Fashion Tips for Men: 10 Essentials Every Man Should Own
Our service is centered around renting clothing but we firmly believe that there are some clothing items that are essential to a mans wardrobe and therefore must be bought. As we grow older and our closet expands, the items that we chose to fill it with should reflect our personalities and our style of dress in a more distinct manner. It’s sometimes hard to know what goes with what (which is where we come in) but essential items will never let us down. They are always there to spruce up a once lonely outfit or adorn a plain look.
Here’s our list of 10 essentials every man (including you!) should own:
Brown and Black Dress Shoes
Spend money on a good pair of shoes. They will be more sturdy, therefore won’t wear as easily. Plus a nice pair of shoes can elevate any look. If you are questioning which color goes with what, defer to brown. It’s always the safer choice.
A Leather Belt
There’s nothing like a well made belt to hold everything up and in. Plus, it’s the perfect accessory to tie a look together. Style tip: Always match your belt with your shoes.
A Nice Wallet
Thinner is better. There is nothing worse than a misshapen butt because a wallet is too large and overly stuffed. A compact wallet will make you look and feel good too. Plus, you never need all that stuff all at the same time anyway.
It doesn’t have to be the most expensive watch on the planet, but please invest in a nice watch. It’s a classic timepiece that will never go out of style and will always make you look even more dapper.
It is important to try on many different sizes and shapes of sunglasses. This is not a case of one size fits all. Find your perfect shape and stick with it. If you don’t know what to get, take your girlfriend or wife with you. She knows best in this department.
A White Button Down Shirt
A crisp, white button down shirt will go with everything. You can dress it up and you can dress it down. Cleaning tip: Keep it extra white by letting the sun air dry it for you. It has magical powers that your drying machine does not.
Dark jeans worn with one of your brown or black dress shoes will create an outfit you can wear on a date or for casual Friday’s at work. Dark jeans worn with a pair of loafers is perfect for a date to the movies. The point is that dark jeans will never disappoint or go out of style.
A Toiletry Bag
Stop wasting time looking through your bag to find your toothbrush or cologne. A toiletry bag is a stylish place where all your accouterments can be housed while you are on vacation.
A Weekender Bag
This bag should be in every man’s arsenal. Why? Because it has enough room for toiletries and clothing for a long weekend trip. Plus, if you are traveling by air you won’t have to check it, which means ease of travel and more money in your pocket.
Socks That Aren’t White
It is important to own solid colored dress socks and also socks that have personality. Keep those white socks for fitness use and buy yourself some socks that will add color and a bit of fun to your look.
