Even the most stylish look can easily be ruined by things that might seem small to you but are, in fact, real game-changers. If you want to always look your best, you just have to follow some simple style rules, which won’t cost you a fortune, but will make you look like a million dollars.
If the fabric looks like it’s been washed dozens of times, and its color is now far from the original, it’ll make you look less than put-together. Yellow or grey tones in a once-white article of clothing will make you look messy and a little dirty. Probably the most unrefined of all are sweat stains on white clothes.
Sleeves sloppily pushed up like an accordion will turn you into the poor soul who’s never worn a button-up shirt in their life. Remember your pockets are not intended to carry your whole life, and that includes your wallet, phone, chewing gum, and keys. Not only suits look cheaper with stretched-out pockets, the same is true for jeans and jackets. Some fabrics look great but can easily get stretched out at the knee every time you sit down. And next thing you know, your pants look like you’ve been wearing them for ages.
When people see dandruff flakes on your shoulders, the only thing they want to do is to keep their distance. Going OTT with the jewelry, especially in combination with bright make-up, can turn even a carefully planned outfit into something awkward. If you don’t apply beauty products correctly or touch it up throughout the day, your makeup can make you look older and tired. Lipstick or food on your teeth, a small hole in your dress, smudges on your glasses: all this seemingly minor stuff is actually quickly and easily noticed by people we’ve just met, and it definitely doesn’t give a good impression.

-Wash your brights and dark colors (separately, of course!) in cold water and don’t tumble dry.
-If you see signs of yellowing, simply add hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, or lemon juice when you wash your whites. Don’t let sweat stains set.
-To look as stylish as can be, unfasten the buttons on your sleeve, straighten the material out, and roll the cuff up your arm, making 1-2 careful turns for the entire width of the cuff.
-Carry your stuff in a bag, not in your pockets. If you’re a guy, get a briefcase or just carry your belongings in your hands.
-If you just can’t give up wearing your favorite harem pants, then combine them with a plain tee and sneakers or sandals.
-Simply pull your pants up at the knee a bit each time you sit down to avoid knee stretching.
-If you see dandruff on your clothes, consult a hair and scalp specialist figure out the root of the problem. Until then, avoid wearing dark-colored tops.
-Follow Coco Chanel’s advice and remove the accessory that you put on last before leaving the house. After all, this is usually the one that turns out to be excessive.
-Style your beard according to your face shape. Major beard shaping should be done in a barbershop. In the future, you can maintain the shape yourself by using a trimmer.
-Buy jeans that fit you and avoid styles with a significantly low waistline.
-Use good quality makeup products, they tend to last longer. If your makeup is beyond anything that a touchup can fix, it’s better to just wash it off.
-Before leaving the house, take a few minutes to critically examine yourself in the mirror. The same should be done after drinking coffee or having a bite to eat.
