What You Can Do to Overhaul Your Dad Style #CP

Just because you’re a dad, that doesn’t mean you can’t also be stylish. Of course, it’s all too easy to let these things slide and not put as much effort as you used to into how you look and your approach to style and fashion when you’ve got a family to look after and a job to focus on. Nevertheless, if you want to overhaul your style and look more fashionable on your days off, here are some valuable tips.

Find Your Sources of Inspiration

Finding a source of inspiration for your new dad style is definitely very important. Most of us don’t have the time to spend on learning the ins and outs of fashion or staying on top of every new trend. So choose a couple of iconic people who you admire and who you think dress in a way that you would like to emulate. That’ll make this whole task a lot easier for you.

Get the Size Right

The size and fit of your clothing matters far more than most men realize. If you’re constantly wearing clothes that are too big for you, you’ll kill any chance you have at looking stylish. You can wear great clothes and still end up looking terrible if the fit is wrong. That’s why getting suits tailored to your body size and shape is so important.

Do Something Different with Your Hair

It’s important to recognize the fact that your hair has a big impact on your overall aesthetic and style. You can dress great and look the part, but if your hair doesn’t live up to the rest of your outfit, you’ll struggle to feel truly stylish and on point. For some people, that’ll simply mean finding a new style but if you’re also lacking confidence due to baldming, you might also want to consider a FUE hair transplant.

Make Use of Accessories

Accessories are very useful when it comes to making an outfit stand out or taking an ordinary outfit to the next level. Whether it’s a good belt, the right wristwatch or even a necklace, good accessories bring an outfit together and often make all the difference when it comes to your personal style. So be sure to make the most of what they can offer.

Don’t Overdo it with Crazy Prints and Patents; Keep it Simple

When it comes to choosing the styles and prints on the shirts and t-shirts you wear, you should try to remember that less is usually more. If you overdo it with crazy prints and patterns, it sometimes comes across as looking a bit silly and immature, and that’s not what you want. 

If you’re going to overhaul your style, the factors that we’ve discussed above will help you to achieve the outcomes you’re looking for. Fatherhood is never an excuse for poor style, so it’s time to take things to the next level and start feeling positive about how you look when you glance in the mirror.
