It’s true guys: What you wear can effect your mood – a lot! So, if the short & dreary days of Winter have left you feeling a bit low (or maybe you’re glum because Santa just didn’t quite deliver on Christmas morning) we have the answer. Consider these three simple wardrobe tweaks the “perk me up” you’ve been searching for – Happy New You!
1. EMBRACE THE COLORFUL KHAKI
You probably already have a pair (or 5) in some classic shade of beige. Heck, you probably got your first pair when you were 5! They are classics, after all. But switch up that go-to hue for a muted, shade of burgundy, blue or green and suddenly, you may notice a spring in your step! A flat front style, like these from Dockers, keep the look crisp & modern.
2. SEARCH OUT THE PERFECT PRINTED SPORTSHIRT
Again, it’s a classic with a subtle twist. Give the cotton button down a soft pattern – think paisleys, pale florals and the like – and you’ve got yourself one chic shirt! Love these cotton picks from INC. Take it easy on the eye and wear with solid bottoms in white, blue or grey. Denim does the trick just fine.
3. NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: THE COTTON SWEATER
When you never know what the weather will bring, the cotton sweater is a must. Opt for a half-zip at the neck, like these from super swanky line Tasso Elba, to let your stylish layers shine through. When things heat up, take it off and wear around your shoulders for a rich, preppy vibe – or just hit up the tennis courts.
