Essential Items for Men 1 result

Fashion trends come and go and can be really fun for a while. Everyone wants to wear the ‘it’ style but after some time, something new comes around and the cycle starts again. There is nothing bad in that, fashion is supposed to be fun.

Sometimes people don’t want something that’s just fun but also sustainable and consequently, there has been a rise in the minimalist lifestyle. Whether it comes to clothes, stuff you own around the house, sometimes it’s best to only have the minimum. That way everything becomes a little clearer.

This is a list of 5 essential items that will help you be stylish on any occasion. A birthday party, engagement party or a joyful Christmas office party, these clothing items won’t let you down.

Leather Briefcase

Every busy man needs to put all of his essential items in one place. There are simply never enough pockets for everything. Phones are getting bigger than ever, so many of them can’t even fit into a pocket. Cargo pants are a good choice for putting everything in one place, but they aren't suitable for every occasion.

So the best thing you can do to resolve this irritating problem is to invest in a high-quality bag. Briefcases, handbags or messenger bags are all very stylish and will make you look more put together. It’s greatly recommended to invest in a high-quality leather bag because they are very sustainable, look professional, elegant and will last you for decades. If you want to achieve this kind of elegance Got Briefcase has wonderful high-quality leather bags for men!

A Chambray Shirt

5 Essential Items for Men 3 result

Chambray shirts are the perfect blend of professional meets casual. It has been said multiple times that chambray is a cousin to denim. They do have similar shades of blue like indigo, but chambray shirts differ in many ways. They are made usually from cotton, linen or cotton/linen blends and can come in a variety of colors.

Chambray shirts are very soft and smooth to the touch and breathable. You can wear them in any kind of weather and on any occasion. You can style them with a formal suit. A chambray shirt will do good as any other button-down shirt.

Chambray shirts can be styled in a quirky kind of way, where you can wear jeans, a blazer, a tie, some silly socks, and dress shoes. Everything is set but those silly socks show your fun side! Without them, it would just be a great put together outfit!

Casual Chinos

5 Essential Items for Men 4

Jeans are all over the place, and it seems as though every single person on the planet has at least one pair. They are pretty casual and you can style them with almost anything. The thing is, they can get really boring and if you’re tired of wearing the same old jeans day in and day out, you should invest in a pair of casual chinos.

Like chambray being the cousin of denim, chinos are the cousin to jeans. You can style them in absolutely any way, formal or casual, they will do the perfect job. You can treat them like denim jeans, so if you want to style them with a flannel shirt, go for it! If you want to style it with a navy blue blazer go for it! The difference between casual and formal chinos is in pockets, flat-felled seams and standard hem.

Chelsea Boots

5 Essential Items for Men 5

The past couple of years have been a game-changer for Chelsea boots. Like the rest of the list, they have become an all-time favorite for every occasion. Surely you won’t go hiking in them but everything else should be considered. Some men just aren’t comfortable in dress shoes, they feel too formal or just don’t like the way they look.

These boots are not only easy to put on but also really badass looking. As it was mentioned before you can style them in almost any way you like. When do you think about Chelsea boots what first pops into your mind? In the past Chelsea boots became the staple for badass men riding motorcycles and being just so cool. Maybe these boots will help you get the same feeling.

Hats

5 Essential Items for Men 6

A lot of men tend to forget about all of the options they have when it comes to hats. Fedoras aren’t the only thing you can wear. And besides who says they aren’t cool anymore? Overused maybe,  but certainly fun to wear. Depending on the occasion you can choose from a variety of different hats. Beanies are perfect for Autumn and Winter. They are casual when you need something to protect your head from the cold wind.

Ascot caps can really channel your inner Sherlock Holmes. Just think about the BBC’s Sherlock Holmes series starring Benedict Cumberbatch - he’s smart, cynical, cool and occasionally wears ascot caps. Flat caps can also bring your inner Sherlock out for everyone to see. Greek Fisherman hats have been very popular among ladies these days, but they are also made for men. Why not give it a try?

Conclusion

Hopefully, this list has given you an insight into how you can style your clothes in a fun way. The key, of course, is to find items of clothing that will serve you and your wardrobe whatever the occasion. All the clothing items above are casual but elegant, super comfortable and will meet all of your needs!

Celine Zara

She holds a strong belief that any design should tell a story, create atmosphere, provoke emotion and most importantly, have meaning. Celine’s collections are often inspired by reflections on society and aim to produce a positive message to make people think and reflect. Using physical objects for design details and silhouette Celine produces creative, unique, structured designs with a strong emphasis on remaining true to the concept research. Passionate about using unconventional materials, her recent Graduate collection featured metal structures, inspired by the internal structures of Cavendish Pianos, which adorned the body, working beautifully with the garments in order to create the overall shape and look of  the collection ‘Sonata in F’. She thrives on using her unique creative vision to find beauty and inspiration in the most unconventional of places, pushing the boundaries of fashion in order to create something truly inspiring.
