I'm a heavyset, geeky guy with no sense of fashion or style. Can you help me change my look?
I'm about to graduate college and be thrust out into the real world. I'd like to change my appearance a bit (or more than) to look a) more professional, b) more attractive, and c) less clueless.
I'm already aware that I should try and lose some weight. I'm gonna work on that. What I would like to know is twofold:
1) What should I do w/r/t clothing? Right now, my usual wardrobe is a pair of jeans (black or blue), an untucked button-down shirt (often black), or a t-shirt (often black). Recently, I got a nice charcoal gray blazer, which looks wonderful. Aside from more colors—and my preference goes towards dark colors, I don't plan to change that—, what else should I be considering?
2) What should I do with my hair? Currently, I wear it long and in a ponytail. I have a very round face, and very, VERY, fair eyebrows. Short hair, such as buzz-cuts or the like, tend to make me look like an overgrown child. Also, I have a whole fuckload of cowlicks, and I don't want to spend an hour preening my hair to get it together each day. I'm absolutely lost about what to do with my hair to make it look sane. Any suggestions would be appriciated.
Here is a photo of myself for reference.
I don't have a full beard anymore, but everything else is pretty accurate.
