The Man's Guide To Looking Fresh On A BudgetClothes

Clothes make the man, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to look good. Keep your ear to the ground and grab gear when it’s reduced and on sale. With a little bit of planning you can reinvigorate your wardrobe without having to worry about taking out a new mortgage. Check out op-shops for quirky pieces that can add edge to your style. Little touches make a huge difference for the whole.

Hair Product

Maybe it’s time you considered reinventing your ‘do. Dedicating a little bit of time in your morning to personal grooming can make a huge difference in terms of your overall look, and with a range of online outlets offering great products to help you look great without spending a fortune. Hair is one of the first things people notice, so make sure you’re looking fresh from the top down with premium hair product.

Cologne

The way you smell is just as important as anything else, and personal hygiene is one of those things that’s never really going to go out of style. Again, go online and check out the wide range of men’s grooming products available. The right cologne doesn’t have to be a big brand, but a subtle distinctive smell can really add to your overall perception of style as a person and add a personal touch to your own look. Take note: Spray on deodorant should never be used as cologne – ever. Not only is it offensive to the nostrils of everyone in a two-meter radius, it tells the world, I never graduated from high school.

Accessories

Accessorising your outfit probably doesn’t feel like the most macho thing to be doing, but again this is one of those little touches in men’s grooming that can make a huge difference in terms of the whole. A man bag, pair of sunglasses, scarf, even the colour of your shoelaces can make a huge difference to your own personal style, so take advantage of these subtle little touches and tailor your look accordingly.
