We've all been there…

You need to give that big presentation. You're not sure if you look great, but you woke up a mere hour before you're scheduled to speak.

You show up, a shoddy collar on display, necktie loosened, and unshaven scruff on display for all to see. All of this simply because you failed to appraise yourself.

1. Make Sure Your Collar Is Crisp

Collars may seem small, but they can affect your outfit in a big way. A floppy collar gives a slightly slovenly look, even if the rest of your outfit is on point. You'll look as though something is just… off, and therefore throw off the rest of the outfit.

You don't need that.

Casual shirts with buttoned collars help considerably, but they're not suited for dressier occasions. For this reason, I recommend you invest in either a shirt that comes with collar stays or purchasing collar supports to use with all of your shirts. Trust me, it'll be worth the investment.

 

2. Polish Your Shoes

A good rule of thumb is to polish your shoes after every use. At the very least, every week.

However, you can always give them a quick polish just before leaving the house. Believe it or not, so-so shoes that are well-cleaned look nicer than full-grain leather that's been neglected.

 

3. Leverage The Power Of Fragrance

It's no secret that scent plays a powerful role in how others perceive us. In fact, it's been proven in countless scientific studies.

There are thousands – maybe millions – of scent combinations out there. Each one reacts differently to your own body chemistry. As a basic rule of thumb, know that musky scents tend to raise aggression in women while floral and fruity scents do the same in men.

This applies to you as well – a masculine scent might relax you and draw the attention of the ladies. All the while, a more floral fragrance may give you a boost in confidence and reinvigorate you. It's all about your personal preference.

Just pay attention to the basic anatomy of fragrances:

  • Top Notes – The first impression. Light molecules mean that they'll give way quickly to the next layer.
  • Heart Notes – The middle layer and the core of any fragrance. They last for about an hour.
  • Base Notes – Where the densest molecules lie, usually consisting of masculine scents. These can last for several hours, even for a day!

 

4. Check The Mirror For Blemishes

No, I don't mean pimples. I mean stains on your shirt, food crumbs from lunch lingering on your jacket, and food stuck in your teeth!

Look in the mirror to make sure nothing's amiss.

It's always worth it to give yourself a periodic checkup in the mirror. I'm not encouraging you to stroke your own vanity, rather I'm advising you to assess yourself every once in a while.

 

5. Hide Wrinkles Using A Jacket

You have a favorite dress shirt – 100% cotton in an Oxford weave. It's got Mother of Pearl buttons and a medium spread in the collar. It's the perfect intersection between casual and formal.

And you forgot to iron it.

Gents, it's not the end of the world. This quick men's style tip has saved me more than once.

If you can, simply iron the front of the shirt and then throw on the jacket you were going to use. If you keep it on, no one will see the wrinkles.

 

6. Take Care Of Bad Breath

There are tons of ways to do this. You can start with the basics: Brushing your teeth in the mornings and evenings.

A bright smile makes a big difference during a first impression.

You can take it a step further to get a second wind throughout the day. Take some mints in the middle of your day, or take some mouthwash with you to work.

Heck, drinking some water might help – you'd be surprised as to how bad breath manifests in a dry mouth.

 

7. Take A Power Nap

30 minutes – that's all you need. 30 minutes will be enough to rejuvenate you and put you back in Kickass Mode.

Napping isn't lazy, it's productive.

I do it before all my conference talks. It's a great way to relax and regain some much-needed energy before a big moment. That combination cannot be matched.

 

8. Rinse Your Face For An Energy Boost

You've been up since 4 AM and it's 2 PM. There's still a ways to go before you're done with your day.

Cold water can wake any man up!

This is where more water comes in. By splashing some water in your face, maybe even through your hair to slicken it, you give yourself a quick boost. It may be just the push you need to finish the day.

 

9. Bring It All Together With A Tie

Even if you don't wear a tie often, casual ties are potent tools for when you need to spruce up an otherwise casual look.

This is where you can have some fun with patterns on ties.

A knit tie is a perfect accouterment for an elevated-yet-relaxed outfit. It lends credence toward a conscious approach to style while remaining true to the country club-style aesthetic.

 

10. Leverage The Power Of Color

As humans, we are conditioned to perceive certain colors differently. If you start to see every color in your wardrobe as a psychological weapon, then you can gain a semblance of control over how others perceive you. This can aid you when picking a tie, or choosing a pocket square as a final adjustment.

Let's go through those colors briefly:

  • Red – Associated with boldness, extroversion, seduction, and passion.
  • Purple – True to its Roman roots, purple is associated with imperial power. This means that wearing it can convey a sense of regality and elegance.
  • Black/Charcoal – Authority, plain and simple.
  • Blue – Percieved as calming and peaceful.

See? They might come in handy!
