Instant Clothing Hack #1 A Belt That Matches Your Trousers
This first instant clothing hack is particularly powerful for the shorter men out there.
Ever heard that stout men look best with a monochromatic look? This hack uses the same principles.
Forget about matching your leathers because we’re creating an optical illusion by matching your belt with your trousers.
Short men are seen as short mainly because their legs are shorter than other men. A leather belt that matches your shoes, normally in a shade of tan or dark brown contrasts with your trousers. This makes the human eye pause when someone looks you up and down.
Matching your belt to your trousers lets someone’s eye move up you uninterrupted, creating the illusion of longer legs.
Instant Clothing Hack #2 A V-neck Undershirt
Crew neck undershirts are very common, but they don’t do anything for you. They disrupt the flattering ‘V’ created when you leave the top two or three buttons undone on a collared shirt.
My recommendation? V-neck undershirts. They remain hidden when you go open-necked, showing that little bit of extra skin that helps draw eyes to the chest. It’s an easy fix to a smart-casual outfit.
A note of warning: Avoid deep-V’s unless they’re undershirts. No one needs to see your ‘man cleavage’.

Instant Clothing Hack #4 A Fitted Dress Shirt
Gentlemen, fit is king. The most expensive dress shirts will have you looking woefully disheveled if they are too big.
- You should be able to fit a finger under the closed collar – no more, no less.
- The tops of the sleeve should rest right at the edge of your shoulders.
- The sleeves should look smooth around your arm – not overly tight nor baggy. You’ll know it when you see it.
- Make sure the dress shirt has minimal-to-no billowing around the waist.

Instant Clothing Hack #5 Choose Clothes That Complement Or Contrast Your Skin Tone
Knowing how to use contrasting colors is an instant clothing hack that can be very powerful with the right skin tone. While you can seek out whichever colors suit your fancy, certain colors complement certain skin types. Choosing the right colors can help highlight your face.
Let’s go over the different contrast types:
- High-Contrast men (light skin/dark hair): Benefit from bolder colors such as deep navy or white worn with a contrasting jacket.
- Medium-Contrast men (medium skin/dark hair): Have the largest variety of choices, but are best-dressed with slightly more muted tones such as olive green.
- Low-Contrast (light skin/light hair): Muted colors and pastels suit these men well. Consider pink and baby blue.
- Low-Contrast (dark skin/dark hair): Black men should approach style with a medium to high contrast mindset. The darker your skin, the bolder the colors should be. Consider turquoise or purple.
Instant Clothing Hack #6 Fitted Jeans
Jeans are as common as bread yet most men wear the wrong sizes. To look your best in jeans, you need to know your body type and buy based on that.
How do you figure this out? Proportion is the name of the game. Ask yourself which men’s body shape do I have?
What if you have a dad bod? You want to go a little looser with a straight-leg or loose-fitting pair of jeans. I’m not talking super loose, but loose enough that your body looks well-balanced.
Instant Clothing Hack #7 Throw On A Leather Jacket
Sometimes a suit jacket or blazer is too formal. Reach for the leather jacket in these instances.
It’s a classic of men’s outerwear that is both casual and classy. It oozes masculine cool and instantly levels up any outfit.
Plus, the right style of jacket can work with collared shirts and T-shirts alike making this a versatile piece worth investing in.
Instant Clothing Hack #8 Don’t Forget Your Signature Scent
When it comes to instant clothing hacks, fragrances are the most powerful. Even a single spray as you go out the door can make a huge difference.
Your clothes might please the eye but appealing to a second sense adds so much extra value.
Instant Clothing Hack #9 Get A Fresh Cut From Your Barber
Every man should get a haircut about twice a month, but the critical factor here is to go with your regular barber.
You wouldn’t cheat on your date (right?) so don’t cheat on your barber either.
Why? He’s going to know what looks great on you and what doesn’t.
This instant hack is especially important if you’ve got a big event coming up. I can tell you from personal experience it’s not worth trying a high-risk haircut the day before people are taking your picture and posting it all over social media.
Instant Clothing Hack #10 Don’t Forget The Pomade
You probably already own some kind of men’s hair product, but how often do you use it? Same goes for the rest of your routine.
The truth is a little product, quick shave or beard trim is easily forgotten about in the morning. Any one of these can make all the difference to the impression you make though!
The sleek style of pomade not for you? Consider a paste or fiber to get a more laid look.
What about the bearded men out there? Beard oils and brushes are a must for keeping that mane looking fresh and clean. The oil isn’t actually for your beard at all, it’s for the skin beneath. As facial hair grows, it dries the skin around it. Beard oil ensures that this never happens. It also gives the hair itself a nice shine.
You can take it up a notch with beard balm. Think of it as a paste for your facial hair in order to keep its shape.
We went a little beyond clothing at some points, but these all have the same effect: making you look as attractive and stylish as possible. By using these instant clothing hacks, you’re guaranteed to take your style game to another level.
