Men’s wardrobe essentials, clothing items, and accessories for an all-encompassing yet minimalistic capsule wardrobe
We’re living in an increasingly minimalistic world. As the world moves towards sustainability through mindful production and waste reduction, people downsize their wardrobes to include only essential items, and the men in Miami are no exception. Enter capsule wardrobes.
Here are the men’s wardrobe essentials for the warmer months you’ll actually want to wear.
Make sure you have at least two types of outerwear for the spring and summer months. Start with a trench coat because it looks good on everyone, and select lightweight denim or dark jacket for when you’re only wearing one for the sake of wearing one.
A Monochrome Suit
Get a suit in a timeless black color and make sure the pants are a neutral length and fit you just right instead of following any of the trends out there. For instance, wide-leg trousers are all the rage, but they’re a trend, and like all trends, they too are temporary.
Don’t make the mistake of following a trend. Instead, splurge on a tailormade suit that you can wear for as long as you want. You can also pair the blazer, shirt, and other individual components with T-shirts and jeans to create a whole new look.
Keep your T-shirts extremely plain and simple. If you want patterns, don’t go beyond stripes. Stripes can look good on any occasion, but any other print may be a risk. Go with the crewneck options because they’re always a safe bet, and select neutral colors that can pair well with all your bottoms.
Apply the same logic to button-downs. Keep them plain and simple and get them in neutral colors you can wear with both jeans and suit pants. You can also get seven different shirt colors for every day of the week.
Play safe when it comes to jeans. You want them to last as long as possible, so don’t get anything fancy like faded or ripped jeans. Keep your denim simple and sensible in black, white, dark blue, and maybe even a lighter blue to pair with your tops. Don’t wash a pair until after you’ve worn it at least ten times to make it last longer.
Belt and Footwear
Buy a single belt that fits you just right and goes with all your clothes. Make sure it’s good quality and won’t break or show signs of stretching after a few wears.
As for the footwear, get three pairs of shoes in black, brown, and tan. You can replace the tan with white if you prefer the color, but limit yourself to three pairs. Add a pair of white sneakers to these pairs for your casual wear, and you have all the wardrobe essentials you need for the warm season.
