Gone are the good old days when men’s fashion was a lot more simple. A few pairs of good shirts and trousers was all you needed for an informal escapade. The expansion in men’s fashion over the past few years has brought in a lot of benefits. Men are finally learning to dress their age and body type, and have developed a good understanding of what works best for them. In this blog, we are listing down a few basic wardrobe essentials for men that will help you deal with the confusion caused by the amount of choice available.
It’s time to go back to the basics. Sticking to what you know best and what you are most comfortable in is key. It’s worth investing time and money into a few of these essential, timeless pieces.
Amongst the many types of jackets available for men, the one type that never goes out of fashion is the Denim Jacket. Whether you pair it with a plain white tshirt, or a plaid shirt, a denim jacket always manages to add a certain masculinity to your outfit. As we have been reiterating, fit is king. A denim jacket that’s too loose or tight can end up looking shabby. Pair it with dark denims and you are all set.
A white shirt
There’s barely anything that won’t go well with a white shirt!
White casual shirts are the most versatile piece of clothing that a man can own. A white shirt speaks volumes about your personality and can make you look elegant and classy at the same time. For a formal look, you can never go wrong with a white shirt and a blazer. Wear it under a crew neck sweater or with chinos and you are ready for a relaxed weekend.
Denim jeans are a staple for men’s casual wear. Finding the perfect pair of basic denim jeans is not an easy thing for men. What we know by now is that fit is the key to a good outfit. A good pair of denim jeans should be slim fitting, but not too tight. It should be stiff, but at the same time, you should be able to do a squat (bend your legs) in it. They should preferably be a darker shade of blue as this colour is a classic and pairs well with almost everything.
Just like basic jeans, a pair of Chinos need to be well-fitted and comfortable. The original Chino is the khaki (light brown) colour, but it is now available in a multitude of shades. Worn in a more casual environment, Chinos must have a relaxed, perfect fit. Chinos can be paired with different kinds of shirts and tshirts. Chino pants can be accessorized with a statement belt and a linen shirt for the ultimate weekend look.
Every man needs a pair of dress shoes. Whether it’s for an official meeting or a formal occasion, there will be many instances where these shoes will be required. A man’s wardrobe is incomplete without the dress shoes so make sure you pick yours soon, if you haven’t already. Some of the most common dress shoes are Oxfords, Derby, Loafers, Cap Toes, Monk Straps, Dress Boots and Wingtips. Thus, giving men a wide range to choose from
