Have you got a special event coming up? It could be an anniversary, a family wedding or even something like an important job interview. And when there’s a special occasion on the horizon, it’s natural that we want to look our best. Even if you’re a simple kind of guy when it comes to your grooming habits, there are things you can do so that you look sharp and feel confident. And will mean that you won’t cringe looking back at photos of the event.
Hit The Gym
A few weeks before the event, you could consider hitting the gym. We all know how we should be exercising more, but it’s easy to let things slip when you’re busy and short on time. But making the time for yourself again a few times a week will help you to tone up, and make whatever you decide to wear for your event fit so much better.
Get a Haircut
It could be a general tidy up, or you could go for a complete change. Either way, once your hair is looking good, you’ll look and feel so much better. You could have the barber style your beard or give you a cut throat shave depending on how you wear your facial hair too. A bit of general grooming can also go a long way. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, just trim back any nose or ear hair and if you have a monobrow– give the strays in the middle a bit of a tweeze!
Pick an Outfit
If you’re preparing for a special occasion that requires a suit and you’re wearing one that you already own, be sure to try it on before the day arrives. Especially if you haven’t worn it for a while. If you’ve lost or gained any weight it might not look right on you anymore, and the last thing you need is to be rushing around in the morning. For a more casual affair, choose clothes that suit your shape and you feel good in. Don’t overlook footwear too, even if you’re wearing casual clothes your footwear should be clean and in good condition. Smart should be clean, polished and free of any scuffs or marks.
Choose a Cologne
To finish everything off, choose a good cologne. If you’ve been wearing the same scent for years, you could treat yourself to something new. Research different brands and try out some testers to find the best men’s cologne for you. Again this is something that will give you confidence and make you feel fresh.
Follow these simple tips and you’ll be sure to look your best, and more importantly feel good too. It doesn’t have to be difficult, the small things all add up and even if you’re not massively fussed about how you look when it comes to special occasions it’s worth putting in the effort
