There is a myth, propagated mostly by certain men's magazines, that being a stylish man requires tremendous effort. We must keep an eye to the fashion runways in Italy, to the ready-to-wear shows, to Fashion Week in New York in order to appear as if we care what we look like. Hogwash. The truth is there are dozens of quicker and easier ways to look better, more with it, more stylish – all with a minimum of effort. We tapped designers Billy Reid and John Varvatos, as well as stylist-to-the-stars Joey Tierney, to offer their input on these 25 simple, ready-to-impress tips for instantly upping your style quotient.

The trick is to feel comfortable, says Reid: "Sometimes you may want a shirt to be trim and other times you may want loose. Fabric that drapes might be better in fuller cuts. Fabrics with more structure might be best more fitted. You want to avoid sloppy bottoms on pant openings by making sure the width and length of the bottom looks right on your body. Trimmer pants are usually flattering on most body types. That's simple, right?"
