Wardrobe Staples Every Man Should Own

Retro, preppy, edgy, business – there are so many different fashion styles to choose from. Regardless of the trend you identify with most, some clothing staples are an absolute must and extend across every type of wardrobe and era. From classic white t-shirts and accessories to versatile jeans and iconic denim jackets, these items are the lynchpins of an interchangeable wardrobe that never goes out of style. Over a quarter of Brits stress about finding the perfect ensemble but curating on-trend outfits for every occasion takes minimal effort when you’re working with these staple pieces.

Classic items 

Everyone knows about the original white tee and it’s unsurprising that it still forms the basis for many casual looks. However, you can give yourself more range and make a simple yet definite statement when you opt for a few different colours. Navy, dark greys and black are neutral options that are guaranteed to go with everything. These tops match nicely with a pair of blue or black jeans. These bottoms are not only comfy, but jeans are easy to maintain, durable and can be worn on a variety of different occasions. With the right accessorising, jeans can take you from day to night.

Smart wear 

For those special milestones and formal evenings, something a little snazzier is required to suit the occasion. Fitted trousers, smart shoes and a dress shirt offer a perfect look for a dinner out at a fancy restaurant or in the office. Pair with a sleek fitted blazer and a tie to make a handsome ensemble ideal for weddings, birthdays, engagement parties and other formal affairs. Spring menswear trends for 2024 are forecasting the rise of oversized double-breasted blazers in charming check patterns and plaid. These can be worn open or done up in both the summer and winter. If you’re looking for something a little more versatile, choose a blazer in a block neutral colour. 


Accessories are everything in fashion. These little details tie your outfit together, while creating an interesting detail that says something about your personality. A luxury watch can transform any look, whether you’re going out to socialise with friends or off to an important meeting. The same goes with classic jewellery pieces such as a gold signet ring or sterling silver pendant. Sunglasses are another accessory that can alter the entire vibe of an outfit, depending on how they are styled. In the winter, take full advantage of it being scarf season and remember that tote bags reign supreme in warmer months.

Jacket and coats 

Typically, one of the first things someone notices about your outfit is your outerwear, so you need to make a good choice. Few clothing items have withstood the shifting sands of style quite like leather and denim jackets. You’ll find seasonal styles that will keep you warm and cool respectively and they never fail to impress. For outerwear that pairs well with smart wear, opt for a trench coat. These coats offer an air of sophistication that is the signature of the style.
