“Fashion fades, style is eternal”. That is quoted from the Yves Saint Laurent, which means even though trends come and go but certain things will never be subjected to the ever-changing cycles of trends. In reality, it’s true. Some items will become so essential that any man can’t live without. Today, my job will be rounding up those items that every man should have in his wardrobe. Read on to know what I’ll be listing.
1. OXFORD SHIRTS
Nothing says elegance and sophistication than the Oxford shirt. Personally, I think every man should own this work of art. For it is everything you need to embrace the spirit of a modern dandy man. A classy gentleman in a white shirt, imagine that. With its crisp, white, slim design, it sure is a man staple. You are missing out a great deal if you don’t have this shirt in your closet. So, get one. Even multiples if you can.
2. OVERSIZED SHOULDER BLAZERS
Jackets for men? Absolutely. What suits you better than an oversized blazer? Trust me, this piece of clothing will never go out of style. Cut from lightweight fabrics, and left unlined to complement your body shape, these blazers add dimension and bring an air of cool comfort to your outfit. For they are the kind of jackets that you can throw on top of any look for a more high fashion vibe.
3. DENIM JACKETS
Whether it is summer or winter, a good old denim jacket is always a go-to item. It appeared in the beginning of the twentieth century, these jackets have had countless cultural associations. Quote from Mr. Gordon Richardson, director of Topman Design, “Whether it is frayed, or overdyed, acid wash, use the denim jacket to smarten up or dress down”. And he’s absolutely right. There’s no better and finer choice than denim jackets to make your look more interesting.
4. SELVEDGE JEANS
Get yourself a pair in dark blue because why not? There’s literally nothing that can go wrong with Selvedge jeans. They are made specifically for anyone who has a sophisticated sense of fashion that will never go out of style. A timeless beauty I will say. Their rustic and casual look will sure elevate your outfit to a whole new level. So, what are you waiting for?
5. DESERT BOOTS
Originally worn by British military troops, desert boots have worked their ways to become one of the most adaptable footwear options. Classy. Smart. Simple with a modern twist. Need I say more. Oh, that’s right, they go well with anything.
Feel free to pull off any look with a pair of desert boots. For a smart and casual look, style these boots with a pair of jeans and a button-down shirt. Or you can go out of your comfort zone by styling them with your work suits. Like I told you before, they work well with anything.
6. WHITE SNEAKERS
Of course, sneakers come in many colors, but to me, the most iconic one has to be white. Truly it is a staple in every man wardrobe. I mean how can I forget this piece of clothing? White sneakers are versatile, easy-to-wear and overall, they are a must-have item. And if that’s not enough for you to seal the deal, then I hope its comfortable feeling on your feet and visually stunning looking can change your mind.
7. BROWN LEATHER BELTS
I have to say that brown belts are the safest option for every man. For brown means casual but not boring and smart but not conventional. Also, brown is quite a neutral shade so, to be frank, it goes well with other shades of colors. So, go get yourself a brown belt now for it is exactly what you need in your wardrobe.
8. FEDORA HATS
One of the most recognized hats of this day, the Fedora hat for men. You barely have to put in any effort to style this hat, for this item alone is everything you need to pull your look together. And did I mention that Fedoras can go well with both casual and formal looks? Feel free to wear it with jeans or t-shirts for a casual, simple look. Or style it with a suit, perhaps, for a more formal looking.
Totes are the alternative to your regular backpack. To be honest, I love everything about this weekender bag for men and I think that every man should own a tote bag in his closet. They look smart, fancy and they embrace the look of modern dandy men. So, I don’t see why you can’t buy yourself a tote bag?
10. HIPSTER SQUARE GLASSES
The final puzzle piece to complete your outfit. An essential item that every man should have in his wardrobe, the hipster square glasses. For their bold looking will help you stand out of the crowd. And the fact that their square silhouettes are so unique that these frames will sure elevate your outfit. Especially choose oversized thick frames. Let’s make fashion statements by wearing these glasses outside.
Those are 10 pieces of items, which I personally think are essential for men wardrobe. But what are your opinions? Do you disagree or agree with my choices of clothing? Well, in the next few days I’ll be posting more posts on fashion advice, so be sure to keep checking them out. And like always, stay tuned my readers!
