Do you know the difference between style and fashion? Fashion is temporary; style is permanent. And it is “Style that maketh a man.” It is the style that separates the boys from men. Style makes heads turn, gets other guys jealous, and makes women weak in their knees.
But how do you become stylish? How do you ensure that you become the center of attention whenever you step out? Well, the answer is simple: being well-dressed from top to bottom.
However, being well-dressed is easier said than done. You will need a wardrobe filled with dressing essentials that make you look hot, suave, and stylish every single time. So, what are these men’s dressing essentials we are talking about? Let’s find out.
- Tailored Suit
Every man needs to have one suit in their wardrobe. This elegant, classic piece of clothing defines style, versatility, and grace. However, whenever you decide to buy or wear a suit, do it right.
Always have a tailored, custom-made suit that perfectly fits your frame. Don’t go for readymade, ill-fitted, overflowing options because they will make you look lanky and unattractive, no matter your physique.
You can choose neutral colors like black, navy blue, or gray, as they accentuate your looks regardless of your skin tone and body shape.
Here’s a universal law that you need to remember: If the pants have loops (which almost everyone has), you must wear a belt. It shouldn’t matter if the pants fit perfectly. Belts are essential men’s accessories.
There are different types of belts for men. You can choose according to the type of pants you are wearing. For example, if you are wearing a formal outfit, pair it up with a black or brown leather belt.
Similarly, if you wear something casual like jeans, you can opt for men’s stretch belts. These stretch belts are elastic, ensuring you always get a perfect, comfortable fit around your waist. Moreover, the stretch belt comes in different colors, designs, and patterns, providing the fashion quotient.
- Custom-Fit Trousers
You also need to have custom-fit trousers to match your shirts, blazers, and suits. Similar to suits, make sure that the trousers are tailored for your body as well.
You can choose from different types of trousers based on the fabric, fit, and other features. For instance, you can choose ankle-length trousers instead of full-length ones to add flair to your dressing. Similarly, you can choose between chinos, formal pants, khakis, and jeans, depending on your outfit.
Irrespective of your choice, remember to wear well-fitted trousers at all times.
Where do we even begin? Having a nice, decent watch is like icing on the cake, and it adds to your look. Agreed, today we have smartphones and other devices to check the time. But, believe us when we say nothing (and we mean nothing) beats the look of a classic timepiece.
There are limitless options when it comes to watches. You can even have a wardrobe full of different types of watches. For instance, you can have a handmade, analog luxury watch to go with formal attire. Similarly, for a more casual look, you can wear a digital watch or a smartwatch.
Did you know that shoes are the first thing people notice about you? So, remember to always wear nice shoes.
A nice pair of shoes will also help complete your look and give it a nice little upgrade. You have various options to go for, such as leather shoes, dress shoes, loafers, sneakers, and others. Always have a pair of black or brown shades that can go along with most of the outfits. When it comes to style, you can blindly go for an Oxford loafer on most occasions.
Remember to always keep your shoes spick and span. Dirty, discolored, and dull shoes will ruin your entire look. Thus, invest in good shoe polish and other shoe cleaning materials to ensure that your feet always keep shining.
If you still don’t know, then hear it from us. Women like men who smell nice. Just find a nice scent that can stimulate the olfactory senses of everyone around you. But don’t get drenched in it. Just spray a little on different body parts, such as the inside of the wrists, neck, chest, and shoulders.
If you are unsure about the type of fragrance, you can go for earthy, woody smells. You can never go wrong with them. Similarly, citrus fragrances are also a good go-to option.
No ‘look’ is complete without a pair of chic sunglasses, whether they be wayfarers, aviators, wrap-around, sports, or clubmasters. Sunglasses have become the ultimate fashion accessories for men.
Sunglasses are best done in black. You can also go for models having color tinted glass and gold or silver hardware to add to the style. Some of the best sunglasses fashion brands available are Ray-Bans, Saint Laurent, Persol, Oakley, and Carrera.
We are not talking about massive, bulky wallets that produce a bulge in your pants. Rather, we are talking about compact, thin, slim, and simple ones that are almost invisible in your clothing.
We recommend that you have at least one leather wallet in your wardrobe in black or brown color as they are timeless, elegant, classic pieces that go well with any outfit.
You can also choose other styles based on your preferences.
- All-Black Outfit!
No matter where you’re going, what the occasion is, and what outfit style you wear, there is always an all-black outfit to fall back on, even in casual settings. So, grab a black shirt, black trousers, black shoes, black sunglasses, and a black watch. The final result will be jaw-dropping.
So, fill your wardrobe with at least one black-colored item for every piece of clothing and accessory that you can rely upon at all times.
These were our picks of men’s dressing essentials. We hope that you already have them in your wardrobe. If not, go ahead and buy the things you are missing right away. They will keep you looking well-groomed, handsome, sophisticated, and charming at all times!
