Wardrobe essentials change just as easily as the seasons. While we all try to keep abreast of amazing fashion trends, there are particular pieces that remain fashionable through every season and can be used to build a timeless wardrobe. These are known as wardrobe essentials.
In the simple and powerful words of Yves Saint Laurent “Fashion fades, but style is eternal.” In other words, fashion trends don’t last long but style, as in personal preference, is more permanent. As the seasons change, what was relevant in one season may not be relevant in the next season. After the trends have gone, your style formula and aesthetics remains basically the same and so do particular pieces with which every man should be able to build his wardrobe.
Turtlenecks and knit sweaters are essential for the colder seasons while light cotton shirts are a must-have when the temperature peaks, however besides the white shirt, here are wardrobe pieces every man should own as they defy weather and climate…
Double breasted suit
In the art of power dressing which every man should dabble in every now and then, a double-breasted suit is a must!
A pair of denim trousers
Denim will never go out of style or season and they are easily styled whenever and however.
A denim jacket
One of the easiest and most practical ways to channel the cool kid vibe is to put on a denim jacket. It’s better when you put it on your shoulders with some shades on and boom! Instant cool kid!
The bomber jacket
This the other alternative to a denim jacket and an even more stylish alternative if I’m being asked. It can be dressed down or up as one feels.
The casual Friday go-to shoes regardless of the season and the best part is that sneakers go with just about anything.
An everyday bag
Bags are trendy and they are one of the most stylish ways to carry all your daily essentials regardless of the season.
A classic timepiece
One thing that can never be overemphasized is a classic and stylish timepiece for a man. A perfect time piece has the same effect as the perfect perfume, a subtle yet powerful attractive aura that blends a whole look.
A pair of khaki trousers
In as much as we want to, we can’t wear denim trousers every day and on those days you can always turn to a pair of extra comfortable and yet easily dressed up khaki trouser.
