WARDROBE ESSENTIALS TO SEE YOU THROUGH EVERY OCCASION
Your occupation and lifestyle will inform the detail of your wardrobe but these ten essentials are a strong foundation from which to build.
A dark, well tailored suit
Ideally custom made or professionally fitted. Dark grey or navy are the most versatile. Black can look too formal for some occasions. A well made suit is a must so ensure you have a range to suit all of your professional and leisure needs.
An unstructured suit or separates
This can be a navy blazer and grey wool pants or a relaxed suit that you can mix and match. A suit jacket or blazer can dress up a more casual outfit for less formal occasions.
Blue jeans and khakis
Find a store with helpful attendants and make sure you get the right cut for your body shape and leg length. Replace these once they start to get worn and use the older pairs for handyman or gardening work on weekends.
A well made pair of black loafers or lace up shoes. Purchase shoes made from high quality leather and take good care of them. You can wear these with your suits, jeans or khakis.
A versatile tie
Solid colour or classic diagonal stripe will see you through any occasion.
A white dress shirt
This classic shirt is essential for your formal occasions.
Invest in a good quality overcoat for work in winter and a 3/4 length trench or pea coat for weekends and leisure time.
A casual or button down shirt
For parties, brunches, dinners and family events. The classic white polo is a safe, stylish and versatile option.
