Rule 15: How to develop the style that gets you noticed

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II
The
word is ‘style’.  That means tasteful,
formal, civilized, sophisticated, elegant, cultured, refined and
discerning.  You are going to develop a
style that gets you noticed in all these things.  Dyeing your hair red and only ever wearing
charity shop cast offs may indeed be a style and one that does get you noticed,
but it’s not for the Rules Player.  Think Cary Grant rather than Boy
George
.  Think Lauren
Bacall
rather than Madonna.  All have style, all attracted attention.  But trust me, Cary or Lauren
is what you want.  Classic, timeless,
quality.  You have various options if you
want to adopt a style.

·                   
Choose
one thing and get known for it – always wear black, or double breasted, or Armani,
or have a classy handbag/briefcase collection. 
Develop a trademark dress style – and stick to it.
·                   
Only
ever buy the very best you can afford.
·                   
Never
wear anything tight – loose clothes talk of quality and elegance, tight clothes
of poverty and cheapness.
·                   
Less
is more – cut down on jewellery and buy/wear only the very best, the
finest.  If it’s not expensive then don’t
wear it.  You’ll find that if you only
limit yourself to very expensive items it helps you eliminate anything that
might be considered dubious or of questionable taste – spending a lot makes you
much more discriminating.

“THINK CARY
GRANT RATHER THAN BOY GEORGE.  THINK
LAUREN BACALL RATHER THAN MADONNA”.

·                   
If
you wear makeup then stick to what suits you, what makes you look good. Don’t
change your makeup with the seasons or with what’s in vogue – be known for your
look, be instantly recognizable, be stylish.
·                   
Always
dress up rather than down – formal is best, informal is worst.
·                   
Make
sure all accessories follow the same rules as your dress sense – stylish,
expensive, loose, recognizable, and tasteful. 
There’s not a lot of point in looking good and then dragging round a
battered old briefcase that’s seen better days – not unless, or course, that’s
your trademark in which case make sure the briefcase is very old and very
battered and very expensive.
