by SA. April 05, 2020
When you have spent last year pouring yourself into skin and slim fit attires, this year is a breath of fresh air for your wardrobe where straightened leg, relaxed and wide leg fits and 90’s –inspired outerwear has reigned the new chic look. Men’s fashion in 2020 is in an interesting place where men’s dressing is getting more colourful, more adventurous and less constrained by old-rules and dress codes.
Summer is a perfect time for invention and bringing new life into your style.
Whether you prefer something sleek or rugged, upscale or down-to-earth, men’s casual wear is an open invitation to dress in what feels most comfortable to you. Rather than focusing on formalities, dressing casually is about finding the right balance between comfort, individuality, and style – think fashionable yet functional outfits.
Casual wear is relaxed, with the right amount of elegance and laid back and suited for everyday use. Stylish loungewear typically blend personal comfort and individuality – since you have to mix and match different garments to create your unique look.
The lounge wear style is very much influenced by trends, from high street to high end. But if you want to future-proof your casual wardrobe, there are a few timeless pieces that every man should own. Casual wear usually revolves around a set of basics and classic essentials that form the building blocks of your personal style. From casual pants like well-fitted jeans or chinos to polo shirts, smart trendy T-shirts and sneakers, we’ve round-up here those essentials that you can mix and match to maximize the potential of your wardrobe staples.
Casual T-shirts are an essential part of any man’s basic wardrobe. The humble T-shirt is easy to wear, subtly stylish and as versatile as it gets – it can be worn with anything, even dressed-up tailoring. For your T-shirt, the rule is to keep it simple. Opt for classic crew-neck cotton T-shirts in plain colours. White, navy, black and grey are good starting points. You can spice up your casual outfit with some bold patterns, styles and designs if you want. But always make sure to find the right fit for your body type. You want a T-shirt that hugs your body but doesn’t look like a second skin. There is nothing more saddening than seeing a man pulling out the right style with the wrong fit. It will completely ruin your efforts if your clothes are overly tight and uncomfortable or too baggy and sloppy. If you invest time defining your style, make sure that the execution is right.
One level of formality above the T-shirt, the Polo shirt is another essential in your wardrobe. You can’t go wrong when dressing casually if you combine a premium pair of jeans with a polo shirt. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a good polo shirt but you do need to make sure that it fits your body type. That said, there are a few premium polo shirts that are absolutely beautiful with high-quality materials and cut. So if you want to spend more on a polo shirt, you absolutely can.
Depending on the occasion and climate, a pair of cargo or Bermuda shorts can be appropriate. They should be in high-quality fabrics and fit you well. Even if the occasion is relaxed enough to wear shorts, make sure that you don’t look sloppy.
Accessories are perfect to add a touch of personality to your casual outfit and enhance your overall look. You can stay consistent with accessories that will support your look or go completely in the opposite direction to create your own unique style. Think a high-end watch with your most casual outfit or a dressed down belt with your premium denim.
Elevate and personalize your look with one or two items. Once you have the foundations of your style in place, you can add your own personality to your outfit by playing with accessories such as your belt, watch strap, socks, etc. A few timeless items are worth investing more in. Some items in your wardrobe won’t last for more than a season. You shouldn’t spend too much on those. But others will stay with you for years. That’s the case with a premium bomber jacket, high-end sneakers, or a luxury watch, for example. Decide which pieces you want to keep and invest in quality over quantity.
