There's nothing like suiting up to feel professional and ready for class. When dressed up, you automatically feel good because you look awesome and you're ready to go for the day. This Fashionisto looks well-kept in his slick blazer with a pop of colour from his shirt and tie peeking through. His thick framed glasses and black patent leather shoes complete the look.
Dressing up for a day doesn't mean to you need to look like you're the CEO of an office, it just means wearing something a little more dressy than just a pair of jeans and sneakers. A good place to start is shoes. Pick up a pair of Cole Haan wingtips or Steve Madden boots. Shoes automatically make your outfit look more professional and put together. Next up would be a good jacket. For Montreal, this is important because it's what you'll be living in for a good three months of the winter! Pea coats are always a great option because they're both classy but can be dressed down to be more casual. Many stores sell nice peacoats in their winter collections, like this one from Banana Republic. Now that you've got the look on the outside, you can work with what you're wearing underneath. You can look classy with a nice shirt and tie, and a pair of pants that aren't jeans!
So next time you get ready in the morning, why don't you opt for something a little more classy. You'll look good among your peers in their sweatpants and sneakers by looking professional and ready for class. Also, it'll be a great habit to get in to before summer rolls around and you'll have to suit up day after day!
Hint: If you're new to this look, take it slowly by adding one piece of dressier clothing into your wardrobe at a time.
