Fashion is not only related to women anymore. Gone are the days when men’s fashion were boring and monotonous. Now, men take as much inspiration from the runways and trends as women do! For guys, having a minimalist wardrobe is quite useful in many ways, especially when you are getting late for office and you open your cupboard to find a mess of tangled hangers and clothes. The secret to classy style and great outfits is to have basic, timeless and versatile pieces in your wardrobe that you can style differently, making sure your style game is on point every time! Here’s the ultimate style guide to what a dapper man’s wardrobe should actually look like this spring-summer season and how every dude out there can pull it off with the minimum of efforts and maximum of style.
This season, minimalism is the name of the game. If you want to go minimal, yet score full points for your laid-back and smart casual looks, just follow the trends and keep it simple. Play around with the textures as you go for a linen polka dotted semi-formal shirt and pair it with a navy, beige or burgundy cuffed chinos or corduroy pants. Complete the look with printed slip-ons and a leather band watch for a classy yet simple look. You can even go for denim on denim as you layer a basic Henley t-shirt with a denim button down and team it up with ripped denim pants and canvas sneakers perfect for a casual lunch date. Donning a pair of tailored Bermuda shorts with polo t-shirts or a printed casual shirt and canvas loafers is also a great way to dress for a Sunday brunch.
This goes out to all the dapper dudes who like to travel in style, even if it’s a work trip. Setting out on a trip to attend an important conference, product launch or to seal the deal for your company requires you to have your suave look on point. Go for a crisp and classic white shirt and team it with a navy or burnt orange suit instead of going for the predictable blacks or browns. You can even sport a neutral suit and prep it up with a printed tie or kerchief or go for a grey pinstriped suit with a black tie and matte black oxfords to look like you mean serious business. For a more business casual look, opt for a dapper striped or checked shirt, well-fitted chinos, suede moccasins and a smart watch to make sure your travels are successful!
This timeless trend is forever found in a fashionable man’s wardrobe and is a go-to choice for most trendy men out there. This season, enhance the monochrome trend with the use of elements such as white or black denim be it a white denim pant with a black graphic tee or a black denim jacket over a white casual shirt, which if pulled off correctly can make an effective style statement. You can even go for white printed shirts and pair it with black jeans for a smart monochrome movie date-night look. Opt for something as basic as a black and white striped Henley t-shirt and pair it with blue jeans and white sneakers for a cool campus look this season. Thus, monochrome can be styled as and how you wish – just making sure to pair the two star colors in such a way that it doesn’t clash with the rest of the elements.
Athleisure, as we know is the trend of being comfy and looking stylish at the same time, but it’s a lot more than just wearing your gym clothes everywhere. This trend has been here for quite some time and we can say for sure that it doesn’t plan to bid goodbye anytime soon! You can definitely rock this cool trend by pairing athleisure staple denim joggers with t-shirts or jerseys, bomber jackets and white sneakers. Accessorize further with baseball caps or duffle bags and you are all set for a day out with the guys. You can even go for comfy track pants and pair them up with polo t-shirts or hoodies and smart trainers for an ideal road-trip-worthy look. Try incorporating pieces of athleisure in your regular looks – be it at college or on a coffee date with the girl – and have fun with this trend!
