While we are trying out new trends for men, when it comes to style, we believe there are a few timeless pieces of clothing that every man should have in his closet. The following items are essential because they are not too flashy and are appropriate for all ages and sizes.
1. An oxford button down shirt :
The oxford button down shirt is the most versatile piece of clothing there! You can always count on this classic for a dapper look. Pair it with slim fit chinos for a casual look and pair it with a suit for a formal look, it is just perfect for any event! Make sure to keep a few shirts of different colours in your wardrobe and stick to natural fibers for breathability in the summer season.
2. Plain T-shirts :
Basic T-shirts are unproblematic and easy to wear. T-shirts with good solid colours can change your whole look. You should have a good collection of plain T-shirts in your wardrobe as they will be a good foundation for creating more elaborate outfits. Make sure your T-shirts are not over worn or washed out.
3. Slim-fit Chinos :
Chinos are trousers that are made with cotton twill fabric. If denim is not your cup of tea, go for a pair of chinos! They are a great alternative to jeans. They look great with a polo or a button down shirt. They are perfect for casual or business events and can be dressed up or down. Avoid sitting on grass in chinos as they are prone to staining easily.
4. Tailored Suit :
The most important thing when it comes to clothes is how they fit you. You are better off wearing a cheap well fitting tailored suit rather than wearing an expensive off-the-rack ill fitting tuxedo. Hire a good tailor and get yourself a custom tailored suit. Navy blue, grey and black are classic colours for suits.
5. Jeans :
Nothing looks better than a pair of well fitted jeans! Jeans are super versatile; you can dress them up or down and wear them for any casual event. Make sure to try on a few pairs and check out different styles. Indigo or black jeans almost go with every look. Denim will never go out of style, so go ahead splurge on a great pair of jeans.
6. Sneakers :
Sneakers should definitely have a place in your wardrobe! They may be a hot trend right now but we definitely consider them a classic. They go well with almost all casual outfits! A pair of good quality white sneakers will elevate your outfit to another level. Pair them with chinos or denims and strap a duffle bag over your shoulder and there you’re set to rock like a star.
