Dress Your Age If Your 30
When a man turns 30 it is a tough age. They are no longer a care free college student and may even be ready to settle down. Men at this age seem to have a hard time knowing how to dress. The ways that they dressed in their college years seems a little immature and they are not quite ready to dress like their grandfather. This is where to many men start making mistakes with their wardrobe. They think they are dressing “adult” but what they are actually doing is dressing boring with no emotion.
But this does not have to stay this way. At 30 a man might understand it is time to settle down but they are still young enough to change something like their wardrobe so that they can still turn heads and look professional when needed.
Young At 30
When a man was a teenager he had no problem experimenting with his clothes, he was willing to take risks to see what worked. Well we are here to tell you that you are still young at 30. No, this does not mean that you can get away with wearing some of the outrageous outfits that you wore at 16 but it does mean that you can venture outside the box at times. Your wardrobe does not have to be boring it does not mean that you have to wear a boring suit all of the time. Throw in a vintage tee once in a while. Spice it up a little.
Buy Those Special Items
If you already have all of the basic essentials in your wardrobe then spring for those few special items. This could be that $500 briefcase that will take your whole look up two notches or it could be buying that custom made suit. Do not let the high prices on these items stop you. A few nice pieces in your wardrobe can change your whole style. You will go from boring to stylish instantly.
Build a Unique Style
This is the time in your life to build your own unique style. Let your wardrobe describe you. You do not have to go broke doing this just buy a few unique pieces of clothing that allows some of your personality to show through. This could be something simple as a unique piece of jewelry to a new style of jeans.
Distinguish your duds
Does this seem familiar to you? You wear the same clothes to work that you do to play? The nice jacket
you wear to work is the same one you wear going out for the night? The blazer that seems to work so well at the office is the same one you wear to take your girl out? Does it sound like you? It is a huge mistake if it does. You need to distinguish your work clothes from your play clothes. Yes, it is alright to have a few pieces that can cross over but you need separate pieces that are meant for play and for work.
What You Should Be Wearing At 30
You are no longer that man who just started out (hopefully). You have grown in the company that you are working at. You may now even be in management. So quit dressing like that guy on his first day. You need to let others know that you are dressed for success that you have gained and deserve. Buy a pair of Italian made leather shoes or a custom made suit. Make your self stand out from the new guy.
We are sure you know now that you do not need a tux for a formal affair. A nice suit will do. The important thing is in the accessories. Do not wear too much jewelry. A nice watch and a ring are plenty enough. Wearing to much jewelry will make you look like a guy showing off and that is a negative effect that you do not want. You could also use a pocket square. This is a nice addition to any suit.
You probably feel you are too responsible to be out partying all weekend. Maybe you are married and even a dad but that does not mean that you have to live in sweats or old jeans. Buy some nice jeans and maybe a pair of cargos and some tees and a blazer and you can look nice on your weekends also.
