Men’s Wardrobe Essentials

As we step into the year 2020, we can continue to say that more men have become aware and forward-thinking fashion-wise. Having every piece of wardrobe well-coordinated is no more a woman’s thing and, frankly, there’s no better news than this.

Still, it can be a bit confusing when it comes to understanding exactly what things you should have to look effortlessly stylish as let’s face it, the options can be a tad bit restricted. To help you in your task, we have compiled a list below of things that are essential to a complete a man’s wardrobe. Without any further ado, let’s get started!

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 1: Shirts

When you say the word ‘shirts‘, we don’t necessarily only mean formal or dress shirts. We are talking about everyday casual shirts as well. After all, you would want to have something appropriate for going for brunch as well as going for a party.

Try to get your hands on varied colors such as black, blue, light yellow, lavender, red, green, and purple. Embrace the color pink also. If you feel like experimenting a bit more, you can opt for different shirt designs such as color blocking, pinstripes, satin, and polka dots to the usual cotton, linen, or polyester.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 2: Jeans

We will start by asking you to invest in dark and light pieces of denim in the color black and blue as no wardrobe is complete without these four pieces of jeans. The other offbeat colors include white, grey, brown, and tan.

If you are under the impression that buying a pair of jeans is easy, let us stop you right there. There are just so many styles and fit options for you to consider. We would personally recommend you to opt for tapered or straight-fit cut jeans that is medium to light washed.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 3: Slippers

Even men deserve the softness and ample cushion that slippers give while they lounge around in their homes. The good thing about this is the sheer variety available in the market at the moment.

There are actually slippers for men that have been designed to resemble a casual shoe for men such as moccasins, mules, and loafers. They are made up of fleece or felt wool and sometimes even contain faux sheepskin embellishments.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 4: Shoes

Speaking of casual shoes, it’s important that a man should own at least one pair of casual as well as dress shoes. When we speak casual, we are referring to sneakers, loafers, and moccasins. Whereas, in terms of dress shoes, think the traditional dress shoe design.

Again, try to own basic shoe colors like black and brown to complement every piece of your outfit. Having said this, there is currently a trend picking up where men are experimenting with more bold colors like red, purple, yellow or even multicolored! Gentlemen, you are finally free to explore your creative side in terms of footwear.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 5: Socks

As we have already mentioned shoes, it only makes sense to put socks for men next on our list. If your sense of style is more classic and timeless, you can still play around with your socks design and add a bit of color to an otherwise basic outfit.

And when we say color, we are talking about various patterns like polka dots, stripes, graphics, or even solids in bold colors. You should also be careful to pair your socks with regards to the type of shoes you are wearing. Sometimes, socks just need to go to give a better finish to your end look like in the case of loafers.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 6: Watch

You can save a couple of bucks when you are shopping for the other wardrobe essentials that we have mentioned above but when it comes to watches, we would advise you to invest in only branded watches and, hence, splurge a bit here.

Try to own at least one or two pieces of good quality and sleek watches for that necessary touch of pizzazz and sophistication. You can explore options such as bracelet watches or watches with a leather strap. There is more suited for suits and tuxedos.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 7: T-Shirts

You need quite a few pieces of casual T-shirts in your wardrobe. There is no set rule when it comes to casual T-shirts as it mostly depends on your own tastes and preferences. You can include solid shades, polos, embroidered or graphic T-shirts.

It would be wise to opt for cotton-based T-shirts as they can be worn throughout the season and require less care. Again, include colors that complement your jeans, chinos, shorts or trousers.

Men’s Wardrobe Essentials No. 8: Belt

Finally, the last essential on this list is to own a quality belt to make sure that your jeans or trousers stay where they are supposed to – on your hips! You can never really go wrong with a leather belt in the color black or brown. If it is possible for you and fits your budget, we would highly recommend that you add both of these to your wardrobe.

While there is absolutely no harm in experimenting with your belt, remember that your outfit options will become limited if you to buy a belt it that is made up of fabric and is red in color or is heavily embroidered. If you don’t want to spend way too much on your belts, stick to the traditional designs that are less flashy and more functional.

These are a couple of wardrobe essentials that we feel every man should own. Of course, you can add or subtract according to your personal style but if you decide to follow this list, you will be completely covered to look trendy and sharp without trying too hard.
