Does the rule of KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) apply to every man? The answer is no. It is not just something relevant to your physique, style interest or attitude, but it may include some external factors as well such as the occasion.
Anyway, every man has a distinct sense of styling. Some like to keep things simple, while others believe in taking things up a notch and appearing bold. All in all, it all depends what you like or prefer.
However, if we want to make things generalize when it comes to style, there should be some basic rules. Shouldn’t it?
If you don’t know where to get started when it comes to spicing up your dressing sense, you may want to consider some following basic style rules.
Your Attitude Matters
You won’t be able to develop a good style sense unless you take it seriously. If you couldn’t care less about how you style, you can never expect to attain a look that turns heads.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to your attitude. Remember that attitude is something that sticks with you in both personal and professional life.
If you give off a slack-ish attitude, nobody would take you seriously and same is true when it comes to giving respect.
If you want all that, you need to change your attitude for good. Start giving a damn about how you want to live your life and how you want to present yourself before others.
We, humans, have the tendency to judge a book by its cover. So, notch up your style if you want to exude a confidence and serious attitude.
Don’t Follow the Trend
When it comes to dressing, it should be better to follow something that is ‘evergreen’ than something that has short half life.
Here, we are talking about trends. Yes, it is something that has a very short half-life which means that you would see something trending for a month or two or a year but no longer than that. Trend has a spiky graph, whereas a ‘timeless’ style has a constant graph.
Some garments or styles simply remain ageless because they can best survive the tides of time. But, you cannot say the same for something which is simply ‘trending’.
Occasion Means Everything
When we talk about occasion don’t just take the social aspect of it but both the social as well as physical aspect, i.e., the venue. Keep in mind that every occasion calls for a distinct dressing style.
You can’t expect to look good in office attire when you’re at a beach wedding. Can you?
Apart from the occasion itself, you also need to adjust your dress as per the weather. A lighter cloth would be best suitable in warm weather while a layered garment would fit the breezy winters.
Invest in Your Wardrobe
Yes, your wardrobe isn’t where all your expenses go but your investment, unless you treat it otherwise. It is better to go with a high-quality dress that lasts for four to five years than a dress that would wear out after a year.
However, investing more on clothing doesn’t mean going bankrupt over a $5000 bespoke three-piece suit. If you don’t have a high-class or elite circle, you wouldn’t need a expensive clothes because you aren’t earning that much money.
But buy at least top-quality clothes that you can afford easily.

It may be the last rule on the list but the most important one, and you need to follow it more religiously than the rest.
Clothing fit is important because it brings out the real you. It makes your appear confident. It makes you appear someone who knows how to dress up.
Remember that no matter how expensive piece of suit you can have in your wardrobe, it won’t look great if it doesn’t fit properly. If you don’t know about your body, go to a tailor and know your measurements.
