I’ll let you in on a secret, it’s possible but it requires some careful planning.

This means choosing items that you can easily dress up or down.

Taking this approach also means that you can run out the door, look great at the office, and still fit in while you’re grabbing happy hour drinks after work without having to change.

Sound alright to you?

Assuming you said ‘yes,’ here’s what it takes…

Over the years I’ve come to learn that there’s a number of versatile wardrobe items every person should own. These have all stood the test of time so you can trust that they’ll always be stylish.

One example that comes to mind is crewneck sweaters. There’s a number of reasons why it’s become a staple piece in every stylish person’s wardrobe. Let’s dive into my top 3…

It’s A Reliable Casual Piece

The crewneck sweater naturally fits into your casual wardrobe.

It’s always a safe bet when you’re running errands in the evenings or grabbing coffee with your main squeeze on the weekends.

With that said, this is both a blessing and a curse.

It’s a blessing since you can easily wear it casually without giving it a second thought.

It’s a curse because most people overlook its ability to be dressed up.

A crewneck sweater is always a safe bet to have in your wardrobe no matter how you look at it.

Here’s Why Crewnecks Are Great For Dressing Up

This may come as a surprise to you but it is possible to dress up a crewneck sweater.

One of the simplest ways of achieving this is by wearing a button-up shirt underneath. Just make sure that your shirt collar can be seen otherwise this defeats the purpose.

You may also want to add a tie to your outfit if you’re looking to elevate this look even further.

Keep in mind that the type of shoes you wear will also change the nature of your style.

Dress shoes will always give it a more formal feel while sneakers can tone it down, creating more of a smart-casual look.

At the end of the day, it depends on how you’d like to be perceived.

Last Thoughts

Consider dressing in a way that’s timeless yet versatile. This way you’ll never have to think about what to wear ever again and you can trust that your style will always be relevant.

Your life will be much easier once you apply this approach to building your wardrobe.

The inspiration to start my image consulting business came from growing tired of feeling overlooked and forgettable. Developing a unique sense of style has made a positive impact in my life and I’m grateful to be able to share my teachings with men who are ready for a change.

The main thing that comes to mind when it comes to impact in the community is being able to work alongside local designers and event organizers.

This is mainly achieved by collaborating on content together or supporting them at various shows or pop-up shops that they host throughout the year. It’s a great way to connect with like-minded individuals.

The beautiful thing about Calgary is that everyone is so open to connecting and helping one another grow.
