4 Simple Steps to Make Your Wardrobe More Grown-Up

The way you dress can say a lot about who you are, andwhile your license or ID may give away your age, your clothes don’t have tofollow suit. By following these simple but effective steps, you can finallystart showing off your sophisticated self to others.  

1. Skip the graphic T-shirts.

Graphic t-shirts may have looked cool when you were still in school, but now that you’re an adult, it’s time to ditch them for a more mature outfit – and outlook – on life. You can still wear them every once in a while for a casual gathering, though.

The one principle in making your wardrobe appearsharper once you graduate college (or even once you hit college) is that youshouldn’t try too hard. The simpler your outfit is, the better.

2. Go for fit.

Forget shopping for sizes – most clothing brands have different sizing systems, which means your clothes can either always be one size too large or too small. Having a tailor get your measurements is key to ensuring that your clothes fit you every time.

3. Learn to iron your dress clothes.

While you may have never had to learn how to iron your clothes when you were younger, times have changed – it’s now up to you to look presentable to the people you will be interacting with throughout the day.

Be sure to iron the back of the collar and not the front. A good press gets rid of the wrinkles without pressing the life out of your clothes. Remember to hit the shoulders and sleeves and finish up the rest of the cloth in one direction.

If you absolutely have to, buy clothes that don’t needmuch ironing. Not only will you save yourself a lot of time in having to keepyour shirts pressed, but you’ll also save yourself a lot of money from havingto pay the electric bill.

4. Avoid fashion trends.

While experimenting every once in a while in terms of style can be a lot of fun, you’re better off not chasing after the latest fashion trends – they’ll keep coming and going, it’s almost impossible to keep track of them, and you’ll only be left more confused than before.

Certain trends may be the “in” thing now, but come the next few months you’ll be left with a pile of clothes that are no longer in style and are taking up space in your closet. When that does happen, all the money you spent on those once-trendy clothes will essentially turn to waste.

Again, when it comes to dressing like a grown-up, there’s one principle: keep things as simple as possible.
