Mens Wardrobe Essentials You Need To Build The Best Outfits

Mens fashion can be a minefield, especially when you enter into an average high street fashion store only to find the smallest corner of mens clothes stuffed right in the back, while women's clothes seem endlessly available. Fortunately, figuring out how you can build the best possible wardrobe using the most essential fashion pieces doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might initially imagine, as there are several simple tips and tricks that you can make the most of to create some seriously stylish outfits with ease. So, if you’re interested in finding out more, then read on!

T-Shirts & Basic’s 

First and foremost, you’re going to need a variety of t-shirts and other basic items like tank tops that are useful for both casual summer wear, layering and sportswear. A plain white t-shirt is such an essential item no matter what kind of fashion style you prefer, as it can be worn as a minimal stand alone shirt, or worn beneath a flannel, jacket or jumper for layering. A tank top is ideal when you’re visiting the beach or want to stay cool during the summertime, especially if you’re working out and need to let your skin breathe. You can also wear a white tank top beneath your workwear to keep warm during the colder winter months. A long sleeved cotton shirt can also be worth beneath a jumper or flannel during the winter to keep you warm when the temperatures drop, or paired with some jeans for a super casual daytime look. If you have any kind of statement wardrobe items that boast a particularly eye-catching pattern, print or colour, then you can match it up with your basics to tone down your outfit. Make sure you source high quality basic items as they will likely be worn far more frequently than other items in your wardrobe. 

Stylish Workwear 

Next, it’s time to focus on workwear. If you work in a professional environment such as an office, then you likely need some kind of suit or other smart professional clothing that provides you with confidence while also giving off an impression of skill and formality. A matching suit is no doubt the most appropriate workwear that you can add to your wardrobe, as it shows that you take your style, look and likely your job more seriously - if you turn up to the office with a simple t-shirt and a pair of scruffy jeans then you will be forcing your colleagues and clients to believe that you aren’t interested in taking care of yourself or your paying much interest in your role. Be sure to source a variety of formal shirts so that you have sufficient stock to wear a clean shirt every shift, opting for a light colour such as pale blue or white to maintain the most professional image. If you want to take it one step further, perhaps because you work in a particularly high class environment, then adding a waistcoat and a pair of luxurious cufflinks is the perfect option. Your waistcoat should match in with your suit, shirt and tie without clashing, so it’s best to opt for a similar material or colour. It’s common during the summertime for suits to be too hot and constricting, so stick with your usual smart trousers and switch to a simple long sleeved lined shirt without your suit blazer - it’s far better to opt for a slightly more casual outfit rather than sweating profusely at your desk. 

A Good Dose Of Denim 

No wardrobe is complete without a good dose of denim, as a pair of jeans is a staple outfit piece that you simply can’t skip over no matter what unique style you have. Jeans come in all shapes and sizes, from more modern ripped skinny styles to traditional straight denim jeans that can be worn with almost any outfit, so it’s totally up to you what kind of denim you choose to add to your wardrobe. However, you must take the time to source the best quality jeans that are made to last, as they’re usually worn in more casual situations that require more movement or increase the risk for scuffs and tears. You don’t want to have your jeans splitting at the rear when you bend down to sit on the grass during an evening in the sun with your friends, so find some good brands that are known for creating top standard pieces out of strong organic cotton with long lasting dyes. Cheap black jeans will turn grey far faster than you could ever imagine, so it’s always best to source more expensive dyed jeans to avoid such an issue from detracting from your outfit. You might also like to add a denim jacket to your outfit, as they’re becoming much more mainstream and on-trend. Whether you choose a typical blue denim jacket or a rocker-style studded black denim jacket, they’re always a good piece that you can easily use to build a quality outfit. 

Jumpers & Jackets

Next up is jumpers and jackets, as this is an area that many men struggle with. A jumper is an essential casual piece that you can wear whether you’re headed to the movies or going out for a round of mini golf, so be sure to take a look at some good quality branded men’s hoodies that fit with your aesthetic. It’s easy to find unique printed hoodies that you can pair with some jeans and skate shoes for the perfect outfit to wear to any kind of casual social occasion, so be sure to add one to your wardrobe to make getting dressed to head out as easy as ever. Aside from the aforementioned denim jackets that can be ideal during the summer, you’ll need a few options for the winter to keep you warm without detracting from your aesthetic. Simply piling on a plain black waterproof jacket isn’t the best option, as this is one of the unfashionable and lifeless items you could ever choose to throw on. Instead, take a look at some of the jackets available on the most popular men's fashion brands to see which styles are hot right now. In recent years, puffer jackets have taken mens fashion by storm, and this could be the perfect option for your wardrobe if you like streetwear. Alternatively, a parka coat is a brilliant jacket choice for more traditional fashion styles, as they’ve long been popular amongst many different types of fashion genres due to their adaptability. You may also like a ‘shacket’ of sorts - a shacket is a cross between a shirt and a jacket, which can be perfect for more formal gatherings that require you to maintain a professional image. 

With any luck, this guide has made it easier than ever to fill your wardrobe with the most amazing fashion essentials that you need to build some brilliant outfits for day, night, work or play. Finding the best brands is often half of the battle, but it can be beneficial to check out thrift stores and vintage clothing sites to get more unique clothing that isn’t available on the high street. Your fashion is an expression of you, so don’t be afraid to throw your own personal spin on each outfit that you wear so that you can stay as confident as can be. So, there’s no time like the present to transform your wardrobe so that you can dress to impress and look amazing no matter what the situation!
