Get the Clothes Tailored

A tailor’s job is to ensure your clothes fit you in the best way they can. While baggy clothes have been seen more recently on the catwalks, it is important to spend time and money on clothes that fit you properly. 

If you have clothes that no longer fit (for example, if you’ve recently lost weight), tailoring is also a great way to be more sustainable. Rather than funding fast fashion companies, you can make use of what you have. 

Invest in core wardrobe staples

Once you’ve sorted out your wardrobe, you might find you have a few different items of clothing that don’t go together. If this is the case, you might need to invest in some more basics. Basic items of clothing can help you piece together a wide variety of looks. 

Some core items of clothing could be a pair of dark-coloured trousers, a pair of comfortable jeans or a button-down shirt. 


You’ll be amazed when you see the difference between outfits that have and haven’t been accessorised. The world of accessorising may seem complicated and daunting, but it can be a great way to touch up your outfit and add a little flair.

 If you’re not sure where to start, some men’s diamond earrings can add a quirky edge to your outfit. If earrings aren’t your thing, you could even consider a necklace or chunky bracelet. 

Look after your appearance 

If you’ve invested time and money revamping your clothing, you need to look after it. Rather than throwing clothes blindly in drawers, use wooden hangers to neatly store your shirts and shoe trees for your best shoes. If you can afford it, have your suit dry-cleaned and pressed to keep your outfit looking sharp. 

While washing your clothes regularly is a must, try not to tumble dry them. Tumble drying can damage the fabric so it’s always best to dry your clothes on a traditional airer – you’ll also save money on your energy bills! 

Final thoughts… 

Mastering style on a budget involves tailoring, investing in staples, accessorising and maintaining your appearance for lasting elegance. If you haven’t already, why not give it a go?
