So, if you want to look your best without having to drop a bunch of money to reinvest into your wardrobe, there is a lot of tips and tricks that you can implement into your daily style. Most of the time they are free or close to nothing , and they instantly revitalize your wardrobe. So, today I’m going to show you five things to do just that.
1. Use double sided tap
Use double sided scotch tape to keep your tie in place. The most annoying and sloppiest sight in a gentleman is when his tie is swinging from side to side. Therefore, that’s what’s a tie bar is for and there’s even tie stays. However, if none of these resources are at hand, double sided scotch tape can do the job. All you have to do is grab your scotch tape then regarding your tie, grab the thin end and put it behind the thick end. Finally, stick it to the back of the thin end as well as your shirt. This will make your tie stay in place all day and it’s a very cheap hack to put together.
2. The hanger trick
So what you have to do is go to your closet and arrange all the hangers to be backwards, instead of putting it right side forward. What this is going to do is every time you pull something out to wear it , when you put it back , make sure you put it back the right side. Which leaves all the clothes you don’t wear on a backwards hanger, that’s going to be a clear sign that you don’t wear those items anymore. Therefore, strip your wardrobe of everything you don’t like and only keep what you actually use.
3. Keeping your shirt tucked in
Keeping your shirt tucked is a problem that many men face everyday. Once, your shirt starts to get untucked , it creates a muffin top which causes the illusion of you gaining about 10 pounds. However, I have 2 solutions to this problem. First, tuck your shirt into your underwear, we know it’s gross , but then again its super effective. So if no one is going to see you in your underwear , you have nothing to worry about. Tucking your shirt into your underwear can keep your shirt tucked in all day. But let’s say you can’t get over the gross factor then I would recommend shirt stays. Shirt stays aren’t free of course, but they are very affordable, so if you don’t want to tuck your shirt into your underwear, shirt stays are pretty much a necessity. They are a bit hard to find , because not many retailers produce them, but I recommend KK&Jay. They are really high quality , USA made shirt stays, in addition they are super affordable.
4. Repurpose your old clothing
Instead of throwing away your old clothes , see if could use those items to your advantage. For example, let’s take a dress shirt, as you can see this is what the collar looks like, plus it’s a very old shirt that I got bored of. Let’s Rejuvenate it!
And, this is the after , as you can see I cut off the collar , which gave it a completely different look. This shirt alone would cost $30-$40 in Zara or H&M , but just with a old shirt and a pair of scissors you can completely transform the shirt.
5. Keeping your pants up
Wearing a belt on a suit, is not the best option , because rather than being an aesthetic accessory, it divides the suit in half, which takes away from the suit’s elegancy. That’s why I always say not to wear a belt, but rather get side-tab adjusters on your trousers or if that’s too much, the next alternative is much cheaper, which is to wear suspenders. The great thing about suspenders is that it’s a cheap alteration and for around $5-$10, they’ll add suspender buttons on the inside. Now , on top of suspenders being a more stylish option, it’s also a far more superior method to keep your trousers up. Suspenders use your shoulders as anchor points to hold your trousers up, therefore they will stay in place all day.
