Stage 1 is all about getting clear about who you are, what you want to communicate, where you are now, and becoming aware of the changes you need to make to get to where you want to be.
Your image is fully loaded with messages.A message that not only translates into your attractiveness, but who you are inside.
It’s important that as a foundation to your best style, you need to know who you are, your core purpose, and the type of people you want to attract or build stronger relationships with.
Stage 1 is a very important foundation to building your unique sense of style.Skipping this first stage is the root cause of many common image mistakes such as being incongruent with your personality, looking try-hard, or merely following trends that come and go.
At first, it’s very hard to avoid incongruity.
Questions to answer

What do you represent?What principles do you live by?ex: Being adventurous, being open-minded, I value excellence over mediocrity, I value taking smart risks, I value hard work, etc.
What is your vision and purpose for your style?The answer should be emotionally charged and you should connect with it.ex: Communicating my best self through my image and as a result, being highly charismatic. To have a commanding presence, to display my qualities before I even speak, to define my look, feel great, and enjoy the process, and so on.

On the surface, men’s fashion seems to be full of rules, contradictions, and vague complexities.
But actually, it’s more about a personal expression than following a set of rules set out by some style expert.
The majority of style advice out there is about what you can fix on the outside.You can read tips on how to shop for a suit, or what type of shoes you should wear to the office, but within the larger goal of achieving your ultimate sense of style, isolated bits of advice become pretty useless.
The 4 Stages Model
Stage 1: Knowing Yourself
A highly attractive style only comes from having clarity in who you are.Learning style is like learning a language, and in stage 1 you are building the ideas to express, in the subsequent stages, to congruently and authentically communicate your identity through your image.
Stage 2: Modeling
In this stage you are beginning to practice speaking the language of style, through imitation.As you get deeper into this stage, you’ll begin to see patterns, as well as begin to expand your “style vocabulary.”
Stage 3: Building Proficiency
Once you can imitate other complete looks with ease, you’re ready to work on your proficiency.As you have a clear understanding of why the looks you copied in the modeling stage “worked,” you’ll begin to develop your own unique sense of style.
Stage 4: Mastery
This is the stage of style fluency.You understand how to convey any message, down to the smallest of details.You are also able to make statements by “breaking the rules”.
