Blame the effortless top-liners like Benedict Cumberbatch, George Clooney, and David Beckham, but every time someone talks about a gentleman, you picture these sharply dressed men, who embrace style with absolute ease. Sure, it’s great to pick up a fresh shirt, roll up the sleeves, and pair it with matching shoes. But this International Men’s Day, why not take it up a notch? Here are some dapper outfit ideas for the modern gentleman to make some serious fashion waves!
Classy in Casuals
Here’s an untold fact about men’s fashion: less is more. A minimalistic casual outfit will look both, approachable and comfortable for a lunch setting. Rock the basics in an all denim look. Pair this matt, slim fit black denim over a solid teal blue shirt and comfortable slip-ons.
Pro tip– Accessorise with a pair of trendy polarised wayfarers to step up your style game on this day!
You can also trade the shirt for a timeless unbuttoned checked long sleeve shirt on a white crew neck t-shirt for an effortlessly cool ensemble.
Pro tip– Add a street style twist to the look with this textured and trendy cap that perfectly complements the attire for the day.
Dress It Up
You don’t need to look like Ranveer Singh in a designer suit at your next party to make a statement. It takes more than a crisp shirt and a 3-piece suit to make a gentleman. This International Men’s Day, be a true gentleman by standing out in the crowd and yet, subtly blending in.
If it is a smart dinner party, try a suit as the foundation of your outfit. Pick a fitted beige or khaki blazer set over a crisp white shirt and brown loafers for a party night with friends.
Pro tip– Pair a vintage leather strap watch for a polished look.
You can also opt for a knit polo shirt tucked in with beige trousers for a less formal setting.
Pro tip– Accessorise with a semi-formal belt and leather brogues for a versatile day-to-night party outfit.
Contemporary Meeting Wear
Business meetings come with an additional pressure to look smart, but don’t let that get to you. From boardroom to coffee shop meetings, stay sharp in these styles.
Pair the quintessential blue suit set with a blush pink crisp shirt and formal shoes for a comfortably stylish look.
Pro tip– A solid formal tie has the understated power to take your outfit from drab to fab.
If you are in the mood to ditch your super formal wear, swap your trousers for a pair of acid-washed jeans and a single-breasted blazer to complete the look.
Pro tip– Pair the ensemble with classic tan leather shoes and sunglasses.
