When it comes to wardrobe and fashion, many guys do not  realize that clothing does indeed “make the man.” What you wear is just as important to others as to  yourself. To be taken seriously in today’s society, a first impression does matter--significantly.

It is important to keep in mind that wearing the  most expensive clothes  won’t flatter you  if you do not walk straight.  Stand up straight and carry yourself with  pride. If you respect yourself, others will too.

If you want to be noticed favourably by both women and men, we’ve got some basic fashion and style tips to help you dress up to your potential.

Wear Clothes that Fit
When you’re shopping, buy clothes that are comfortable. If you need something altered, visit your tailor.

Find out What Works for You
Take a good look in the mirror and you’ll begin to understand what colors and styles look the best on you. It’s OK to try something new, but classics outlive trends.

Maintain Your Clothing
Don’t wear soiled or wrinkled clothes. Stick to fabrics that resist wrinkling or learn how to use an iron. Suits and formal wear should be taken to the dry-cleaner to be  cleaned and pressed.

Stripes - Not the Best Choice
It’s best to stay away from horizontal stripes, unless you are  tall and slim. Most stripes are unflattering, and the horizontal ones add bulk, can make you appear  heavier, and shorter. Solid colors are a good choice and dark, solids will make you look slimmer.

Keep it Simple
Loud, bright colors and patterns can make you look ridiculous. You can’t go wrong with basic black and navy blue for work or casual, it’s classic for a reason. You  can add other attractive colors for a perfect match.

Get Rid of Old Clothes
Don’t be stuck in the “good old days.” If it’s out of style, don’t wear it anymore. If you can’t imagine parting with it, store it. Trends run their cycles and you may  once again be able to wear your favorite garments  but only when they’re popular.

Keep Short Sleeves for Casual
Don’t show up for a job interview or business meeting in a short-sleeved shirt. Formal and business attire always include long sleeves and a tie.

Men’s Accessory Tips
•Your belt and shoe color should match.
•Make sure your shoes are comfortable.
•Keep your shoes in tip-top shape by polishing them regularly.
•A hanger  will help keep less-worn shoes keep their shape.
•Only lace-up shoes are appropriate with a suit. Save the boots for leisure.
•Your socks should match your shoes.
•Your tie should reach the top of your belt.
•Wear a belt that fits. The prong should fit into one of the middle holes,
  not the first or last one.
•Do not wear a belt and suspenders at the same time, like some of our brothers do.
•Apply cologne before getting dressed to avoid any direct stains.
•Remember, good posture adds height and self-confidence.

Abieyuwa(Edo, Nigeria)says...

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Naija g(Houston, Minnesota, US)says...

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.

Fay(Katy, Texas, US)says...

Actually translates to bravehearted.
