What comes to your mind when you read the sentence, “Dress like a man”? Probably suit up or make an effort to look good? Whatever that comes to your mind, if it’s anything less dressy than what a woman would think on reading “Dress like a lady” then you’ve got work to do. And the work is to start dressing up. This blog argues on why it is equally important for men to take care of their appearance as it is for women. After all, gender equality works both ways!
There are loads of research and quotes and social experiments and other inspirational stuff available out there that talks about dressing sharp but we are not going into it, we are only paying attention to the top 3 reasons on why you, Sir, need to dress up!
1. Confidence – You are most confident every single time you wear the best clothes in your wardrobe. Its simple, when you are super dressed you are super confident and it comes out in the way you work and interact. In fact, there is a term for this, its called ‘Enclothed Cognition’ which basically means, dress like a gentleman = behave like a gentleman.
2. Impression – Why do we dress sharp for an interview? Why do we dress up for the first date? That is because we want to make an impression. Someone who is generally dressed well is considered as someone who has his act together, is well organized in life and pays attention to detail. Again, it is basically an extension of, dress like a gentleman = get treated like a gentleman.
3. Life is too short to wear boring clothes! – Come on now, isn’t that totally true? Don’t waste time and buy that jacket you always wanted to, buy those shoes even if you already own 8, buy those khakis and stay trendy!
Gentlemen, don’t be afraid to dress up, don’t be afraid of the attention you may attract, don’t be afraid of being the best-dressed man in the room, when you step out of the door ensure you are putting your best foot forward and always remember Dwayne Johnson’s words – “Cause every girl’s crazy bout a sharp dressed man…”
PS – Please don’t confuse “dressing up” with how you should be wearing a suit every day. My favorite website on making sure you are dressing well is lookastic.com, please give it a try and thank me later 😉
