10 menswear essentials for a well-edited wardrobe
Getting the perfect wardrobe may seem impossible, but it’s actually much easier than you think. With a handful of timeless essentials, you can start afresh and build up your closet until you’re truly happy with every item. Start with these essential pieces and you’ll be sure to always have a stylish outfit on hand, no matter the occasion.
1. A white Oxford shirt
For an item that looks great with everything, invest in a premium quality white Oxford shirt. This crisp, clean staple can easily be tucked in thanks to its slim fit and looks just as handsome when worn loose over your favourite jeans. The best part is, this timeless piece only looks better as the sturdy cotton softens over time.
2. A well-fitting suit
A good looking slim suit is an essential for any sartorial man, as you’re going to need one eventually and you better make sure you look sharp when you do. A versatile navy suit is our top pick as it’s smart, stylish and looks good on anyone. Make sure your suit fits well and pair it with a crisp white shirt, a tie and brown or black shoes.
3. A versatile jumper
Whether you opt for an easy-to-wear sweatshirt or a handsome cashmere knit, you’re going to need a simplistic layering piece to act as a suave addition to your ensemble on cooler days. Choose a jumper in a strong solid colour and pair it with jeans or tailored trousers.
4. Slim black jeans
A comfortable pair of jet black jeans can be teamed with anything for a stylish look. Wear them with a simple t-shirt or style them with a casual blazer and shirt for the perfect smart-casual outfit. Choose a pair that’s skinny but not skin-tight for a versatile piece to wear every day.
5. Suede Chelsea boots
A stylish pair of Chelsea boots will make anything you wear look sleeker and these timeless suede shoes are always in style. Wear them with anything from jeans to a nice suit to get you through all situations.
6. A denim jacket
A denim jacket is something you’ll reach for throughout every season as the weather cools and looks great layered over black jeans and a t-shirt. Denim is the perfect weight for keeping you warm on breezy days without ever being stuffy.
7. Clean white trainers
A pair of classic white trainers can make any outfit look cool and are the perfect minimalist option for everyday wear. Wear them with joggers, with jeans or with a suit for a fail-safe finishing touch.
8. Classic chinos
Leave the jeans at home every so often and opt instead for a modern pair of trousers with a comfortable fit. The perfect pair of chinos will serve you well through casual and formal events and can be styled with shirts or tees.
9. A relaxed t-shirt
Ideally you’ll need a few of these, but a great place to start is with a well-fitting white tee crafted from premium cotton. Pair it with everything else in your wardrobe; you really can’t go wrong.
10. Statement socks
A pair of vibrant socks are a great way to make a statement without going over the top. The right pair of patterned socks show the world that you’re stylish, fun and unafraid – and they’ll keep your ankles nice and cosy, too.
