The new year is also a great time to take a second look at your wardrobe.
Here are eight style resolutions every guy should make — and keep — in 2016.
Figure out a skincare regimen.
Everyone from your dermatologist to your therapist has told you you need to start moisturizing. Make 2016 the year you finally learn how to take care of your body's largest organ.
Finally find a tailor.
Sure, your clothes probably fit you well enough. But, let's be honest, the extra bunch of fold of fabric in your suit has always been bothering you, and those sleeves that are just a little too long could look better. Resolve to find a tailor to fix these issues in 2016, and always be looking your best and, most importantly, your most confident.
Figure out how to get the haircut you really want.
Every guy knows how to get a haircut. Not every guy knows how to get the haircut they really want. There's a specific jargon that you can use when talking to your barber that will make it easier for him to know exactly how you would like your hair to be cut. This year, consult a guide to have your hair looking exactly how you want, not just good enough.
Take stock of your wardrobe and fill any holes you may have.
The new year is the perfect time to take stock of what items you already own as well as the essentials you still need to pick up. Make sure you have at least these 18 essential items, and set goals for any pieces you'd like to acquire in the coming year.
Stop wearing things you don't like.
We all do it. Whether it's a vest that's become synonymous with your job or a piece that has suddenly become trendy, we all sometimes wear items of clothing we don't really like that much. Resolve to do less of that this year, and you'll learn to develop your own personal style away from the crowded trends.
Resolve to learn the lingo.
Learning how to improve your style and dress better can be intimidating. And it's intimidating for one big reason: the vocabulary. Once you learn the proper fashion jargon, you'll be well on your way to dressing better.
Finally learn how to use hair product.
You've heard a lot about hair product, but you're still not sure what it is or what it does. This year, you're going to figure out how to use the best hair product to complement your new hair cut and type.
Get rid of things you don't wear.
Go through your closet and identify items you haven't worn in a year or longer. Chances are, you won't wear it this year either. Pare down your closet, and you'll be able to better envision the outfits you'll be able to make with the remaining pieces.
