Every guy knows those days where they just don't know what to wear. You are standing in front of your closet for a while and nothing comes to your mind. Then definitely you are going to think like I have no clothes and nothing to wear, I must start building my wardrobe. So, I can help you to deal with those problems, so that it never happens ever again. Today we find out the 7 items that every guy needs in his closet so that we look good at all time, starting with my personal favorite.
1. A Leather Jacket:
I have been always a huge fan of leather jackets. Come on guys, you know it just makes the process of choosing the right outfit very simple when you have one of these in your closet. But if you are off to buy your first one, do not go for the crazy ones with like all the hardware and the crazy logos and details. Start with a classic black leather jacket. You literally cannot go wrong with these. Back in the days, I used to think that I would never be able to own a leather jacket because I will not be able to pull it off. It was too much for me. You know, it is too edgy, etc. But I’ll tell you now, if that’s what you’re thinking then you’re wrong. Try it, try different sizes and styles at a store and see for yourself and I promise you can pull this off.
2. Black Jeans:
Now I could make a closet of essential clothes but without these, it just wouldn’t make any sense. Because the reality is if am running late, and I don’t have time to think about my outfit. I can immediately grab a pair of black jeans because I know they will go well with everything. But when one is talking about buying black jeans, there are two things to keep in mind. One, the fit needs to be perfect. Not too baggy, not too skinny, and definitely not too long. Two, they need to be solid black with no fading, no logos, and no designs. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to mix and match them with your other clothes in your closet. With a nice classic pair of black jeans, you can wear a sports leather denim bomber jacket. But, it goes well with everything including. You can rock with a simple t-shirt and jeans look.
3. Chelsea Boots:
I love my Chelsea boots and for good reason. These boots are versatile. You know that is the most important quality of each and every clothing item that we are going over today. You can wear them with a t-shirt and jeans, or you can wear them with a suit. Not many items are this versatility and can achieve this variety of range. What means is less time standing in front of your closet trying to figure out what you’re going to wear, and whether or not your clothes are going to match. There is no need. Chelsea boots are easy to mix and match. If you do not already own a pair, then I would recommend black ones or maybe tan which are even more versatile, and you don’t have to spend more money on a bunch of different ones.
4. A watch:
A lot of guys do not understand why it is such a good add-on to your outfit, so let me explain. Every man needs a watch. It’s one of those few masculine accessories we can wear with pretty much anything in our closet. Even when you’re working out, you can rock a smartwatch or you can rock a Fitbit. When you’re rocking a suit, you go for something a little bit more classy. If you’re wearing a basic outfit, a watch is going to make that outfit so much better. It is an easy way to take a basic outfit, and then dial it up enough so that people will notice that you have put some effort into your look.
5. A White Oxford Shirt:
If you do not have this in your closet, I do not know how you expect to dress nicely for like a classy or formal event. A white button-up shirt is not something that we can forget to have. It is pretty much required as a man because honestly, if you are planning to go anywhere upscale, or anywhere requires a tie like a job interview, then guess what, you will need a white button-up shirt. You can even pull-off an easy and casual summer look with these. What you must do is undo some of those buttons roll up the sleeves and you are good to go. One thing I will say is to make sure that it is not too baggy around your torso. Those just make you look bigger than you are. It makes you look too wide and it does not look good. So make sure that it fits you properly.
6. White Sneakers:
We have already checked off the Chelsea boots. Now that is done, let's add some white sneakers to your closet. And with that, your shoe game is done and on point. Between those two, you can create so many different awesome outfits. I have always like white sneakers for how they make your outfit look, but also how versatile they are. But the secret here is to keep them clean, right? I think that is the hardest part. I’d say one should think about the weather. Think about where you’re going. You don't want your fresh white kicks to be ruined in the rain. Maybe here you should go for the Chelsea boots if it’s going to rain, or if you are going to be stepped on, like in a music festival or something like that. Those places are probably not the best place for white sneakers.
7. Denim Jacket:
The best thing about denim jackets to me is that you can pretty much wear them year-round. Especially in India, we have warm winters, so it works. But maybe if you live somewhere cold from spring to summer to fall, you can still wear them in the spring and fall seasons. During summer you can rock them at night. They are light and they are not warm like a leather jacket or bomber jacket. The cool thing is, it's a 90s trend, and it came back with a bang, and it looks like it's here stay. Denim jackets are even more popular than ever. You even pulled off a denim on denim look it works.
