Nailing your personal style can be tricky. In your twenties, you’re in the best shape you’ll ever be and you can get away with wearing pretty much anything you want. This makes your twenties the right time to start building your personal style and set the foundations of your wardrobe for the years to come.
As a twenty-something-year-old, you’re lucky enough to be in a good shape without having to hit the gym daily so make the most of it! Emphasise your figure by going for slim cuts (but avoid skinny cuts). Slim jeans and trousers will give you a sophisticated yet relaxed look, and ensure you look your best at all times.
Know your colour
Figure out the colours that suit you best: as a rule of thumb, lighter colours complement darker skin tones (think, yellow, pastels, white and pale blue). If you have a lighter skin complexion, go for richer and darker shades instead, like navy, burgundy, brown and dark green.
Don’t be afraid to experiment
To figure out your personal style, you need to be bold and experiment. Try out different colours, cuts and styles, and experiment with patterns and trendy items. You can add seasonal pieces to your wardrobe to freshen it up.
Tailor and barber
You don’t need to spend a fortune to look good. Rather, you need to learn the difference between cheap and inexpensive – a budget suit can you make you look like you’ve stepped out from the pages of a fashion magazine if it’s fitted right. Befriend your local tailor and a barber – they can help you go a long way towards looking your best.
Take care of your shoes
Clothes make the first impression but if there’s one aspect of your outfit that you should pay particular attention to, it’s your shoes. Get into the habit of cleaning your shoes regularly and maintaining them the right way, whether they’re sleek and shiny formal shoes or a pair of trendy trainers.
