The basics to build your wardrobe!
The power simple plan!
Let’s assume that you want to reinvent your wardrobe and you have been looking for help. You are one of those, who has started to accept the importance of dressing sharp. The biggest question? Where to start from? What should be those style pieces which will help you take your style game places? Well, we asked our Style Agents to pick the basics or fundamentals of menswear, and they obliged. Here are their picks of style basics every man should have to get things going, be it any situation, any place or any occasion.
Let’s start with the humble (not really) white shirt. A crisp white shirt is the starting point of any man’s wardrobe and if it fits like this one here, well you are in good hands. Pair it with anything and everything and it shall never disappoint you or anyone around you.
Talking about basics, here is one of our magnum opuses. A new twist to the classic baseball T-Shirt, we added contrast 3/4 sleeves for more drama and a henley neck. This one is a must have for all the gents. Pair it with your jeans and bomber jackets or just casually throw it over your chinos for some instant preppy vibes.
A pair of blue trousers is God sent. No really, the ability to be versatile gives them this status in menswear arena. We pick these cotton trousers with a zip and thread detailing to make it a not so common blue pair. Well the opportunities are endless with this basic blue pair. Make your call, Sir!
Summer is about whites and when it comes with this basic Henley T- Shirt, we can’t thank our stars enough! No really, this one is simple, practical and very applicable if you spend hours at the gym. Henley is a ladies favourite due to it’s right cut and it gives you enough chances to boast your well chiselled torso.
A plaid shirt is now considered a year long affair and a must have in any modern dandy’s wardrobe. We recommend this one in red and black to add some dark vibes with a certain contrast to your wardrobe. Club yours with dark denims or just go for trust worthy dark slim trousers.
A basic sweatshirt in grey melange is every man’s staple sweatshirt! Cut on a soft and light combed cotton terry, this will keep you intact when the mercury takes a dip after a soothing rain burst on one those chilly windy days. Wear it with almost anything and you are ready for whatever.
The joggers or sweatpants as they are called, have been enjoying a supreme prime time in a man’s wardrobe worldwide. Our take on a basic navy jogger is good for your daily chores or even when you want to laze around on long Sunday afternoons! Cut on soft Terry, they are your perfect down-time me companion.
Not owning a navy double breasted blazer is like asking your mom if she can cook! The versatile navy blazer is one piece that can uplift any of your looks. Pair it with a t-shirt over slim fit denims for casual vibes or just match it with your suit trousers and you are ready to dominate. The best example of the fact that basic packs more power.
These linen trousers are your best saviour. Made in season’s best pastel shade, this is your go-to option for any occasion. Try them with a darker shade for nice contrast or simply wear it with something of same shade and we don’t see no reason why you should not be exhibiting your summer state of mind.
A pair of solid dark denims is something that needs to be in your wardrobe. This pair is perfect for our mates who have a casual working Friday where you can style these solid denims with a button down shirt and you’re sorted for the day! That’s precisely the reason why our Style Agents highly recommend you to invest in a pair such as this!
There is actually no need for having too many options in your wardrobe (though more the merrier) but these basics are the laying stone of a solid wardrobe. We have picked these after a good consideration, show us some love!
