Casual outfits for men consist of items that can be easily worn with minimal effort. Choose timeless pieces that can be paired with pretty much anything in your wardrobe. Casual chic should, by definition, fall under the category that you’re happy wearing every day.
With so much inspiration available from all over the world – fashion designers, celebrities, models and now influencers – there are many ways to get tips for casual men’s outfits. But even so, sometimes a simple yet classic look can go a long way (like a basic printed tee with khaki trousers and sneakers).
Decoding casual-chic style for men
If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe by adding a variety of capsule pieces, my latest men’s fashion blog post is here to help. Capsule clothing is a relatively new term used to describe something ‘basic’, such as solid colored clothing. Still, there are few or no rules when it comes to men’s style (as long as it looks good!) Remember to tailor your outfit to your hair, face shape, and body shape. Maintain your trademark style but remember to mix it up once in a while to add some versatility.
10 Essential Basic Fashion Items for Men
white button down shirt
Simply put, a slim-fit tailored shirt is one of those essential items that you must have. It can be worn smartly with a tie and belt and can be worn casually in a half tucked fashion. With long-sleeved and short-sleeved styles, a white shirt is appropriate no matter the temperature.
smart casual blazer
A classic blazer is ideal for livening up an otherwise basic outfit – throw on a shirt and trousers for instant smart appeal. If you’re feeling dandy, pair it with a roll-neck jumper for a stand-out look. Choose linen blazers in the summer (to keep cool) and tweeds to stay nice and warm in the winter.
Every stylish man deserves a well-tailored suit in his clothing collection. If you choose a simple color (black/grey/navy), you can create an almost endless amount of outfit styles using different ties, pocket squares, and shoes.
Overcoats (especially during the autumn and winter seasons) are essential, both to keep warm but also to look the part. The long coat has an unmatched elegance and works well with a turtleneck jumper and skinny jeans. If you’re unsure about color choices, classic camel is a good bet! Other options would be charcoal, navy or olive!
Jumpers and chunky knitwear never go out of fashion and ensure you stay warm in the chilly weather. There are almost limitless colors to choose from, but for this season, I’ll be choosing darker tones including browns, greens, and burgundy.
An easy way to keep your style on trend is with a variety of casual jackets. The bomber jacket, for example, is a great item to throw on easily in a pinch, yet still ensure you look fashionable. Another great idea is to choose an aviator jacket, which can be paired with skinny jeans and boots, creating an on-trend outfit.
Hoodies have come a long way since they were only associated with sports – now, they can spice up a simple urban look, especially when paired with a denim or leather jacket.
Dark denim jeans are one of the easiest pairs to pair with almost anything. Crew neck jumper and leather jacket complete the look; Otherwise, pair them with a dark button-down shirt for a smart-casual look.
Light denim is often a tricky beast, as cheaper models can end up looking worn (especially when pre-distressing looks very fake!). If you find a good pair, you’re golden, matching well with suede Chelsea boots or cool sneakers.
brown brogue shoes
Tan lace-up shoes are chic and timeless and can be rocked with trousers for a nice formal look or even dark denim for an eye-catching smart-casual getup.
It’s best to choose a few classics for your wardrobe, rather than opting for trends that go out of fashion in a heartbeat. That way, you can work within your budget and keep everything versatile by adding a few standout pieces. But also remember, wear whatever you feel comfortable in; Keep It Stylish!
