No matter your lifestyle, it’s important to remember that your style choices matter. It helps to give a first impression of you. It gives strangers a slight glimpse into who you are. And it provides an outlet for you to express yourself every day. So, no matter your background or lifestyle, why not try to dress like a millionaire? A fresh, clean, expensive look is the perfect plan for anyone to express themselves, and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. So, if you want to know how to dress like you just won the lottery, read on!
Tips for Dressing Fancy for Men
First, it’s important to remember that it is possible to find pieces at a reasonable price that also look expensive. There’s nothing wrong with getting a designer suit at a Men’s Warehouse when they are on sale for “Buy One/Get One Free”, which happens more often than you would think. On the other hand, there’s nothing wrong with getting a nice-looking, off-brand suit at Kohl’s. Most people really can’t tell the difference. As long as you look clean and polished, they’ll think you look like a million bucks.
Another key factor in this is using a few good statement pieces that you can mix and match accordingly. In other words, grabbing 2-3 suits, 2-3 shirts, and 2-3 ties can take you a long way. Try to get all of them in very different colors that all work together, as well, so you can have 6-9 outfits that look different but all come from those same few pieces.
Accessorizing is also going to make or break you here. Wearing a nice watch, a stylish pair of sunglasses, or a lapel pin can really take your look to the next level. Accessorizing is the key factor that ties a look together, so be sure to add accessories to your look without overdoing it. A couple of nice accessories will make you look like a millionaire. Adding too many will look as if you are peacocking (or trying too hard).
The Essential Pieces to Include in Your Wardrobe
When dressing the part of a millionaire, it is very important to focus on the items that you should be wearing. The following pieces are essential in your million-dollar look:
If you want to dress expensive (or at least look like you do), there is not better jacket for you to wear than a suit jacket. This can be a traditional suit jacket in blue, black, or grey, a more flamboyant suit jacket, or even a suit jacket made from faux suede if you prefer a more rugged look.
The tie is optional depending on the day or event, but it is still important to have a nice tie to throw on at any moment. If you’re going for a more casual look, bring the tie in your car but don’t wear it. You can use the tie to transition your look from day to night.
Like we mentioned, accessories are crucial. A nice, detailed lapel pin can truly add the money factor to any look.
Just like the suit jacket, dress shoes are a pivotal piece in dressing like a millionaire. Be sure to wear these daily, as you can always dress them up or down depending on the rest of your outfit. If you walk around wearing old sneakers, it doesn’t give the impression you want in this case.
We saved the pants for last, as they can be very versatile based on the look you are trying to create. Do you want a more upscale look? Then stick to the traditional dress pants that match your suite jacket. But what if you want a more casual look? If you’d like a trendy, more casual look, wearing your jeans with your suit jacket and a button-up is a great choice. Jeans do not cheapen a look- so long as they are dark jeans without holes. A nice, clean pair of dark jeans can do wonders for you look. Imagine wearing jeans with a button-up dress shirt and a faux suede suit jacket. Viola! You have an expensive looking casual outfit.
All in all, dressing like a millionaire can be done by anyone. As long as you take the time to carefully think through your pieces and presentation, you are sure to look like a million bucks.
