It’s no secret that I love shopping. I don’t only shop for myself, but I love shopping for my husband as well. There’s something about a well-dressed man that makes the heart skip a beat. Since my husband works in construction, his work style has a more utility feel. At baseball games on the weekends, he dresses for comfort. When we get to enjoy the occasional night out, I expect him to be more classic and stylish.
Since men’s fashion isn’t as fun as women’s, I make sure that he has certain items in his closet that can easily work for a night on Miami Beach or an easy dinner with friends.
5 Must Have Items in a Man’s Closet
Simple White Button Down:
This never goes out of style. A man in a crisp white button down is just so clean and….sexy. They can roll up the sleeves for a more casual feel or pair it with a blazer for a dressier feel.
A great pair of dark-wash jeans in a straight or slender fit will get a ton of wear in a man’s closet. Dark jeans are versatile enough to go from a casual outing to a night on the town when paired with a dress shirt and great shoes.
A blazer in gray, black, or navy is a great staple for any man’s closet. Try not to get a blazer with fancy buttons or ornate patterns. The simpler, the better. A sleek blazer can be worn with jeans, a v-neck t-shirt, and simple sneakers for a more casual approach. Put that same blazer with a pair of booties and a pressed white shirt for cocktails.
Leather oxfords are always a good idea. All men should have a nice pair in their closets for any event. It would probably even be better if they had a black and a brown pair. They are a great way to polish off any look.
A man’s belt is the best way to pull the whole outfit together. His style is best represented in the accessories he chooses. A great belt is a finishing touch that shouldn’t be overlooked.
When shopping for the must-have items for your man’s closet, the price is always a factor. You can go the most expensive route and hit up the department stores, or you can go through a service like The Black Tux, where you can rent pieces for the events and times that you need. Men can get simple pieces or entire suits.
