While fashion is ever changing, there are some looks that simply never go out of fashion. Keep up with the latest trends when and where you can, but always be sure that your wardrobe has plenty of favourites you can pull out when you need to ooze effortless style. By putting some smarts into your shopping schedule, you can pick up the kind of clothes that will last you a lifetime and which will mix and match perfectly with the trends that come and go each season. Invest in the best and you'll be set up for years.
No matter what time of the year it is, you should be able to lay your hands on a pair of dark wash denim jeans. One of the most flexible items of clothing around, these are ideal for all kinds of social and business occasions, meaning you should never be without a pair. If you're looking for styles that won't be out of fashion, choose a straight or gently boot cut. Other shapes will come and go but, due to their flattering properties, these are two that will stick around for good.
All men should also consider adding a brown or beige trench coat to their repertoire. Guaranteed to never go out of style, these epitomise glamour without being over the top and ostentatious. A good quality trench will last you for years and will go well with everything from smart suits to more relaxed combinations of jeans and jumpers. It's worth investing in a smart pair of leather gloves to go with it. Keep a tight hold of classic leather gloves and you won't need another pair for years and years to come.
Buy one pair of wing tip brogues, one sturdy pair of work men style boots and one pair of trainers, and you'll have the perfect shoe no matter what the weather is doing. Offering classic charm and easily adaptable to all types of outfit, these are the best three basics you should have in your shoe collection and each will offer you plenty of wear if you look after them properly. Brown wing tips, black boots and plain trainers are the way to go, if you want footwear that shows you're no slave to fashion. These colour combinations should keep you covered every day of the week.
One of the best and longest lasting purchases you can make is a quality leather jacket. Tough, durable and perfect whether you're off to the pub or heading into the office, leather jackets are essentially investments and by choosing one in a classic design, you're ensuring its longevity as a wardrobe favourite. A menís leather biker jacket is the perfect choice for those who want a timeless look that's masculine and flexible. Or you might want to consider a tailored leather jacket if you have a more preppy style.
From a Mens leather biker jacket to a pair of straight cut jeans or a tailored shirt, there are some essentials no wardrobe should be without.
