Hello my beautiful readers,
How are you this beautiful Thursday? I am fine and to be honest am so happy I’m still able to keep up my end of the deal, day 4 of my all-week-challenge of posting and in all honesty I came too close to not posting today’s article. I had one of those writers block and a call to one of my amazing friends and this idea just popped up.
I have always focused on my personal style and from time to time tipped on women styling tips.. so I have decided to extend this to my male readers out there and I didn’t know till recently that this is a demanding category… so I promise to share this tips to
help or guide you in your style journey… with that being said thank you for stopping by hope you stick around and enjoy this first post on the gentleman guide.
It’s going to be a little different no trapper keeper or sharpened pencils the key focus is on the freshness. I have put together the essentials that will help you start a fresh for the beginners and a checklist for the amateur’s. I want you to feel, look & think sharp. so this is not about the clothes people it’s about the GENTLEMEN.
They are just staple pieces that every gentleman should own from basic denim & a white plain t-shirt, to a beautiful tuxedo and beautiful leather shoes, here I have compiled you a list of 20 to guide you through:
Every man needs a pair of trendy blue jeans, they are a fun pair to style and to top it all jeans is an all-season kind of outfit and a good pair goes a long way… and for some as they wear out they get more stylish.
This is another staple piece that is never out of style, a classic that can be paired with a blue jeans or with a short to give you the ultimate fun weekend look… you can opt for a rounded collar type of t-shirt or a v-neck the choice is yours.
You can’t have too many neutrals and this can be an alternative to the whitey up there, this staple piece can help create the model-off-duty vibe. I mean come on who doesn’t love a bit of grey in their life?
This serves for mostly work or professional look for any Monday to Friday look. a simple navy or grey single breasted will see you through work to the smarter evening events.
The gentlemen’s best friend…am I right? every gentlemen knows a Tuxedo is a must in the collection in the wardrobe, I should totally have started with this to emphasize. no gentleman is complete without a fitting black tuxedo on the go for any special occasion.
Others call this a blazer, it’s a smarter way to bring or better yet dress up any outfit… it adds a bit of class and style to an individual… get yours in Navy for a multi-purpose looks.
whether worn open collared & chinos or dressed up with a suit and a tie, a white crispy shirt is an absolute must.
I know for some guys pink can be intimidating but personally I find it kinda sexy if a guy can pull off a pink shirt. Anyways, similar to the crispy whites, this babes can be dressed up to complement a work attire or button down for a casual look.
Make like a true gent and on an iconic trench come rain, storm or high waters.
Only the perfect way to tighten up an outfit, be it a leather bomber jacket or a biker jacket,it will add a panache to every gentleman’s style.
a beautiful cashmere jumper never runs out of style trust me. its ideal for the cold winters and when the chills of summer kicks in.
the best way to fulfill the smart-casual dress codes, pair this babes with a laid work office for a cool Friday look. Get the neutrals as well for a variety of style.
Ever heard of shoes that improve with age? well you are about to… you can never go wrong with a pair of brown brogues… the fun part of being a guy… no many colors necessary to stand out.
this baby will accompany you to work and smart occasions. let’s be honest you can tell a lot about a man from the shoes he wears… so Gents let’s make it count.
whats a gentleman clean outfit without a tie? I will give you a minute to answer…
Cuff links brings an official outfit together and adds a class level to a gentleman.
Well what do I say about this… the old tale that goes far back states… a gentleman shall not be caught in the rain.
Guys will ONLY be guys…
Last but not least, a pair of cool sunglasses that can go a long way and they can worn on summer and winter days alike.
And there you have it folk my idea of a gentleman’s starter kit… for the gents feel free to take an idea from my book and for the ladies this can be used as an ideal gift for HIM. Till then am proud of my day four I wish you a great day… leave me comments and suggestions on the comments below.
