5 Key Basics to Beef up your Wardrobe
Your wardrobe has witnessed trends come and go, but certain definitive essentials have stayed in forever and continue to give a future-proof basis for daily well-groomed looks and super-handsome feels . Smart buys, timeless, smart- call these items what you like, but rely on them regardless. Here are a few wardrobe must-haves, especially for summers that define a well-rounded and stylish man:
VIVACIOUS WHITE AND BLACK TEES
A classic black and white tee is definitely the most worn piece in a man’s closet and opens-up to a plethora of different outfit ideas. Grab your dapper white tee and finish with denim jacket thrown over the shoulders and structured black slacks or denim blue shorts, leather belt and Chelsea boots for super-edgy feel.
For your versatile black tee go for some slim-fit distressed shorts and team with high-top white sneakers to add a classic and understated vibe to your everyday look. Or dazzle with a modish all-black-outfit. Finish your high-end get-up with a brown wide belt and a black/brown jacket.
ROCK WITH GRAYS AND COFFEE BROWNS
Gray is another amazing base layer to experiment with. Match your stylish coffee-hued top with navy blue jeans or black baggy pants to give off a fresh and eye-catching appearance instantly. Or keep it tonal with your tailored grey top by complementing it with a darker pair of grey slacks (white loose shorts are another great option) and black sneakers.
STANDOUT IN REDS AND BLUES
A dark t-shirt is always a great option for a more formal occasion and always adds more grace to your aura. For your vibrant red tees, turn heads by teaming them with some dark-wash denim jeans or white pants/Bermudas shorts, and a sophisticated dark jacket thrown over the shoulders for an easy breezy yet remarkably handsome look. Grab your cool sunnies, hot brown chinos and get ready to outshine.
INDULGE INTO PRINTS AND TANKS
It’s always fun to add a mix of prints to your look but remember to keep it panache and subtle. Grab a trendy slim-fit printed tee (we love our tropical and splattered designs) and balance it out with some brown/khaki/ blue light-wash straight or baggy pants. Style with some casual tinges with neutral converse style sneakers or loafers and add some cool shades to standout.
TANKS TO BEAT THE HEAT
Tanks are your best bet when you wish to look all fashionably edgy on the beaches and streets while beating the heat in flair. Just ensure the fit is right and opt for basic classics as they’re super easy to complement with a variety of bottoms (best with white shorts or Bermudas for a sassy summer look). Add some detailed versions with eternal checks, slogan or striped versions and complement with nice trainers and a thick wristwatch.
