One thing is for sure; We all like to look good at least to impress a date, look presentable for a job interview, attend a wedding or funeral, the list is endless. But for crying out loud, a good look is not cheap or so do many think. Take a minute and look closely at the red carpet on an Oscar award show. One thing that stands out especially for men is that they are dressed in black suits. But wait until they introduce who they are wearing; Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Fendi, Burberry, and other big names in the market. In my eye, they all look the same but it is the name brands that make the whole difference. Now there’s no need to empty your bank account trying to buy the exact suit that Tyrese was wearing on the Soul Train awards, because the likelihood of you affording it are slim lest you find an eviction note on your door.
Hey, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying you should not wear brand names. I do. But I will not jeopardize my bank account because I want to look like a star unless if you were a member of young money cash money. Prioritizing is the word. Set your priorities right. I could throw on a nice, cheap black tuxedo and black pants and claim to be wearing a Fendi suit and still look just as good. I know a few secrets that I will share with you here in a short while. I would like to bring to your attention that you could still look good dressing cheap. You will need a few things to begin with. First of all you must have good taste or what I like to call “the eye”. You have to be able to see a good look and recognize that it is good. Last but not least, you have to know how to match colors with your skin. Know your skin cmplexion and tone and the colors that match well with it. Avoid mixing too many colors altogether. You realize that when you are wearing more than four colors that you are already wearing too many colors. Do not overdress. That is another No No. Finally you need to know your body size and wear at least size smaller. If you have noticed, a lot of people nowadays like to wear fitting clothings. But, do not wear too tight or do not wear too baggy. The goal is to look nice and presentable.
Remember when I said I would let you in in a few secrets? Here we go; Goodwill. Not too fast, I know what you are thinking. “Are you out of your mind telling me to shop at Goodwill?”. Did you know that people from affluent homes pull over at the drive through everyday to drop off what they don’t wear or need anymore? Yes for sure. And as they say, the early bird catches the worm, you need to get out there as early as you can and get yourself something nice for cheap. Since we are talking about dressing nice for cheap, I am going to give you a few websites that you can go to and find really nice clothings for really cheap: http://www.drjays.com, http://www.overstock.com, http://www.amazon.com, and http://www.hiphopbling.com.
