There are few things worse than a cheap, badly made suit, and most people will be able to tell a budget cut from a hundred paces so the first thing to is invest in quality.

Now this doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank in order to get that perfect designer look, just think about how many formal occasions, weddings, meetings and work dos you’ll be attending and then decide how much you’re willing to spend to look good.

If you’re working to a tight budget, you could just invest in a well-cut jacket and some great fitting trousers and match them with your existing wardrobe.

One mistake that a lot of people make when choosing formal wear is going for an outfit that is totally different from the sort of clothes that they’d normally wear, making them feel uncomfortable and awkward at smart events.

With the wealth of designers, styles and cuts out there, there’s really no need to choose something you’re not happy in. If you normally wear skinny jeans and slim fitting tops, go for a skinny cut suit or if you’re still hanging on to that 70s look, find yourself a retro suit complete with built in flares or a wider leg.

It’s all in the details

Smartening up your style with a suit jacket, tie and trousers is easy but you can let the look down completely with old shoes and tatty accessories. Investing in quality footwear and stylish accessories will do wonders for your new smart look plus once you’ve got a pair of well-made shoes you can easily smarten up your everyday look by wearing them with your normal jeans and shirts.

Smartening up your style is easier than you think. All you need is a well-cut suit, some great accessories and a bit of confidence.
