Irrespective of the social divide you belong to, there are certain fashion items you must have in your wardrobe as a man. You don’t have to be rich to have these fashion items as there are relatively cheap yet classy ones. The most important thing is for you to know what these items are and why it would do you a world of good to have them in your wardrobe.
If you’re an African man (particularly Nigerian), it is important for you to have at least one native attire in your wardrobe. The attire is important as it reflects your roots and you’d always have one occasion or the other than would require you wear such attires. More so, it is essential you have at least one trendy piece which can be made by an array of Nigerian fashion designers that abound everywhere.
The importance of the handkerchief has been grossly understated. It is normal to see men with running nose carrying one but having one for the occasional sneeze and cough is necessary given the fact that you don’t want to spread your germs around. Use one and don’t display it. Keep it stealthy.
It’s awkward to always have to pull out your phone to check the time. Having a wristwatch is not only fashionable but also comes with its usefulness. Imagine a cute lady you got your eyes on asks you for the time and you simply pull back your sleeves and reveal a classy choice of watch before revealing the time to her. This can make a world of difference.
A Sleek Leather Wallet
The wallet helps to keep your cash and ATM cards handy and as such is a must-have fashion accessory that every man should own. Leather wallets are great for both formal and casual attires and whether you choose a black or brown coloured wallet, it blends in and never goes out of fashion.
It is important that you have at least one bespoke suit for whatever corporate event you will be attending. Even if you hardly attend events that require you wear a suit, still get one as It’s embarrassing to appear at formal events in casual wears. If you need only one suit, it’s ideal to buy a black coloured, pinstripe single-breasted suit. Look out for a classic cut that hardly goes out of style but would only require you to change your shirt and tie for different events.
Of course! You’d require Ties to go along with your suit. It’s essential you have a variety of ties but going for a solid tie would do you a lot of good. You could also go for diagonal stripe ties but remember to go for trendy styles and colours if you wear ties on a regular basis.
Shoes and Belts
Perhaps the greatest fashion mishap you can undertake is to mismatch the colour of your belt with that of your shoes. Wearing black shoes and a black belt is a fashion fundamental and will complete your suave look for any occasion, be it casual or formal. As such you should have a pair of black leather shoes and a black leather belt.
Blue jeans are a classic item you should have in your wardrobe. The colour looks good irrespective of the age of the jeans added to the fact that they are comfortable, versatile and can be combined with an array of shoes from sneakers to sandals, or loafers to provide a great sporty look.
It is essential to have Casual shirts such as a polo or button down in your wardrobe. They can go well with jeans or other casual chinos trousers.
Want to smell good? Then get yourself a bottle of perfume, roll on and body spray that smells cool and lasts longer. They will help to alleviate body odours that are common to the male specie.
