dress up without the top hat and rabbit. Ultimately, you’re probably looking for something that can keep you casual, comfy, and looking the best you’ve ever looked.

In order to do this, there are a few things you can do. The first thing you need to do is to stop dressing younger than you are. Many people are guilty of it. Men, women, everyone has dressed like they’re 20 when they’re actually 40. However, if you want to dress better, you have to dress your age. There are many mens fashion options out there that are easy to throw on but will keep you looking appropriately young. For example, throw on a short sleeve button-down on a warm summer day. Pairing that with a pair of slacks and nice shoes will really tie the outfit together. What’s great about the button downs is that they come in many different styles and prints. If you loved stripes as a teen, you can still love stripes as an adult. If your childhood dream was to constantly wear sports shirts with crazy prints, you can still do that, just within reason. It’s time to ditch the constantly sports shirts and go for something a little more classy.

A really simple way to dress yourself up is by wearing a pair of designer jeans. You’ve probably grown up wearing jeans and there’s nothing wrong with still doing it now. But, you just have to make sure you’re wearing the correct pair of jeans. The right pair of jeans doesn’t mean anything that’s baggy with holes up and down the legs. Also, avoid wearing jeans with embellishments. You won’t be taken seriously with those on. Studies show that first impressions are formed within seven to 17 seconds of meeting someone. 55% of a person’s opinion is determined by physical appearance, which is why it’s so important to dress well.

You can easily dress up your style by dressing up your shoes. Sure, those dirty, beat-up sneakers that you’ve had for years are your favorite. But, they’ll actually ruin your entire outfit. Replace your college-worn kicks with something a bit more dignified for a classier appearance. So, the next time you’re heading out the door, choose a pair of brown, leather lace-ups instead of your trusty sneaks.

Even though you’re used to wearing sweatpants, sports shirts, and sweatshirts, changing your outfit can change everything about you. If you want to be taken more seriously and if you’re looking to spice things up, keep the tips above in mind.
