Styles go and come, but what is a man without a plain white shirt, a tie, or a chino trouser? Come in here guys and look up these must haves. They should be on your next shopping list.
Light Blue Shirt
An essential workaday item, this. Wear with a beige, grey or navy suit, a tie in a darker shade of blue and wait patiently for your promotion.
Plain White T-Shirt
Wear it with a seasonal bomber jacket, leather jacket, a blazer or chinos and you will look totally elegant, timeless, cool and laid-back – all at the same time! A plain white t-shirt MUST be a part of your wardrobe upgrade.
What’s a stylish man without a stylish blazer? You never go wrong by adding a blazer to your wardrobe – black, blue, velvet, burnt orange, cream – and yes, it can be worn time after time.
Plain White Shirt
There’s very little that won’t go with a button-down shirt. Worn with a suit for a more casual look, under a crew neck jumper at the weekend or teamed with a pair of slim chinos and a statement belt, this is the most versatile item in your wardrobe. Opt for a shirt cut from thick, soft cotton.
A tie is also a nice accessory to pull off, when it comes to upgrading your style game. You can go for a natural tie in navy, grey or black or experiment with different colours, textures, dots or stripes. Worn formally with a suit or dressed down with a shirt and jeans, it’s a must have.
A card holder is a must-have and you will know that your most important cards are all in one place. Look for one in black or brown leather that can hold a few cards and a couple of notes.
Ok, every man should possess a cotton mix crew neck in an adaptable shade of navy. It can be worn with almost everything and will act as a layer in winter and a feature piece in anytime, any season. Faultless.
Navy Chino Trousers
A good alternative to jeans and great if you don’t want to wear suit trousers, slim navy chinos are ideal for work or play. Wear with a shirt, shirt and jacket, t-shirt, t-shirt and bomber – the options are endless.
If you wear a suit to work (and even if you don’t) you should always own more than one. A petrol blue, single-breasted option is a great place to start.
The denim jacket, it’s easier to wear than you think, worn under an unlined navy blazer, worn over a loopback sweatshirt or simple tee, or even worn with a pair of jeans in a different hue, the look you should go for is casual, but in control.
These speak for themselves. Opt for white and wear yours in a few times. The beauty of brilliant white trainers is that they will anchor almost every pre-made look in your wardrobe – just ensure they remain brilliant white.
A good pair of jeans should be slim, but not too tight, stiff but not so stiff that you can’t bend your legs and they should also be blue, naturally. A pair of classic dark denim tick all those boxes and then some.
The frames that suit every face, a pair of classic black Wayfarers should be the foundation of your sunglasses collection (what do you mean you don’t have one?), helping you stay sharp and squint-free whatever the season.
Every man needs a pair of chic black lace-ups. They’re simple enough to be worn with a suit, while the elegant shape means that they can just as easily be worn with a tux. Wear with jeans at your peril.
Leather Band Watches
This dressier casual watch will never go out of style no matter what. It pairs just as well with a suit as it does with a T-shirt and a pair of jeans.
