In our everyday life, we are in constant competition. This competition is on various fronts. We have to compete with our colleagues at the office, with our coworkers, and with the competitors who have goals similar to ours. But these competitions are not the true competitions as they just get into our heads due to our stupid nature. The real competition a person has is with his own self. This is an unending competition that does not end with any milestone that we achieve or any promotion that we win. It is a race with our past. And it is not a material competition, it is a competition for our present version with our yesterday’s version.
In this competition, there are certain small things that can help us improve. Our dressing is one of the important things that shape our personality. By this, I don’t mean that having expensive suits and shoes will make improve our personality. Rather how we dress in the best way that we can easily manage. Through my experience, I have learned that certain accessories can add a lot of style to our dressing and also reinforce us with a lot of confidence. Following are these accessories;
It is my most favorite accessory. The good thing about necktie is that it is not an uncommon thing. Everyone has worn it but a few chose to make it a part of their usual attire. But believe me, it makes a lot of difference in your appearance. You can simply judge that by wearing a dress shirt and trousers and watching yourself in a mirror. Then add a necktie and watch yourself again. You will feel the difference.
Another great thing about necktie is that it improves our confidence a lot. Like in our colleges and universities, students are not used to wearing it. But if you start wearing it sometimes, it will make you look better and you will be surprised how good you will feel. Firstly it will get you compliments from other people. Although some will criticize and taunt you but don’t take that seriously. It will also leave a good impression on your teachers. And it will bring similar results for the professional workers as well. It brings confidence because it completes our dress. When talking to your boss or your teacher and knowing that nothing is missing will make you feel great.
Another good thing is that it brings variety in your wardrobe. Consider that you have a shirt and a pair of trousers and you wear them to work one day. The next day you add a tie and you have a different dress. In this way, it can expand your wardrobe with a little money.
This is one of the accessories that I have worn a very few times but whenever I wear any of them, I feel great. It can be any cap or hat that suits your get up. When you wear a hat, it makes you look different from other people around you. Mostly these are worn outdoors and not indoors but even outdoors, they serve 2 purposes. They make you look better. And secondly, they save you from sunlight, heat, cold (in winter), dust, and other such factors.
It is a common accessory that many people use and it is also a great one. It is one of the things that attract people’s attention. For example, if someone is looking at your clothes, he/she will most certainly also look at your wrists and a good-looking watch there will make a good impression. Also, it serves an important task of showing time. We don’t need to bring our cell phone out of our pocket every time we need to know the time. We only have to look at our wrists. It saves time, looks good, and feels good.
It is not an accessory related to our clothing but it is something very good to have. I am talking about having a pen in a pocket. It may be a ballpoint pen, a fountain pen, or any other type appropriate for you. I like fountain pens more but everyone has his/her own choice. It has many advantages. Whenever we need to write something down, we don’t have to look around and ask other people for a pen. We have it right in our pocket. If someone else around us needs a pen, we can let them use ours and that will leave a good impression. Moreover, a decent looking pen in our hands or the front pocket of our shirt looks good. In these ways, a decent looking pen even inexpensive can help us improve ourselves.
These are the four accessories that I want you to try. Hopefully, you will like them.
