It may not be at the forefront of every bloke’s brain, but a stylish wardrobe can massively help to ensure that, whatever event your other half should throw at you, you have the perfect outfit to suit – earning style and brownie points galore!
Don’t stress yourself out with last minute rummaging to find the right trousers, or running out to the shops to panic buy something you don’t see yourself wearing again.
Instead, take a look in your wardrobe and see what you already have. Now, take another look whilst keeping in mind the following outfits, and see what you need to add to your closet to make it a perfect capsule collection.
Formal to the max
Every bloke needs a suit, even if they don’t think they do. At some point in the not so distant future, you will be required to wear a suit, and when it happens, you’ll thank yourself that you took the initiative and went out to buy one in advance.
Whether it’s an interview, a christening or a family wedding, looking suave in a suit is the only way to go. If you don’t make a habit of wearing them, just imagine the impressed looks you’ll get too!
The good thing is that, although tailored designer suits cost an arm and a leg, you don’t need to spend that much – especially when the number of times you’ll wear it doesn’t justify the expense. With George at ASDA, you can pick up a fabulous grey suit jacket and trousers for £50. Team the suit with a nice shirt, a colourful tie and a nice leather number from the range of mens belts and you’ll look a bobby dazzler.
This doesn’t necessarily mean the same as formal. This is the kind of attire you’d wear if you bag yourself an office job, or you want to treat your other half to some posh nosh at a fancy restaurant. It’s the kind of occasion when a formal suit may be a little over the top, but rocking up in jeans wouldn’t cut the mustard either.
Pick up a couple of slim fit shirts and a nice pair of chinos or textured trousers for the ultimate smart look.
If you’re planning on going for a couple of jars with your mates or taking your lady out for a date at the movies, dressing up might look a little OTT. Pick up some trendy jeans and a cool graphic print t shirt for this type of occasion.
Throw on a grey marl hoody and you’ll look fiiiine!
If you’re a sucker for style, skinny jeans are all the rage for guys this season, such as these slim fit acid wash jeans for the bargain price of £16. If you’d prefer to have a bit more ‘room to manoeuvre’, stick with the straight legged or slouch styles for ultimate comfort.
It’s not just the girls who need to have a varied wardrobe to suit every occasion. Add some staple items to your closet and be versatile and ready to go, whatever the days and nights should bring. The lady in your life is sure to be suitably impressed.
On paper, you can’t go far wrong with a pair of Chelsea boots. They’re a versatile wear-with-anything boot that will transcend the seasons – not to mention the comfort factor. It can be difficult to find footwear that’s practical and pain-free when you’re on your feet all day.
But Chelsea boots are often flat, with a small heel of half an inch or less, giving your feet just the right amount of support.
The worst thing about choosing a new pair of boots is that question, what exactly will they go with? No one wants to buy a whole new wardrobe along with their new footwear, but with Chelsea boots this really isn’t an issue. They work equally well with a leather jacket and dress as with your winter coat or army jacket and favourite pair of skinny jeans.
Just Google Alexa Chung for inspiration, as she’s rarely seen without hers !
But if you don’t dig the androgynous vibe, maybe the Western is more your style?
A feminine alternative to their more established competition, Western boots are making an appearance for 2013. These aren’t in your face cowboy boots, they’re subtle and understated with a heel or a wedge. Western boots look great with skinny jeans, leather trousers or a sleek mini – you can be daring or chic. They suit most settings, from the office to after work drinks and even dressed down for the weekend.
But if you’re going to wear them in wet weather, bypass the suede and go for leather for a more hardwearing, weatherproof option – the same goes for Chelsea boots!
So between the Chelsea and the Western, which of those ladies boots would you go for?
I will start this post with one question. What do you think of people wearing sunglasses in the winter? The right answer? None. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing sunglasses in the winter time.
If you typically leave your sunglasses at home in the winter months you shouldn’t. The sun may seem lower and you may not see it as often, but the UV rays slamming into your eyes are just as potent as those in July.
It is undeniable that Ray-Ban is one of the pioneers when it comes to the sunglasses industry, it is well known to have provided the most sophisticated and the best designs. I must admit that I am one of the people who cannot go out of the house without wearing sunglasses, no matter what season.
The Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator sunglasses is one of Ray-Ban‘s signature pieces. Designed in the 1930s for pilots, it has since become a global phenomenon and is worn by people of all ages and all face shapes.
