How to have better clothing sense/look youthful

I do have some good clothes but as a guy I've never felt young or comfortable in my own skin which has massively affected my self esteem. I look around me and girls and boys my age at 21/22 seem to all be trendy or fashionable when I think I look absolutely awful, old and ugly in everything I wear. Maybe my lack of friendships growing up made me make my own poor choices in my own world but university was a big wake up call in needing to sort myself out. I just feel very different and behind people, so much so that I can't connect with most youthful things and feel that my personality has added to the sense of FOMO I get these days.

I think you need inspiration on latest trends. Do you have insta? If you want to fit in (seems like you do), just go ahead and buy what everyone wears then.

I would not recommend wearing clothes simply because there trendy, your style should reflect you and what you like, that is what will make you the most confident.

I don't particularly like super trendy clothing, I pretty much just wear nice trainers, joggers and a T-shirt

If you do want to wear trendy stuff though, go for it, shops like JD and all that are filled with all the crap most teens wear these days

Yeah I definitely do. I just deleted it so no not atm.

I'll have to look around what others are wearing, but usually my go to clothes are black slim jeans and t shirts

Yeah, just have a look on insta. Go from there, or you can even check JD, Nike, etc like someone has suggested.

Will have to, but also need to find a style that suits me. Don't want to completely copy everyone else 100%

Hey! Probably not what you want to hear, but I find that in most cases you know what your next step needs to be in terms of getting your self-esteem up It might be a case of having the willingness and the grit to make the most challenging first step towards change. I would also say that thinking low of yourself might be something to work on - there's nothing worse than not believing in yourself and talking about and to yourself in cheerful and hopeful ways might help you achieve the grit I talk about. I wish you the best :rolleyes: !

Again I’m trying to find my own style and what really fits best so my own taste is gonna take a while to develop. I used to wear baggy trousers, formal shirts, Velcrow shoes and joggers but past year or so switched to skinny jeans and tighter fitting t shirts as people were telling me to start switching things up a bit.

JD I get sportswear from but I’ll check them out. Not a teen haha so will have to nitpick a little bit harder

Yeah I’m still working on getting that up and just improving my mental health in general, that’s why I’ve taken a break from social media to clear my mind of things. Thanks though 🙂
