Well, it’s 2019, and it’s time to change things up a little. Whether you want a complete makeover, or just a slight upgrade to your style, you should always keep in mind the most modern and relevant trends. You want to stand out, after all, and you should always strive to look your best. And don’t be afraid, updating your wardrobe won’t cost you an arm and a leg if you know what you are doing. In fact, all the money in the world won’t make you look good if you have no sense of style or taste. We’re pretty much certain that you can think of a dozen examples of people who have more money than sense.

Find a good tailor

The first point in this article is practically a cheat code, to be completely honest. What people don’t really understand is that a well-fitted shirt or dress will look better than the finest two-sizes-larger Armani suit and a too-tight-to-breathe Michael Kors gown. And the best way to guarantee an article of clothing will fit you is by going to a tailor. We all differ in our bone structure, body type, the width of our shoulders and the narrowness of our hips. Acquiring the services of a professional company, like Belance, for example, will do wonders for all of your sartorial needs. And having a good fit is not all.

When you are speaking with a tailor, you can specify what colors you want, what patterns you admire. A good tailor can advise you on the best style, shade, and look for your body type and your skin tone. You may also learn a thing or two, and get some advice on what to wear with the suit you just bought. The right cufflinks, belt, shoes can make an already excellent piece seem outstanding.

Get the basics down

You don’t need to invest in the best possible suit, dress shoes, blazer, and a Rolex watch in order to upgrade your style. In fact, a big part of that is to simply get the basics down. No matter what year it is, you should always be sure that you have a well-rounded, and simple, wardrobe. Only later can you begin to build from there. So, one regular white crew neck shirt, some dark denim jeans, chino pants, and a nice dress shirt.

Choose things that fit your build, but also try to take care of your body as much as possible. A regular white t-shirt can make a homely man look sloppy, or get a guy who works out regularly looking like Marlon Brando. Don’t be lazy. Just because your legs look good in a pair of jeans doesn’t mean it’s okay if they sag around your waist area. Look around, try to find a pair that fits your build. The last thing you want is to look like you’re wearing a diaper.

You should always strive to develop and advance the style and look you already have. However, if you actually don’t feel you have your own sense of style, you have two options. One is to just go crazy, and buy what you think is best. This may be the most expensive option and, to be completely honest, you may face ridicule and end up with horrible combinations. Another, slower and safer option, is to find a style you like, a way a certain celebrity dresses, for example. Emulate this person, and as time goes on, add and modify as much as you want to make it your own.

Be careful with accessories

While everybody’s style is different, we rarely advise you go overboard with accessories. For example, you want to harmonize the colors you are wearing. This can either be achieved by getting the right shade that goes well with another, or by contrasting them entirely. What you don’t want to do is to have everything match. Furthermore, don’t overdo everything. If in doubt, less is more when it comes to accessories.

It’s always the little things…

The little things always matter in everything, and fashion is not exempt from this fact. The little details and combinations, the small and continual effort over time are what makes something move from pretty good, to amazing. So, think about what you want people to focus on. Do you want people to notice your suit? Then buy a watch with a simple design. The same goes if you bought cufflinks you are proud of, that you want people to notice. Getting a haircut that goes well with the shape of your face and head will improve your style immensely.


And there you have it guys, a couple of tips on how to upgrade your style for 2019. Just remember to take care of the little things, keep your accessories in line, and focus on getting the basics down. And, of course, if you can afford it, you should visit a professional tailor.
