You think jeans and tee is good enough, but why just be good enough when you can be your best. For this blog I wanted to share the dude’s side of the basics. This will pretty much emulate my previous Parisian Chic blog. I picked out five top basic things a dude needs in his closet. It’s easy and available everywhere.
Instead of light jacket try using a blazer with your tees and pair it with nice chinos, cords or even jeans. It will keep you warm and still be in style.
I wanted to use a cardigan instead of a V-neck sweater. A sweater on guys are overly used so why not stand out amongst the rest and use a navy cardigan. It has the same effect as a sweater but a bit more edgy. Keep the color simple and solid. Printed cardigans kind of remind me of a grandpa.
The WHITE TEE
When you reach a certain age, it’s time to give the graphic tees a rest. Try a simple white tee. It’s a classic and really easy to style. Plus, it’s cheap.
The LEATHER JACKET
Now this is a personal choice. I think some guys can totally pull off the bad boy motorcycle jacket but B definitely can’t. So, I chose this letterman jacket for him.. It fits his personality and is easy to wear.
The BLACK SUIT
This is the equivalent to a LBD for the ladies. Every man ( I mean anyone above the age of 21 ) should have a nice fitted black suit. It can really save the day. It can be formal or casual. For this, it’s pretty casual but just add a bow tie or even a skinny black tie then you can wear it to a black tie event. The best way to stand out with a black suit is pairing it with one awesome shoes. His favorite Dragan Mrdja blue suede shoes just pop with this outfit.
I love how guys nowadays are concerned about their own personal style. Especially here in Los Angeles. The best designers out there are men; Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Elie Saab and Alber Elbaz. It’s not that difficult to add some style into your day to day outfit. It’s as easy as switching your hoodie for a nice blazer or trench. I hope this will inspire you guys out there. Nothing says sexy more than a nice confident man.
