Are you a style freak? But are your pockets drained from splurging on expensive brands? Do you back out of a ‘must have item’ after looking at the price tag? You probably have a style syndrome (within a budget), but are probably not doing it right just yet. What you need to invest in are a horde of necessary fashion items, and ease down on the luxury items. Let us guide you to give that wardrobe of yours a fashion makeover, without burning a hole in your pocket!
- A basic essential is a good pair of denim jeans, if not more than one, always functional, and easy to pair with just about anything. For the more professional feel, stock up on a bunch of chinos. These two essential set of bottoms can be dressed up or down on any occasion.
- To go with those bottoms, make sure to stock up on a bunch of basic Oxford shirts, perfect for the go-to everyday look.
- Keep a diverse set of ties as well as socks handy to spice up your wardrobe every now and then. Nothing says style better than the right tie to ‘tie’ up your whole outfit.
- Every wardrobe should consist of an all rounder pair of sneakers or Converse, along with the basic formal shoes for the professional look.
- When you can afford to stretch your budget a bit more, splurge on a super stylish blazer in colors like grey, or navy blue. There need not be a reason to wear it out ever so often, but is an essential in a stylish man’s wardrobe.
- Another essential that you can shell out a few more bucks on is a suave looking pair of dress shoes. These shoes can be well out of your budget, but will be a necessary investment for those rare special occasions or parties you want to hit up!
- We’d recommend you save an few extra bucks for accessories like a good pair of designer sunglasses, scarves, or hats. Minimal accessories that can be mixed and matched with any outfit can add more to your outfit, giving you that extra ‘oomph’ factor.
Go ahead, use this guide to save and spend the right way, and still have a fashionably upgraded wardrobe. You can thank us later!
