There’s nothing nicer than seeing a member of the male population wear sophisticated clothing, rather than baggy jeans and baseball caps. It’s never too late to give your wardrobe a makeover and head over to the sophisticated side either. Make sure you’ve got these 9 items and you’re good to go!
A Classic Trench
The classic trench coat should be a wardrobe staple for any man. It can be worn with any outfit at all and help to dress it up. It shows off shape, will keep you warm, and will give off a great impression. Don’t be without this item if you want to give off an air of sophistication!
A Crisp, White Shirt
What’s a wardrobe without a crisp white shirt? You can wear this with a few buttons undone at the weekend, underneath a warm sweatshirt, or even to work. It’s a wardrobe essential for the sophisticated male.
A Fitted Suit
There’s nothing worse than a suit that hangs off a man. This means he bought it straight off the rack. While there’s nothing wrong with buying a suit straight off the rack, it should fit you properly. If it doesn’t, get it altered. Better yet, buy a made to measure suit if you can afford it. If you don’t, you might end up looking like you’ve got a court date, rather than an important meeting for, instance.
A Black Vest
The black vest is a simple piece, but it can help give a commanding presence when you’re working in the office. Great for looking suave at the dinner table too!
Quality shoes, such as hand hammered brogues are the best item you can have in your wardrobe. Did you know that some women actually judge men based on their shoes? Make sure yours are sophisticated and shiny. Don’t let them get scuffed, or worse, wear training shoes (unless you’re heading to the gym).
A Cashmere Sweater
The cashmere sweater is soft and luxurious looking, yet it goes perfectly with a guy who wears a bit of stubble. This is a winter staple, and women just love it. Great for casual days off work and very fashion forward.
A Go-To Tie
Some occasions call for a tie. Make sure yours is noticeable so that you make the right impression. Navy blue ties and a dark red tie are both good choices. You can even afford to have a small pattern on there.
A Simple Blazer
The simple blazer can be worn dressed up or casually. Either way, it’s a great way to make you look classier.
A Man Bag
Don’t be afraid of the man bag guys. It won’t feel girly at all once you get used to it. We’re all accumulating more stuff these days, and the man bag just means you’ve accepted it. Don’t let your wallet or mobile fall out of your pocket ever again.
You have these 9 items? Congratulations, you’re a ready-made sophisticated guy. You don’t? Go out and get ‘em!
