Fashionista, Style Consultant, Author and New Country Mercedes driver (they sponsor this segment!), Debbie Wright is back with more style tips for your closet, and your business! Check out her tips, then get ready to reinvent YOUR wardrobe!
A lot of young men– especially the ones just getting into the workforce and launch their careers– always wonder what are those essential pieces every business man should have in his wardrobe. Debbie has the answers!
1. Solid Gray or Blue suit
This one’s the most important, but it’s important to remember a suit, and the rest of the wardrobe, should be built around fit and quality first and foremost. Whether you’re purging, getting back to the basics, or just getting started, you’ll pay a little more but your wardrobe will last a lot longer. This is especially important for essentials, since you’ll be wearing them quite often.
2. Navy blue Blazer
You’ll wear this multiple times, so buy the best quality blazer you can.
3. Straight Cut Blue Jeans
Not so much for the workplace, but they’re still essential.
4. Polished Khaki pants
The all-cotton khaki pants you wear on the weekend or golfing, aren’t necessarily the khakis you want to wear to the office.
5. Dress Shirts
Stick to white and light blue dress shirts, made of finer fabrics. And be sure they don’t have the button-down collar, because that’s more casual.
6. Black Cap-Toe Shoes
These are classic, polished shoes, with a division at the tip of the shoes, and they look great.
Belts are extremely important– accessories for men are very simple, but very important. For belt essentials, you’ll want black, brown and tan, keeping them interchangeable. And be sure your belt and shoes always match.
Whether men are starting off their career, or they’ve been working and are looking to de-clutter the closet, it’s really great to get back to the basics.
