Being a super stylish man isn’t always easy, but if there’s one thing that can make it a lot less difficult, it’s focusing on style rather than fashion. To paraphrase Yves Saint Laurent: fashions come and go by style is forever. That is to say, what’s in fashion changes from season to season, but true style always looks good.
How does that help you? Well, if you focus on collecting stylish wardrobe staples instead of wasting your money on fast fashion, you will always be able to throw together an amazing outfit. With that in mind, here are a few important style staples that every man should have in his wardrobe:
An Oxford Shirt
Oxford shirts are the epitome of effortless style. Having at least one crisp, white, fitted Oxford shirt in your wardrobe will mean that you always have something to go to when you need to look amazing in a hurry. Of course, having one in every color will be even more convenient, and enable you to dress well for any occasion.
A Well-Made pair of Jeans
If you can find a pair of jeans that are well made, that fit well and that come in a flattering shade of dark blue, buy as many pairs as you can afford. Why? Because not only will they make your butt look amazing, but you’ll be able to wear them anytime anywhere and they’ll last you for many years to come.
A Classic Crew neck
Crew neck t-shirts are so easy to wear and they go with everything from your favorite pair of jeans to khaki chinos, shorts and well… you get the idea. A good crew neck should be made from 100 percent natural fibers and hug your body without being so tight that you might as well not be wearing it at all.
A Solid Watch
Men don’t necessarily need many accessories, but one thing you should invest in is a solid, well-made watch, something like a precision aviation watch or Rolex, which is as impressive looking as it is practical. That way, when you want to dress up a but or look more professional, you can pop it on and you’ll see an instant change.
A Bomber Jacket
Bomber jackets are amazing because you can wear them all year round and they are just as compatible with casual outfits as they are smarter ensembles. If you can afford it, invest in a leather bomber, and if you take good care of it, it could last you a whole lifetime.
A Navy Suit
Every man needs a suit for those formal occasions and navy is less likely to date or stick out in a bad way than black. Ideally, it should be tailored to you and paired with a crisp white or pastel shirt.
Brown Lace-Up Shoes
A well-polished pair of brown lace-up shoes are a wardrobe basic, but they are a basic that can elevate any outfit, bringing a touch of class in an instant.
White sneakers go with everything from chinos and jeans to shorts, so find a pair that you love and make sure they’re always ready and waiting to make your casual outfits complete.
