Refreshing Your Image

Autumn is the perfect time to think about refreshing your image. You need to switch into colder weather clothing anyway, so why not go shopping and make some changes? One problem many men have is knowing where to start. You’ve had the same hairstyle and worn the same kinds of clothes, if not literally the same clothes, for years. It can be hard to change things up without feeling silly or out of your depth. Here are some great tips to help you.

Start with Your Hair

Women change their hairstyles with the seasons. Coloring or cutting every time they get a little bored. It’s harder to do when you’ve got less hair to begin with, but still very possible. Men’s hair is much more diverse than it used to be, with men’s salons offering much more than the old-fashioned barbers used to. Consider growing it out a little to keep you warm over the colder months, or try a slightly different shade. You don’t need to make bold changes to see a difference, but, don’t be afraid to try something new and out of your comfort zone. Remember, it’ll grow back!

Embrace Movember

The Movember Foundation endeavors to raise awareness of prostate cancer. One of the ways they do this is by encouraging men to grow a mustache over the course of November. This is a great cause, and you never know, you might look awesome with a tache!

Experiment with Clothes

Is your wardrobe full of the same colors and styles? This is something that happens to most of us. We find something that’s comfortable and suits us and stick with it for 20 years. Don’t! Branch out and try new things. If you’re not sure where to start or have no idea what you might like, you’ve got a few options. You could simply head to a large department store and try things on. You could hire a personal shopper. OR, you could try a subscription service. This five four club review explains how this particular box lets you try new styles, from basics to occasion wear and new trends, without feeling stuck.

Shoes

One of the first things people notice about a man is his shoes. This makes it a great place to try something new. You’ll need a good pair of warm and waterproof boots ready for winter, but why not try something a little different. You could get leather trainers, brogues, plan black leather, brown, tan, gray, the options nowadays are endless. The men’s side of shoe shops is finally catching up with the women’s in terms of choice and style.

Exercise

Your image isn’t just about what you wear. Adding regular exercise to your routine can help you to stay lean and healthy. But, it will also ensure you stand tall and confident. Which always looks better than being slumped and slouchy.

Making some changes to your appearance can improve your confidence and mood as well as making you appear more attractive to others. So, don’t be afraid of change. Be brave.
