How to Create a Minimalist Wardrobe Mens

We’re sure you’ve got plenty going on in your life which is why we’ve compiled a list of cool minimalist essentials that you should stock up on. We guarantee this list will help you save time as you navigate your way around your closet of clutter every morning so let’s begin:

Stick to Solids

Make your life easier by sticking to a couple of fashionable solids. Here are a couple of colors you can easily work with:

  • Navy
  • Gray
  • Blues
  • White
  • Blacks

These staple colors are easier to work and can be elevated to create exciting looks. Plus, staples such as grays and navy can be layered. If the lack of color bothers you, can always compensate with quirky ties and socks. This will save you the expenditure of investing in a look that you’ll only want to try out once in a blue moon: perfect for Minimalist Wardrobe Mens.

Well-Tailored Suit

Boys, boys. When are you going to learn? A well fitted, tailored suit is what makes all the difference in the world. Fetch yourself a sharp, dapper suit that’ll come in handy for all kinds of professional settings. We advise you stick to neutral shades and not experiment with the color wheel too much, since this suit of meant for work purposes.

While charcoals and greys are an excellent choice, invest in navy if you’re only buying one. We’ll touch up upon this later.

Invest in Quality

Since this post is about decluttering and downsizing your wardrobe, you might as well invest in quality clothes that can withstand extra wear and tear. And no, we’re not asking you to go crazy and buy the most expensive t-shirt on the block but don’t just go ahead and buy the cheapest stuff either.

Keep an eye out for discounts and places where you can save a couple of bucks on clothes and accessories. Also, don’t forget to check out deals and discounts on Amazon. Being selective can really pay off in the long run.

Amp Up Your Wardrobe with Dress Shirts

The classic dress shirt is the stepping stone to building your minimalist work wardrobe, but we’re going to teach you how to go the extra mile with just three basic shirts. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Basic Whites: Go back to basics with good old white dress shirt. A white shirt might not seem like the most exciting item in your closet but it’ll definitely get you through casual meeting and workdays. On the plus side, white looks great on just about anybody and can be elevated to a whole new level with a nice blazer or nice suit jacket – whatever works best for you.
  • Patterned Shirt: Invest in a patterned shirt that you can sport when you’re feeling a bit upbeat during the day. You may also with stripes and checks so long as you know how much is too much.
  • Light Blue Dress Shirt: Go the extra mile with this light blue dress shirt. It will definitely brighten up your day and will be a nice go-to shirt for formal meeting or casual day outs.

Navy Blazer

There are ancient scriptures that decree navy blazers as a must-have wardrobe essential (slight exaggeration here). But we’re not kidding around here. Blazers hold the perfect middle ground between suits and sports jackets. And because blazers come in a variety of textures, patterns and fabrics, they never really get boring.

A navy blazer works as a great staple wardrobe item that you can elevate at your will. For added finesse, opt for a single-breasted blazer with cool buttons that complement the color of fabric.

 

Accessories

While accessories certainly aren’t necessary, they’re a great way to add more character to your wardrobe without hoarding closet space. A nice workbag, a cool pair of shades and a dapper wallet are great ways to start. If you truly believe that less is more, invest in a timeless watch that you can wear every day and perhaps pass down to your great grandkids.

For extravagant nights out, we recommend you invest in a nice pair of cuff links and perhaps a few tie bars. You will also need a couple of ties depending on your office dress-code.

 

Shoes

We can’t sign off without talking about shoes. Since we’re going minimalist, we suggest you invest in a minimum of 2 dress shoes and a pair of staple white sneakers. The color of your dress shoes depend on what color dominates your wardrobe but a nice warm brown tone and a black pair are a good way to start.
