You have to admit it, first impressions are important and the memory is difficult to erase. In fact, when it comes to first impressions, what you wear plays quite a role in building it. With men, this may seem rather tricky. If you’re too safe on the sartorial front, you can come across as boring. On the other hand, being rather experimental can be deemed as adventurous. That said, there are some pieces, which are absolute essentials in menswear. Whether you’re a fresher in college or starting a new job, we’ve got you all the important pieces that are building blocks in your 2018 closet. Take a look at our curation and amp up your style this year.
White Linen Shirt
A white shirt is the answer to anyone who is looking to ace formal or casual dressing effortlessly. Make sure your shirt fits well. If you’re blessed with a good body, go for a slim fit shirt. Otherwise, sport a regular fit one.
A Classy Tie
Nothing gives that final touch to a suit like a fine tie. Be it a sharp suit or a shirt with blazer and jeans, a tie is the best add on to this outfit. Rather than sticking to pieces in colours like navy blue, maroon, and prints such as basic stripes, we suggest you choose lighter hues and textures.
A Cool Portfolio Bag
Like we said, in style it is all about the details. Ditch your boring office backpack for a stylish portfolio bag. A good piece in tan, coffee, grey, or black will have people talking about your style for days. And the best part of it? The bag can be sported along with both formal and casual attire, and can carry everything from your laptop to everyday must-haves.
Stylish Black Loafers
Footwear to go with just about everything? Then a pair of slip-on loafers it is! While we prefer black as it is a safe yet interesting option that goes with just about everything, a brown or tan pair comes close too. Wear these with formals or casuals and on multiple occasions.
A Sleek Watch
A man’s wardrobe is incomplete without a watch that grabs attention without asking for it. A classy, elegant, minimalistic wristwatch is very 2018.
