When you’re a busy man always running around with a million things to do, you can start to lose yourself and who you are. Often, it is your sense of style that is the first thing to be lost, and you can end up feeling like a mess when you don’t have so much time to focus on fashion anymore, even if you actually look fine!

The good news is, there are lots of simple things you can do to look and feel more put together no matter how busy you might be. 

Declutter your closet

Go through your wardrobe and ruthlessly throw out anything that doesn’t fit you well, anything that is past its best, and anything you don’t actually like. That way, whatever you put on in the morning, no matter how much of a rush you are in, at least it will fit you be of a decent quality, and be something you like. When you learn how to manage clutter it makes life much easier.

Find your signature perfume

Go to the beauty counter, check out as many perfume brands as you can, and see which scents lift you up and make you feel like a smart, sophisticated woman. That way, even if you don’t have time to dress up, you can spritz a little of your signature scent on and you will instantly feel uplifted and more put together.

Add an accessory

Even if you are wearing a basic jeans and t-shirt outfit or your mum dungarees, if you add a spectacular accessory like a stunning silk scarf or a statement necklace, your outfit will instantly look 100 times more put together and you will feel a little more dressed up too.

Learn how to do a French twist
