Sprucing up your look without your wife noticing is one of the hardest parts of dating as a married man. You want to look great but you don’t want your wife to be suspicious. The best thing to do is to focus on some relatively minor areas of your look and improve those. Your wife isn’t looking super closely, so she’s not going to notice these changes. But a single woman on the prowl is going to pick up on the signals you’re putting out.
Get Some New Shoes
Shoes have been shown time and time again to be a huge thing that women notice about men. If you have scruffy, worn out shoes then you need to get rid of them right away. Throw them in the trash and tell your wife they were worn out. Then go by some sexy leather shoes in a current style and actually take good care of them. Wipe the mud off. Keep them polished. Take good care of these shoes and when a woman notices you she’s not going to be repelled by peeling soles, mud-caked sides, or scuffed leather.
If you have to wear an athletic shoe much of the day, then you need to stick to the replace every six months rule. If your wife complains about you dropping cash on fashionable and practical footwear, tell her that you’re worried about your arches. It’s important not to let your shoes get too worn out. Like the leather shoes above, make sure that you keep your shoes as clean and as nice as possible.
Get a Real Suit Fitting
Even if you’re not a suit kind of guy, you should get a real suit fitting. That will tell you your measurements as taken by a professional. Fitted clothing looks better on everybody. If you’re a big guy, don’t hide yourself in loose clothes that don’t show off your shape; you’ll just look bigger. If you’re a scrawny guy, trying to find a cut of clothes that makes you look fit and not just thin. Your wife will notice a gym membership. What she won’t notice is a couple of trouser alterations that will make you look like you got that gym membership.
Update Your Color Schemes
Everyone has to buy new shirts and ties eventually. When you do, make sure that you’re getting a color that’s popular now. Looking like you keep up with fashion trends is easier than ever. Don’t be afraid to add some color, and branch out from whatever you have already. You can cycle through your wardrobe and get rid of the oldest shirt or tie every couple weeks. Pretty soon you’ll have a wardrobe full of modern, attractive colors that your wife barely even registers. When clothes come in one item at a time as opposed to all at once, she won’t notice the subtle change over to fashion and lady friendly choices.
If you have a fashionable wife then this change should be easier for you. Just say that you want to join in the trends, and she’ll appreciate you taking an interest. If she’s not, then confidence is the key; act like you’re not up to anything, and she won’t suspect you.
