Socks with patterns always make an outfit look more put together.

3. Button up your shirt all the way even when you’re not wearing a tie.


This is a great way to instantly make an outfit fancier.

4. Switch the laces up on your boots when they get old and ratty.

New laces can make your old, perfectly worn-in shoes look much cleaner and mom-approved.

5. Invest in some vintage frames.


These classic shapes look amazing on most people. Splurging a bit is worth it. It is your face after all.

6. Try wearing a thin scarf.


Thin scarves are every European man’s secret. They are a great way to look more put together.

7. Wear a textured skinny tie.


These ’60s-style ties make all suits look more hip.

8. Buy some classic men’s dress shoes.


You can’t go wrong with some classic Oxford-style men’s shoes. Cognac-colored shoes also look great with jeans.

9. Try a checkered jacket or blazer.


This is a great way to incorporate a simple pattern into an outfit.

10. Try to always wear a suit that fits you well.
