9. Embrace simple footwear
Speaking of kicks, you don't even have to wear sneakers 24/7. Learn to switch up your game with casual footwear like thick-soled plaintoe oxfords, Wallabees, or chukkas. Having a pair of brogued wingtips or double monks is nice too, but the idea is to be able to wear them casually, not having to fully dress up all the time.
