How to dress like a powerful man?

Ever heard of ‘power dressing’? The true essence of power dressing lies in the confident image conveyed through an artful and immaculate yet stylish look rather than piling on a number of branded items that echoes only money. You want the clothes to reflect your personality and choices.

To show the ones around you that you mean business (with your dressing style), here are a few tips:

1.      Don’t buy the cheapest items –

The cheap will look and feel cheap, in terms of material, texture, fit and quality and this would, in turn, impact the complete look. Opting for a much better brand will give you a premium and rich look and feel and will be durable too. For example, if you buy a duplicate Puma T-shirt for say, Rs 250, you can wear it for four or five times but can be easily identified as non-genuine. On the other hand, if you spend a 100 more and buy a better brand like Roadster, Wrogn, UCB etc you won’t regret it because it offers premium styles and durability.

2.      Don’t show off logos

Though there are several premium brands that have apparels and accessories with their logos standing out, it is in fact best to avoid the practice of investing in them.

This is because, a recognizable brand would mean people may recognize its price as well. Though its an advantage in the case of premium labels, it can backfire when you are opting for cheap brands.


3.      Have at least 4 pairs of shoes

Have at least 4 parts of shoes and wear them based on occasions. You need at least 2 casual shoes.

Your shoes are silently capable of speaking a lot about the man you are.Hence, its essential that you own some smart pairs of shoes that are versatile and can make a style statement. So make sure you invest in a good pair of black/brown oxfords & brogues (formal) and another pair of casual shoes to ensure you have one for every occasion.

4.      Fit – All dress should fit well.

The devil is always in the details. You might be wearing a shirt from the latest collection of Ralph Lauren but if the fit isn’t right, then nothing is! Be it a shirt, t shirt, trousers or blazer, the fit is and should the king always. And that is a fashion mantra that you should always keep in mind. Fit factor has the power to transform any normal outfit to dapper.
