How can you expect to be regarded seriously if you are dressed like an adolescent?
The truth is that no woman ever thinks, “Wow, I want that guy to ask for my number,” when she sees a man in his 40s dressed in spray-on skinny pants.
You require a sophisticated wardrobe in addition to being recognized as a mature and elegant man. When organizing your new adult man’s apparel collection, you need to know what to buy, keep, and donate.
How to Dress Intentionally
Some men describe themselves as “t-shirt and jeans guys.”
Nothing major, right? WRONG.
It means “I’m the kind of person who doesn’t know how to dress for the occasion,” to use a colloquial expression.
Now that you’re an adult, you need to consider your clothing choices and whether they accurately represent who you are.
Therefore, it’s crucial to dress with purpose, whether you’re a plumber who typically gets their hands dirty or a lawyer who visits a nearby café on his day off. Choose outfits that reflect your personality and frequently appeal to the folks you interact with.
It becomes much simpler to dress appropriately for your age and occupation if you continually keep that attitude. You’ll feel fantastic doing it, I promise.
Dressing Like a Leader
It all comes down to having the confidence to enter a room full of men and take leadership.
Standing out is a positive thing for a leader (as long as you dress accordingly)! It takes some getting accustomed to, but maintaining your comfort level and “blending in” could undermine your authority.
The best approach to advance is to present yourself as a leader, even if you aren’t one. It would help if you considered the top executives in your sector and what they wear to the office. As the adage goes, dress for the job you desire, not the job you have.
Additionally, think about the image you want to uphold. Are you an advisor? The typical perception is that consultants dress better than the average person.
Are you a public relations or presenter for a construction company? Then you should probably avoid wearing a checkered shirt (to avoid looking like a construction worker) and consider wearing a brightly colored bowtie or ties instead.
Be courageous. Lead the way. Be a true man. And eventually, you’ll get tremendous respect and trust from your peers and everyone else.
