If you are thinking of creating a capsule wardrobe to make life a little easier and less cluttered, here are a few of the key ingredients for a mens capsule wardrobe…
Suits – This is dependant on what you do for a living – if you need to wear a suit daily, it is a good idea to have three good quality suits, but if not one s plenty. The smart suit jackets can also be matched with other items such as jumpers on cooler days for a smart casual look.
Knitwear – Two good quality jumpers are all that you need for a capsule wardrobe. These can be paired with a suit jacket for the office as mentioned above or worn with jeans on the weekend.
Shirts – Depending on where you work, you will need some quality shirts such as these mens Farah Oxford shirts from EJ Menswear. If you work in an office and need to wear a shirt every day you will need five, if not two is fine – as well as this make sure you have one formal shirt for special occasions.
Jeans – When it comes to jeans, a couple of pairs of decent quality jeans are all you need. Make sure that the fit and style are good for you – have a look at this guide to buying mens jeans based on your body shape for some guidance if you are unsure of what styles you like.
T-Shirts – T shirts are great for the summer months as well as being a great item for layering in the cooler months of the year. Three t-shirts or polo shirts is all you need, make sure that you have one in white as it is easy to match with everything.
