You don't enter a marathon to fall over short of the finish line, and you don't take the time to dress yourself to have the whole outfit hit the dust because of minor details. A good outfit will get your point across but a great outfit will get you endless compliments. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule, but here are 4 timeless style guidelines that should be checked before you leave the house.
Although there are places that sell more affordable alternatives to the high fashion brands, when it comes down to the key themes of fashion being, versatility, personal style and comfort, it is often a smart decision to invest in items that you can be sure to get every cent out of them.
Here are 3 items of clothing that we believe you should consider spending the extra money on to get the best return on your investment.
Style does not have to be expensive. In fact, the cost of certain key fashion items is such that you can afford to lash out on a selection of items.
Here are 3 wardrobe basics that won't break the bank, while still contributing a strong personal style.
There is a large fraction of the male population who see the colour white as being 'metro,' I just want to clear the stigma up really quickly. Firstly I would like to reveal the potential origins of this belief.
- A man should be ready to get down on his hands and knees and change a tire at any moment, and you can't do this wearing white.
- No man can be trusted with food and drink, they will spill.
- You can wear a white t shirt, but not white pants as well.
During the 2014/15 summer, I took it upon myself to counter these common beliefs. The worst thing that happened? A girls makeup rubbed on the shoulder of my blazer during the Auckland Races, brown foundation and bright red lipstick. This only resulted in 2 hovering and snickering gentlemen pointing out the fact that it was a risk to wear white but only a "pimp" would have that badge of honour.
Wearing white has a way of jumping out and effecting people, and for me, that is a much greater result than being looked at as 'okay' or 'good'. If you are going to stand out in a crowd and show off your outgoing personality, what better colour to wear than white? The only opinions people will be able to form of you is that you are a risk taker, you have a personal style, you are different to the majority and you give a shit about what you look like.
I rest my case.
