1.

Develop your own personal style and let it evolve naturally over the years.

2.

Mix intelligently. Pair basics with pieces that are more special or innovative in either shape, fabrication or color. It will make you look sharp and modern.

3.

Don't look at yourself in the mirror for too long.

4.

When you pair unusual things together, do it in a very spontaneous way so it feels casual and stylish without trying too hard.

5.

Put a smile on your face— there's nothing more welcoming.

6.

A good pair of shoes is essential to complement any outfit, whether it's dressy or sporty. Sometimes it's good to let a pair of shoes take center stage.

7.

Groom yourself according to your age and personality, and be really effortless about it.

8.

Exercise. It helps you look and feel better, and fit into almost every kind of clothing.
