We’re now in the midst of 2020 – it’s the perfect time to start planning your style upgrade. Whether you want to add a few new accessories, make an investment in a luxury piece or change your whole wardrobe, we have a few tips and tricks to give your style a little upgrade.
Purge the wardrobe
Stand in front of your wardrobe or your drawers and just take a minute to look at the clothes you own. Do you own multiple t-shirts of the same colour? Do you own a variety of jeans in the same style? If you find the same style and colour repeated throughout your wardrobe it’s time to have a clearout. Take each item out and ask yourself: “When was the last time I wore this?” if you can’t remember, get rid of it. Consider clearing out clothes which:
- Are damaged
- Are stained
- Don’t fit anymore.
Quality over quantity
Rather than buying three cheap t-shirts – you know the ones; you buy three at a time because the price is reasonable and you’ve bought them before so you know they don’t last long and the colour fades in the wash – instead, buy one high-end t-shirt. While it costs more, unlike fast fashion, premium brands use high-quality fabrics and so last longer. As the saying goes: buy cheap, buy twice.
Invest in a quality watch
Everyone should have a luxury accessory, and a watch is a great place to start. While more and more people are using their phones to check the time, a watch is a stylish accessory which upgrades any outfit to the next level. There are a range of luxury watch manufacturers which can offer different things:
- To make a statement – Rolex Day-Date
- For the adventurer – Omega Seamaster
- Simple elegance – Patek Philippe Calatrava
Not only does a luxury watch look striking with every outfit, but if you take care of it – have it serviced, keep it clean and don’t damage it – you could make a big profit if you come to sell your watch in the future. If you already have a high-end watch, you might want to give it a little upgrade. You can easily sell your watch online and upgrade for a new model.
Understand how to take care of your clothes
Taking your style to the next level doesn’t have to be spending lots of money on a new wardrobe, but refreshing what you currently own can spruce up your wardrobe. Things that can be done to reduce spend yet upgrade your style:
- Polish your shoes
- Clean your trainers
- Soak stains as soon as possible
- Visit the tailors to ensure your clothes fit properly.
Invest in colour
While monochrome is sleek and smart, it’s simple. Add a pop of colour to your wardrobe to bring life to any outfit. You don’t have to dive straight in with a bright yellow shirt – a subtle blush pink shirt will get you started and can be paired with dark blue jeans or black trousers.
