Sophistication is spoken in various languages. Some use their sports car, others use their home. However you choose to speak your personality, make it true to character. If you choose to communicate yours through your appearance, a clean, very crisp look conveys maturity and a strong sense of establishment. This look is easy to achieve – starch your shirt at the dry cleaner, and go with clear, bold colors, like white and red. And draw strong contrasts between garments. The result will be a catchy, but still clean appearance. The antonym of this look would be weathered, vintage and classic apparel, which is textured, and more earthy in tone.
TCGtip • Poly blended (polyester, poplin) shirts will look more crisp for longer and require less ironing, but are not as comfortable as wool and cotton.
Another benefit of wearing crisp garments, like a starched shirt is that the cuffs and collars retain their shape really well, so that you don’t ever have to worry about your getting collar pulled flat by the jacket’s lapel.
Using contrast in color and texture is ultimately going to create the most catchy outfit, while unified colors and textures are bound to make your look “cleaner.” Unification is easier on the eyes, while contrast creates tension.
