Whether you’re planning to hit the town with your buds or make an impression at your big presentation, dressing well and looking sharp can be extremely important to you – and the people around you. And while it may be tempting to just roll out of bed and throw on whatever clothes are in your closet (as long as they’re not too wrinkled or dirty), that probably won’t get you very far with your friends or at work. Here are 10 tips for nailing men’s ultimate grooming so that you look polished whenever you need to look sharp.

1) Remember the Basics

  • Make sure your clothes fit. One of the easiest ways to look more put together is to wear clothes that don’t hang off you. It will also help you feel more confident about yourself.
  • Manage your facial hair. Facial hair can make you look older and less professional, so be careful with it!

2) Experiment with Color

Color is an easy way to spice up your outfit. One of the best ways to experiment with color is by matching your shoes to your clothes. Matching the color of your shoes will make you look taller, more stylish, and more put-together.

3) Pair Patterns Properly

To understand how to pair patterns properly, it is important to first know what the different types of patterns are:

  • Stripes- stripes are generally a one-color line that goes in one direction.
  • Polka Dots- polka dots have a multitude of colors in each dot.
  • Plaids- plaids are generally made up of diagonal lines with two or more colors.

4) Tailor Your Business Suit

A well-tailored suit does wonders for the proportions of your body and will make you look taller, slimmer, and more put together. The best way to find a suit that fits your body is to go shopping in person so you can try on different styles and sizes.

5) Invest in a Pair of High-Quality Shoes

Invest in a pair of high-quality shoes. It’s one of the most important investments you can make, especially if you work in an environment where your shoes are exposed to dirt or water on a regular basis. A high-quality shoe will last 2x as long as a cheap pair, not to mention that it will look better.

6) Don’t Be Afraid to Try Accessories

Don’t be afraid to try accessories. It may seem like it’s just not your style, but that doesn’t mean you won’t rock it. Try a fedora or a scarf with a suit or dress pants. You’ll be surprised how much more confident you feel in your own skin when you’re wearing something new!

7) Professional Haircuts are a Must!

Professional haircuts can make you feel more confident, even if you don’t style your hair. Be sure to bring a picture of what you want, so that your barber or stylist can see what you have in mind. It’s also important to keep in mind the rest of your hair—if it’s curly, keep it styled with the natural wave. If it’s straight, let some pieces hang loose.

8) Shave Your Beard Like a Pro

If you’ve never shaved before, or if you want to hone your skills, there are a few essential things to know. One of the most important is that shaving isn’t just about having a good-looking face. It’s also about keeping your skin healthy and preventing razor burns, ingrown hairs, and other skin irritations. When shaving, always use a sharp blade. Dull blades can cause nicks in the skin that can lead to infection. In no time you will be able to shave your beard like a pro.

9) Be Proud of Your Body Hair (or lack thereof!)

One of the best ways to feel confident is by embracing your masculinity. However, there are a few things you can do to make it even better. If you’re a man with body hair, be proud of it! Having hair on your chest or in other places means you’re not only masculine but that you have more testosterone than others who have less hair. And if you don’t like your facial hair? There are many products out there that will help get rid of it so that your skin is smoother.

10) Practice Good Hygiene

It sounds obvious, but the first step to looking your best is good hygiene. Make sure to brush your teeth, wash your face and hands, trim your nails, wear deodorant, and change clothes often. For many people, these are things they do automatically every day or every few days. But if you’re not really following through with these steps on a regular basis then it might be time to reevaluate what you’re doing in the morning and evening before going out into the world.
