Are you looking to expand your wardrobe? Or maybe you’re looking for a gift for the fashion-forward man in your life?
While it is nice to purchase trend pieces every now and then, certain classic items will stand the test of time in any man’s wardrobe and can either complement or be the base of any outfit.
Here are just a few things that every man should have in their wardrobe:
A luxury watch
A luxury watch is a must-have as it is both practical and stylish. Being practical means that it can be worn with any outfit, regardless of the occasion, ideal for getting your cost per wear. To make sure you can wear it with everything, opt for a metal colour that matches your other accessories such as jewellery or belt buckles.
Going for a Swiss-made quality watch is a great way to elevate your outfit subtly by providing additional texture and interest to your look. When it comes to performance and longevity, you can’t go wrong with a classic TUDOR watch.
It goes without saying that everyone should own a decent pair of jeans. Perfect for wearing day to day, whilst also fitting well into more special occasions, they are one of the most adaptable items of clothing.
With so many options to choose from, it may take some time to find your perfect pair of jeans, but it is well worth the search. Do some research online into different styles and consider going shopping to try on different pairs in person.
Choose a wash and fit that will align best with how you intend to wear the jeans. A lighter wash and a loose fit is more casual, whereas darker denim and a slimmer fit may be easier to transition for more formal wear.
A perfect partner to a good pair of jeans, you should also own a versatile belt. Similar to a watch, a belt provides both the practical element of allowing your trousers to fit better, whilst also adding style.
As with a watch, you should make sure the material of your belt matches the rest of your wardrobe to ensure your accessories can be worn seamlessly together.
Look for something that can be worn to both formal and informal occasions. If you are unsure, opting for a classic black leather with a silver or gold buckle is a good place to start. If you aren’t keen on shiny metal, you could look for a belt with a matte black buckle instead.
A white t-shirt doesn’t require much explaining. Potentially the most versatile piece of clothing you can own, they work well paired with both jeans or equally with dress trousers and a blazer.
To make sure you aren’t constantly replacing your white t-shirt, make sure to invest in a high-quality product and ensure that you are washing and storing it properly to extend its life.
Once you find a fit and style that you like, you could then experiment with other neutral colours that will pair well in your wardrobe.
