10 Wardrobe Essentials For Every Man

Apart from your normal wardrobe items, there are some basic items in your wardrobe that you cannot do without and they form 70% of any well put together outfit.

These items are the essential in every man's closet cos they make-up the foundation of any successful wardrobe... I've compiled 10 basic wardrobe essentials that every man needs to have. Be inspired!

Tailored Suit in Black or Grey

Every man’s closet should be built upon a strong suit. All guys need at least one suit that is perfectly tailored to their body and black or grey are the two best colors that goes with any occasion. From work to weddings, and to a formal date; a classic, tailored black or gray suit will never disappoint you.

A Classic White Button-down Shirt

The classic white button down is just as much a necessity for men as it is for women. This is the most versatile item in your wardrobe and there is very little that won’t go with it. You can wear it with a suit for work and alone or under a round neck sweater for a more casual look.

Straight-cut dark Denim Jeans

Although skinny jeans might be trendy right now, wearing a straight-cut denim jean looks more stylish especially one of a darker tone.
Dress them up with sports coat, or wear them on a polo or your favourite graphic tee. For a more business-casual look, pair them with a button-down shirt and throw on a blazer to complete your look.

Khaki or Chinos

Every man should have a pair of thick-fabric pants, which are ideal for more casual affairs. Khakis or chinos allow you to look polished without being as “dressed up” as you might feel in suit paints – but still less casual than a pair of jeans. They also go with just about anything.

Checked/Plaid Shirt

This is a staple every man should own in his closet. It doesn't go out of style and it can go with every outfit and for any occasion depending how you style it. Look for something with a pop of color that is still relatively neutral and has a light base.

Black skinny Tie

You should also consider investing in a high quality black skinny tie. The skinny tie gives a more streamlined look, and will instantly make you look distinguished in any occasion.

Grown-up Watch

Regardless of your job, every man should own at least one grown-up watch: One that has a clean face, leather or metal band, and looks great with any clothing. A well-made watch shows off your personal style, so choose wisely.

A Pair of Oxfords

A pair of professional oxfords can never steer you wrong, particularly for formal wear. Choose something in black or brown leather – they can look just as great with suits as they can with khakis and a sport coat. If you work in an office with a business professional dress code, it's best to opt for oxfords than loafers.


I must say, choosing the right sneakers should totally depend on your style first before you go for trends.  Choose colors and brands that will go with any outfit and on any casual event.

The Perfect White T-Shirt

Lastly, a well-made white t-shirt can be a great companion piece for many of your outfits. Whether you purchase your white t-shirts in a pack of three or you spend more money for a named brand, remember that they only work when they’re perfectly laundered and stay white.
