Time sure does fly, we've all know people who seem to get stuck in their generation and can't seem to escape, you know the stuck in the 70's, or stuck in the 80's type of look and they just can't escape. Don't be that guy, keep up with the times, adapt!
The other day, I was looking for a shirt in my closet and came across some scary pieces of outdated clothing. My first thought .... maybe I'll wear this sweater someday, I stopped myself right there because this the start of getting stuck in your generation and wearing outdated clothing. I immediately asked myself if would go out and buy this piece of clothing right now in this moment, my answer was obvious 'NO' which meant I had to throw all these old pieces in a bag and drop them off at my local used clothing depot.
Ok, you might say getting rid of my old clothes won't keep me up with the times for style but it's a step in the right direction and it sure will help to make sure you don't go back in time with your fashion.
Now that your old clothes are gone; how do I stay stylish as I grow older, here are some tips to growing old and staying stylish:
Pick up a Magazine or two; magazines like Esquire, Men’s Health, GQ always go out of their way to keep their reader informed on what’s hot and what’s not in fashion. These magazines are great resources to find out men’s fashion, style news, trends and menswear designers. You don’t have to read these magazines every month but pick up let’s say one a year, this will keep you sharp enough with your style and honestly, they're good bathroom reading materials.
watch shows like the Oscars and Billboard awards, take a look around and observe. Fashion-forward movie and rock stars help set the trends, keep an eye on the clothing, the accessories these famous people are wearing. You don't have to go as extreme as their wardrobe but just head in that direction
