    There are many ways but I'll just write one.

    Make sure there is no Colour Riot.  i.e colours should co-ordinate.

    Learning to dress well starts with knowing your body type.  You will fall into one of 5 categories:

    Apple (waist thicker than shoulders and hips)
    Pear (hips wider than shoulder, waist small)
    Straight (shoulders, waist and hips all about the same size)
    Inverted Triangle (broad shoulders, normal waist, small hips)
    Hourglass (hips and shoulders equal, waist small)

    Once you know your body type, you will know what areas to focus on, and what areas to draw attention away from.  The trick is to create balance, so if you are for example a pear, you will want to draw attention away from your hips and add balance to your upper body with maybe ruffled shirts, puff sleeves, detailing.  Light colors on top and slimming darker colors on the bottom.

    While all the above answers are great, I will add one thing.... The biggest mistake alot of us make (yes me too) is wearing clothing that is the wrong size.  Even if we wear the right style for our body type and are perfectly quordinated, the wrong size will make us look sloppy or like a sausage.  In many cases a taylor may be the best way to finnish the perfect look.

    Dressing well -
    For both men and women it's about knowing your body type, as we get older, our bodies change, however our mental image of ourselves does not.  The information below is for all body types. 

    Everyone should have the following pieces in their closet:
    - A blazer/sports jacket (non busy color/pattern)
    - Full suit (not from your wedding ;-)
    - A well fitted pair of slacks
    - A dress shirt that fits
    - The hosiery or socks to match
    - A nice sweater
    - A nice pair of jeans
    - 1 pair of clean comfortable and timeless dress shoes (that coordinate with the colors above)

    All of the items can be mixed and matched to meet whatever your wardrobe needs are. 

    Understanding dress codes:
    - Formal Dress - For men this means to wear a suit, for women, a cocktail dress (shorter lengths are ok, just not above the knee) or suit is appropriate
    - Black Tie - For men, a tuxedo is appropriate, for women, a gown is appropriate (full length gown is appropriate)
    - Business Casual - For men, a sports jacket and slacks or khakis, or a dress shirt and slacks, for women, blouse and skirt, or blouse/sweater and slacks/khakis/gouchos
    - Casual - For men and women, this means jeans, depending on the occasion, shirts without collars may be allowed, a sweater is always a safe bet. 

    Add punches of color to your wardrobe by accessorizing it, or adding fun shades for sweaters/shirts/scarves/belts into your closet arsenal.

    my tips for how to dress well are fairly simple....ask someone you trust for an honest opinion...and look in the mirror before you leave the house...if you can hear your mother telling you how bad you look, go back and get changed into something else!! seriously, your mum isn't going to tell you how great you look when you don't.

    To dress well doesn't only means your physical appearance. It include everything about you. The way you behave; that is responding to situations, and also how respectful are to both your mates, your seniors and also your juniors all this are component of how well you dress. The way you dress and behave will be the way people will address you.
    Dressing to be natural is the best way to dress. That is being who you are without trying to imitate anyone. Create your own style that will make people to respect you.
