With the rise of man buns and beard-scaping, now the modern day gentleman is paying extra close attention to the style of clothing he wears and the way he carries himself. Research has shown that taking care of your appearance has a direct correlation with success in your professional and personal life. As the ultimate modern-day gentleman, Medy Navani, Founder and Creative Director of Design Haus Medy shares his views on why dressing well is key and offers simple tips to ensure your look is on point.
Look Good, Feel Good
In most cases, looking good means feeling good, and there is no better state of mind than being confident and self-assured within oneself. In fact, research has shown that physical appearance is closely linked to confidence levels. Create a morning routine and take your time to get ready in order to put your best foot forward, which in turn will have a positive impact on your mindset for the rest of the day.
Staying in Shape
We all know that exercise is vital to keeping a healthy body, but it is equally important for creating a healthy mind. When we work out, our brains release endorphins, which is the “happy hormone”.
Try going for a light jog, swim, or even have a few rounds on a punching bag; it will provide you with an added dose of energy, a positive outlook for the day, and of course, help maintain weight.
A well-dressed and groomed man is instantly seen as professional upon first impression and is subsequently taken more seriously than his “scruffy” counterparts. Showing up to a first meeting wearing a beautifully fitted outfit, hair well-groomed, and beard either stylishly trimmed or cleanly shaven will present self-assurance, which will ultimately be projected onto others. First impressions are important so make sure yours counts.
