Gone are the days when fashion trends were only applicable to women. By no means, if you own all the items on this list you will have a complete wardrobe but with these basic items in there you can build around to achieve the look that you have been wanting.
1. Crisp white Oxford shirt
Crisp white shirt always gets passed over more colorful designs for men. You can pair it with chinos or denim and a statement belt for a casual purpose; it can also be teamed up with a suit in case you desire a formal look. This will prove to be the most versatile item in your wardrobe.
2. Dark blue denim
Dark blue denim in comparison to any other hue can be paired with a blazer, suit jacket can be dressed down with a pullover or checked shirt for an elegant look.Also, darker jeans are far more compliant than any other wash.
3. A pair of white leather sneakers
Basic white Adidas or Nike sneakers will complement your look with jeans, joggers, and even shorts. White sneakers are the best alternative for all your casual occasions.
You can wear joggers almost anywhere where there is no dress code and those are the most comfortable pants you’ll ever come across. You can wear them while traveling, going to the gym, or on a casual evening to chill with your friends. Sure they may be a little expensive but it is definitely worth it.
5. Crew neck T-shirts
You do wear t-shirts in layers or on their own but what you fail to realize is that they can get tatty and worn-looking very quickly. This impairs your overall style. To fix this you should have a few crew neck T-shirts in your closet which you can switch often preferably body hugging with no logos. You must go for basics-white, gray and blue.
Well-fitting chinos are the semi-casual alternative that works with nearly anything in your wardrobe from polo t-shirt, collared t-shirt to plain t-shirt. A range of colors are available but solid or stone color like khaki or gray is preferable. These colors will allow you to be more expressive when it comes to shirts trainers etc.
7. A blue blazer
Your blue blazer can turn out to be the best appendage in your closet. It lends itself to different styles and can be worn with many things to make you look preppy, modern and stylish. You can wear it on casual events, gallery openings or evening get-togethers.
8. Slim Dress Shoes
Well, it’s true that girls spot gentlemen by looking at their shoes. So to up your game, you must own a pair of these. You can pair your brown/ black dress shoes with slim chinos, formal pants or suit to achieve a refined look.
Loafers are the most comfortable shoes that you can wear to add value to your outfit. They are available both for formal and casual purposes. You can wear them with jeans as well as formals depending upon the type you own.
10. A Handsome Watch
You must have a watch that complements your outfit to complete your look. Pick a watch that is sleek and stylish. Avoid gold unless you are above 50. Choose one that goes best with both formal and casual outfits.
