Dressing Your Age – 20 Somethings

Although style difficulties related to one’s age are often thought to be a middle aged problem navigating your twenties in style can be a problem as well.

Often it is related to attempt to leave the college days behind and look more mature but without really understanding the right way that a young man can do this.

Other men have a hard time letting go of the beer and pizza breakfast chic that they have been sporting for the four years or so. Here then are some tips from the best mend clothing store in Portland, Estes:

Experiment – Few men in their early twenties have evolved a personal style yet (or at least one that suite them) Experimentation at this stage of life is fine. Test the waters with a few fashion trends that stretch your personal boundaries a bit. Some will be a hit, some will flop miserably but it will help you develop your own sense of style, rather than one that some magazine says you should be following.

Lose the Labels – After you graduate from college leave the Abercrombie and Fitch, the Sean John and all the other trendy labels behind as much as possible. These days the only thing your clothing should be advertising is you and your own personal style.

Buy Clothes that Fit – It was OK in college if your clothes looked like they belonged to your older, much bigger brother. Now however it’s time to grow up. Whatever you buy in the clothing stores of Portland make sure it fits. Have it tailored if necessary. And by fits we mean the shoulder seams actually hit you at the shoulder, the torso is trim but not tight, and the rear doesn’t look like it’s ready to make a special delivery.
